We’ve said it once and we will say it again – replacement windows can help save you so much money by reducing energy costs. With that being said (again), replacement patio doors can help reduce your monthly heating and cooling bills even more! While patio doors are built to last, unfortunately, they don’t last forever and there will come a time when you need to replace them. But how do you know when that time is?
Your door is hard to open and close
As patio doors age, things can warp or get damaged in any number of ways, including interior issues. Does your door stick when you open and close it? While this may seem like a minor irritant and nothing serious, it’s a pretty good indicator that it’s time for a new door.
Your patio door is leaking
That’s right, it’s not just roofs that leak. If your door isn’t opening and closing properly, it’s most likely not working well in protecting your home. Watch your door when it rains and if you notice water is getting inside your home you will want to get a new door immediately. After all, the point of a door is to keep outdoor elements out of your home!
You feel a draft
Stand near your sliding door when it is hot or cold outside and see if you feel a change in temperature. If you notice it is hotter or colder near your door or you notice a slight wind, it means you are losing climate controlled air from inside your home costing you big bucks and ultimately, reducing the comfort of your home.
Your door is outdated
Even if your patio door functions perfectly, if you’ve changed everything around and it no longer looks good in your home or matches your current style, there’s no point in keeping it around. A new patio door is easy to install and cost-effective, so you don’t have to put it off.
