A traditional French patio door, paired with the right replacement windows, can give your home an amazing curb appeal. Unfortunately, they are not the best way to save space if you have a foyer with a limited floor area. Conversely, sliding doors offer great space-saving solutions but might not have the same impact as a beautiful French door.
Thankfully, you can have the beauty of a French door and the advantages of a sliding door by combining them into one style. Sliding French patio doors from Renewal by Andersen® are the perfect middle-ground solution for homeowners looking for a patio door replacement. Here are some of their benefits according to our experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Portland.
Perfect For Any Style of Home
Whether you have a classic traditional Colonial or modern contemporary home, French sliding patio doors can enhance your living space. The interior and exterior of these doors come in a wide variety of colors and finishes, including choices such as pre-finished white or stainable wood finishes—maple, oak and pine.
Energy Efficient and Increased Daylighting
The expanded glass area of a French slider allows for better daylighting solutions as well. This can help make your living space look and feel bigger, while also offering a number of health benefits to you and your family. The dual-glazed High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass options can also filter solar heat and UV rays without sacrificing the amount of visible light it allows.
Traditional French door installation can be incompatible for small or packed spaces as they swing around a hinge, needing plenty of floor space for clearance. However, French sliding doors are extremely efficient as they slide open on durable track rollers just like regular sliding patio doors. They are the best solution for homes who want the benefits of both styles of patio doors minus their known limitations.
