Patio Door Style

Like windows, patio doors come in many styles. They can be streamlined in appearance to emphasize viewing area. Or they can be works of art in their own right, such as a French patio door clad with a rich wood interior and accented with a vintage grid pattern. They can slide open and shut to save space. Or they can open inward or outward.

No one type of patio door works with every architecture style. When considering patio doors for replacement or new construction, you will want to take the opportunity to find just the right door. Use this part of our site to get a better idea of the advantages of each door style.

Vinyl Patio Doors

Milgard sets the standard for vinyl patio doors. We extrude our own vinyl patio door components using our custom vinyl recipe to deliver the best quality, consistency and durability. In fact, many of our vinyl patio doors actually meet light commercial ratings, and meet or exceed the criteria for structural integrity and reliable performance established by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA). All are available in custom sizes and covered by our Full Lifetime Warranty.1

You'll love our worry-free vinyl patio doors. They won't warp, crack or peel. Nor do they absorb moisture. That means you can depend on them to slide open easily in any weather. What's more, they are energy efficient, so they help keep your home comfortable as well.

Fiberglass Patio Doors

The complex frame components required for patio French doors were once impossible to attain with fiberglass. Milgard's research and development team changed all that. We engineer fiberglass French doors (in-swing and out-swing) and French-style sliding patio door systems that are as attractive as they are weatherproof and durable. It's a difference you'll appreciate for a lifetime.

Milgard fiberglass patio French doors are designed to match the beauty and profile of wood patio doors, but with none of their maintenance headaches. Milgard fiberglass patio doors ward off wind, snow and rain, year after year, without peeling, swelling, expanding, contracting, cracking or warping. They're impervious to cold, heat, insects, salt air and corrosion. Available in custom sizes and multiple panel configurations, Milgard fiberglass patio doors include our industry-leading Full Lifetime Warranty with Glass Breakage.

Aluminum Patio Doors

Architects and builders have long appreciated aluminum patio doors for their overall strength, lasting value and ability to configure into large combinations to maximize views. We continually redesign, improve and update our rollers, locks, frame members and hardware. That's why our aluminum patio doors rate high in appearance, strength and value. All Milgard aluminum patio doors include our exclusive SunCoat® Low-E glass, two grid styles and several finish options for complementing your home.

Available in standard aluminum for mild climates or thermally improved for extreme weather conditions, Milgard aluminum patio doors bring a decidedly modern edge to entrances into any home or building.
