It is important to allow for enough space for the pockets and special construction that the exterior pocket French doors require on either wall. This will help to ensure that the doors are properly sealed and protected from the elements. Bi-Fold and Multi-Fold Exterior French doors: These are accordion style doors with door panels which are hinged together and set onto a sliding track, which enables them to fold and slide to the side. Bi-fold and multi-fold exterior French doors are very attractive and stylish to have in any home. Bi-fold doors comprise of two panels which fold twice onto itself, while the multi-fold doors consist of smaller panels which fold three to four times onto themselves.
Most people might have seen traditional French doors which are a bit different from the models being used in today's market. Traditional doors are put together by small pieces of glass and not by using a large crystal glass as is usually the case in today's age. These doors are known to come in different styles but the most popular model is the double pane glass door with different types of decorations added. As we can see now in days French doors can be ordered to personal preference and can have a range of materials such as wood, aluminum, vinyl, and more.
Exterior French doors contain the usual flair and style that are usually associated with the French. As you know, France is considered to be one of the centers for culture and the arts. Just think about the Louvre Museum. French doors are definitely beautiful in a lot of ways. For one, it's very huge, which is already enough to capture the attention of anyone who wants to visit your home. Second, it demands one of the finest woods in town for frames. Thus, you are talking about wood that is very smooth to touch and can last the test of time. You can imagine oak, cherry, or walnut being incorporated into your own house.
To further enhance the security provided by your French doors, you may fit some security door locks as well. You will find that in most cases, the locks that come with these doors are insufficient in keeping out burglars. It is recommended that you install a deadbolt that's horizontal and at least one inch in length. You may want to go for a double deadbolt lock which is a little more secure than the single deadbolts.
