What Makes French Doors an Excellent Addition to Your Home?

French patio doors can improve the overall look and feel of your home in countless ways. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Austin discusses what makes them an excellent addition to any home.

They Are Enchanting 

Unlike contemporary patio doors, the traditional design of French patio replacement door systems is timeless. Since they were first introduced in Europe centuries ago, their wide-board stile and rail construction remains fashionable to this day. They might not offer as much glass area as modern sliding doors, but they capture the charm of most Old-World architectural styles.

Whether they frame a scenic view or not, they can enhance the appearance of your home on their own. They evoke the classic craftsmanship of yesteryear, lending a sense of charm to your home.

They Elevate Home Security

Modern iterations of sliding patio doors are far more impregnable than their predecessors were, but hinged French doors have always been a paragon of security. At Renewal by Andersen of Austin, our swinging doors have a sophisticated, five-point locking mechanism. In addition to the deadbolt, one of our door panels pulls the other snugly while the other hooks itself into the threshold and header. They also come with an exterior keyed lock.

They Bring a High ROI

The appeal of French patio doors remains as strong as ever in the 21st Century. It’s still hard to find a homeowner that doesn’t like the beauty and functionality of French door systems. Equipped with advanced glazing, weather stripping and cladding, modern versions are built to serve the needs of today’s homes.

If you decide to put your home on the market down the road, French doors can be a top selling point. You can recoup most of your cost at resale. With our transferable warranties, our doors can give you negotiating leverage.
