If you’re looking to update your outside space, whatever you do, don’t forget about the Patio Door! Too often, homeowners are so focused on the deck and patio furniture, that the patio door can fall by the wayside. And that’s the last thing you want to happen because every time you use that old patio door to go outside, it will be a constant reminder that it doesn’t match your new, beautiful outdoor living space.
Here are some signs that it’s time for a new patio door:
Too hard to open
This might be the most annoying thing about an old patio door. It gets hung up in the track, and you have to lift or jiggle it to get it to move. If you’ve been through this, you know exactly what we’re talking about. You’ve probably forgotten what it’s like to be able to easily slide the door to get out.
Too easy to open
When you start worrying that a robber could have easy access to your home, it’s time to invest in a new patio door. Your safety is far more important than anything. And a broken patio door could make you an easy target.
Unlike most windows, patio doors take up a lot of space! So when it starts getting old, and the seals are deteriorating, you’re really going to feel a breeze seep around the edges. A new patio door will solve that problem.
