Smart Tips on Choosing the Right Patio Door Hardware

Hardware is a critical component of patio doors. From a functional standpoint, the right pieces make it easy for your units to perform without demanding too much maintenance. From an aesthetic one, they contribute to the beauty of the whole and help tie other home design elements together.

Smart Tips on Choosing the Right Patio Door Hardware

With a huge array of hardware styles and finishes, Renewal by Andersen® of Houston patio doors are customizable to the last detail. But to ensure the interior and exterior handles of your units are impeccably designed, keep these tips in mind:

Think About Safety

Remember that patio doors guard one of the primary entry points to your home. Without a sophisticated locking mechanism, they would offer little defense against intruders.

The lock is one of the attractive features of our doors. Our traditional hinged type is outfitted with a five-point locking system that secures both panels when activated. On the other hand, our sliding models are equipped with an advanced reach-out lock that pulls the panel snugly into the jamb. They also come with an optional auxiliary foot lock that adds an extra measure of security. To burglar-proof your home when you’re out, our exterior keyed locks are available on all our doors.

Put a Premium on Style

Every detail of the hardware contributes not just to the beauty of the patio doors, but also to the entire space. Its style and finish could reinforce or disrupt the existing theme of your room. For instance, our Covington™ handle in bright brass could be a reminder of the traditional aesthetic, while our Newbury® in polished chrome could evoke modernism.

Don’t Forget About Upkeep

A good motive for doing a door replacement is it eliminates costly maintenance. After all, nobody wants to deal with hardware pieces that succumb easily to tarnish and corrosion. Fortunately, our Estate™ collection of metallic finishes are meant to stand the test of time. They’re forged from solid brass, not stamped, to withstand the rigors of nature and everyday use.
