  • What NOT To Do When Replacing a Patio Door

Buying or replacing patio doors is a significant investment and, as such, it is important that everything goes according to plan. A simple door installation need not be a stressful experience. A new door can revitalize the entire look of any room and make it more energy-efficient. In today’s post custom entry door specialists PJ Sullivan Exteriors shares what not to do when replacing patio doors.

 Replacing a Patio Door

1. Not Considering Natural Light

Letting in natural light is a great way to enhance the ambiance of any room and can help your indoor space blend more seamlessly with the outside but, unfortunately, most homeowners do not take this into consideration when selecting a patio door. When shopping for a patio door, make sure to select the one that fits your needs but also the one that lets in the most light.

2. Not Taking Advantage of a Free Consultation

Most door replacement companies offer a no-obligation consultation where they send an expert to your home to discuss the project at no cost. Make sure you take advantage of this service during the early planning stages to make sure you are making the most well-informed decisions.

3. Not Hiring a Specialist

While going the do-it-yourself route can be a great way to keep costs down, if your budget permits, it is still best to hire a specialist to do the job. Installing a door, especially the more complicated models, can be quite difficult and require a high level of skill. Don’t risk making mistakes that will cost you more money in the long run and get a pro to get the job done right for you the first time.

Ensure the success of your door installation project by relying on the pros. Whether you are in need of a window replacement company or are looking to have a luxury front door custom-built, we’ve got you covered.

Since then, he has not only replaced all the siding and roofing on my house, but completely renovated the entire interior, a multiyear job that included moving many walls, installing new tiles for the entire first floor, completely renovating the kitchen, and building a new...

We were so happy with the roofing, siding and pertego job PJ Sullivan did for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better company to do this for us. Pete was very attentive and visited our home at least 3 times a week and that was important for us.
