Ah, summer. The weather is nice and warm, there is more daylight, and it’s a great time to sit outside on the patio to relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoors with friends and family. Does your home need a new patio door? Here are some key reasons why you should consider installing a new patio door this summer.
#1: A new patio door is energy efficient.
A new patio door will help decrease your energy bills because of the insulation that it provides. If you have steadily noticed an increase in your energy bills, consider if your current patio door is old and leaking air in or out. New patio doors are constructed with thick, top quality glass. This means that you’ll not only notice a difference not only in the energy bill, but you will also notice a difference in sound reduction.
#2: A new patio door brings in more natural light.
There’s nothing better than a beautiful Pacific Northwest day that is full of blue skies and sun. If you want to bring in natural light and enjoy the beauty of the outside while you’re inside your home, a quality patio door can do just that. Our bodies crave natural light and it can be great for our minds, too! Using natural light in your home creates a welcoming space in any area of the home.
#3: A new patio door is perfect for summer entertaining.
An outdoor living space is an extension of your home and will help connect the inside of your home to the outside. Imagine those long, warm nights outside on the patio with the people you love – a great patio door will enhance those great times together! Barbecues, graduation celebrations, cookouts, birthday parties, or just dessert with your closest friends outside on your patio will make the summer more fun. With a new patio door that opens and closes well, you’ll be able to entertain throughout the summer with ease.
#4: A new patio door offers security.
Your family should feel safe and secure at all times in your home and old doors that don’t open, close, or lock well simply don’t provide the level of security you need. Securing your home with a gliding or hinged patio door that offer multiple locking options is a great idea so you can feel safe and secure no matter what.
