Behind the install: A patio door replacement video
You never know what you might find while replacing a window or door.

How to talk to homeowners about patio door replacement
Homeowners are more likely to act on a broken or malfunctioning patio door simply because they’re inconvenienced every time they use the door. Still, it’s understandable if replacing a patio door isn't at the top of someone’s priority list. If your homeowner is on the fence, it can be helpful to explain some of the benefits of this home improvement.
Here are a few reasons a new A-Series patio door — the door featured in the video above — makes such a sound investment.
- Improved energy efficiency: The A-Series is our most energy-efficiency product line. Investing in an A-Series door can help keep a home more comfortable in every type of climate and in all seasons while also providing savings on utility bills.
- Updated aesthetics: With both contemporary and traditional panel styles available, A-Series can suit any style of home. And it's not just about looks — a new door can really pay off down the road. Realtors agree that Andersen products increase the value of a home by at least 15%.*
- Enhanced security: A new door can provide something every homeowner needs: peace of mind! A-Series patio doors come standard with a multi-point locking system — two hook bolts above a central bolt — enhancing both security and weathertightness, plus the option to add an auxiliary foot lock.
