The door leading to your patio should be just as inviting as the patio itself. It should draw you to your outdoor space where you can enjoy the weather and let in natural light into the living area. Since your patio is an extension of your home, the décor and features should be chosen intentionally to compliment the rest of your home.
Since a large portion of patio doors is comprised of glass, some homeowners may worry about their security. We have taken every measure to ensure our patio doors at Milano Windows and Doors are durable and secure. All of our patio doors come with the following features:
- Durable Frame
- Weatherproof Sash
- Insulated Threshold
- Energy Star Glass Panes
- Nylon Rollers
- Contemporary Handles
- Extruded Aluminium Screen
- Transoms & Sidelights
Every now and then your patio door will need repair. If the damage is extensive, patio door replacement may be necessary. Milano Windows and Doors offers a number of patio door options to suit your style. Then you can select the patio door material that best suits your needs from a choice of vinyl, wood, aluminum/steel, or fiberglass.
Types of Patio Doors
Swinging or French Patio Doors
French patio doors have a more traditional look and are often a favourite among homeowners. The doors open outwards on a hinge, hence the term swinging doors. These doors are large and aesthetically appealing.
Folding Patio Doors
These doors fold inwards and are very effective in insulating your room. When closed, they form a tight seal that keeps drafts out of the home. Because they fold inwards, they maximize space and allow you to control whether you want the door fully open or partially open.
Sliding Patio Doors
Sliding patio doors and French patio doors are quite similar but have slight differences. Sliding glass door frames are usually smaller than French patio door frames, meaning that the latter allows more natural light into your home.
Milano solutions offer to replace your patio door with a sliding door exterior that opens to your backyard. A sliding glass door is a great option for backyard doors. It will bring in natural light and give easy access to your backyard. Milano’s experienced professionals will work quickly and efficiently. Replacing patio door will make you have a better outdoor experience. Your patio is not just an addition to your house; it’s an extension of it. If you love sitting outside in the summer or enjoying a barbecue in the backyard, then your patio plays a significant role in your home. However, the constant use of patio doors means they are susceptible to breaks, dents, or scratches over time. In this case, it’s time to invest in a new patio door.
Key Features in Our Patio Doors
The patio doors at Milano are equipped with features guaranteed to make your home chic, practical, and modern. Here are some of the elements available in our patio doors:
Our patio doors are equipped with solid frames made of aluminum, wood and PVC. The frames are strong, resistant to harsh weather conditions and come in many colors.
Our doors come with insulated sashes that prevent air from coming in and out of your house. This way, you reduce the use of your heating system in the winter and your AC unit in the summer.
A drifty door is often the result of a faulty threshold. Our door thresholds, however, come with weatherstripping technology to stop drafts from affecting the house’s internal temperature.
Energy Star Glass Panes
The glass we install on our window panes is energy-efficient and Energy Star certified. The glass maintains a room’s temperature because it reflects the heat off the doors and doesn’t allow any heat from inside the house to escape.
We use nylon rollers on our patio doors instead of steel rollers because they are less noisy and resistant to rusting. These features make nylon rollers more durable and practical than their steel counterparts.
The handles on our patio doors are not flimsy and come in a variety of finishes. You can also choose to install either standard or multi-point handles on your doors according to your personal preferences.
Extruded Aluminium Screen
Extruded aluminum is basically aluminum that’s shaped by being molded using a special metal cutting device. We install extruded aluminum on our patio door screens because it’s high-quality and rolls seamlessly with our nylon rollers.
Transoms & Sidelights
These are additional panels that you can add to your patio door to let more light into the house. A transom is a glass pane that sits above the door slab. Sidelights are placed on sides of the door slabs. They enhance the appearance of a patio door with different kinds of patterns, styles & design.

When you’re picking out your patio door, we want you to have options. Therefore, we offer the following patio door configurations, fully customizable to your liking:
Contour (Prairie) Grille
