Patio doors make a great addition to any home: they’re easy to open and provide a nice view of your backyard. Of course, like any other kind of door, they have a few disadvantages. Luckily, manufacturers have begun introducing features that counter patio doors’ inherent weaknesses.
If you’re planning to buy new vinyl patio doors, we highly recommend ProviVia’s® Endure™ line of vinyl patio doors. D-Wing Construction, a top roofing contractor in the state, elaborates more on the product’s benefits below.
ComforTech™ Warm Edge Glazing
Getting a nicer view of your backyard usually comes at a cost—you’d need to install doors and windows with a wide glass area, which in turn increases the risk of heat loss. This isn’t a problem for Endure vinyl patio doors. Even with a larger glass panel, they can still prevent heat loss through their Neopor® insulated vinyl frames and ComforTech Warm Edge glazed windows. These two features helped the doors earn an ENERGY STAR® certification.
Protection Against Unwanted Guests
Vinyl patio doors are also known for their ease of operation—a gentle push is all it takes to slide them open. The problem is patio doors’ latches are fairly easy to break, making it easier for unwanted guests to enter your home. However, you can rest easy at night knowing that the Endure line meets stringent industry standards for reinforcement against forced entry.
A common complaint we hear from clients about conventional patio doors is their visual appeal. It’s not uncommon for patio doors to have bumps on the corner of their frame, but these aren’t caused by an installation error—they‘re just byproducts of the traditional welding process. To make sure the weld line on its doors are clean and straight, ProVia introduced its FineLine technology to its Endure patio doors.
If you’re particularly concerned about your home’s curb appeal, don’t forget the other parts of your exterior, like your roof and siding—they should have a clean aesthetic as well. To maximize your patio doors’ contribution to your home’s curb appeal, make sure to ask an experienced contractor about any other modifications you need to make.
