Jeld-Wen Wood and Clad-Wood Windows and Patio Doors
The Folding Door Store is the answer to the growing need for a one-stop shop for anything and everything about sliding and folding doors. However, it is not only folding doors that we specialize in because windows are equally important as well. Of course we don’t design and build the products that we provide to our clients but we do have working relationships with some of the world’s leading manufacturers of both door and window solutions that are not only aesthetically pleasing and elegant but are also made of the highest quality raw materials for optimum durability, strength, and thermal efficiency. One of our most revered partners in the industry is Jeld-Wen Windows and Doors, a company that has grown from the 1960s Iowa to being the employer of more than 20,000 people all over the world and with a formidable presence in not less than 20 countries including the United States. Such is the history of Jeld-Wen that The Folding Door Store is proud to be a partner of this American icon.
When Richard Wendt founded the company in 1960 together with Larry Wetter, Bill Taylor, Gerry Wickersham, and John Biehn, they leveraged on their technical know-how passed down by their previous generations in creating and producing highly reliable and high quality products. Within a couple of years, with just 15 employees, Jeld-Wen saw unusual success that it was able to expand its operations by acquiring more advanced manufacturing facilities. The company never skimped on their reliance only on high quality raw materials for all of their products – a credo that runs up to this very day. In fact, this is the same ingredient that the company has been adhering to through all the years that it survived economic downturns.
Jeld-Wen Windows and Patio Doors
The company provides three fundamental types of patio doors, including
- Folding Doors – Provides the best approach to carefree living as the doors open up to wide open spaces obscuring the thin line between an interior space and an exterior landscape. In this type of door, Jeld-Wen is able to provide homeowners superb access to their immediate surroundings be it a gazebo, a swimming pool, a backyard, a garden, or even an orchard.
- Sliding Doors – Defined by a stationary panel and another one that slides horizontally on the door tracks.
- Swinging Doors – Has plenty of design options in different configurations including single, double, or even French patio doors. Depending on the glass used, these types of doors can be perfect for absolute privacy or ideal for unobstructed view of the outside environment.
The company doesn’t only offer superb doors but windows as well.

- Bay windows – Allows for extended view of the outside.
- Bow windows – Similar to bay windows but have a much gentler curve or angle of multiple windows.
