Enjoying your backyard shouldn't be a chore. A new or replacement patio door from Hodges Window & Doors could be the breath of fresh air your home needs. We'll help make the transition between the indoors and outdoors as seamless as possible, with looks that complement your home without shattering your budget.
A sliding patio door is essentially a window you can step through, with the benefits of increased airflow and natural lighting, in addition to accessibility.
French patio doors add a touch of class with gorgeous aesthetics, with more options in framing materials and glass finish for enhanced privacy and security.
Bi-fold patio doors feature multiple panels which makes them a good choice when trying to save space or use space efficiently.

Unify the outdoors and the indoors like never before with the Marvin Signature™ Modern Multi-Slide Door. With wide glass panels and narrow rails and stiles, sightlines are minimally obstructed regardless of sizing or configuration. Multi-Slide Doors are available in Uni-Directional or Bi-Parting stacked and pocket configurations and are sized to order.
What are the three main types of patio doors?
The three main types of patio doors are hinged (French), sliding, and bifold.
Which is better — French patio doors or sliding patio doors?
Neither style of patio door is necessarily "better" than the other — it just depends on what your preferences and priorities are. French patio doors offer much in the way of elegance and security — however, door panels can prove an obstruction or even knock objects over as they're opened.
Conversely, sliding patio doors will never get in the way and also offer superior ventilation (and can be fitted with a screen), but are less secure and at times more prone to mechanical issues than hinged patio doors.
Can sliding patio doors be made more secure and private?
Yes, sliding patio doors can be made more secure and private with some modest additional investments. For security, consider purchasing a sliding glass door lock or security bar. For even more peace of mind, electronic sensors and glass-break monitors can also be installed.
Vertical blinds, panels, and shutters increase privacy, but often fall victim to kids and pets — a tinted window film may be a good alternative in an active household.
How much does a patio door cost to install?
The average cost of installing a patio door was about $2,500 in 2020, but prices can range greatly depending on the sizing, materials, and style. For instance, a high-end bifold patio door might approach or exceed $10,000.
Will a patio door increase my energy costs?
Contemporary patio doors will not significantly increase your energy costs, especially when properly sealed and weatherstripped and installed with insulating double (or triple) paned low-e glass. Vinyl or fiberglass framing tends to perform the best year-round.
Before, we could never keep up with the cold. Now we just turn the heat on, and it stays in the building. Complaints are way down, and we're very happy.
The installer, who I think was Tom Langworthy, did excellent work. He was respectful of our space and cleaned up after himself. He always conducted himself in a professional manner. He seems highly competent and he engenders confidence in his workmanship.
Your craftsmanship made all the difference, and it was nice getting to know you. We hope to hire you again.
We love our new door. The installation work was timely, quick and well-done.
Thank you so much for fixing my window today! Thank you for coming even though these windows aren't yours......No wonder the management office here thinks you guys can do anything and are the most helpful window company around.
Tom is definitely a master craftsman and did an excellent job. Just want you and the company to know that both Tom and Larry did an outstanding job and we are very pleased with the results.
I wouldn't deal with anyone else. Working with Hodges, I know I can get anything I want, and my imagination can run wild.
I think they did a very good job. I will go back to them in a heartbeat.
I must tell you that Mark Russow and everyone at The Hodges Window Company are nothing less than a great representative/distributor for your company and we will not hesitate to recommend both companies to our friends and family.
Throughout the entire process - from our first meeting to the on-going daily supervision - by you of the job, the professionalism, the quality of the products, and the workmanship
I want you to know that your two colleagues who installed the windows did an outstanding job...Jean and I could not be more pleased.
We are so very, very happy (once again!) with the Hodges Company....this is the third time we have had a project completed, and each time we've been so pleased.
We will definitely be using Hodges again when we look to replace some windows in our house
All in all a really fantastic company - they've been in business a long time and it shows based on how they treat the costumer. Am planning to do windows next year, and they will be my first phone call.
I just wanted to express my appreciation to the team your company sent to install a few doors and repair windows in our house. They were professional, caring, cooperative and extremely courteous. They are a major asset to your company. On the whole, our experience with the Hodges Company has been very positive and we happily recommend your services to others.
Your guys did a great job. The temperature in the house is up by 3 degrees and the heat pump is running half as much.
I couldn't be more pleased with both my windows and the installation and now "on a clear day I can see forever". If you would like to use me as a reference I would be more than happy to cooperate.
The whole process from initial meeting to installation was painless and quite surprisingly, a lot less expensive than we thought it would be... Thanks again for taking such good care of us. If anyone I know is looking for new windows, I will certainly recommend your company.
I am so pleased with my windows, your installers and staff. I would indeed recommend your company to anyone and everyone. They were quick, efficient and very polite.
The deck door is fabulous and the installation is super!!! I love how wide it is, and how easily it opens and it actually locks! thank you for the expert product and installation.
Hodges had very knowledge salespeople, highly skilled installation crews, and the product lives up to expectations. You can't ask for better than that.
We enjoyed meeting with Brian Whitehouse and were impressed with his ability to explain our options, always respecting our wishes and never annoying us with hard-sell tactics...It was such a pleasure to deal with people who know their job and do it well.
Everything was excellent. The salesman offered good advice and provided examples of how the end result would look. Hodges' workers arrived on time and worked quickly. The lead installer was quite knowledgeable as well, so the job was done neatly and without incident.
