What is a patio door?

Patio Door Lite

Sliding patio doors, also known as gliding doors and sliding glass doors, are found in virtually every home. They have a similar appearance but operate differently than a French door which swings in or outward. The operating glass panel of a sliding patio door glides on rollers on a track in the sill. This design provides great ventilation with the operating panel stored completely and safely out of the way when in the open position.

What patio doors are available at Window Source Virginia?

Window Source patio doors come in two, three and four panel models.  All glass panels are double pane, and are designed with code-compliant tempered safety glass..  The vinyl gliding panel frames are reinforced with heavy-gauge steel to make your door sturdy and durable, while featuring a full interlocking meeting rail.

The sliding panel rides on a solid brass rolling system for easy operation and the threshold features a strong anodized aluminum sill cover to last a lifetime. This will provide you with the opportunity to enjoy the large open view from your new patio door.

Each door comes standard with white or beige handles.  And we also offer optional brass, satin chrome, or oil-rubbed handles.
