Plantation Shutters: The Best Patio Door Window Treatment in Detroit

September 17, 2020

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or stylish French doors, one thing they have in common is their big windows that give you a clear view out into your yard. However, that much glass may cause a few issues, such as energy loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need an effective window treatment to fully benefit from your windows.

Learn why plantation shutters are the ideal patio door window treatments in Detroit and how they can resolve these annoying issues!

The Most Functional Sliding Door Window Treatments For Detroit

Sliding patio doors in Detroit.

Sliding glass doors are a common patio door for many homeowners in Detroit. True to their name, sliding patio doors usually include two or more full-size windows, one of which slides past the other. While they let in plenty natural light, they are also some of the most problematic doors to cover. This amount of glass means a substantial amount of energy loss and privacy worries -- in addition to the glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The best sliding glass patio door window treatments in Detroit are interior shutters. These interior shutters don’t mount to the door itself but instead move in front of it. When sun glare is a problem, slide the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to direct sunlight -- or close them all of the way for total privacy. Usually, sliding door shutters are manufactured from faux wood, including our Polywood® shutters, so you also see energy-efficiency benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide longevity and functionality, thereby allowing frequent use of the patio. The most common configuration of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters slide behind the other on a track to open the doorway.

The Best French Door Window Covers For Detroit

If you lack a sliding glass door leading out onto your outdoor space, you might have another popular door type: French doors. This type of entryway features double doors that open away from each other. The effect might be a little grander than a sliding glass or regular door, but they share similar issues. Substantial panes of glass cause heat loss and sun glare.

It is no wonder that faux wood interior shutters also are the ultimate French door window treatments in Detroit. They have the same flair, strength, and energy-efficiency that sliding door shutters have, except they can affix right onto the French door frame. Consequently, your French door plantation shutter functions much more like your typical window shutters, and you don’t have to push them over to go out the door.
