Patios are often the highlight of the summer in Haverhill, so it’s important to add a patio door that meets your unique needs. Patios offer a break from the busy to-do’s and summer schedules, providing a good place to relax with the family, entertain guests or simply get some rays.
There are a number of patio doors that offer different benefits for your unique patio needs, and we can sometimes overlook how vital the door is to the functionality of your patio. Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors know the tips and tricks to help you find the proper patio door when you understand your current one just isn’t doing your patio justice.
If you’re considering a replacement door for your patio this summer, here are some of the things to think about when going with a new model:
- Energy efficiency—Similar to what we say with our windows, doors play a huge role in the overall energy efficiency of a house. Different patio door materials have different energy efficient perks. For example, vinyl doors are recognized for easy maintenance while wood doors have more design flexibility with resilient interior and exterior products. Some terms that you should keep an eye out for if energy efficiency is important in your replacement patio door assessment are: Low-E, ENERGY STAR rated and inert gas-filled insulated glass.
- Fitting in with your outdoor living space—Each patio is distinctive; some are raised above your backyard, others are four-season porches, and everything in between. Determining the use of your patio will help you decide if you have enough space for a swinging hinged door or if you would like a sliding patio door. If you also have a backyard that you take pride in or have one with a view, a patio door with an unobstructed view, or even a larger bi-parting door, could be the right choice.
- Design and model—At our Haverhill showroom, we have a number of patio door options such as our Architect Series® with wood doors, Designer Series® with snap-in window technology or our Pella® 450 Series with a variety of sizes, features and options. All are energy efficient and have the price to fit your budget.
With all of these things to consider, don’t get stressed—our Haverhill specialists are always available to help you select the right door for your patio. Give us a call at 978-373-2500 or request an appointment with us online.
