Sliding glass doors are a common patio door among lots of homeowners in New York City. True to their name, sliding doors usually have at least two full-size windows, one of which slides in front of the other. While they allow in a lot of natural light, they are also some of the most difficult doors to find treatments for. So much glass means a ton of energy loss and privacy issues -- in addition to the glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The most effective sliding glass patio door window treatments in New York City are interior shutters. These interior shutters don’t attach to the door itself but instead slide in front of it. When sun glare turns into an issue, push the shutters in front of the door and tilt the louvers to control light -- or close them completely for full privacy. Most sliding door shutters are built from a wood substitute, such as our Polywood® shutters, so you also see energy-saving benefits.

Sliding door shutters offer longevity and easy operation, thereby permitting continual activity in and out of the patio. The most common style of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters move behind each other on a track to open the doorway.
