Scranton Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding Glass Doors Save Space and Let in More Light

Sliding glass doors consist of two large glass panels to give you lots of light and clear views of all the Scranton green space. Sliding doors don’t open in or out; they glide effortlessly along a track within the frame — saving valuable space inside your house and on your patio.

Sliding glass doors are one of the most popular patio door styles and offer many design options. They come in a variety of materials, colors, finishes, and styles. So you can find the right fit for your home, whether it’s an Electric City original or a more modern style.

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Victorian style home Victorian Style Victorian-style architecture is common all across Pennsylvania, and Scranton is no different. This ornate style is known for its elaborate details and décor. Victorian homes are tall and have geometric towers. Wrap-around porches typically stretch from one side with tall windows, past the front entry door, to a French-style sliding glass door. The sliding doors may also be ornate, incorporating transom windows with muntins for that symmetrical style.
  • Traditional wood, French-style sliding glass doors French Sliding Patio Doors

    French patio doors and sliding glass doors are different. But you can get the French look and feel with all the benefits of a sliding door. French-style sliding glass doors fit the traditional Victorian architecture of many Scranton homes. Wood sliding patio doors can be painted or finished to match your ornate interior trim. Vinyl French-style sliding doors are less versatile but come in a variety of exterior colors so you can match your door to the bold Victorian color schemes.

  • Sliding Door Walls Sliding Door Walls

    Long sliding glass doors create the effect that your whole wall is one large sliding door and makes your home feel bigger. The wide glass panels on these sliding doors flood your home with sunlight and make large openings to connect your indoor and outdoor living spaces. Adding additional panels or other windows to your sliding glass door enhances these benefits.

  • Sliding Patio Doors with Screens Sliding Patio Doors With Screens

    Screens1 are a popular addition to sliding glass doors. They let you catch a cool Pennsylvania breeze while helping to keep the bugs out. Finer fabric is now available on sliding screen doors. These high-transparency screens are nearly invisible from the street — great for front-facing sliding doors on Victorian-style homes.

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

Grilles are a great add-on to achieve the Victorian style of traditional Scranton homes. Transoms with muntins can give you the style without obstructing your view through the large glass panels of your sliding patio door. Brass handles provide a more ornate finish than other sliding patio door hardware options. Find more customizations here.
