We recently did our windows and now noticed our patio door which seemed to be ok at the time is now very cold. I would imagine that the old windows desensitized the patio door draft and now the new windows excentuate the patio door draft?
Any recommendations for a strong patio door ?

Most window manufacturers also make sliding patio doors, so those recommendations generally go hand in hand. The Okna Elegante has the best u-value and air leakage numbers on the market to my knowledge. The Sunrise is a nice unit despite the mechanically fastened frame, and the new Softlite product has good numbers as well.
The Okna and Softlite both have a fully welded frame which I prefer for long term air-tight operation.
