4 Signs Your Patio Doors are Due for Replacement

Patio doors add functionality to your home and serve as a layer of protection from the elements. That said, repeated use and exposure to harsh climate conditions can deteriorate them, render them inefficient, and cause them to become lackluster.

Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois, the expert in patio doors in Champaign, IL, discusses four signs that you may need a patio door replacement.

Physical Degradation

Visible signs of deterioration such as massive rotting or warping are clear indicators that you need to replace your patio doors. We offer patio doors that are made of wood and covered with vinyl, aluminum, or fiberglass. This protects them from the effects of the elements, lessening the need for costly maintenance or premature replacement. Additionally, they are available in a wide range of interior and exterior colors, finishes, and grille patterns for a visually pleasing home.


The seals on your patio doors deteriorate over time, making your home vulnerable to drafts, which can cause discomfort to your household. We take pride in our airtight and seamless patio door installation.

In fact, our door installation involves applying insulating foam in the gap between your old door’s frames and your new door.

We will also apply quality seals for lasting weather protection. Furthermore, we can complement this with a durable and weather-resistant storm door in Peoria, IL, for a cozier home.

Hard to Operate

Your door might start giving you a hard time when operating them. With our sliding patio doors, however, you do not have to worry about this from happening anytime soon. Their durable track rollers ensure ease of use. Furthermore, they come with sleek frames that are resistant to expansion and contraction.

Increasing Energy Bills

Worn-out doors become inefficient, which can lead to an increase in your energy bills. We offer multi-paneled French doors that come with insulating components. They feature frames coated with insulating materials, such as vinyl and fiberglass.

They also come with High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass that can reduce the amount of heat transfer in your home. Aside from this, we can provide you with energy-saving ProVia® entry doors in Bloomington, IL. They also have insulating components, such as polyurethane cores and low-e glass, which will contribute to your home’s comfort for lower energy costs.

"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!"
