Center Hinged Patio Doors from ProVia – A Great Alternative for Minneapolis Homes

Most homes these days have at least one patio door, even the older and historical homes.  But the typical patio door – the two-panel slider – often seems out of place in a traditional style Minneapolis home.  Our Minneapolis door company specializes in energy-efficient door and window solutions for these homes, and we’re proud to help owners find the right patio door solution for their architectural gems.  We often recommend alternatives such as French doors in situations like these.

A few door manufacturers we work with offer great alternatives to the standard patio door.  One we’re particularly excited about is ProVia’s Designer Center Hinged Patio Door, shown here. Look how elegant it looks on this brick home.  (Note the beautiful transom window installed above it. ProVia offers gorgeous vinyl windows that complement their entry, patio, and storm doors.  We install those as well.)

Here are just a few features of these exceptional doors that really stand out for us.  Keep in mind that ProVia’s doors have repeatedly won EnergyStar’s Partner of the Year award, and that they are one of the industry leaders in energy-efficient exterior doors, storm doors, and patio doors.  That information alone makes them one of our favorite door companies!  The Designer Center Hinged Patio doors also offer:

  • Schlage key locks with deadbolts.  How many sliding doors can offer this?  No more putting a broom handle or a piece of wood in your slider track!
  • Multiple hardware options, including a Lifetime Finish!  The lock area is also exceptionally secure, being reinforced with a 20-gauge steel plate. 
  • Spring-loaded latch system activates automatically when you close the door.
  • Fiberglass screens come standard, but you can also choose from aluminum, heavy duty fiberglass, or stainless steel.
  • These doors are available in both a two-panel model as well as a three-panel configuration for larger openings. 
  • Multiple in-swing options as shown here  This allows you to work with us to design a door system that works best for you and your home.
