Sliding patio doors help to bring the outdoors into your home in ways other entry doors would not. With clean lines and wider expanses of glass than many other sliding patio doors, Marvin Essential™ patio doors give you wider views, creating a soothing connection between your indoors and the outdoors. Imagine how a patio door up to 8 feet tall and 9 feet wide would open up your room. And Marvin Essential patio doors’ smooth-functioning performance enhances this connection to nature by letting you go in and out with ease. Instead of struggling to open your patio door, you’ll find Marvin Essential patio doors’ top-hung screen doors operate smoothly, without jamming.

That’s because Marvin Essential patio doors are made of Ultrex® fiberglass, which will not sag, warp or rot. This state-of-the-art pultruded fiberglass material outperforms and outlasts vinyl, roll-form aluminum, and other fiberglass composites. In fact, the material has passed numerous, rigorous tests simulating harsh conditions to earn the American Architectural Manufacturers Association verification, AAMA 624, certifying that Ultrex is the best in class among fiberglass products. Ultrex fiberglass makes for beautiful yet virtually indestructible interiors and exteriors that stand up to rain, sun, wind, heat and time, so they keep on looking beautiful and working beautifully for years.


While Marvin Essential patio doors are a great option for homeowners who want to keep things simple, they do offer enough options to coordinate with your home’s interior and exterior décor.

Marvin Essential patio doors from Big L Windows and Doors are available in six exterior colors—Bronze, Ebony, Cashmere, Evergreen, Pebble Gray and Stone White—and three interior finishes. Bronze and ebony interiors are available with the matching exterior finish; stone white interiors can be paired with any exterior. Ultrex fiberglass provides a smooth and strong exterior finish, three times thicker than competitive finishes, that resists peeling, fading, cracking and chalking—and can even be painted without voiding the warranty.

Marvin Essential sliding patio door hardware is tough and attractive, as well. Choose from two styles in Almond Frost, Matte Black or White, or in Brass, Oil-Rubbed Bronze or Satin Nickel metallic finishes protected by a physical vapor deposition (PVD) finish, which resists discoloration.

Choose from decorative and energy efficient glass options. You can get grilles-between-the-glass (GBGs), which mimic the look of multiple glass panes while being easy to clean and more energy efficient.
