French patio doors, or otherwise known as hinged patio doors, are a great addition to any home. They give a classic feel to any space while looking elegant and functional. From the outside in, french patio doors allow for natural light as well as a patio view that could add that little extra pop that makes any space look radiant.
Security is on everyones mind when installing a fiberglass French door. Being able to see inside the home, when someone is home or not, can make many feel vulnerable. If that is a worry, heavy duty framing and glass should be considered.
When most people choose French doors, they usually pick fiberglass doors. Fiberglass gives the door an architectural appeal as well as lets necessary sunlight in when you wish. The average minimum cost of fiberglass French doors is $600 and the average max is $1,700. Note that the higher costs of French doors are usually associated with architectural moldings added to the assembly later on.
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.
