Patio and garden sliding doors dramatically increase both ventilation and natural light, while allowing easy access to the outside. Our doors are extremely energy-efficient, low maintenance and can be customer designed per your request as they include a variety of colors, moulds and panel arrangements which will add a unique and charming look and feel to your Greater Toronto Area Home.
One of the qualities of a high-end vinyl sliding door is the degree of quality of the sashes as a weaker sash can cause deformities thus decreasing the insulation. With our metal reinforced sashes, our doors are rigid and energy efficient. Our door tracks are comprised of anodized aluminum which greatly increases their strength and durability, while a metal or nylon roller wheel provides effortless and smooth glide along the tracks.
