There are many options to consider when choosing replacement patio doors for your San Diego home. There are different patio door styles, frame colors, hardware choices, and other features from which to choose, with options that will complement any type of home. BM Windows can help you decide what is the best solution for your home with a free in-home consultation.
One decision you will have to make when it comes to choosing replacement sliding patio doors is on the thickness of the frame. A regular sliding patio door frame is about 2.5” wide, but our preferred manufacturer, Anlin Window Systems, also offers a French-style door, with 4.5” wide rails, that replicates the look of a French hinged door, without the cost of an actual French hinged door.
Anlin’s patio doors come in a variety of colors. The basic frame colors are tan and white, but they offer twelve additional patio door colors to complement your San Diego home. See Anlin’s website for a list of their patio door color options. There are multiple options for patio door hardware as well, including the standard white, polished brass, satin nickel and bronze.
When it comes to security, Anlin’s sliding patio doors offer extra protection with features like a multi-point locking system and a deadbolt. Anlin’s patio doors are also engineered in such a way that the glass-to-frame seal can only be penetrated from the interior of the home.
Another feature of Anlin’s patio doors is their heavy duty extruded screen doors, which have metal reinforced corners. Their screen doors also use a “micro” screen mesh, providing better visibility than standard screen doors, as well as increased airflow and insect protection.
Your BM Windows consultant can help you sort through all of the options available when it comes to replacement sliding patio doors. (Like, did you know that there are special “coastal packages” available for homes located near the ocean that will minimize the impact of salt and sand on your patio door hardware?) And as always, our consultants will help you through the entire process and give you a fair price without high pressure sales tactics. It’s in our guarantee!
