New Product Announcement: An Innovative Line of Patio Doors for Minneapolis Homes

As an installer of replacement windows and exterior doors here in the Twin Cities, one thing we take into account when we decide to partner with manufacturers is their record on innovation and whether they tend to be pioneers in their industry.  One company we are proud to work with is Weather Shield®. One reason is that their windows, entry, and patio doors perform very well in our harsh climate.  But for us another plus is that continuous innovation drives this company, and they offer some of the best warranties in the window and door industry. So when they announce a new product line, we pay attention. And after hearing that Weather Shield® had added a sliding patio door to its Contemporary Collection, we wanted to get the word out.

A Sleek, Slim New Option in Sliding Patio Doors from Weather Shield®

Weather Shield® has a reputation for manufacturing high quality, energy efficient doors and windows, but the Next Gen Sliding Patio Door line gets high marks. Architectural Record recently announced it had selected this product line for their 2019 award for Best Architectural Product in the window and door category.  We strive to install award-winning products like this, and we are very pleased to be able to offer these doors to homeowners here in the Minneapolis area.

In addition to a low sill profile, these doors are also getting attention for their superior performance as well as ease of operation. And what’s more, the slim profile of the frame means a lighter, more modern look as well as increased viewing area. That also means more light coming in. In the past, homeowners often had to choose between great performance and a slimmer frame. But with this innovative new sliding patio door line you’ll get both.  The hardware includes a shifting lever that effortlessly engages or releases the gaskets sealing the surrounding the door frame for smooth gliding no matter what the weather.

Another plus for us?  These doors are available in larger sizes than many other patio door companies offer. Panels can be ordered up to 5′ x 10′.  The doors are manufactured of extruded aluminum and come in a variety of interior and exterior finishes.
