Steve Hill

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or stylish French doors, a trait they share is their large windows that offer you a clear view outside. However, all that glass may cause a few issues, such as energy loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need the right window treatment to fully benefit from your windows.

Read about why plantation shutters are the ideal patio door window treatments in Detroit and how they can tackle these annoying challenges!

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 windows, one of which slides past the other. While they let in plenty natural light, they are also one 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 most effective 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 an issue, slide the shutters in front of the door and tilt the louvers to control 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 durability and functionality, thereby permitting frequent activity in and out of the patio. The most common configuration 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 Detroit

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

It should be no surprise that faux wood interior shutters also are the ultimateFrench door window treatments in Detroit. They have the same appeal, durability, 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 common window shutters, and you don’t have to push them aside to get out the door.
