South Carolina Sliding Doors

Sliding Doors in all Sizes for any Room in Your Home

South Carolina is known for its stunning natural beauty and the welcoming Southern hospitality of the people who live here. The charm of old plantation houses and palmetto trees is a draw for tourists and locals alike. With mountains lining one side of the state and beautiful beaches on the other, South Carolina really does offer the best of both worlds for nature lovers.

Sliding doors are great for a mild climate. When closed, they invite in plenty of natural light with wide expanses of glass. When glided open on the track, sliding doors offer convenient access to outdoor patio areas without the need for clearance around the door. Sliding doors made of glass also help to welcome more natural light into your home with wide expanses of glass and the ability to add extra panels. Sliding doors are versatile and the variety of styling options available allow you to match your sliding door to your home style.

Commonly known as: sliding patio door, sliding door, sliding deck doors, gliding door, glass pocket door, accordion door, folding door, bypass sliding door

  • Sliding Screen Doors Sliding Screen1 Doors

    The mild climate in South Carolina is well-suited to indoor-outdoor living spaces, but like most anywhere else, mosquitoes and other insects can be a problem. Sliding patio screen doors are increasing in popularity as a result. Screens1 let you bring in fresh air while keeping the mosquitoes out. Pella sliding doors have several screen door options to choose from so you can keep a barrier between you and the bugs.

  • Sliding Door Hardware Sliding Door Hardware

    Add personality to a sliding door with great hardware. Typically the only visible hardware on a sliding door is the handle, but these handles can be customized to match your style and finish preferences. Craftsman style homes lend themselves nicely to oil rubbed bronze or distressed bronze sliding door handles. Traditional plantation style homes may benefit from the classic collection in a brass or satin nickel. Coastal style or low country style homes often feature a more relaxed style and may wish to choose a classic sliding door handle in standard white to minimize the look of the hardware. Pella sliding doors also offer the option of a Multipoint Locking System for added security. This system secures the door both at the top and bottom.

  • French-style wood sliding patio doors Sliding Door Options

    Many Columbia homeowners are choosing to build new homes in popular communities like Saluda River Club. These homes often fall into styles like updated California Bungalow and contemporary Craftsman style. Both of these styles embrace indoor-outdoor living spaces such as outdoor kitchens and living areas while capitalizing on natural light and breezes. Sliding doors can be customized to fit your home and needs with plentiful choices in color, style, and configuration. Custom sizes and multiple panels can help you configure the door that best fits your space.

    Sliding doors can be used in almost any room in the house. Installing a kitchen sliding door gives convenient access to carry food to an outdoor dining area. A bedroom sliding door can bring fresh breezes into the room for great sleeping comfort.

  • Built-In-Blinds Sliding Glass Doors Sliding Glass Doors with Built-In-Blinds

    Homeowners in the Palmetto state are opting for between-the-glass blinds to provide cover for their sliding patio doors to customize the amount of light and privacy in their room without getting in the way. Built-in blinds allow you to choose how much light you want to let in and close off your big glass panels at night — all without getting in the way of foot traffic or operation of the sliding door. The advantage to built-in-blinds over other sliding door window treatments is that the blinds are protected between the glass and less susceptible to dirt, debris, children, and pets.

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