The Most Functional Sliding Door Window Treatments In Southern California

Sliding patio doors in Southern California.

Sliding glass doors are a popular patio door among lots of homeowners in Southern California True to their name, sliding patio doors usually have two or more full-size windows, one of which slides in front of the other. While they let in plenty outside light, they are also one of the most frustrating doors to cover. A lot of glass means a lot of energy loss and privacy concerns -- in addition to the sun glare if your backyard lies to the east or west.

The best sliding glass patio door window treatments in Southern California are plantation shutters. These shutters don’t fasten to the door itself but instead move across the front of it. When sun glare turns into a problem, just slide the shutters in front of the door and tilt the louvers to direct sunlight -- or close them all of the way for total privacy. The majority of sliding door shutters are built from faux wood, like our Polywood® shutters, so you even get energy-saving benefits.

Sliding door shutters offer longevity and ease of use, thereby enabling frequent use of the patio. The most popular configuration of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters slide behind one another on a track to open the entryway.
