Sometimes, big aesthetic upgrades can come from small changes. One popular way to improve the look of your home is to replace old doors with new ones and there’s nothing classier than putting up some French doors to round out the look of an old patio. If you’re considering taking out your sliding doors and getting a new pair of French patio doors, our experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City recommend considering the points discussed below.
Not a DIY Project
Buying a brand-new door and replacing your old one might seem like an afternoon’s worth of work for an enterprising homeowner but it is not. The whole project is more complex than it seems, so it’s always a good idea to call the professionals. This will not only save you time, money, and effort, but it will also guarantee that you’re making the most out of your doors.
Choose the Right Replacement
Many homeowners believe that the options for patio doors are fairly limited into two main categories: French and sliding doors. The truth is you have a number of options to choose from. Some types, like traditional center-swing patio doors, offer the same aesthetic appeal as a French door but with less clearance requirements (only one side opens, the other side is fixed). Talk to your local contractor to learn more about your choices so you know you’re making the right decision.
Of course, you could also choose to replace an old sliding door with a newer one. This will allow you to resolve some of the common issues that plague sliding doors such as sticky doors, warped rails and even damaged sliders. If a sliding door is already the perfect type of door for your home, then it’s fine to stick with what you already know would work.
