Interior Shutters: The Top Patio Door Window Treatment in Tampa

September 17, 2020

Whether your patio doors are a sliding glass door or trendy French doors, one thing they have in common is their large window panes that offer you a clear view out into your yard. However, so much glass can cause a few issues, such as energy loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need a quality window cover to enjoy the benefits of your windows.

Find out why plantation shutters are the best patio door window treatments in Tampa and how they can resolve these annoying challenges!

The Best Sliding Door Window Treatments In Tampa

Sliding patio doors in Tampa.

Sliding glass doors are a popular patio door among many homeowners in Tampa. True to their name, the doors usually include at least two full-size windows, one of which slides over the other. While they allow in lots sunlight, they are also among the most frustrating doors to find treatments for. A lot of glass means a substantial amount of energy loss and privacy worries -- and then there’s the sun glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The best sliding glass patio door window treatments in Tampa are plantation shutters. These shutters don’t attach to the door itself but rather slide in front of it. When sun glare becomes a problem, move the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to redirect light -- or close them entirely for optimum privacy. The majority of sliding door shutters are fabricated from faux wood, including our Polywood® shutters, so you also receive energy-efficiency benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide resilience and easy operation, thereby enabling frequent use of the patio. The most popular style of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters slide behind each other on a track to open the entryway.

The Most Functional French Door Window Covers For Tampa

Patio Doors with Plantation Shutters in Tampa

If you lack a sliding glass door opening out onto your outdoor space, you may have another popular door type: French doors. This kind of entryway features twin doors that open away from one another. The effect might be a bit more impressive than a sliding glass or typical door, but they have the same problems. Substantial pieces of glass allow for energy loss and sun glare.

It should come as no surprise that wood substitute interior shutters also prove to be the best French door window treatments in Tampa. They have the same flair, durability, and environmental friendliness that sliding door shutters provide, except they can affix right onto the French door frame. Consequently, your French door plantation shutter functions a lot more like your common window shutters, and you aren’t forced to push them to the side to walk through the doorway.
