I would like a full lite, simple, well-insulated door without embellishment for my future deck. Swinging (not sliding), single (as opposed to double patio door), and the width would be below standard - about 30".
Does anyone know of a place where I can shop for one? I found some online stores - one that either sell suspiciously inexpensive ones (around $200) or ones that are so expensive, they don't post prices. It would be nice if I could view them in person or if someone could recommend a trusted brand.
We used Hellas Glass which are coop also uses for their rentals. Not sure they're the best priced but they were easy to deal with and we were happy with their work.

If you want the kind of door in the picture, i.e. not full glass but with ~6 inches of wood surround, we ordered ours from Home Depot - the millwork people there knew their stuff, we got a good price, and despite being custom-constructed, we got it in about 3 weeks. Price varies based on configuration, but IIR ours was about $600. (One interesting note: we really wanted a 3/4 glass door, not a fill glass, but the 3/4 glass was more than triple the price - go figure.)

Simpson Door. Dykes Lumber in Brooklyn has a catalogue or you can shop online. You can buy them pre-hung, or just the door unit, which can be trimmed for non-standard sizes.
