Dayton Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding Doors Have Modern Style and Modern Conveniences

Dayton is home to several historic neighborhoods, featuring residential architectural styles that span centuries. But no matter the age or era of the home, modern is the trend.

Sliding glass doors connect your home to your patio, with two large glass panels that let you admire the outdoors. One panel is fixed while the other glides smoothly along a track, providing easy operation. Since you don’t have to account for an inswing or outswing, you can use the extra space for furniture, decor and more.

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

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Modern Screen Doors Modern Sliding Glass Doors

    Sliding patio doors give your home more space and natural light — two key characteristics of modern style. They bring modern design and functionality to traditional homes, like the refinished Victorians in the Huffman Historic District that blend classic character with modern convenience. Modern sliding doors are sleek and simple, with thin frames to maximize the glass and angular hardware to complement the clean lines.

  • Craftsman Style Sliding Door Craftsman Sliding Doors

    Contemporary Craftsman homes have a style that throws back to the originals seen in Grafton Hill and adds a modern touch. It’s a popular style found in new constructions as well as renovations of older Craftsman houses. Wood sliding glass doors with natural finishes have the Craftsman-style details to complement homes of any age.

  • Sliding Door Blinds Between-the-Glass Blinds

    Sliding glass doors with built-in blinds are favored for their modern convenience in the Dayton area. With blinds on the inside, enclosed between two panes of glass, you get the same privacy and shade control as regular patio door blinds, but they are out of the way and protected from dust and damage. Instead of a dangling cord, between-the-glass blinds are controlled by the touch of a button or your phone if you add Pella Insynctive technology.1

  • Sliding Glass Door Screen Retractable Screen Doors

    Sliding screen doors are a standard on sliding patio doors but Rolscreen® retractable screens2 are trending in the Dayton area. A retractable screen door offers the same protection from insects as a sliding patio screen door with more convenient functionality. When not in use, it rolls away into a self-storage system to maximize the light coming in from both glass panels and give you a clear look at the outside.

1Requires connection to a compatible home automation system and smart device.

2Warning: Use caution when children or pets are around open windows and doors. Screens are not designed to retain children or pets.

Recommended Customizations1

Minimalism is the core of modern style, keeping the focus on the glass and what lies beyond it. Grilles aren’t normally used for this reason, unless you want to capture Craftsman style with a simple, rectangular grille pattern. Modern sliding door hardware has clean lines and uses shiny, polished metals to complement the rest of the modern home decor. Find more customizations here.

Dayton Climate Recommendations

The weather in Dayton changes from hot and humid in the summer months to cold and dry in the wintertime. Precipitation is less of a concern as in northern Ohio but thunderstorms and blizzards are possible. Equipping your sliding patio doors with features to help withstand the elements can extend their performance.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Get year-round protection with Low-E insulating glass. The added protection helps provide balanced insulation from the cool winters and muggy summers in Dayton.

Glass Glazing

Glass Glazing

Glazing on your patio door glass panels can help seal out the weather — including those bitter cold temps — and help you maintain a comfortable home climate.

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

Wood with exterior aluminum cladding, vinyl, and fiberglass are low-maintenance materials that can stand up to all seasons.
