Whether you’re renovating a Tudor home in Lakewood, building in a new development in Glenwillow or redesigning a Downtown condo, folding patio doors are an aesthetically-pleasing way to open up your home.

Folding patio doors use up to 10 glass panels to create wide expanse of glass that maximizes your sunlight. When the Cleveland weather’s right, you can open up the doors and neatly fold them away to immerse yourself in the outdoors and seamlessly entertain inside and out.

    From the front door to the back, modern style is popular in Greater Cleveland. Modern patio doors have clean lines, minimalist frames and undivided panels to emphasize the glass. Folding patio doors create a large, movable glass wall, a big trend in modern home design. The more panels you add to your bifold patio doors, the more glass and sunlight you get to maximize the modern design of your home.

    The Great Lakes have a great effect on the Cleveland climate. Downtown, Edgewater and other neighborhoods sit right on the southern edge of Lake Erie.

  • Black door Black Doors

    Painting the frames of your movable glass wall black is another major trend of modern house design. Black bifold doors create a bolder border on the sleek, minimalist frames, making the outdoors look like an art display. Black door frames are available on both the inside and outside, so you can modernize the look of your interior decor and still choose a color that complements your exterior paint scheme.

  • Bifold french doors Bifold French Doors

    Many homeowners like the modern design and functionality of folding patio doors but prefer a more traditional look. Bifold French doors match the aesthetic of the French doors found in Victorian and Tudor-style homes in West Akron and Cleveland’s historic neighborhoods. Natural, wooden doors with square grilles on the glass get the look. Stain the wooden bifold doors in Golden Oak, Early American or Provincial stains to bring out the natural beauty of the wood grains.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Wood Windows and Patio Doors – Wood interiors offer more design flexibility — windows and patio doors can be stained or painted to match your decor.  Explore the interior and exterior finish options available for Pella's wood products.

  •   What general maintenance is required for my Pella windows and patio doors?
    • Pella recommends you inspect your windows and patio doors at least annually as part of a home checkup. Maintenance can prolong the life of your Pella windows and doors and will help ensure maximum warranty coverage.

      As needed, clean, repaint or restain your windows and patio doors, and recaulk around them to help maintain optimal performance. Also, be sure to regularly check for leaks and improper drainage above or around vents and sprinkler systems that may subject your windows and patio doors to prolonged water exposure.

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

  •   How do I choose the right paint or stain for my wood windows and doors?
    • Stained Wood Interior Finish – Pella strongly recommends the use of a good-quality pre-stain wood conditioner before staining Pella windows and patio doors to reduce the possibility of a blotchy-looking, uneven finish. Ask your paint or finishing professional to recommend a pre-stain wood conditioner, a stain and a finishing coat that are compatible.

      Painted Wood Interior Finish – The most important consideration to make when choosing your paint is good blocking resistance — the ability of a paint to resist sticking. Failure to use a high-quality paint with good blocking resistance may result in a window or door that sticks shut, even after the paint has dried. Ask your qualified paint professional to recommend a paint with good blocking resistance. Don't simply rely on a paint's price or brand name in making your selection. Expensive paint may not necessarily offer good blocking resistance. Also, ask your paint professional to recommend a wood primer and paint that are compatible and whether sanding is required between coats of paint.

      Explore the factory pre-finish options available for Pella's wood products.

  •   Where can I get paint or stain to match the interior and exterior of my Pella products?
    • Paints and stains for Pella products are available in quarts and gallons via special order through Lowe's stores or your local Pella Window and Door Showroom. You will need to provide the color of the paint or stain that you need to place an order.

      Or you may take the color or stain desired along with the substrate you are trying to match to your local Sherwin-Williams® or home improvement store and have them custom match the color.

      If you don't have a Pella paint chip or just need a small bottle of touch up paint or stain for dings and scratches, submit a request to Pella Corporation's customer support team or call (877) 473-5527 for further assistance.

      Be sure to consult with your local paint or finish store representative or professional to help address your specific finishing needs and review the Finishing section of your Pella Owner's Manual for details about how to properly finish your 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.
