Jacksonville Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding Glass Doors Invite Natural Light into Your Home

When you live in the Sunshine State, you might as well take full advantage of the abundant natural light that has earned that official nickname. Sliding glass doors are an essential component of your Florida patio, welcoming warm sunlight into your home and providing a seamless transition from the interior of your home to your outdoor living space.

Sliding glass doors offer easy-gliding operation for convenient access as you move in and out, especially if you’re carrying food, beverages, or other items. They are ideal for homes where space is a commodity, as the glass doors slide on a track rather than swing open.

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

  • Screen Doors Screen Doors1

    It’s no secret that Jacksonville is warm and sunny all year round. So when that Florida breeze decides to make an appearance and help keep temperatures cool, screen doors allow you to relax in the fresh air from inside the comfort of your own home — and without providing an open invitation for mosquitoes and other insects to invade your living space.

  • Victorian multifamily home in the Midwest Multi-Slide Patio Doors

    Perhaps one sliding patio door is not enough for you. Embrace the philosophy that you can never have too much of a good thing and capture the beauty of the outdoors with Pella’s multi-slide patio doors. You can incorporate as many as 10 operable panels, with design flexibility to suit your needs. If you’re going to update your patio doors, the more, the merrier, right?

  • French-style wood sliding patio doors Bungalow-Style Homes

    Jacksonville is host to a variety of architectural styles, but bungalow and craftsman style homes are among the most popular, dating as far back as the early 20th century. Sliding glass doors are ideal for bungalows, especially, because their functionality can help create the illusion of a larger living space in addition to providing more natural light and a pathway to the patio area.

  • Modern Sliding Glass Doors Between-The-Glass Blinds

    Sliding glass doors bring more natural light into your home, but between-the-glass blinds offer better control over the amount of sunshine you allow to illuminate your interior. Blinds require a minimal amount of maintenance to remove dust, dirt, and other debris, and can be conveniently opened, closed, or even tilted to accommodate your personal preference.

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

Jacksonville Climate Recommendations

Jacksonville is classified as having a humid subtropical climate, which means that the summers are hot and wet and the winters are mild and dry. It is recommended that you use energy-efficient glass to help protect against these conditions. Living near the coast, with heavy rainfall concentrated in the hottest months of the year, you’ll also want to consider materials and finishes that can maintain appearance and performance in the salty air.

Low-E Protection

Block Solar Heat

Keep your home comfortable — and help protect from the heat — with Low-E insulating glass that will also help keep energy costs down. SunDefense®3 Low-E Insulating Glass with Argon can block 94 percent of the sun’s heat and ultraviolet rays.

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

In coastal climates close to water, patio doors are vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Fiberglass and wood with exterior aluminum cladding can help resist wear from the sun and the ocean air.
