As we move closer to the end of 2017, we have observed several trends that we believe will influence how homeowners will buy patio doors during the next few years. Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix shares some of the trends you should keep an eye on in case you’re planning to buy new patio doors soon:
With today’s rising energy costs, energy efficiency is a trend that won’t go away anytime soon. Today’s manufacturing technologies have evolved to the point where you can enjoy substantial, long-term savings on your energy consumption with a single window replacement project. Renewal by Andersen patio doors are designed for energy efficiency. The combination of our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass options and insulated frame material helps ensure low U-factor and solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) values. This means our patio doors will keep your indoors warm during winter and cool during summer, helping reduce your energy consumption.
Large Patio Doors
Recent remodeling projects often involve incorporating elements of modern architecture into traditional home styles, such as spacious interiors and increased natural lighting. Window walls are becoming more popular, and what better way to complement these glass walls than with large patio doors? Whether you prefer a hinged French door or sliding contemporary doors, we can build the patio door that fits your exact size requirements.
Dark colors add drama and create a unique look that can set your home apart from traditional color palettes. Remodelers and manufacturers are expanding their color selections to include dark roofs, trim, and siding. Renewal by Andersen offers dark exterior frame colors, including black finish for our replacement windows and Terratone® for our patio doors.
Using sustainable materials is another trending remodeling criteria among homeowners, thanks to increased awareness of its environmental benefits. You may be surprised that our parent company, Andersen® Corporation, has been ahead of the curve by supporting sustainable practices decades ago. In fact, the exclusive Fibrex® material window frames frames are a product of these practices: they contain 40% wood fiber by weight that’s reclaimed from our wood trimmings. Likewise, the High-Performance Low-E4 glass used in our patio doors and windows contain at least 12% reclaimed glass by weight.
