Understandably most people don't spend much time thinking about their patio doors.  Why would anyone?  But when your trusty sliding glass door begins to show its true age, you'll need to start thinking about a replacement sooner than later.  For many, this is the door that came with the house when it was purchased.  Others might find themselves moving into a home with a sliding door in need of immediate TLC.  Regardless of the specifics, knowing what to look for when door shopping can help you make a purchase you'll be pleased with for years.

Wonder Windows has been helping homeowners with doors for over 50 years, so we thought we'd share a few of the basics.  Here are some points to consider when buying new sliding patio glass doors in the Rochester area.

Sliding Patio Door

Improve Look & Value of Home

We tend to think of sliding doors in terms of functionality and safety, but they also play a key role in the overall appearance of your home's interior and exterior.  Today's glass patio doors can be purchased in a diverse array of colors and styles, allowing you to match your new door with the exact shade and motif of your d├ęcor.  If you're planning on staying in your home, the right door will add years of beauty and atmosphere while giving you a crystal clear view of the world outside.  If you're moving, it could help add value and some much-needed curb appeal.

Save Money on Heating & AC Bills

As sliding doors age they have tendency to lose some of their heat/cold trapping integrity.  The longer it's used in this compromised condition, the more heat and cold is allowed to escape with each pass.  Swapping your old one for a more modern energy-efficient sliding glass door is a smart way to improve your home, all while cutting the cost of air conditioning and heating expenses.  Our OKNA Elegante Victorian Sliding Doors are a popular option in Rochester, and one of Wonder Windows' best sellers.

Enhanced & Decorative Sliding Doors

If you're looking for a replacement patio door with a bit more flare and function than the standards, there are plenty of options for those seeking something outside the box.  This includes custom sliding doors with premium trim and hardware, enhanced security features or even higher levels of energy efficiency.  Another way to get the most from your new sliding door is to consider adding integrated mini blinds, tint or other unique feature.  The Wonder Windows staff is here and ready to show you just how many possibilities exist.
