If you decide you want to replace your front door, then you need to get up to speed on the different material options. It is a good idea to do your research ahead of time and make sure you are fully informed before making a final decision. Whether you custom design your door or select one from a manufacturer, time, money and material are all aspects to consider in the buying process.
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.
The most unique part about French doors is their glass paneling. There are infinite examples as far as window arrangements, whether they be multiple panes, small windows, large windows, glazed, textured or tinted.
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.
