Exterior French Doors – When Choosing These, What Do You Need to Know?

Whether you’re planning to build your new dream home, or planning for a remodel of your space, the entry to your patio or backyard area is an important feature to address. When you are having a party, you will want your guests to be able to move between inside and outside spaces with ease. And when it’s just you there, you’ll want to enjoy the beauty of your spaces too. If you are installing exterior French doors, you should know they will add some amazing appeal and value to your home. These doors are generally very stylish and attractive to the eye.

They also make the home look a bit more classic so if you plan to ever sell your home, that is a plus for sure. These doors certainly add elegance to your home. However, since there isn’t just one type of the exterior French doors, when choosing them there are some things you might need to know and think about. Some of the considerations include different materials, styles, and the way the doors open.

  • Materials to Use
  • Glass as an Option
  • Direction of Door Opening

With these considerations below is information to help make your decision.

What Materials Should You Use?

When you are choosing exterior French doors, you will certainly need to consider what type of materials you will want. There are various choices to consider. Many people will choose wood because it is calm and relaxing. It is much more attractive than some of the other options as well. The one thing to note with the wood options is they are more prone to warping than some other materials but with a good sealer on them in the beginning, and a little regular maintenance, they will continue to look beautiful for years to come. Plus, because wood accepts paint so well, you can change up how the doors look from time to time, and even have a different color on the inside than on the outside.

However, exterior French doors can also be manufactured in aluminum. This is a great choice as well because they are very affordable, light weight, and an eco-friendly material.. You could also choose steel which is energy-efficient, sturdy, and will last almost forever. Vinyl or fiberglass is another great choice because it isn’t affected by the rain hence no possibility of rotting or rust. Consider the climate where your home is located to help make the decision.

Is Glass an Option?

Now, the next thing to consider with external French doors, is whether glass is an option. The main purpose of using glass exterior French doors is so you can look outside from inside your home. Glass is somewhat insulated so there will be some noise-reduction and some natural light can come into your home as well. Having clear glass panels in your door is an elegant touch that will bring comments from your visitors and extra love from your pets. Pets love to lay in the sun and enjoy the warmth, so the glass allows them to find the right spot and you’ll know where they always are.

However, since some of these doors are frosted, you won’t need to worry about privacy issues and others seeing inside of your home. The frosting can be all of the pane, or you might even want to have a design etched into a portion of it based on the desired look you want. With glass doors, you can choose the double-paned doors. If you are choosing glass as an option for these doors, choose the impact-resistant, tempered glass. If you live in an area where storms occur with regularity using impact-resistant glass could also lower your insurance costs.

What Direction Should the Door Open?

When picking out exterior French doors, you should also consider which direction you would like the door to open. Some people think it doesn’t matter and that is fine for them. However, you need to think about where it will be placed. If there isn’t enough space in your home for them to be opened inward, they will need to go outward. Opening outward onto the patio and your back yard is a wonderful way to bring guests out to the patio and save you space inside the home. These are important in storm areas because the hinges help strengthen against strong wind gusts that might blow the doors inward. However, if they are opening outward, you will also need to consider whether they will be hitting the overhang on your home.

The inward opening doors are more typical and seem to bring the outside in. This is a common choice for homeowners and as their name implies, can bring about the French country aesthetic which lightens the feel of your home. They also can fold back against the wall and move out of your way when you’re moving furniture, or party guests, inside and out.

However, they can be tricky because you constantly have to make sure that everything is level, if you want a professionally installed appearance. On that note, if you do get that appearance, French doors obviously can really improve the look of a room. In addition, they can really help bring in natural light to your home, particularly for a room that’s dark and drab. This helps a lot if you want to add more light and the atmosphere of space, but still want to keep two spaces separated.

Upvc French Doors

If you are in the market for exterior doors that provide light and beauty to your home, you might want to consider installing French doors. Having the ability to open the space wide to bring in large furniture or letting the party flow freely between the inside and your patio is something that you must consider when doing an update. While French doors might not initially seem like the most durable option, there are options you can choose to make them safer and more resilient. For instance, you can choose to use double paned glass in your door which helps be more energy efficient. Another option you might consider is using a door made of uPVC. Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride (uPVC) is a great material for French doors because it is resilient, and it requires minimal maintenance. Also, uPVC will not warp like wood or get too hot like metal, which is beneficial to the longevity of the glass. Unlike other Polyvinyl products, it also doesn’t contain any BPA so is safe. No need to worry about the impact this product will make on your family or the environment and the purchase will last a long time. read more
