If you spend a lot of time out on your deck or patio, exterior French patio doors can be the most used door in your entire house. Especially if you entertain or grill out a lot, you could go in and out your patio door multiple times in a short time frame.

You need an exterior patio door that matches your home’s style and functions well, too. Before you choosing from available exterior French patio doors, here are a few shopping tips to take into consideration. These three tips will help make sure you get the right door made from the right material and with the right glass for your door.

Choose a type of patio door

Exterior patio doors come in a few types: sliding doors, swinging or French patio doors, and folding patio doors. The type you choose will depend on the size of your opening, how much interior space you have, and the look you’re going for. Sliding patio doors may be the most popular type because of their relatively low cost, how much light they let in, and that they take up no extra space inside your home. On the other hand, exterior French patio doors offer a traditional style that’s timeless. Finally, folding patio doors are becoming popular and usually work well when you have a very large door opening to fill.

What material to choose?

Exterior French patio doors come in a variety of materials. The big differences between materials are cost, durability, and maintenance. Depending on which material you choose for your patio doors, you can get the right look for the right price to meet your budget. Choose from wood, fiberglass, or steel. Wood offers the best look, but it comes at a high price and more maintenance. You can choose fiberglass or vinyl that look very close to wood, and it usually fits any budget. Steel is strong and less expensive than wood, but also the noisiest. For maintenance purposes, wood is the most labor-intensive, with fiberglass and steel requiring less maintenance. However, if your exterior French patio doors face the sun all day, the UV rays can make fiberglass or vinyl doors brittle.

What glass should you choose?

Exterior French patio doors use glass to allow plenty of light to enter your home and give you a wonderful view of the outside. The glass does much more that; it also offers energy efficiency through double-paned layers of glass that act as insulation from the outside temperatures. Depending on where you live, you might choose tempered, impact-resistant glass to withstand high winds and hard impacts. If you want more privacy, you can choose opaque glass that lets light in your home, but keeps outsiders from seeing inside. Finally, you can also choose working blinds installed between the layers of glass in your exterior French patio doors to offer even more privacy.

Let the Sunshine in with Exterior French Patio Doors

Many homeowners enjoy their patio most of the year and consider it an important part of their home. Many door styles are available to serve as an entry and exit point to the patio. You can find a single hinged swinging door, or a sliding glass patio door, and several other but one of the most popular styles is the exterior French patio doors style.

This option is selected because it seems to bring the outside in and gives a large entryway when both sides are open. Additionally, the French patio doors bring a sense of elegance which other doors are just not able to achieve and give a feeling of luxury that elevates the value of your home while adding to its coziness.

Plus, there’s a plethora of colors, materials, and door styles that help you achieve the exact look that you are after. Furthermore, an array of hardware options is available to customize the door to your exact specifications. The framing of these doors can be made from many different materials such as aluminum, steel, wood, vinyl, or fiberglass. Featuring a full-length glass insert around a stylish frame enclosure, the French patio door lets the sunshine indoors, adding comfort and relaxation to any day.

Security

When you’re concerned about possible break-ins by burglars, you can now consider French doors. French patio doors have earned a rather dissatisfying reputation where security is concerned, and the older style doors certainly offered little in the way of security. Thankfully, today’s French patio doors are redesigned with safety and security in mind and many different locking systems and styles ensure you go to sleep, to work, or enjoy life at home without the worry of intruders or other mishaps ruining the day.

Enjoying the patio day in and day out is much easier with a durable locking system in place. Choose a door with a multi-point locking system for top-notch security. Add-on hardware locking options further enhance security and peace of mind when using the exterior French patio doors at your home. You can find doors that are perfect for any region of the country such as having them swing in as you’ll traditionally find them, but in areas prone to higher winds and strong weather forces, you can get them to swing out. This is important because the winds that batter your home push against it and if the hinges allow the door to swing out will be able to help guard against the doors blowing open into your home.

Energy-Efficiency

After security, energy-efficiency of the French patio door is the next most important quality of the new door. A tremendous amount of energy can escape through the full-length glass, causing discomfort for those inside the home, as well as higher energy bills. Choosing a French patio door with the Energy-Star label and other energy certifications may cost more money initially but will certainly pay for itself in time. Double or triple paned glass has air or a type of gas trapped between them helping to reduce the transfer of outside temperature into your home.

