Columbus Sliding Glass Doors

Natural Light Abounds With Space-Saving Sliding Glass Doors

A sliding glass door is a great way to make the most of available light and space within a room. The benefit of sliding glass doors is that they really open up a space — gliding open within a track rather than swinging into your room. This allows easy entrance and exit between your indoor and outdoor spaces, connecting for better traffic flow and enhanced entertaining possibilities.

Sliding glass doors are a popular option for suburban homes with large yards like those found in places like Beechwood Trails or Harrison West but also useful in homes with limited square footage like those found in downtown Columbus.

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

  • Charming Sliding Glass Doors Match the look of your home Charming Sliding Glass Doors Match the Look of Your Home Style

    Columbus, Ohio, is made up of many distinct neighborhoods, each featuring unique architectural elements. Whether you live in the busier Short North or quieter Clintonville, you’ll find a diverse range of varied styles of housing. Some neighborhoods, like Eastmoor, feature historic old stone house styles. The Harrison West neighborhood features Victorian and Edwardian-style homes. These older style homes benefit from sliding glass door additions like grilles or grid-patterns which help the glass doors take on the look of French doors while retaining the conveniences of sliding doors.

  • mutiple sizes for sliding glass doors Multiple Sizes for Sliding Glass Doors

    Sliding glass doors are popular because they create a large opening to the outdoors. You have the option to increase the size of your entrance to the outdoors using multiple panels. Sliding glass doors are available in 3- or 4-panel sizes. 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.

  • French-style wood sliding patio doors Sliding Glass Door Screens

    Columbus summers can be just perfect weather-wise. Warm sunny days give way to cool summer breezes at night. Homeowners who wish to capture this fresh air can do so easily with a screen1 door, and the sliding glass door screen helps to keep insects like house flies or mosquitoes outside. Depending on the product series, Pella sliding patio doors are available with three screen types: sliding, self-closing, or retractable.

  • Between the glass blinds Add Blinds Between-the-Glass on Your Sliding Door

    Sliding glass doors let in a large amount of natural light. This can considerably improve your home’s lighting and aesthetic, but some homeowners require the ability to adjust this light for activities like watching television or reading. Consider adding sliding glass door blinds between the panes of glass to provide the flexibility to adjust and filter the light to your needs. Blinds can be opened, closed, or tilted to provide privacy and filter the incoming light. This option adds additional convenience for sliding glass doors because the blinds do not get in the way when opening and closing your door and they are also protected from dust, dirt, and debris — keeping maintenance to a minimum.

1Warning: Use caution when children or pets are around open windows and doors. Screens are not designed to retain children or pets.

Columbus Climate Recommendations

Central Ohio, including the Columbus area, is often referred to as the Ohio River Valley. This valley sees a variety of weather and seasonal variability over the course of the year including severe storms in the summer and blizzards in the winter. Sliding glass doors offer convenience in the winter because they do not track snow across your flooring when opened.

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.
