Types of Patio Doors

There are two major types of patio doors available in Peoria and Champaign: the French patio door and the sliding patio door. When picking a handle for your door, you need to know the type of patio door you are using since they use different handles for opening and closing.

Also, there are companies offering patio doors and patio door accessories to homeowners living in Central Illinois. We at Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois can provide you with top-of-the-line accessories for replacement windows and patio doors in Champaign, IL, and the nearby areas.

Types of Patio Door Handles

Patio door handles come in various shapes, colors, and sizes. When choosing a handle for your patio door, you need to consider the make and appearance of your patio door. If you are using a French patio door, then a silver-metallic handle that complements the look is a good choice. If you are using a sliding patio door, you might want to choose a handle that has the same color scheme of the patio door frame.

Those are the few tips you need to keep in mind when selecting a patio door handle. The good thing about these tips is that they are not intended just for patio doors, you can also follow these tips when choosing window handles and other door styles.

"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!"
