Sliding patio doors work well with traditional and contemporary homes.

Sliding patio doors work well with traditional and contemporary homes. We partner with Anderson to give homeowners high-quality patio doors. With the right selection of door frame and grille, you can transform your home with aesthetically pleasing and durable sliding patio doors. Here are the benefits of Andersen patio doors in particular.

Let The Sunshine In

If you crave abundant daylight, then patio doors are indeed a must. When you let more sunshine into your home, this is a technique called “daylighting.” This practice helps to make your home look more well-lit, cheerful, and even spacious. When homeowners have exposure to day-and-night time cycles, it helps them to sleep better. Another benefit is that you can lower your energy bill by taking away the need for a lot of daytime electrical lighting.

You Can Save Space With Sliding Patio Doors

When a door swings open, it takes up a lot of space. Sliding patio doors don’t need clearance. This advantage works well for any area with limited square footage. You’ll notice that you have more freedom to rearrange your patio furniture any way that you like.

Look Forward to Less Sticking

One issue with sliding glass doors is that they stick, especially in extreme temperatures. Anderson doors offer weather-resistant framing options, along with adjustable self-lubricating tandem rollers. These rollers use steel wheels and ball bearings. With these two features in effect, it makes for a smooth operation. 

Andersen Sliding Patio Doors are Energy-Efficient

Andersen’s dual panel High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass help reduce thermal transfer. In the winter, it’s excellent for your home to have as much heat as possible. During the summer, it’s great when your home retains cold air. Andersen’s patio doors are top-of-the-line when it comes to durability, energy-efficiency, and aesthetics. 

Not Interested in Sliding Doors? No Worries!

One alternative to sliding patio doors is french doors, which Andersen offers as well. French doors are excellent for a homeowner that wants to uphold a traditional style. Whatever selection you make, you can rest assured that it’s a solid decision.
