Sometimes, it’s the small details that can create the biggest impact. This is especially true for door hardware, which helps define the overall appearance of your entry or patio door. But how exactly do you choose the right one for your home?
Consider a door handle or latch. Knobs may be the familiar and traditional option for most exterior doors, but you’ll find that handles or latches are the more attractive option. A door latch for your hinged entry or patio door, for instance, is easier to operate than a knob, making it extremely practical when you’re living with a senior parent or family member with mobility issues. If you have a gliding patio door, the staple option is a door handle you can use to smoothly slide the unit to the side.
Pick a metallic hardware finish. The simple fact is that metallic finishes in hardware remains an exceptional choice. The door hardware offered by Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri comes in a wide selection of metallic finishes, including brass, chrome, bronze and nickel. These add an elegant and timeless look to your entry or patio door, making it an instant focal point. We also offer the same metallic finishes for our replacement windows through our Estate™ Hardware Collection.
Get a durable locking system. Aside from design and functionality, security should also be taken into account when choosing door hardware for your home. Renewal by Andersen of Southwest Missouri can help you with this. Our gliding patio doors come with a unique Andersen® reach-out locking system that pulls the door snugly into the jamb for increased weather resistance and security. You also have the choice to add an auxiliary foot lock. Our hinged door options, on the other hand, are available with a five-point locking system. Plus, all of our patio doors come with an exterior keyed lock to ensure they remain secure.
