There are two general categories of patio doors: sliding doors and French doors. If your home has a more traditional or classic aesthetic, French doors can help enhance the beauty of your property, lending architectural integrity.
Read on as V. Nanfito Roofing & Siding, Inc., your local general contractor, discusses the key features of French patio doors.
Swing Out Operation
Unlike sliding doors, which slide open along a track, French patio doors swing open on hinges. This provides a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor living spaces and also offers excellent ventilation.
French patio doors feature decorative glass panes and elegant detail in the design. This makes them an excellent choice for turn-of-the-century homes with equally classic aesthetics, such as American Craftsman, Dutch Colonial and Ranch-style houses. Installing French patio doors is a
project that can enhance your home in many ways.
French patio doors tend to be lower maintenance than sliding doors. Dirt and debris can easily find their way into the tracks of sliding doors, making the doors difficult to operate. French patio door’s hinges are easier to access for cleaning, since all you need to do is open the doors.
