Retrofit patio doors for San Diego homes that are beautiful and energy efficient!
San Diegans love their patio doors—and it’s no wonder! In an area that’s considered to have some of the best weather in the world, it just makes sense that residents would want their homes to have convenient access to the outdoors.
However, if you have an old patio door that no longer functions as it should, it can be more of a hassle than a convenience. It may not slide open and closed smoothly or it might not be as energy efficient as you prefer—letting in heat in the summer and cold in the winter.
The good news is that an existing patio door can be easily replaced with a new and more energy-efficient option!
Having a retrofit patio door installed is one of the best upgrades you can make to your home. Not only will it make your backyard, patio, or deck more accessible, but it will also likely improve your home’s value and help insulate your home from the elements and from outside noise. At BM Windows, we have affordable replacement patio door options, as well as higher-end options. We can help you find the replacement patio door that best fits your needs and your budget.
What Are Retrofit Patio Doors?
Retrofit patio doors, or replacement doors, are patio doors that are designed to fit within the space currently occupied by a set of patio doors. Many homes in San Diego already have patio doors leading to the outdoors, but they may be difficult to open and close or they may let in a lot of unwanted heat and cold, as well as outside noise. Your old, inefficient patio door can be replaced by a new one that glides smoothly and helps to better insulate your home.
Replacement patio doors are made to order so they fit perfectly within the existing opening. On the day of installation, your old door is carefully removed and the new one is installed within the existing frame. The surrounding walls are not damaged in the process, so no expensive repair work needs to be done after the new door is installed. At the end of the process, you are left with a beautiful new patio door that operates exactly as it should!
What a great company! After calling several other window companies BM windows was the best. No pushy sales agents here. Just honest working people, they gave an in-person consultation and were upfront with pricing and wait times. They were on time with installation and I couldn’t be more happy. Carlos and Mario did a superb job! Thank you to your team! We will recommend to all of our friends and family.

What If I Want to Add a Patio Door Where There Isn’t Currently One—Or Increase the Size of My Patio Door?
If you don’t currently have a patio door in your home or if you want to install one that is bigger than the patio door that you already have, you’ll need to have a new construction patio door installed. The wall will need to be opened up, and new framing will need to be constructed, to which your new patio door will be secured. This would obviously be a more expensive option than simply replacing an existing patio door, but many San Diego homeowners find the extra expense to be worth it when the process ends with their home having a brand new or larger set of patio doors to enjoy!

Patio Doors That Are Energy Efficient
Not all replacement patio doors are created equal! Some are definitely higher quality and more energy efficient. At BM Windows, we only sell top-quality patio doors that will help you save money on your monthly energy bills. Our patio doors come with insulating frames made from high-quality vinyl, dual panes of glass with special gas in between the two panes, as well as other features that help keep your home insulated from the heat and cold outside. They are consistently rated among the most energy-efficient patio doors on the market by independent testing organizations, including the federal government’s Energy Star program.
Styles of Patio Doors from BM Windows
At BM Windows, we sell some of the most popular styles of replacement patio doors for San Diego homes. We offer the ever-popular sliding glass doors with two, three, or four panels, and we also sell French patio doors, which come in swinging and sliding options.
You can’t go wrong with sliding patio doors, but if you want to upgrade to a more refined look, you may want to consider French doors. French doors have a wider frame area around the glass. French hinged doors swing outward, giving you a wide opening to the outdoors, which many of our customers love.
However, other homeowners prefer the larger glass area offered by traditional sliding patio doors—especially those that like to enjoy the view to the outdoors. If you’re not sure what type of patio doors will work best in your particular home, a team member from BM Windows can help you choose!
Replacement Patio Doors with In-Glass Pet Doors
Homeowners with furry friends may want to consider adding an in-glass pet door to their new patio doors. This optional feature allows your pets to come and go freely and releases you from the duty of having to open the door to let them out every time they need to relieve themselves.
An in-glass pet door can be included in the door panel of your choice. They are made from high-quality materials and built to last—even with consistent use by multiple pets. You can read more about the Freedom+ In-Glass Pet Doors here.
