Dayton Bifold Patio Doors

Modern Folding Patio Doors Create a Sleek Glass Wall

The diverse architecture of Dayton creates a tapestry of homes that define different neighborhoods, from the Victorian-era Oregon District to the redeveloped Webster Station. But the thread that connects the whole city is a trend for modernization.

Bifold patio doors are folding door systems that use a combination of panels to create a wide expanse of glass. They turn the focus of your home to the outdoors and then connect you directly to it with doors that fold away like an accordion.

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

Popular Local Trends & Styles


  • Mid-century modern home Mid-Century Modern Style

    Bifold patio doors are also popular in mid-century modern homes, which have a similar aesthetic to modern houses. They can light up an entire floor in homes with open floor plans and create a seamless connection to a spacious patio. With the addition of transom windows atop bifold doors, you can have floor-to-ceiling glass to create one of the defining features of mid-century modern design.

  • Modern Patio Doors Modern Patio Doors

    Homeowners in Dayton are looking for modern ideas to upgrade their living rooms and kitchens. Many opt for modern sliding glass doors to add space and natural light. Modern bifold patio doors give you even more, acting as a large, movable glass wall. With minimalist frames and modern patio door hardware, bifold patio doors maximize the amount of glass on your wall and flood your home with sunshine.

  • 6-Panel Patio Doors 6-Panel Bifold Doors

    You can design a bifold patio door with up to 10 glass panels, giving you many more door combinations to meet your spatial and aesthetic needs. A combination of six folding panels is popular because it’s bigger than traditional two- and four-panel patio door sizes but small enough to fit most homes. With six panels, you can choose the best folding operation to fit your space — three panels on each side with an opening in the middle or a single panel on the right or left with the remaining five folding to the opposite side.

  • wooden bifold patio doors Wooden Bifold Patio Doors

    Wood is the go-to material for modern and mid-century modern doors. These architectural styles favored the texture, comfort and welcoming feel provided by natural wood. Wood patio doors with a natural stain or a neutral paint are warming, inviting the focus to the large panes of glass and what lies beyond.

  •   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.
