French doors have evolved considerably over the years, not only in terms of the materials from which they are manufactured wood, fiberglass, vinyl, aluminum but in the energy efficiency of the glazing and construction standards. They are popular as both interior and exterior doors, can be outfitted with full length glass panels or any number of divided light configurations, and come in a wide range of makes and models to suit any house style.
That low cost does not come without its fair share of maintenance. Painting and prepping are both important steps in maintaining a wooden French door. Additionally, the patina of the wood can peel or fade if it is an exterior product that faces the sun. It can also be damaged by moisture.
