Interior Shutters: The Best Patio Door Window Treatment in Cleveland

September 17, 2020

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or trendy French doors, something they have in common is their substantial glass panes that provide you an excellent view of the outside. However, so much glass can come with issues, such as heat loss, sun glare, and privacy. That's why you need a quality window cover to enjoy the benefits of your windows.

Read about why plantation shutters are the ideal patio door window treatments in Cleveland and how they can mitigate these common issues!

The Best Sliding Door Window Treatments For Cleveland

Sliding patio doors in Cleveland.

Sliding glass doors are a common patio door among homeowners in Cleveland. True to their name, the doors usually consist of two or more large windows, one of which slides in front of the other. While they let in plenty sunlight, they are also some of the most frustrating doors to cover. So much glass means a ton of heat loss and privacy worries -- and then there’s the glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The most effective sliding glass patio door window covers in Cleveland are plantation shutters. These shutters don’t mount to the door itself but rather move across the front of it. When sun glare is an issue, simply slide the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to redirect light -- or shut them all of the way for optimum privacy. Most sliding door shutters are manufactured from a wood substitute, like our Polywood® shutters, so you also see energy-efficiency benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide durability and easy operation, thereby permitting frequent activity in and out of the patio. The most familiar style of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters move behind the other on a track to open the doorway.

The Best French Door Window Covers For Cleveland

Patio Doors with Plantation Shutters in Cleveland

If you lack a sliding glass door exiting out onto your outdoor space, you possibly have another common door type: French doors. This kind of entryway includes double doors that open apart from each other. The effect might be a bit more elegant than a sliding glass or regular door, but they share similar drawbacks. Large sheets of glass permit heat loss and sun glare.

It should come as no surprise that faux wood plantation shutters also are the ultimate French door window treatments in Cleveland. They have the same beauty, longevity, and energy-efficiency that sliding door shutters have, except they can affix directly onto the French door frame. Now, your French door plantation shutter operates a lot more like your typical window shutters, and you aren’t forced to push them aside to go out the door.
