New Construction Patio Doors from One of San Diego’s Top-Rated Window Companies
A new patio door can be a great investment in your San Diego home! Not only can it improve your quality of life—allowing you to more easily enjoy your outdoor space—but adding one can also help to increase the value of your home. If you don’t currently have a convenient way to access your outdoor space, adding a patio door can be money well spent!
There are a lot of style options when it comes to patio doors for San Diego homes, but before you decide what style patio door you want, you need to determine if a new construction door or a replacement door is right for your situation. Read on to learn more about new construction patio doors and when they are the best choice for homeowners.
What Is a New Construction Patio Door?
A new construction patio door is one that is designed to be secured directly to the studs of your home. This requires that the studs be exposed at the time of installation, which typically only occurs during the home construction process. This is why they are called “new construction” doors, because they are largely designed for new construction—ground-up home builds or home additions.
Replacement doors, on the other hand, are designed to replace existing patio doors in homes, as they fit within the same space as the current door. Homeowners most often choose replacement doors when their old patio door becomes difficult to open and close, or when they want a patio door that is more energy efficient and soundproof than their current one.

We got five different estimates for installing new sliding glass doors in our home. Michal’s [from BM Windows] bid was consistent with the other bids, however what stood out to me was how much he knew about doors! This guy is a windows and doors guru. …Michal made sure everything turned out perfectly in the end. Michal was a pleasure to deal with and his workers did an excellent job right down to matching the existing stucco on the exterior walls. We are very pleased with the outcome and will use them again should we need more windows or doors installed. Thanks

When to Install a New Construction Door in Your San Diego Home
Based on the description above, you could reasonably conclude that you would only have a new construction patio door installed when building a new home or adding on to your current home. However, there are other common scenarios in which you would have new construction doors installed, and that is when you want to add a patio door in a space where there isn’t one currently or if you want to increase the size of an existing patio door.
Maybe you have a living room or a master bedroom that only has a window facing your backyard, but you’ve always wished there was a patio door there instead. You could have the window removed and have new framing installed in the wall to support a patio door. In this case, the patio door could be secured to the new framing that is built specifically for the new door.
Similarly, new construction patio doors could also be used if you want to install a set of patio doors that is larger than your current set of patio doors. At BM Windows, we sell patio doors with up to four glass panels. You could take out your standard two-panel sliding patio door, have the space widened with new framing, and install a huge set of patio doors that will showcase your backyard and provide you with great access to the outdoors. In areas like San Diego that are known for great weather, this type of indoor-outdoor living arrangement is ideal!
It should be noted that, in addition to needing to have new framing built, opening up a space to accommodate a new or larger set of patio doors may require some repair work to your exterior siding or stucco after the new doors are installed. However, many San Diego homeowners find that the end result—a great new set of patio doors—is well worth the effort and cost!
If you are opening up a new space for a patio door, we can help connect you with local contractors who can complete the framing portion of the project, as well as any needed repairs to your exterior walls.
