Top 4 Benefits to Expect From Sliding French Patio Doors

It’s a bit hard to imagine that something as simple as a patio door can make such a huge difference to your home’s looks, comfort and energy efficiency. But most of the advantages it can provide is influenced by your choice of door style. Should you go for traditional French patio doors, for instance? Or, perhaps, getting sliding Contemporary doors is the better idea?

If you can’t decide, your premier windows and doors company, Renewal by Andersen® of San Francisco offers a third option – sliding French patio doors. Here’s how this creative mash-up of two door styles can benefit you:

  1. Increased square footage: Classic French doors create a wide opening that allows for a smoother transition between your interiors and patio. But they need swing space to do that, and this can hinder furniture placement and interrupt traffic patterns. Sliding French doors, on the other hand, don’t. They fit neatly to the side when open, making them especially handy when space is at a premium in your home.
  1. Effortless operation: Renewal by Andersen sliding French doors glide smoothly thanks to their two adjustable, self-lubricating tandem rollers that use steel wheels with ball bearings. This means no jamming or sticking. Like our gliding windows, our sliding French patio doors take little effort to operate, so they can be extremely helpful to those experiencing difficulties with fine motor skills.
  1. Unmatched versatility: The unique design of our sliding French patio doors allow them to match with both traditional and modern home styles. In fact, you can further add to architectural accuracy by customizing your doors with your choice of interior-exterior color combinations, hardware options and finishes, and grille patterns. If you want to give your home a warm and natural vibe, our sliding French patio doors are available in stainable wood grain finishes.
  1. Greater energy efficiency: Aside from good looks and smooth operation, our sliding French patio doors can also lower your reliance on artificial lighting. They make this possible with their advanced and expansive glass, which lets plenty of natural light into your home – minus the excess glare and heat transfer. This means you can keep a brighter, more comfortable home while saving considerably on energy.
