Long Island Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding Patio Doors offer Function and Style

As the longest and largest contiguous island in the United States, Long Island is home to more than 7.5 million people, and the architectural styles on the island are as diverse as the people who live there. From the rowhouses of Brooklyn to the shingle-style homes of Montauk, Long Island has a wide range of home styles, all of which can benefit from a sliding glass door. By the nature of its design—a panel that glides open along a track—sliding glass doors save space because they stay within the door frame when they open. This quality can be a huge benefit in a home with a small or narrow footprint like the row houses common in Kings and Queens counties. As you head east along the island, sliding glass doors continue to be beneficial, letting in ocean breezes and fresh air.

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Colonial style home Custom Sizes

    With such a wide range of home styles, it’s no surprise that custom sliding door sizes are important to Long Islanders. Depending on your needs and the size of your home,  2-, 3-, or 4-panel options are available. Choose which panels you want to be fixed and which you’d like to be operable. Whether you’re looking for a small or large sliding door, Pella windows are built-to-order in standard and custom sizes, so you can find the option that best suits you and your home.

  • Sliding Screen Door Sliding Screens1

    Sliding doors are often connected to a balcony, deck, or back yard, and sliding screens for patio doors are a popular way to maintain an indoor-outdoor connection during mild months. Screen doors can used to help cool down your home during hot summer days whether in the city or at the beach. With Pella’s InView screens, made from a finer material than most screens, you can enjoy clearer views and increased airflow.

  • Farmhouse-style sliding patio doors Farmhouse-Style

    Farmhouse-style homes are more common on Long Island in Nassau and Suffolk counties. In a rustic farmhouse, it’s important to select sliding glass doors that coordinate with the rest of your home. Pella offers different grille and hardware choices, and both real wood stains and wood-look finishes, so you can create the perfect combination that meets your desired farmhouse look.

  • Modern Sliding Glass Doors Modern Sliding Door

    Contemporary homes are also more common in Long Island’s Nassau and Suffolk counties. Clean lines and crisp, contrasting colors are hallmarks of contemporary style. In this style of home, black is a popular finish for sliding glass doors. Minimalist hardware and square grille profiles are additional options for achieving that modern look.

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

Long Island Climate Recommendations

Due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, Long Island has a fairly moderate climate compared to the rest of the state, with long, hot summers and cool winters. Slightly colder temperatures are more likely on the north and east side of Long Island as you move away from the more densely populated areas of Brooklyn and Queens, while the western and southern parts of the island are more likely to see higher levels of precipitation.

Low-E Protection

Energy Efficiency

Pella® offers patio doors with Low-E glass to help keep your home insulated from Long Island’s chilly winters and moderate summers.

Diverse Climate

Diverse Climate

Prepare for bitterly cold winters and semi-humid summers with Pella® Impervia®. This strong fiberglass, for both windows and patio doors, is durable enough to help withstand extreme heat and subzero cold.

Weather Protection

Salty Air

In coastal climates close to water, your windows and sliding doors are more 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. Consider fiberglass to help maintain window integrity.
