Although the patio door may not be seen as much as the front door, you still want to make sure it looks good and functions the right way. What shape is your patio door in? An outdated, beaten up door doesn’t look good—and, more importantly, it reduces your home’s:
- Energy efficiency
- Interior comfort

Do You Need Patio Door Replacement?
Is your patio door in good shape, or do you need to replace it?
You should talk to a professional to determine if you need a new door, but it can help to have some knowledge on the front end. There are some signs to be aware of that indicate a replacement may be necessary. You may need a new patio door if your door:
- Is hard to open or close
- Doesn’t operate the way it should (sticks, doesn’t latch properly, etc.)
- Doesn’t lock correctly
- Has moisture around the frame and/or by the bottom
- Is cracking, warping, rotting or rusting
- Has a lot of dents and dings
You may also need a new door if your energy bills have been increasing for seemingly no reason and are higher than they were at the same time last year. An old, drafty patio door can be a significant source of air leaks, so if your utility bills have increased, your old, inefficient door could be the reason for that.
