Austin Bifold Accordion Doors

Bifold Accordion Doors Connect Your Home to the Outdoors

Austin has a reputation for a rich culture, and the collection of architectural styles spread out across the city is representative of that. Classic and traditional homes like the Queen Anne style homes of Hyde Park are complemented by more modern architecture — like Craftsman, mid-century modern, and modern farmhouse — that befit the newest generation of residents.

Bifold patio doors fit these modern trends by creating a large glass wall on the back of the home. Two or more glass door panels are hinged together and open up like an accordion to turn a glass wall into a wide entrance that seamlessly connects your indoor and outdoor entertaining areas.

Commonly known as: bifold patio doors, exterior bifold doors, folding patio doors, concertina doors, accordion patio doors

Austin Climate Recommendations


Technically classified as a humid subtropical climate, Austin occupies a unique area of Texas between the dry deserts of the Southwest and the more humid region of the Southeast. As a result, the area’s climate shares characteristics of both distinct regions. The summers are long and hot and the winters are short and mild. Anything in between is generally warm. Austin is prone to severe weather throughout the year, although most of it is concentrated in the spring. Severe weather can bring damaging winds, heavy rain, and even tornadoes.

  •   Where can I get paint or stain to match the interior and exterior of my Pella products?

  •   How do I clean my Pella windows and patio doors? What can I use to clean them?
    • Clean the interior and exterior frame surfaces with warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly. Stubborn stains and deposits may be removed with mineral spirits. Or Pine-Sol® can be applied with a clean, dry cloth or towel. Do not use abrasives. Do not scrape or use tools that might damage the surface. Should you need it, touch-up paint is available at the Pella Window and Door Showroom nearest you.

      Clean the window sill using the brush attachment on a vacuum and vacuum off any debris.

      It is normal for water to accumulate in the sill and track. On products with weep holes, the water is intended to drain to the outside via the drainage or "weep" holes.

      • To clean the weep (drainage) system, check to make sure that the weep holes are clear of obstruction (dirt, sand, or building materials).
      • To clean the weep holes, use a small, soft brush to clear the opening. Weep holes may be located both inside and outside the window in the bottom of the frame. If the window is "stacked," there may be weep holes between the units.

      WARNINGS:

      • Do not use abrasive or caustic solvents as they may damage your windows or patio doors.
      • Do not scrape or use tools that might damage the surface. 
      • Do not power-wash.

      Review the Cleaning section of the Pella Window and Patio Door Owner's Manual for additional details about how to properly clean your Pella windows and patio doors.
