Figuring Out French Doors with Screens

French doors in general are a popular choice for homeowners for both exterior and interior doors. They can give your home a dose of drama or style that can improve your home’s inside décor or add curb appeal to the outside.

Adding French doors with screens can make these already versatile doors even more useful. A wide variety of screen types is available for French doors, including:

  • retractable screens
  • sliding screens
  • magnetic screens

Installing French doors with screens is not much trickier than installing a standard door with a screen. Typically, French doors with screens simply have two screen panels installed. With retractable screens, for example, you would mount screens on each side of the door frame.

Screen Test

Screen mesh comes in a much wider variety of choices than you might be expecting. The mesh itself can come in a host of colors that will fit or complement any doors. Some manufacturers even offer custom matching if you want a completely seamless look. In addition, the mesh itself can be made or specially treated to fit even more specific needs.

For instance, if you would love the convenience of seasonal air flow but not the glare of the sun, you can buy mesh that’s been treated to reduce the amount of heat and glare that can get through. Another example of specialty mesh is mesh that’s been made to provide a clearer view.

Weathering the Weather

As French doors have glass panels, you will experience heat loss to some extent. To minimize this, if you live in a climate that can get cold, opt for double-glazed glass panels. Whatever your climate, it’s a good idea to look for doors with weather-stripping (or install it yourself) and/or doors that are made to be as energy efficient as possible.

This includes doors made to cut down on drafts by featuring interlocking parts. You might also want to look for doors that are made to be climate-neutral. That means that they’ll keep working as they should even in weather conditions that would make a postal worker hesitate.

Space to Move

Because French doors don’t require a track to move like sliding doors, they can be easier for people with limited mobility, because there is a lower threshold (and no track to clear). They do require more space inside and out, though, because the doors need room themselves to open and close. Typically with a French door, however, one door usually stays locked.

Both can usually be opened if you’d like more space, like if you’re moving something large or if you’d just like more space for traffic flow. Because screens come in different types, like retractable screens, you’re sure to find a type that will fit the way you use your French doors. If you’re starting from scratch, buying French doors with screens, that will obviously make the process easier.
