Omaha Bifold Patio Doors

Bifold Doors Fold Up Like an Accordion to Extend Your Space

Omaha was founded in 1854, just as the Victorian Era was taking off. Many of the oldest and most well-known homes in the area are Victorian houses. Today, it’s a part of Silicon Prairie, and the surge in new construction to support the growing city trends toward modern design.

Bifold patio doors connect these two architectural styles just as they connect your indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces. They create a large wall of folding doors with glass panels that can add to the elegance of a historic home or modernize a newer one. The panels swing and stack up like an accordion, creating a more expansive opening than sliding glass doors or French patio doors.

Commonly known as: folding patio doors, exterior folding doors, exterior bifold doors, accordion patio doors, concertina doors

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Mid-century modern home Modern Patio Doors

    Folding glass door systems are a favorite of modern style. Modern homes have a natural look, emphasizing textures like wood, leather and linen and flooding rooms with sunlight through large windows and patio doors. Wood bifold patio doors with natural stains or neutral colors create giant glass patio walls that keep the focus on the outdoors.

  • Bifold Patio Doors Patio Door Blinds and Curtains

    Big folding patio doors maximize the natural light during the daytime. At night, many homeowners still prefer the privacy of patio door coverings like curtains, blinds and shades. Vertical blinds and curtains are great options for covering glass walls when you want additional privacy or security. When you open up your accordion patio doors and push them to the side, you can do the same with blinds and curtains.

  • victorian homes Victorian Style

    The oldest Victorian homes in Omaha face Hanscom Park on the city’s east side but the style stretches across the city to neighborhoods like Kountze Place in North Omaha. Wood accordion folding doors complement the traditional charm of these historic homes and create a more open environment to their closed floor plans. Square grille patterns on the glass door panels can make your bifold patio doors less modern and more reminiscent of Victorian architecture.

  • Wooden Patio Doors Custom-Sized Bifold Doors

    Bifold patio doors can be customized to fit any space. If you love the look and functionality but have limited wall space, you can get a 4-panel bifold door. To turn your entire wall into a door, you can add up to 10 panels for the widest possible opening. In addition to the size of the patio door, you can also choose how it opens. Door panels can all travel to one side or open in the middle. You can fold doors equally to each side or have an asymmetrical operation where more panels push to one side than the other.

Recommended Customizations*

Folding patio doors are completely customizable — not just to fit your spatial needs or functional preferences — but also to complement the style of your home. Shaped bifold door hardware in brass, bronze or distressed metals have a more traditional feel. Paired with grilles in square patterns, you can create a classic look worthy of one of Omaha’s historic districts. For a more contemporary look, keep the glass panels unadorned and opt for sleeker accordion door handles in polished or satin metals.

  •   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.
