Realtors often use the term curb appeal when they refer to a home. Adding French doors can definitely increase the curb appeal of your home. When they are used as exterior French doors they can open up onto a patio or garden. This makes the transition from outdoors to indoors nearly seamless. They let you see the beauty of your outdoor environment while you're still inside. While these doors are not inexpensive, they are not extremely expensive either, and the value that they add to your home can be easily recovered should you decide to sell your home.
Just don't forget to add wood into the French exterior doors. They will serve as frames or holders of your glass. You also have a lot of options for your glass. You can check out designs available in the World Wide Web or ask opinions or suggestions from contractors to know the most ideal glass to use in your home. Are you struggling with the increasing energy costs you have to pay every month? Then perhaps it's time to think about getting exterior French doors. Since you can incorporate glass into your door, you can invite enough sunlight into your living room, kitchen, or even your patio. You can also usher natural light into different parts of your home. Thus, you're not tempted to switch on the artificial lights at a much earlier time
Once you have the hinges taken care of, you may want to focus on the glass of your French doors. Because glass can get broken easily to enable the burglar to gain entry into a home, you may want to enhance the security of these doors by replacing the original glass panes with some laminated glass instead. This comprises of at least two pieces of glass which have been bonded together using a laminate sheet placed between them. As such, even if your French doors are shattered, the glass will be able to hold together just as a car windshield does. Another great tip for reinforcing the glass in your French doors would be to apply a plastic film to the inside of the panes.
Exterior French doors are available in a variety of styles but mainly feature decorative or carved wood edges with stained or glazed glass. These doors are also normally available with double-paned glass which provides for better insulation. Below is a look at the various types of popular choices for exterior French doors you can choose for your home.
