Renewal by Andersen® of Eastern NY discusses some facts about French doors:

Benefits of French Doors

One of the main purposes of French doors is to connect your home to the outdoors. You can expand your living room area to your patio or garden, giving you the chance to enjoy the outdoors while indoors. They also let more sunlight in your home, making it warmer and welcoming to guests.

We can install a French patio door in Woodstock, NY that can give you even more. They come with insulated glass that prevents heat buildup in your home. This will keep you from relying too much on your HVAC units. Our glass also reduces water spots when exposed to sunlight.

Types of French Doors

French doors come in an array of styles and materials. They come in single pane to 10-light styles, which refers to 2 panes and 5 panes. Their frames can be made of wood, steel, aluminum, and/or fiberglass. While most French doors are hinged, there are also sliding, folding, and pivot models.

Tips for Installing or Designing French Doors

Before you decide to install French doors, first find out how much space they will require and plan based on the configuration of your home. You should also consider glass options such as those that allow more sunlight in your home or glass that protects your furniture from UV rays. In addition, the exterior of your French doors should have quality weather stripping to prevent draft from entering your home. You should also consider hardware for added security.
