Kansas Patio Doors

Patio Doors Expand and Enhance Your Entertaining Space

The patio has become a space as important as any room in the home. While you can’t comfortably use it year-round in the Kansas climate, your patio provides an area for family dining, entertaining and relaxing for three of the four seasons.

Patio doors connect your indoor and outdoor living areas. There are a number of unique styles to fit your home and your needs. Keep it simple with a sliding patio door or hinged French patio door. Or create a wider opening and greater visual impact with multi-slide patio doors or bifold patio doors.

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • double french doors French Patio Doors

    Kansans are pragmatic and rooted in tradition. Exterior French doors bring classic functionality and traditional style. They accentuate the historic architecture of Victorian homes common in Topeka and complement newer styles like Craftsman too. French patio doors can swing in or out, come as a single door or double doors, and be fixed or operable, giving you the flexibility to choose the functionality that best fits your space.

  • traditional sliding patio doors Double Patio Doors

    Modern homes emphasize the natural beauty of the outdoors over the decor and ornamentation of the interior. Double sliding patio doors and full-glass double French doors make your back entrance look like a wall of glass. Multi-slide patio doors use four or more glass panels to create a seamless connection between your home and your patio.

  • natural wood sliding glass doors Sliding Glass Doors

    Sliding patio doors are space savers. They smoothly glide along a track, preserving precious square footage out on your patio and inside your home. Exterior sliding doors give you a large wall of glass, bringing in the natural light and beauty of the environment. They’re a great solution for the more modern and contemporary homes popping up around Wichita.

  • Wooden Patio Doors Wood Patio Doors

    No matter how the patio door functions — sliding, swinging or folding — Kansans prefer the traditional look of wood. Many homeowners mix and match their styles, pairing the classic beauty of French doors with the ease of use of sliding doors. These French-style sliding glass doors save space in older, smaller homes while upping their historic charm.

Kansas Climate Recommendations

Kansas is middle America, so its weather provides a mix of everything. Look for more energy-efficient options to protect your home from the fluctuating temps and high precipitation.  

low e protection

Low-E Protection

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

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

The Kansas climate brings everything from bitter cold to dangerous storms. Wood with aluminum cladding, vinyl and fiberglass are low maintenance and can help stand up to extreme weather.

Energy Efficiency

For better efficiency and lower heating and cooling costs in the Kansas climate, choose doors with SHGC and U-values of 0.3 or lower. The northernmost reaches of the state would benefit from a higher SHGC due to the colder temps.

  •   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.


      • 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.

  •   How do I clean and restore shine to the handles and hardware on my windows and doors?
    • A soft cloth and mild cleaner may be used on most Pella hardware finishes. 

      Living finish Oil-Rubbed Bronze hardware will develop its own unique patina with use, care and handling. Simply wipe the hardware with a soft cloth so as not to damage the finish. The changing of color on the hardware is not a warranty issue.

      The solid brass hardware used on some previous vintages of Pella wood hinged (French) patio doors has a clear protective coating to prevent tarnishing. Download instructions to care for solid brass hardware.

      For additional information about how to properly care for your Pella windows and doors, refer to the Cleaning section of the Pella Window and Patio Door Owner's Manual.

  •   How do I lock and unlock my French patio door with a Multipoint Locking System?
    • Turn the thumbturn lock inside or use the key outside to unlock the door.  To open the door, grasp the handle and push down, then operate the door.

      To engage the multipoint lock, close the door and lift up the handle. To lock the door so that it requires a key to unlock it from the outside, either turn the keylock on the exterior or turn the thumbturn lock on the inside with the handle raised. Test the door to make sure it is locked.

      Watch how to lock and unlock your French patio door with Multipoint Locking System.

  •   How do I lock and unlock my French patio door with a Flushbolt Locking System?
    • If your French patio door has two panels, and one panel has a nonoperable handle, the main panel locks and unlocks like the Multipoint Locking System:

      • Turn the thumbturn lock inside or use the key outside to unlock the door.  To open the door, grasp the handle and push down, then operate the door.
      • To engage the multipoint lock, close the door and lift up the handle. 
      • To lock the door so that it requires a key to unlock it from the outside, either turn the keylock on the exterior or turn the thumbturn lock on the inside with the handle raised. Test the door to make sure it is locked.

      The stationary panel locks and unlocks with flushbolts at the top and bottom of the panel. To disengage these flushbolts, find the black levers located on the strike plate and push the levers in, then up or down. There are small icons on the strike plate to denote the locked or unlocked position.

  •   How do I lock and unlock my sliding patio door?
    • The thumbturn lock is located behind or above the door handle. To lock the door, turn the thumbturn lock to a vertical locked position. The locking system will engage when the door is closed. To unlock the door, turn the thumbturn lock in the opposite direction to a horizontal position.

      If your sliding patio door is equipped with a footbolt lock, it has two positions. One allows the door to be latched when it's about 3 inches open; the other provides extra security when the door is fully closed.

      To engage the lock, move the lock handle toward the side of the door. To disengage the lock, move the lock handle toward the center of the door.

      Review the Sliding Patio Door Screen section of the Pella Window and Patio Door Owner's Manual for additional details about the operation and care of your sliding patio door. If you continue to have difficulty, request a service visit consultation from your local showroom or call (800) 242-1008 to find a Pella service location nearest you.
