A Basic Guide to French Patio Doors

French doors are generally considered a great addition to any home. They also come in a variety of styles, so they can fit a range of architectural styles and home designs.

In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, a local provider of first-rate window replacement service, discusses the advantages of having a French door. We also share some tips on using this door in your interior and exterior.

Benefits of French Doors

Here are some of the most common reasons why homeowners choose to install French doors:

1. They provide a seamless visual connection between the interior and exterior or between adjoining rooms.

2. They allow a large amount of natural light into your home.

3. They help create an illusion of space, making small rooms seem bigger.

Ask your chosen window company regarding the features that you can add to your French door. For instance, if you’re concerned about the amount of heat that can transfer from the outside to your interior, you might want to ensure the door is adequately energy-efficient.

Where to Use French Doors

Interestingly, French doors can look great both indoors and outdoors. When used as an exterior door, a French door can function as an opening onto your patio, balcony or garden. And when it’s used as an interior door, it can serve as a divider between linked rooms or as shower surrounds in your bathroom.

Things to Consider

These are some of the things you should check before purchasing a French door:

1. Reliable weatherstripping

2.Double-paned or low-E glass

3. In-swing or out-swing (depends on the space you have)

4. Door size

5. Door lock system

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
