Buffalo Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding Glass Doors Provide Sunlight, Connection with Nature

Western New York has a relatively flat landscape and verdant natural surroundings, and many of the region’s homes are built to take advantage of that. Ranch and prairie-style homes, like many Don Hershey-designed homes in Rochester, have low profiles that help them blend into their surroundings. Sliding glass doors are common in contemporary and craftsman-style homes, but homeowners of all kinds enjoy the space-saving benefits sliding doors offer.

Made of two or more large glass panels, sliding glass doors provide ample natural light and uninterrupted vistas of your natural surroundings. Sliding glass doors that open to a deck, patio, or backyard help create an indoor-outdoor connection and also allow homeowners more room to entertain.

Commonly known as: sliding patio door, sliding door, exterior sliding door, gliding door, sliding deck door, gliding patio door

Popular Local Trends & Styles

Black Sliding Doors

No longer reserved just for contemporary homes, black window and door frames are a popular choice for homeowners of all kinds right now. A black sliding door frame has the effect of disappearing into the background, allowing the outdoors to take center stage. The crisp look of a black sliding door is an easy way to freshen up a more traditional home.

Contemporary Patio Doors

Black sliding doors are right at home in one of Western New York’s Mid-Century or ranch-style houses. Pella’s contemporary sliding doors come in a number of striking finishes, including black, and provide the clean lines and minimalist hardware associated with modern style. Choose polished chrome or matte black hardware for a high-contrast look.

Sliding Screen Doors*

Sliding screen doors are an excellent way to take advantage of the indoor-outdoor connection sliding doors provide. During mild weather, a sliding screen panel allows pleasant breezes indoors while keeping bugs at bay. Pella’s InView high-transparency screens are made from a finer screen fabric than conventional screens for increased airflow and visibility..

Sliding French Doors

French doors are a popular patio door choice that requires room for a pair of doors to swing open. If you like the look of French doors, but don’t have the space, consider wooden sliding doors that still have the same traditional look and feel. A traditional grille pattern on the glass can further impart the classic look of French doors.
*Warning: Use caution when children or pets are around open windows and doors. Screens are not designed to retain children or pets.
