patio_doors

North Star patio doors offer a perfect combination of beauty, security and low-maintenance. Unlike hinged doors, they glide open and close with ease and take up less space, making them an ideal option when space is tight – and foot traffic is heavy.

Patio doors are often located off of the living or dining room with a walk-out to a patio or deck. For beautiful natural light and unobstructed views to the outside, sliding doors are a great option for any home. The skilled contractors at Linton Window & Door will ensure that the space and door are constructed to create a cohesive look and design that fits your style.

At your initial consultation, we’ll discuss what color you want for the door, what type of glass, and other details so that you get exactly what you envision for your home. Located in Cambridge, we provide custom door installations throughout the region.
