French doors have been around for centuries. Since the 17th century to be exact. The beauty of their design was certainly the divided light glass panels that provided maximum daylight to interior rooms something that would forever become their trademark. But being essentially long narrow windows paired together and hinged on opposite sides, the design also afforded another remarkable feature, no center support. As such, the windows doors could be opened out or in to provide full width access to an exterior balcony or patio. A beautiful thing indeed.
Fiberglass entry doors are very airtight and energy efficient. Fiberglass doors often come insulated, which provides an additional energy saving advantage over wood doors. They offer up to five times the insulating ability of wooden doors.
