Plantation Shutters: The Ultimate Patio Door Window Treatment in Atlanta

September 17, 2020

Whether your patio doors are a sliding glass door or trendy French doors, something they have in common is their substantial window panes that provide you a clear view out into your yard. However, that much glass can come with a few issues, such as heat loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need the right window treatment to fully benefit from your windows.

Learn why interior plantation shutters are the ideal patio door window treatments in Atlanta and how they can solve these tricky problems!

The Best Sliding Door Window Treatments For Atlanta

Sliding patio doors in Atlanta.

Sliding glass doors are a common patio door among lots of homeowners in Atlanta. True to their name, sliding doors usually have two or more large windows, one of which slides in front of the other. While they invite in a lot of natural light, they are also among the most challenging doors to cover. This amount of glass means a lot of energy loss and privacy concerns -- and then there’s the sun glare if your backyard lies to the east or west.

The most effective sliding glass patio door window covers in Atlanta are plantation shutters. These shutters don’t mount to the door itself but rather slide in front of it. When sun glare is an issue, simply push the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to redirect light -- or shut them all of the way for optimum privacy. Usually, sliding door shutters are fabricated from faux wood, like our Polywood® shutters, so you even receive energy-saving benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide resilience and functionality, thereby permitting frequent activity in and out of the patio. The most popular 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 Atlanta

If you lack a sliding glass door exiting out to your patio, you might have another popular door option: French doors. This style of doorway has twin doors that open apart from each other. The result can be a bit more elegant than a sliding glass or regular door, but they have the same problems. Large pieces of glass cause energy loss and sun glare.

It should come as no surprise that wood substitute interior shutters also prove to be the best French door window treatments in Atlanta. They have the same style, strength, and energy-efficiency that sliding door shutters provide, except they can fasten right onto the French door frame. Now, your French door plantation shutter works much more like your common window shutters, and you aren’t forced to slide them aside to walk out the door.
