Installing new patio doors in your Nashville home may sound simple. You just buy a set and install the doors, right? Just like a window replacement project, however, it’s essential to do some research and make the necessary preparations to make sure it’s done in the best possible way.
Renewal by Andersen® of Nashville shares the top mistakes you should avoid during your upcoming patio door installation:
Incorrect Patio Door Measurements
This is a common problem for cookie-cutter products. Although they seem like an appealing choice because they are cheaper than custom ones, there’s a good chance prehung patio doors won’t match the exact specifications of your home. Let’s say you managed to force your oversized doors to fit into your existing openings; now, they are more likely to sustain damage quickly due to friction caused by regular use.
Because of this potential risk, Renewal by Andersen of Nashville recommends investing in custom patio doors. By ensuring an accurate fit, you can have peace of mind knowing that your patio doors will function well once they’re installed.
Replacement patio doors need routine maintenance to last a long time, which is why when it comes to choosing the right one for your needs, you need to consider several factors other than their initial cost. Their overall cost includes repairs, refinishing, and other expenses that go with owning the patio doors throughout their lifespan.
Taking the DIY Route
Unless you have the proper skills and experience, DIY patio door installation can lead to serious issues down the road. For one, you might make mistakes that are difficult to fix. Worse, you might void your warranties. It’s always better to turn to experts to ensure flawless workmanship for your project.
