Designing the perfect replacement sliding patio door for your New Jersey or New York metro home doesn’t have to be complicated or stressful. Renewal by Andersen has simplified the process from start to finish with our signature service.
Here’s what you need to know to about the difference between custom-designed and built replacement patio doors and the individual elements and accessories.
The typical standard off-the-shelf patio door is usually between 6 feet and 7 feet tall. There are also 8 foot and 10 foot tall options for homes with higher ceilings. Width varies, depending on whether you prefer a two-panel or three-panel configuration. Installing a ready-built door may involve additional construction if you want to enlarge (or reduce) the opening, or have an unusual size that doesn’t align with prebuilt selections.
Customized sliding replacement patio doors are built to precisely fit the opening left when we remove your existing entrance door. No additional construction is necessary.
The most common replacement patio door configurations available include one stationary door and one operable panel, two operable panels or a three-panel solution with a fixed center panel and two flanking panels that slide over the center pane.
Alternative configurations are possible in some settings, and homeowners may choose to add side lites or accent windows above the patio door as an aesthetic element. Accent windows may be operable or fixed. Geometric shaped accent windows are available for those who want to add a unique feature or complement other architectural features.
When designing custom patio doors for your home, you have opportunities to choose the features and accessories you want and need to make your home more functional, more comfortable and more beautiful. Plus, modern technology allows you to enhance the energy-efficiency by specifically designing your side or backyard entrance door based on your house orientation to the sun, weather patterns, your lifestyle and the surrounding landscape and structures.
Along with custom sizes, other features include:
