Whether it is sunny or partially cloudy, the Vitamin D laden light from the sun brightens our homes and our moods. Open, bright spaces complement any décor and enhance all types of living spaces. A sunroom, bedroom, or even kitchen can benefit from large, energy-saving sliding glass panels and doors. Milgard is at the forefront of patio door design. Their quality and commitment to creating the look you want are unmatched. No matter what type of style you have in mind, they have the perfect door for your project.

A home’s front door is its personality, adding pop and curb appeal to the front entry, but the design of a patio door can be equally important. Enjoying your beautiful garden through a Milgard patio door, for instance, will certainly feel as if you’re sitting outdoors from the comfort of your home. The wider views provided by French doors onto the patio can provide much welcomed views to the garden or container plantings outdoors. Even a simple slider out to the patio or deck can open up the room in which it is sited while beckoning nature to fill the inside.

Beautifully crafted doors add subtle elegance or jaw-dropping impact to the interior and exterior of your home. A sweeping view can be achieved with a pocket glass wall. These come in aluminum or aluminum clad wood frames with thermal panels and state of the art weather stripping to weatherize the windows. They provide a nearly unbroken view across a wall. Stacking glass walls are another way to maximize a view and open up a room. Milgard has many other door options that will suit your personality and needs.

There are many different styles of doors that can complement your patio and the architectural style of your home. French doors can complement a classic Victorian, update an older turn-of-the-century house, and add elegance and durability to the sturdy coastal residence of a Cape Cod style home. Those with a Craftsman/Bungalow setting may enjoy a beautiful wood patio door in French or sliding styles. Sleek Modern homes really pop with the addition of a moving Glass Wall system which adds polish to homes with clean lines. Prairie Style, Stucco, Ranch, Tudor and Colonial style homes can take their pick from swing or sliding patio doors, any of which can easily complement your style of gardening and desire to be outdoors.

If shopping by frame type, consider vinyl, wood, or fiberglass options for both beauty and energy efficiency. The Essence Series® has wood interior combined with a strong fiberglass exterior. The Tuscany® Series is a timeless style in vinyl. For strong efficient fiberglass, the Ultra™ Series is an excellent option.

Milgard custom makes each door to order. They temper the glass, build the fiberglass frames and make the vinyl components. In business for over 50 years, this company provides an unmatched Full Lifetime Warranty on their products, with local service personnel available to take care of any detail. Beautifully crafted and installed doors can update your home and enhance views, bringing the garden or landscape into the home for continual enjoyment year round.
