Cleveland Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding Glass Doors Provide Convenient Access to the Outdoors

A sliding glass door is a great way to make the most of available light and space within a room. Sliding glass doors glide open within a track rather than swinging into your room, helping to conserve floor space while providing convenient access to your outdoor space, a popular option for suburban homes with large yards like those found in Glenwillow, Solon, and Hudson. This door style can also fit in just as well in a townhome in downtown Cleveland, providing access to a patio overlooking the bustle of the city.

Commonly known as: sliding patio door, sliding door, gliding door, glass door, exterior sliding doors

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Colonial style home Sliding Glass Doors for Different Home Styles

    Cleveland is an older city and home to many different home styles including bungalow, arts & crafts, Victorian, English/Tudor revival, and Prairie style. Although considered by some to be a more modern look, sliding glass doors can complement almost any home style. Look to wood finishes, grille patterns, and custom hardware to transform your sliding glass door into a feature of your home’s style. Sliding glass door styling options are available in wood, vinyl, and fiberglass, giving you more choices in colors, finishes, and hardware.

  • Victorian multifamily home in the Midwest Multiple Panels for Sliding Glass Doors

    A growing trend with sliding glass doors is to create a larger opening to the outdoors using multiple panels. Create a wide entrance and let more light in with a 3- or 4-panel sliding glass door. Additional panels can be fixed or operable. Pella has additional options for doors including multi-slide patio doors and bifold patio doors that can take your door to the next level. Homeowners seeking for a unique look may consider double sliding glass doors — doors with two operable gliding panels that open from a center point.

  • French-style wood sliding patio doors French Style Sliding Patio Doors

    Many homeowners prefer the convenience of a sliding glass door but also admire the elegance of a traditional French patio door. You can have the best of both worlds with wooden sliding doors that provide the look of traditional French patio doors, but with the added benefit of more usable space because they slide on a track instead of swinging open on hinges. If your windows have grids, add some grilles in the same pattern to match your sliding glass door with your windows for a cohesive look

  • Modern Sliding Glass Doors Add Privacy to a Sliding Glass Door

    Sliding glass door blinds can be added between the glass to provide the flexibility to adjust to your needs. Blinds can be opened, closed, or tilted to provide privacy and filter the incoming light. Between-the-glass blinds are a popular and convenient option for sliding glass doors because they do not get in the way when opening and closing your door and are also protected from dust, dirt, and debris — keeping maintenance to a minimum.

Cleveland Climate Recommendations

Northeast Ohio — including the Cleveland-Akron-Canton area — has a generally temperate climate with cold winters and mild summers. Cleveland stretches along the southern banks of Lake Erie, making the city prone to lake effect precipitation that varies from the city’s west and east sides. It’s proximity to the lake also makes it the windiest city in the state. The “Snow Belt” extends from Cleveland’s east side and suburbs, and extends up the shores of Lake Erie towards Buffalo. This area can easily see snow totals over 100 inches a year.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Window panes of glass with Advanced Low-E will help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and keeping the heat in.

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood with aluminum cladding, vinyl, and fiberglass are low maintenance and can help stand up to extreme weather.
