Are you planning on remodeling your home soon and deciding on large patio door options? If so, you should definitely consider bi-fold patio doors or multi-slide patio doors. These large patio doors create an indoor-outdoor living space that can make any type of home look amazing. This blog will go over bi-folds vs. multi-sides to help you figure out which one is right for your home.

Bi-Fold Patio Doors

Bi-Folds vs. Multi-Slides 

What are Bi-Fold Patio Doors?

Bi-fold or folding patio doors are large patio door systems consisting of multiple door panels that fold neatly to one or both sides of the door frame. When folded open, bi-folds leave a wide-open space that creates a smooth transition from the inside of your home to your outdoor space.

What are the Benefits of Bi-Fold Patio Doors?

Bi-fold patio doors can replace an entire wall, which helps create expansive views for the ultimate indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Bi-folds are super easy to operate as they effortlessly fold open or close. The large opening created by folding doors allows plenty of fresh air and natural light into your home.

Why Choose Bi-Fold Patio Doors?

Bi-fold patio doors completely transform any space by adding a unique, eye-catching design element. They provide large openings and a refreshing look, different from what standard sliding patio doors offer.

Are Bi-Fold Patio Doors Fully Customizable?

All bi-fold patio doors are custom-made and have almost unlimited design options. There’s an excellent variety of exterior colors available. We can also match the exterior clad color of your new bi-fold doors to other patio doors and windows in your home to create a cohesive look!

Multi-Slide Patio Doors


Bi-Folds vs. Multi-Slides

What are Multi-Slide Patio Doors?

Multi-slide patio doors are large door systems consisting of multiple door panels that slide smoothly and stack on one/both sides of the door frame (or completely disappear into a pocket in the wall). These doors are also great for connecting the inner space of your home with the outer space.

What are the Benefits of Multi-Slide Patio Doors?

Multi-slide patio doors help give homes a resort-style, luxurious home atmosphere. These glass patio doors easily slide open and closed while creating clear views to the outside. Multi-slides provide an abundant amount of sunlight and fresh air that will make you feel more connected to nature. The narrow sidelines offer the best visibility, so if the best outside view is your goal, this is a great option for you.

Why Choose Multi-Slide Patio Doors?

Multi-slide patio door’s unique ability to hide within a wall pocket makes it a great option if maximum visibility and openness is desired. Plus, their easy use is another aspect that makes them so popular.

Are Multi-Slide Patio Doors Fully Customizable?

All Multi-slide doors are fully-customizable. There is a wide variety of wood and paints colors to choose from. Custom-sized doors are also available for these doors.

When it comes to brightening up your home and giving it an elegant aesthetic, bi-fold patio doors and multi-slide patio doors should absolutely be considered. Deciding on a door depends on your needs and wants for the overall aesthetic of your home. Whichever patio doors you choose, you will absolutely fall in love with their beauty.

These guys are awesome. They did a coating on my house called “Texcote”. I love it. My house has never looked better. The crew was great. They were Clean on time and very nice, and after they finished, Renzo himself came back to do an inspection and check to see if I was happy. Not many companies do that. I thought that was great. Definitely will recommend them, and I will use them from now on for all my home improvement needs.
