Your patio door is only as good as its hardware. These essential components allow you smooth access to and from your living spaces while maintaining home security along the way. The right kind of hardware can also serve as lovely design elements, further improving the look of both your patio door and your exteriors.
When in the market for the best options, turn to Renewal by Andersen® of Western NY. We’ll help you find the perfect hardware for your sliding glass doors in Rochester, NY with these easy tips.
1. Choose a Good Locking System
Security is one of the first things you should consider when choosing patio door hardware. To enhance home security, Renewal by Andersen® of Western NY offers a 5-point locking system for our hinged French patio doors. Aside from increased level of protection, it also improves energy efficiency. This comes with an optional handle extension kit for clearance on interior shades and blinds.
A reach-out locking system maintains the security of our sliding glass patio doors. This pulls the door snugly into the jamb for a weather-tight seal and enhanced protection. An optional auxiliary foot lock also offers an extra measure of security when the door is in the locked position. Our patio doors have an exterior keyed lock—a six-pin key cylinder lock in varied styles and finishes that coordinate with the hardware.
2. Consider Your Hardware’s Look and Operation
You’ll need door hardware that is easily operable and can match your home’s existing décor. Renewal by Andersen® of Western NY offers a lovely selection of door latches and handles to help customize your hinged French doors in Pittsford, NY. These come in a variety of colors and finishes, including white, distressed bronze, satin nickel, and bright brass that deftly complements other design elements in your home. You won’t have to worry about your hardware sticking or fading either. Our hardware options allow for smooth operation and feature “living finishes,” where the patina grows lovelier over time.
