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.
This could be one of the most ignored reasons for installing exterior glass doors. With the help of glass, it's very easy for you to peak into the growing lush gardens in your yard. At night, you don't have to go outside just to observe the starry skies or the full moon. Nothing beats waking up in the morning and seeing how gorgeous the day is by simply being near your patio doors.
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.
Not only does the amount of glass in the door make it look gorgeous, but it also makes it look more friendly and inviting. Likewise, the amount of glass can allow in a wonderful amount of light. This can be beneficial in many ways, from helping your home to have a more open feel to cutting down on your need for interior lighting. Natural light can help you save money on energy, and that's always a good thing. If you like, you can always enhance your French doors further by adding sidelites and transoms. This will let in even more light and make your French doors even more ornate than before. These doors are worth their weight in gold when handled properly and when you obtain them from a company that is well-versed in doors - making them and providing them. Consider this door type the next time you are looking for a house or want to make some sweeping changes for the better in your current home.
