Some Things You Need to Know About French Doors

Some History

French doors became popular in the 17th Century, during the French Renaissance period. Commonly installed on balconies, French doors provided a way for as much light and air to enter a home as possible, in as stylish a manner as that period could command. To this day, French doors serve as a great interior as well as exterior design focal point for homes in almost any architectural style.

Best Materials

When it comes to doors and windows, your choice of material is critical. The right products can improve your home’s energy efficiency and weather protection, while the wrong ones can invite a host of problems into your home. With this in mind, Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas and Fort Worth carries a selection of  French doors that are all built with Low-E4® glass and Fibrex® frames, guaranteed to serve your home well for decades. 

Expected Benefits

Installing French doors will not only increase your home’s curb appeal but can help you create a more energy-efficient home too. French doors are designed to allow more natural light into a home, thereby reducing your reliance on artificial light sources and minimizing your energy consumption. You can expect better ventilation at home too as you can simply open French doors to improve air circulation on particularly humid days.