Do not assume that all patio doors offer the same energy-efficiency and make your selection carefully. Evaluate factors such as the UV coating, glass style, the R-value, and the U-factor. R-value is the rating of preventing heat conductivity, so the higher the number the better. The U-factor shows how well the glass conducts non-solar energy, so a lower number here is much better. Low E glass is the most durable of the available glass options, offering enhanced durability against environmental factors that can damage weak, unstable glass. This is the UV coating you may have heard about where a very thin layer is added that reflects the heat of the sun.

Costs

Aluminum and vinyl frames are the least expensive of the material options, though factors like the glass type, brand, locking system, and energy-efficiency all impact the costs of the new door. Exterior French patio doors are slightly more expensive than the traditional patio door, but the unsurpassed aesthetic appeal, durability, and ease-of-use justify the added price and you can expect even more pleasurable years of use with the product. Maintaining French patio doors is less costly and time consuming than sliding patio doors because they swing on hinges which, other than a coat of pain every so often, only need a little oil to keep them moving smoothly. Sliding patio doors have more mechanisms to go bad and keep in mind the struggle you experienced with a heavy sliding door on wheels that went bad or a track was damaged causing the door to move in a jerky motion, if it opened at all.

French style patio doors usually start at a cost of about $1,200 for a cheaper model, while some of the most popular and best styles may cost upwards $6,000. Comparing the available door styles after setting a budget is the easiest way to find the door style most flattering to your home that is also within your allotted budget.

Questions And Answers

What are French doors?

French doors are characterized by glass panels that usually run the full length of the door. Developed in the 17th century in France, French doors started appearing in colonial America in the 1700s.

What’s the difference between traditional patio doors and French patio doors?

Most patio doors are sliding doors, whereas French doors are swinging or hinged. They can open inward or outward, depending on your design preferences and space constraints. French patio doors use more space and have a wider door frame, and since they function differently, they have different hardware.

What sizes do they come in?

French doors are made to fit standard door openings and typically start at stock door heights of 6 feet, 8 inches; or 7 feet; and 8 feet. If you live in an older house or have an unusual door opening, custom sizes are offered by many manufacturers.

Do French patio doors come in different designs and styles?

French patio doors are available in many styles to match your particular house design. You can add different sized and shaped transoms to your doors. Sidelights on the sides of the doors are another popular feature, which add more visual interest and light. Incorporating grilles on flat plain glass panels are a popular traditional look.

What colors and materials are available?

French patio doors come in a variety of materials. Wood is popular for its natural beauty, but fiberglass, which can be painted or stained, is also an option. Aluminum and vinyl are additional choices and can be color customized to complement your house. If you’re worried about privacy or filtering light, you can add blinds, shades or textured glass. Screen-door systems are also available.

What other features are important when choosing French patio doors?

A three-point locking system is important for your security and safety. This system locks the door to the head jamb and sill, instead of just to each other. This also prevents doors from opening during storms and heavy winds.

How much do French patio doors cost?

They’re pricier than traditional patio doors. Figure on spending anywhere from $800 to $15,000+.

Can you install French patio doors yourself?

Doors that are pre-hung will take some of the challenges out of installation and provide a seamless result if you decide to install French patio doors yourself. However, while you’ll save money doing your own installation, if you’re not an accomplished do-it-yourselfer, having a professional install the doors is generally a much better option.

What are the advantages of French patio doors?

They allow lots of natural light, giving and airy and spacious feel … even on dreary rainy days. When French patio doors open to the outside of the house, it opens up a room and allows more usable space inside of the door. The ability to fully open both doors allows for greater ventilation throughout the house. Plus, they’re great for moving things in and out, and provide greater access when hosting large crowds.

Wooden Exterior Doors

The front entrance is usually the focal point of most home facades and the external door is its most important and prized asset. Dressed elegantly with a handsome knocker and nice lockset, the front door extends a warm welcome to your guests and neighbors while discouraging thieves and intruders and keeping out extreme weather. Front doors are the first thing we touch after arriving home and the last when we go outside. Therefore, it is understandable why most home owners still prefer doors made of wood. No other material matches its satisfying heft or warmth. Moreover, wooden doors offer a variety of design options that others do not. Wooden exterior doors can be easily custom crafted in almost any size or shape and include any type of molding profile, glazing option, panel configuration or carving that you can imagine. The chief complaint against wooden doors has been they can warp because they were often made of solid wood panels. Especially during the last 25 years, most doors manufacturers have started crafting the wooden entry doors using glued and engineered-wood cores which help overcome the tendency of solid wood to twist and warp. The handsome exterior layer acts as a thick protective veneer which enhances its durability. read more
