Bringing the Outdoors in with Patio Doors

Patio doors are a great addition to any home. By visually bridging the space from the inside to the outside, they can add a feeling of extra space without needing significant changes. They also serve as a gateway for outdoor activities, from hosting parties to gardening.

Aside from the space, patio doors also help you cut back on energy costs as they let in natural light and ventilation. In addition, they provide added appeal by allowing you to enjoy the outside view. At Renewal by Andersen®, we provide a selection of patio doors in Champaign, IL and the surrounding areas, that will cater to your needs.

French Patio Doors

These doors are known for their elegant beauty and classic wood construction. Given their appearance, they are preferred by homeowners for the added privacy. Although they are sturdier, they offer the same security as sliding doors.

Similar to entry doors in Bloomington, IL, they are a hinged door to provide you with control on the amount of ventilation. Our Traditional French doors come with mortise-and-tenon joints and have a wide board stile and rail construction. You can also benefit from their multiple grille options. In addition, a urethane base finish protects their exterior wood door panels.

Sliding Patio Doors

Meanwhile, these doors glide on a track, so you won’t need extra room like with swinging doors. They also feature a big entrance for a more seamless transition to and from the outdoors. Sliding patio doors feature a large glass with a narrow frame that gives a broader view of the outside.

Our Contemporary gliding doors slide with ease on their Andersen dual ball-bearing rollers with self-contained leveling adjusters. Like our French doors, they also come with multiple grille options. Additionally, their reach-out lock system assures you of increased security and weathertightness.

For greater beauty without the extra maintenance, consider our Andersen Perma-Shield® gliding patio doors. Their rigid wood panels and frame are covered with a vinyl sheath. On the other hand, our Andersen Narroline® gliding patio doors have a stainable natural pine interior with mortise-and-tenon joints.

Renewal by Andersen of Central Illinois offers a variety of doors for your home’s needs. We use quality materials in making our doors, giving them excellent strength, insulation and low maintenance features. This provides both durability and energy efficiency for your home. To protect your doors from the weather, we also install storm doors in Peoria, IL.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
