2 Styles Of Patio Door Shutters For Your San Jose Home10/29/2015Curtis Orton Your patio door brings in light and the view. At the same time, it reveals the contents of your home and the whereabouts of its residents. Deflect the looks of passersby with a robust window treatment to complement your decor. No, we’re not talking about vertical blinds that have been a staple in San Jose households. We mean sliding shutters for your patio door! The size of your patio door, patio door shutters are two or more panels sliding on a track. The panels come in durable Polywood® and Ovation® wood. You choose the louver size, the paint, the stain, and the frame style. And our specialists custom craft your shutter and install it to your unique door. Benefits Of Patio Door Shutters In San Jose, CA Plantation shutters are an excellent window treatment for patio doors. Add a modern touch to your home with Polywood, and bring the warmth of wood inside with Ovation. Their louvers highlight the architecture of the window and at the same time show off the view. And they let you adjust how much of the light and view is brought through your patio door’s glass. This is accomplished by adjusting the shutter louvers with a tilt rod mounted on either the front of the panels or hidden in the rear. The shutters are adjustable for more privacy and less glare where a TV or computer screen are present in a room. And when you have Polywood shutters installed, slanting the shutter louvers closed means more savings on power bills. This separates plantation shutters from available window coverings in the market for patio doors - and that’s the case across all patio door shutter styles. One of the key options to think about is your preference of bypass or bifold style patio door shutters. Bypass Style Patio Door Shutters Bypass style shutters work great on every patio door in your home. Two sets of shutters slide back and forth on a dedicated track installed above shutters. When you slide one set in front of the other, you get full view of the outside environment and can use the patio door itself. Bifold Style Patio Door Shutters Bifold style shutters are the best solution when you have space in front of the patio doors for the panels to be folded out of the way. Two sets of shutters slide on a top-mounted track. And when they’re folded out, you get maximum access to your patio door and your view.
