Add Style to Your Home with External French Doors

External French doors add a touch of elegance to the entryway that other door styles fail to provide. There are hundreds of ideas to personalize the door, ensuring your home is intriguing, unique, and most importantly, creates a personal impression exciting enough to turn heads. Why select French doors for your home? The real question is why not! French doors offer:

  • Weatherproof design that doesn't succumb to rain, moisture, and other types of damage
  • Long-lasting durability of up to 20-years when well-maintained
  • Variety of door materials in a broad range of price points

Elegant finishes, hardware additions, side glass, and other options are among the ways to capture the true ambiance of your new door. The French-style door is not only the perfect entryway door, but perfect for patios, too. While you may have seen double entryway doors such as the French doors one of which generally locks into place, they will often have one working door handleset and one that is just there for looks so that symmetry continues. The same is available for the patio setting of French doors where they are most commonly used in tandem to open both sides and seemingly bring the outside indoors.

Budget

Setting a budget before browsing the selection of external French doors saves time and narrows the door selection so choosing the best model for your home is easier. Budgeting before browsing also helps you avoid spending more for the door than you can afford to spend. Although the French style door is oftentimes costlier than other door styles, there are numerous factors that influence the price, including the door material, size, brand, and style not to mention there are two doors in that price.

Comparisons can always save money and help you get the best door at the lowest price. Expect to spend $1,255 - $2,800 for a French door, with the above factors in mind. Most homeowners don’t mind spending a few extra dollars for this door since it adds such a dramatic appearance to the home. When you do the comparison, check to see the installation cost of a single threshold door and frame to see how different it is than a French door. Then consider how much you’d pay to move furniture through a single door or bring in a bunch of materials while your valuable time could be freed up so much quicker by opening both sides of the French door. Is it worth it?

Measurements

Measuring the opening where your new French doors are being placed is important before ever making the purchase. Without accurate measurements, the doors may not fit into the opening or function properly, resulting in more headaches and unnecessary repair and expense. Basic measuring skills and a high-quality tape measure are all that you’ll need to record measurements for your French doors. Very often you’ll find that you can install a standard sized door which will always bring the cost down rather than having to go with a custom sized door.

It’s a good idea to measure the openings twice to ensure accurate numbers are recorded. You might even ask a second person to measure the opening just to be on the safe side. When measuring the opening for the doors, measure the width and the length of the door, as well as the frame dimensions and rough opening of the door. Don’t forget to check for the depth or thickness of your current door and review their energy efficiency too. Having all these measurements available when you go online to review the sizes and prices will help you be able to choose the perfect door for your home.

French Doors Materials

Although French doors are constructed from a variety of materials, wood is the most commonly used of them all and the style preferred by most homeowners. While wood doors require more maintenance than French doors made from other material such as metal or fiberglass, they provide a warm feeling unparalleled by the others. The wood French doors are extremely durable, easy-to customize, and provide amazing appeal and style that enhance the look of your home. They’re not the cheapest of materials, but nonetheless offer great pricing in addition to the numerous benefits.

Pre-finished and unfinished doors are both available. Pre-finished doors are those that have already been painted, finished, and otherwise decorated and ready to hang, while the unfinished styles leave an artistry palette that lets you put your creativity to work. Although called unfinished, most have minimal additions, such as primer to protect the wood which is required to help seal it against rotting. Additionally, pre-finished doors will sometimes come with the hardware already installed which can save a lot of time. This option prevents you from running around looking at pricing and finishes then purchasing it all only to come home and spend more time installing all.

Sliding French Doors

Sliding French Doors

Sliding French doors reflect the style of traditional French doors with the convenience of a slider. The design is ideal for small homes as they take less room to operate and won’t intrude into your interior or outdoor spaces. Generally, sliding French doors feature two sections, each with a large pane of glass as part of the construction. One or both of the door sections will slide along a track, allowing you to open and close the door with ease. Typically, just one of the panes functions as a door while the other is locked in place, though some do offer the ability to slide either door open, giving you a bit of additional flexibility. read more
