Plantation Shutters: The Top Patio Door Window Treatment in San Diego

September 17, 2020

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or beautiful French doors, one thing they have in common is their big window panes that provide you an excellent view outside. However, that much glass can cause a few issues, such as heat loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need a quality window treatment to enjoy the benefits of your windows.

Read about why interior plantation shutters are the preferred patio door window treatments in San Diego and how they can solve these annoying problems!

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 windows, one of which slides past the other. While they let in plenty outside light, they are also some 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 becomes a problem, just slide the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to direct light -- or close them completely for total privacy. The majority of sliding door shutters are built from faux wood, including our Polywood® shutters, so you even get energy-efficiency benefits.

Sliding door shutters offer longevity and easy operation, thereby allowing frequent use 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 Best French Door Window Treatments For San Diego

Patio Doors with Plantation Shutters in San Diego

If you do not have a sliding glass door leading out onto your outdoor space, you may have another common door option: French doors. This type of doorway has double doors that open out from each other. The result can be a tad bit grander than a sliding glass or regular door, but they share the same drawbacks. Large panes of glass cause energy loss and sun glare.

It is no wonder that faux wood interior shutters also prove to be the preferred French 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 functions a lot more like your typical window shutters, and you don’t need to push them to the side to walk through the door.
