Interior Shutters: The Ultimate Patio Door Window Treatment in Boston

September 17, 2020

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or beautiful French doors, something they have in common is their big glass panes that offer you a fantastic view of the outside. However, that much glass can cause issues, such as heat loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need a quality window cover to get the most out of your windows.

Find out why interior plantation shutters are the preferred patio door window treatments in Boston and how they can fix these tricky problems!

The Best Sliding Door Window Treatments For Boston

Sliding patio doors in Boston.

Sliding glass doors are a popular patio door for many homeowners in Boston. True to their name, sliding doors usually have two or more large windows, one of which slides past the other. While they invite in a lot of sunlight, they are also one of the most difficult doors to cover. This amount of glass means a lot of heat loss and privacy concerns -- and then there’s the glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The most preferred sliding glass patio door window treatments in Boston are plantation shutters. These interior shutters don’t fasten to the door itself but instead move in front of it. When sun glare is an annoyance, simply move the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to redirect light -- or close them all of the way for total privacy. The majority of sliding door shutters are manufactured from a wood substitute, like our Polywood® shutters, so you also see energy-saving benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide durability and easy operation, thereby enabling continual use of the patio. The most common style of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters slide behind one another on a track to open the entryway.

The Top French Door Window Covers For Boston

Patio Doors with Plantation Shutters in Boston

If you lack a sliding glass door leading out to your outdoor space, you possibly have another popular door type: French doors. This type of entryway features twin doors that open away from each other. The effect may be a tad bit grander than a sliding glass or standard door, but they have similar problems. Large sheets of glass permit heat loss and sun glare.

It is no wonder that wood substitute interior shutters also prove to be the preferred French door window treatments in Boston. They have the same beauty, strength, and environmental friendliness that sliding door shutters have, except they can affix right onto the French door frame. Consequently, your French door plantation shutter acts a lot more like your standard window shutters, and you don’t have to push them aside to go out the doorway.
