Deflect the looks of passersby with a sturdy window treatment that doubles as a piece of art. There’s finally an alternative to vertical blinds in Cleveland households. We’re talking about sliding shutters for the patio door in your home! With a track for smooth sliding, patio door shutter panels cover the entire length of the patio door. The panels can be built from long lasting Polywood® and Ovation® wood. You pick the louver size, the paint, the stain, and the frame style. And our specialists custom build the patio door shutter and fit it to your door’s specifications. Features Of Patio Door Shutters In Cleveland, Ohio Plantation shutters are an attractive window covering for patio doors. Polywood creates a modern look, while Ovation brings the warmth of wood. The custom fit louvers highlight the architecture of the window without sacrificing the view outside. And you can control the amount of light and how much of the view that comes in through the patio door glass pane. This is accomplished by adjusting the shutter louvers with either a front-mounted tilt rod or a hidden one. The louvers also allow you privacy and glare reduction. That’s particularly important when a room contains a TV or computer screen. And with Polywood shutters, shifting those louvers closed means maximum savings on power bills. That is what makes plantation shutters stand out from other window treatments when it comes to covering patio doors - regardless of the style of patio door you choose. One of the key options to think about is choosing between bypass or bifold style patio door shutters. Bypass Style Patio Door Shutters Bypass style shutters are a great fit for all patio doors. Two sets of shutters slide back and forth on a track mounted above the shutters. Moving one set past the other, you get full view of the outdoors and have access to the patio door itself. Bifold Style Patio Door Shutters Bifold style shutters are perfect if there’s room in front of the patio doors where you can fold the panels out. Two sets of shutters glide on a top-mounted track. And when they’re folded out, you get maximum access to your patio door and your view.
