Sliding glass doors are a common patio door for lots of homeowners in Miami. As their name implies, the doors usually consist of two or more large windows, one of which slides over the other. While they invite in lots natural light, they are also among the most challenging doors to find treatments for. A lot of glass means a ton of energy loss and privacy issues -- and then there’s the sun glare if your backyard lies to the east or west.

The most effective sliding glass patio door window covers in Miami are plantation shutters. These shutters don’t mount to the door itself but rather move in front of it. When sun glare turns into an annoyance, move the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to direct light -- or close them all of the way for full privacy. Most sliding door shutters are made from a wood substitute, like our Polywood® shutters, so you even get energy-saving benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide longevity and ease of use, thereby permitting continual use of the patio. The most common configuration of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters slide behind each other on a track to open the doorway.
