Do you have a patio door that sticks or rattles? Is it ugly and detracting from the appearance of your home? Is it broken or unsafe? These are all great reasons to upgrade to a new patio door. Is it too much to ask to have a door that will slide open and closed every time without a hitch? Of course not. You deserve the very best when it comes to your patio doors. Check out these four reasons it may be time to replace them.
1. It’s Old and Ugly
This is the top reason homeowners decide to switch out their patio doors. Perhaps you just underwent a home remodel and your existing doors just don’t fit in with the décor. Or maybe your existing door is just plain unattractive and outdated. In this case, it’s time for a change so you can bring up the standards of your indoor décor.
2. Sliding Mechanism is Faulty
This is definitely one of the top concerns with old or sub-par patio doors. Do yours stick and catch every time you open them up? Not only is this annoying, it’s very dangerous. You could trip and fall, bump into the door, or worse, it’s actually a fire hazard. With a new, durable patio door, you can slide it open and closed with the touch of a finger. Voila, you get the comfort and ease of operation you need in a door that you use frequently to access the outdoors.
3. Too Much Time on Maintenance
Are you wasting your Saturdays fixing up stuff around the house, including your squeaky, stick patio door? A new patio door will end all that. This is due to all the newer, state of the art materials inherent with Bristol doors. They are made to glide open and closed with the tap of your finger, secured by the highest quality locking mechanisms — our exclusive Quattro-IV four-point locking system to be exact. These locks have two steel locking bars that bolt into steel receivers within the sill and head, plus you get another keyed security and ventilation lock for extra peace of mind.
4. Energy Loss
Old patio doors leak energy, so in winter, you’re losing valuable heat and in summer, you’re losing valuable AC air. And if your energy bills are going up on top of that and there’s no other reason for it, your old patio door could be to blame. With a new one, you get a higher efficiency glass and frame that keeps airs inside where it belongs. Bonus: you can keep your energy bills down to a manageable level.
So there you have it – four reasons why you should replace your patio doors. Spring is a great time to tackle this project!
