A Quick Homeowner’s Guide to French Patio Doors

French patio doors come in a wide range of styles, colors and finishes. Equipped with modern technology, these doors are more energy-efficient, wind-resistant and secure. They don’t only seamlessly connect your indoor and outdoor spaces, but also bring more light and beauty into your home.



French patio doors allow generous amounts of natural light into your interior, making it look more spacious. They can still make a room brighter even if the weather is bad. When opened, they can let in air, increasing ventilation and helping cool down your home during summer. On the other hand, when closed in winter, the glass can allow heat indoors.

Things to Consider

You’ll need to make sure your new French doors have enough space to fully open, whether they swing in or out. Consider sliding doors to save some space. Talk to your contractor about the placement of sightlines for outdoor views, easy access and sun and wind exposure.

When choosing a glass type, consider your needs and location. Textured or frosted glass will provide you more privacy while impact-resistant panes are great for areas prone to hurricanes. These doors usually come with warranties that last for up to 20 years, and some can be passed on to the next owner of the house.
