What You Need to Know About French Doors

As if the world could not get over its obsession with French Vogue, doors with the same name are still one of the most preferred setups when it comes to windows for the home. It’s the lingering connotation of the word “French” that connotes class. But what are they, really?

What You Need to Know About French Doors

Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta summarizes what French doors are and why you need them.

A French Door in a Nutshell

Basically, it’s a window that runs from the top to the bottom of a wall (which is why it’s technically a door). They are usually placed where one might enjoy a view of a garden or terrace. Our French doors have wide, expansive glass areas, which can give you a great view of the outdoors.

They Make Your Home Look Bigger

French patio doors can function as windows and entry into your home. This way, the entrance is bigger and there’s a welcoming tone to your house. You can always get privacy by installing curtains or other window treatments.

They’re Just As Secure As Normal Entry Doors

You can customize your door system with our Andersen-designed patio door locks. This may take the form of a unique reach-out locking system that pulls the door into the jamb and latches securely when closed. You may also couple this with an auxiliary foot lock for additional protection.

They Are Energy-Efficient

While you may think that the glass would let in too much sun, our patio doors, including our French and sliding patio doors, all feature Low-E glass that filters the sunlight. Coming in three grades, these glass packages are the answer to your insulation woes.
