Multi-Slide Doors

Telescoping multi-slide doors are featured in many high-end desert homes these days. This door system constitutes a glass wall with superior functionality and lower cost than the bi-folding doors alternative. Multi-slide patio doors, also known as stacking doors, are usually from 3 to 6 panels, which all slide in the same direction to effectively stack against each other when you open the wall. This is another advantage over bi-folding doors because the stacking doors all stay on the slide track. That means that no interior or exterior space is occupied by the doors. Energy Shield multi-slide glass patio doors offer the ultimate in sophisticated indoor/outdoor living and the energy efficiency and durability of our best patio doors for Arizona homes.

Patio Door Installation

Of course, your new high-quality exterior door system will perform only as well as the quality of the patio door installation. So, while you're planning your patio door replacement, think about installation. Make sure you factor in the patio door installation cost.
