Budget

Setting a budget before browsing the selection of external french doors saves time and narrows the door selection so choosing the model best 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’s numerous factors that influence the price, including the door material, size, brand, and style.

Comparisons 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, impressionable appearance to the home.

Measurements

Measuring the opening where your new french doors are being placed is important when making the purchase. Without accurate measurements, the doors may not fit into the opening or function properly, resulting in headache and unnecessary repair and expense. Basic measuring skills and a high-quality tape are all that you’ll need to record measurements for your french doors.

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  net frame dimension and rough opening of the door.

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. 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.
