You’ve worked hard to design and beautify the outdoor living area of your home, be it a garden area in your backyard, inviting patio or deck, and you want to enjoy it – rain or shine, inside or outside.
Many of our patio design clients here at Big Easy Iron Works want patio doors for their New Orleans home that will give them the ability to enjoy the outdoors whether or not they’re actually outside, opening up their home to the fresh New Orleans air.
Some of our clients prefer double French doors to their patio: with a traditional look and a strong statement, these doors provide a focal point for a room as well as a beautiful view of your backyard.
Others choose sliding doors. A sliding door can open up your view to your backyard whether you’re on your way outside or relaxing with friends on the couch, allowing you to appreciate your beautiful yard (and watch any kids or pets playing outside) rain or shine.
We’re the team you need to get it done right, on time and on budget. With over 30 years’ service in the NOLA area, we’ve earned a top-rated reputation for our services, and we take pride in providing affordable, high-quality patio doors for the community.

Why should you install a sliding door or a French door?
Generally, our clients prefer sliding doors and French doors to traditional doors because of the view they afford of the garden and yard, and because of the sunshine they let into a room, as well as the aesthetic and unique design options available.
