5 Types of Patio Doors for Your Home

Patio doors make a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces, and brighten rooms that might otherwise feel cramped or dark. They come in various styles and materials to suit any home’s design aesthetic.

Sliding patio doors are less bulky than hinged patio doors and fit into tighter openings. Their large glass area and narrow frames capture views beautifully and improve energy efficiency.

Sliding glass doors

Easily connect your home to the outside world with sliding glass doors. They brighten living spaces by bringing natural light inside and visually expand them. They also complement many different architectural styles.

Unlike traditional hinged patio doors, sliding glass doors are designed to slide horizontally rather than vertically. They can fit into tighter spaces than other door types and are easy to clean.

Energy efficiency is another benefit of sliding glass doors. They come with a variety of glass options, including frosted, tinted, or clear. They also feature a mechanical frame, vinyl wrapped eco-friendly composite core, and compression bulb seal with a finseal weather strip at the meeting rail.

Fiberglass windows

Our windows are crafted with Ultrex pultruded fiberglass exteriors paired with rich wood or energy-efficient glass to create long lasting, virtually maintenance free products that resist the dents and dings of everyday use. They also provide thermal protection for your Smithtown home all year round by blocking incoming air and limiting the transfer of heat.

Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex material provides the best of both worlds – wood’s strength and vinyl’s low maintenance. Vibrant colors that won’t fade, narrow frames that maximize the view and shape-retaining performance. Choose from a wide variety of glass options to meet your unique aesthetic and design requirements.

French doors

Whether they’re opening onto a backyard patio or creating a visual connection between two rooms, French doors make a bold statement and offer great ventilation. They feature a sense of proportion with equally divided lite panes, allowing you to customize them with clear glass or patterned and stained glass.

Our Smooth-Star hinged patio door collection is the perfect combination of beauty and strength. Made from rugged compression molded fiberglass, it resists the dents and dings that come with day-to-day use and features a design-rich profile.

Enhance your home’s energy efficiency with our hinged doors that meet the stringent requirements of Energy Star certification. Our doors provide a superior barrier against the elements and help you lower your energy bills.

Bi-fold doors

Bi-fold doors open up a space to the outdoors and require less floor area than their swing counterparts. They are available in a wide range of custom sizes and styles. They can be covered with decorative cladding or other materials such as stucco, total glass, rock face, cedar, and vinyl siding.

They are also ideal in greenhouses that require environmental adjustments to produce healthy plants. Motorized upward bi-fold doors open up the greenhouse to the fresh outdoor air for ventilation and pollination.

They are also a great choice for a patio bar that wants to offer a unique dining experience. These door systems are novel, unique, and a fun way to welcome customers in a cool environment.

Lift and slide doors

If you enjoy entertaining in your outdoor oasis, a set of sliding French doors will make for a smooth transition between indoors and out. These doors are available in two-, three-, and four-panel configurations up to 16 feet wide.

Their narrow frames will let you gaze at your garden and backyard while you’re doing other things in the house or keeping an eye on kids playing outdoors. They can also boost ventilation in your home, reducing humidity and regulating indoor temperatures while eliminating stale air. Our Energy-Efficient Sliders are made with a vinyl wrapped eco-friendly composite core and steel reinforced mechanical sash for added strength and insulation.

Accordion doors

Accordion doors are an option for homeowners who want to open up their homes and create a spacious, unbroken view. These glass doors fold accordion-style, creating a distinctive, quirky design that will add character and charm to any home. They can be used as closet doors, patio doors, or room dividers. They also make for an ideal commercial door solution because they allow fresh air to flow in and block unwanted sunlight. For additional security, these doors can be fitted with a keypad entry system, eliminating the need for keys.

Telescoping doors

A telescoping door system allows more natural light into your home and doesn’t interfere with furniture or walls. These doors come in two-, three-, or four-panel configurations up to 16 feet wide. They are more compact than hinged doors, making them a great option for tight spaces.

Combining ventilation with accessibility, tilt and slide patio doors are a unique solution for Smithtown homes. Made of rugged, compression-molded fiberglass, they offer the look of painted wood without the upkeep.

Energy-efficient patio doors provide a thermal barrier to reduce heating and cooling costs and keep your home comfortable all year round. They feature insulated glass and a warm-edge spacer system.
