Plantation Shutters: The Top Patio Door Window Treatment in Phoenix

September 17, 2020

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or trendy French doors, a trait they share is their large windows that provide you an excellent view of the outside. However, that much glass can come with some issues, such as energy loss, sun glare, and privacy. That's why you need an effective window cover to fully benefit from your windows.

Discover why home plantation shutters are the preferred patio door window treatments in Phoenix and how they can tackle these tricky issues!

The Most Functional Sliding Door Window Treatments In Phoenix

Sliding patio doors in Phoenix.

Sliding glass doors are a popular patio door for homeowners in Phoenix. True to their name, sliding patio doors usually include two or more full windows, one of which slides in front of the other. While they let in lots sunlight, they are also among the most frustrating doors to find treatments for. So much glass means a ton of energy loss and privacy worries -- not to mention the sun glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The most preferred sliding glass patio door window treatments in Phoenix are interior shutters. These interior shutters don’t mount to the door itself but instead slide in front of it. When sun glare turns into a problem, just slide the shutters in front of the door and tip the louvers to direct light -- or close them all of the way for full privacy. Most sliding door shutters are made from faux wood, such as our Polywood® shutters, so you even see energy-efficiency benefits.

Sliding door shutters offer longevity and functionality, thereby enabling continual use of the patio. The most popular style of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters pass behind each other on a track to open the doorway.

The Best French Door Window Covers For Phoenix

If you do not have a sliding glass door opening out onto your outdoor space, you might have another common door style: French doors. This kind of doorway has two doors that open apart from each other. The result may be a bit more elegant than a sliding glass or standard door, but they have the same issues. Substantial sheets of glass cause energy loss and sun glare.

It should be no surprise that faux wood interior shutters also are the best French door window treatments in Phoenix. They have the same beauty, durability, and energy-efficiency that sliding door shutters offer, except they can affix directly onto the French door frame. Consequently, your French door plantation shutter works much more like your typical window shutters, and you don’t have to push them aside to go out the doorway.
