Standard Sliding Doors

Bring the outside in and do it in a big way. Sliding patio doors are an affordable, space-saving way to open up a room. While hinged doors require objects to be well away from the door, a sliding door needs no swing room at all. It opens up a room with a great view of the outdoors and adds light and beauty to your home.

The frame of a sliding patio door is most commonly made from aluminum or vinyl. They open by sliding along horizontal tracks at the head and sill. A sliding door will have either a right–hand or left–hand operation. You will need to decide which is best for your room and situation.

Look for Quality

When buying a sliding door, consider the following:

  • Operation — Check how smoothly the rollers move in their tracks and how much effort it takes. The door should feel snug in its tracks, but move easily. It should feel more like it's floating than sliding.
  • Security — Examine the locking system. Hardware selections vary, and the best doors will feature quality hardware. Locks should meet or exceed local forced–entry code.
  • Energy Efficiency — Make sure the sliding door you buy is well insulated and comes with the appropriate energy-saving glass to reduce your heating and cooling costs.

Grids or no Grids

A sliding door can often be ordered with grids between the panes of glass to give a multiple–pane look. This gives the door the style and feel of a French patio door.

Every window and door purchase is different. Get pricing information and estimates on your project.

Exactly what we were looking for 1960's Eichler style home with aluminum sliding doors, needed replaced along with 9 pieces of frameless full-hgt. glass units. Doors worked perfectly style-wise, ease and quietness of operation is a plus. Retained look of home, noticeable change in keeping cold out. November 14, 2013
Love the sliding door I did not know what a new door would mean. I should have my other one changed out for another new one. That is when it is affordable. I recommend this door highly. Love it. September 10, 2013
Love my Style Line door and Tuscany Windows Just love my new windows and doors. Blocks out noise, easy to clean, easy to operate. Only problem I have is with the screen on the Style Line slider. It is very very difficult to install the screen. Ours was accidently knocked out and it took us quite a long time to re-install it. We loosened the screws, top and bottom and still had to use a tool to lift the wheels over the lip. that is the only reason for the three on ease of use. September 10, 2013
Beautiful doors! The four panel center opening 14' x 8' door we ordered is AMAZING!!! We redesigned our upcoming remodel and have ordered another quad door we love them so much! Good job Milgard! I incorporated Milgard products into my designs for clients for over 25 years when I drew plans in So Cal, and I am thrilled to finally have them in my own house! :) February 24, 2015
High Ratings so you're kdding right? all excellent? Nope, I'm not. We have had our windows for about 12 years. Recently our slider had become hard to move. we had 3 dogs going in and out of the door constantly. We called Milgard and they sent out a technician within 2 weeks. He was on time and had the door taken apart, wheels and tracked replaced in 10 minutes and was done. I asked him to take a look at one other window that is foggy all the time. He said that is not right. He took the measurements then and there. I now have an appointment set up for the replacement window. All this with no charge. One of the few companies that I have encountered that 100% backs their warranty. Very impressive. February 20, 2015
very happy with my choice Great deal for the money! I'm very happy with the installation and appearance of the windows. February 12, 2015
A lot of bang for the dollaar One of the best sliding doors on the market today. Sleek slim frames and dark bronze give this a great modern feel. Glide like butter. I'm an architect and needed something budget appropriate for my own home. I've specified Milgard frequently for clients and finally got to try them on my own home. Very pleased. February 8, 2015
High quality door at a reasonable price We purchased the Tuscany Standard Sliding Door, but with added triple locking and easy use handle. We researched other door manufacturers and determined the Milgard brand was the door we wanted. Milgard has a great reputation for excellent doors and windows and we knew it would be perfect. The door was just installed and we could not be happier with it. It is a beautiful, quality door that glides easily open, but also feels solid. We look forward to many years of use. We've also decided to change out another sliding door we had retro-fitted by another manufacturer five years ago and install another Tuscany Door instead. Thank you! February 3, 2015
