3 Reasons To Have A Pre-Hung Patio Door Installed
If you're looking to have a patio door installed in your home, you're probably looking forward to having easy access to your backyard and to having a nice view to enjoy. Before you can start enjoying your new patio door, though, you'll have to choose the one that you want, and have it installed. You can choose between pre-hung and slab patio doors, both of which have their uses. Many who are in the industry see pre-hung patio doors as being superior, though, for these reasons.
1. Installation Probably Won't Cost as Much
Unless you know what you're doing, you might not want to install your own patio door. After all, you might find it to be a pretty challenging project, and you could even cause damage to the door or wall when trying to install it. You might also be lacking in both time and tools for this type of job.
If you're going to be hiring a pro to install your patio door, though, you might be worried about how much it's going to cost. Since pre-hung doors are usually easier to install, you probably will not have to pay as much for installation if you choose this type of patio door for your home. Plus, since there is less work to be done, your installer can get the project done faster. Then, you'll be able to put your patio door to use even sooner.
2. It'll Help with Keeping Cold or Warm Air Out
Another good thing about pre-hung patio doors is that they are better at keeping cold or warm air out. Because they are already sealed air-tight, you should not have to worry about your heating and air conditioning bills going up because of air leaking in around your new door. However, you may still want to take some steps to prevent things like your cooling bills going up, such as by having the glass tinted or covering them up with energy-efficient shades to help prevent the glass patio doors from heating up the inside of your home.
3. It'll Help Prevent Water Damage
Also, just as pre-hung patio doors are designed to be well-sealed so that you don't have to worry about air getting in and out of your home after installation, this also helps with preventing water damage. This will help you protect your home and the things that are inside of it when it rains.
