However, that much glass can come with a few issues, such as heat loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need a quality window treatment to fully benefit from your windows.

The Most Functional Sliding Door Window Treatments For San Diego

Sliding patio doors in San Diego.

Sliding glass doors are a popular patio door among homeowners in San Diego. As their name implies, sliding doors usually include two or more full-size windows, one of which slides past the other. While they allow in plenty outside light, they are also one of the most challenging doors to find treatments for. This amount of glass means a substantial amount of heat loss and privacy worries -- not to mention the glare if your backyard lies to the east or west.

The most effective sliding glass patio door window treatments in San Diego are interior shutters. These shutters don’t mount to the door itself but instead glide in front of it. When sun glare turns into a problem, just push the shutters in front of the door and tilt the louvers to direct light -- or close them entirely for optimum privacy. The majority of sliding door shutters are built from faux wood, including our Polywood® shutters, so you even receive energy-efficiency benefits.

Sliding door shutters offer longevity and ease of use, thereby permitting frequent activity in and out of the patio. The most popular design of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters pass behind the other on a track to open the entryway.

The Top French Door Window Treatments For San Diego

If you do not have a sliding glass door leading out onto your outdoor space, you may have another common door type: French doors. This style of doorway features double doors that open away from each other. The result can be a tad bit more impressive than a sliding glass or typical door, but they have identical drawbacks. Large panes of glass cause energy loss and sun glare.

It should be no surprise that faux wood interior shutters also prove to be the bestFrench door window treatments in San Diego. They have the same appeal, strength, and energy-efficiency that sliding door shutters provide, except they can fasten directly onto the French door frame. Consequently, your French door plantation shutter works a lot more like your typical window shutters, and you don’t need to push them to the side to walk through the door.
