Fiberglass, the most popular French door design, brings its own share of advantages to the table. Fiberglass doors are very strong, durable and built to withstand plenty of wear and tear. Fiberglass is the perfect option for exterior French doors. Unlike French wood doors, they do not require routine polishing or protection. They can be painted a variety of colors to meet specific design requirements.
Sliding doors move easily because of the rollers installed on either side of the door. However, if the door gets stuck and must be pushed against to move, it is likely the rollers have an obstruction or are failing because of wear. Dirty rollers can have various items in them leaves, sticks, dirt which obstructs door movement. They will need to be cleaned to be able to move again without getting stuck on the track or against one another. If they have cracks or bends, homeowners will need new rollers. This is especially true for sliding doors with metal rollers, which rust over time.
