What You Need to Know About Upgrading to a French Patio Door

Sometimes, homeowners assume that the term patio door only indicates a glass sliding door. It’s also a common misconception that a French patio door only means two side-by-side swinging panels when this is actually a garden door model in a French style. In fact, French patio doors can be made in single and sliding models as well.

Any professional windows company understands that a patio door refers to all styles that open to yard space. This includes French, garden, atrium, gliding, sliding, folding and accordion. But in this post, we’ll talk about how you can replace your sliding patio doors for French doors.

What You Should Know About a French Door

A typical French door is made mostly of glass. It gets its name from how its grids hold multiple panes. You’ll recognize their features easily as they’re around 6 to 10 feet in height with a width of 3 to 8 feet. They have two side-by-side panels that swing with hinges on the side, with one panel having a lock and handle while the other having a latch at its base.

You might be looking into getting a French door because your current sliding patio door is starting to show its age. It could also be that you’re starting to have difficulty operating your patio door despite your best efforts to have it repaired and maintained. As a professional in replacement windows and doors, we’d usually advise on getting new patio doors to save yourself the trouble.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
