Correcting Patio Door Myths and Misconceptions

Replacing your old patio door with our product can benefit you in a number of ways. Our replacement patio door can improve your home’s appearance, make your home more energy-efficient, protect your interior from bad weather, and make your home more secure. Unfortunately, there are a number of myths centering around replacement patio doors. A Cut Above Exteriors, the door installation expert, sets the record straight:

  Patio Door

  • Patio Doors Waste Energy – Some people believe that patio doors are not energy-efficient because of their large glass panes. This is not true. The patio doors we install from the Andersen® Corporation and Simonton® Windows and Doors are all ENERGY STAR®-rated. This means that according to third-party studies, they have been shown to significantly improve a home’s energy efficiency.

  • Patio Doors Aren’t Safe – This is also untrue. Modern glass manufacturing technology makes sure that glass door breakage is no longer a safety issue. Our high-quality Simonton and Andersen patio doors feature strong and durable glass that can withstand any kind of weather. In addition, our patio doors are highly secure. They feature modern locking technology that can completely seal the door.

  • Patio Doors Limit Your Privacy – Patio doors feature large glass panes that let in plenty of natural light and highlight great views. Unfortunately, some people think that this leads to a privacy issue. This is not the case because there is a wide range of privacy films, blinds, shades, and other window treatments that can ensure total privacy. Our patio doors also come with opaque decorative glass options to shield your interior from view.
