Shopping for Door Handles: Factors You Need to Consider

The door handle is one of the main components of patio doors that help bring out the elegance and beauty of the entire fixture. That said, when you shop for such hardware, you need to be sure that you are getting the right one. Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento, the premier source of replacement windows and patio doors in the local area, talks about the factors you need to consider.

The Appearance

The door handle may seem insignificant because of its size, but it creates a great impact on the overall home aesthetic. With so many choices out there in the market, you may be overwhelmed with the various styles and profiles. To be certain, you have to focus on what your home looks like both inside and out. When you have a traditional home, it makes sense to choose a vintage-looking brass handle.

The Handle

When selecting a door handle for your hinged French doors, you’ll also want to consider comfort and ease of use. In other words, you’d want it to feel good in your hand and easy to operate. With this in mind, take into account who’ll be using the doors. If you have an elderly family member with physical limitations, decide on a handle that won’t cause any difficulty in opening or closing the door.

The Cost

In purchasing new patio doors, remember that they may not always come with handles, latches and hinges. Most are sold separately, so you’ll want the hardware to fit not just the style of the doors, but also your budget. Fortunately, window companies such as ours are willing to assist you in finding the best solution for your needs.
