Thinking about updating your New Jersey or New York metropolitan home with energy-efficient, Energy Star certified replacement patio doors? Have you checked out the Renewal by Andersen visualizer tool that allows you to design patio doors for your home, and view a digital rendering on your computer or mobile device?

You can start by choosing a basic style – either a contemporary sliding patio door, a hinged-French style replacement patio door, or a French-style slider. Once you’ve decided on a style, you will notice you can rotate the image to get a closer look at all interior and exterior surfaces, including the top and bottom of individual door panels.

Then, the fun begins. Customize your patio door with the decorative features you prefer and elements that will match or contrast existing décor and architectural design.

You can:

  • Try on any of the interior or exterior color options
  • Compare hardware finishes for both sliding and swing in/swing out hinged patio doors solutions
  • Learn more about insect screen choices
  • Explore grille patterns available

Glass Options for Replacement Patio Doors

One thing you may notice is that replacement patio door glass choices are described on the main visualizer page; however, you cannot try on the various glass selections. This is because unless you choose a patterned glass, there is very little aesthetic difference between the high-performance glass solution that blocks up to 95% of harmful UV rays, or the high-performance glass solution that is rated highest for blocking solar heat gain, or the basic low-E glass that works well in most rooms where you don’t want or need to reduce light levels or protect valuable artwork.

Patterned glass, on the other hand comes in four distinct selections designed to distort the view through the glass to add privacy and elegance while allowing ample natural sunlight.

Replacement patio door patterned glass design options include:

  • Obscure Pattern
  • Reed Pattern
  • Cascade Pattern
  • Fern Pattern

(Patterned glass samples are available for viewing in this post on our showroom floor, or your personal replacement window consultant can bring samples to the private, in-home visit for your consideration.)

Choosing a Replacement Patio Door Style for Your Home

There are basically two different replacement patio door styles – sliding patio doors and hinged patio doors. Within each style group there are many standard and custom configurations, options for maximizing energy efficiency and decorative choices to create truly unique patio entrances.

Space often dictates whether a homeowner chooses a sliding or hinged patio door (including French doors).

Sliding doors are perfect for areas with limited interior and exterior floor space. Hinged doors can be configured to swing in or swing out, so there is potential for adding a hinged door that won’t interfere with traffic patterns when either your interior or exterior has ample space for opening the door.
