Sliding Patio Doors Are Hard to Operate

Improvements in hardware and engineering have made today’s sliding patio doors easier to operate. Older models usually simply sliding the bottom gasket of the door via the track, making larger units hard to open and close. Modern styles like lift-slide doors are top-hung, meaning the panels are lifted from the floor. These doors usually have top-grade hardware, such as precision rollers, for smooth and seamless operation. 

Sliding Patio Doors Aren’t Energy-Efficient

The energy efficiency of replacement windows and doors depends on their material and components. For instance, multi-pane glass can prevent heat gain in summer and heat loss in winter. At Renewal by Andersen®, our patio doors feature dual-pane High-Performance Low-E4®  glass. Together with our insulated panel options and expert installation, we assure you that our sliding doors can give you energy savings.
