Unlike sliding doors, French doors swing on a hinge and open very wide. You need to measure the radius of the swing and make sure that there are no furnishings for the area within the door’s swing path. You should also check the jamb depth of the opening and make sure that the door you plan to buy fits inside that depth. Fortunately, we can perform all of these measurements for you when you choose to install one of ou replacement patio doors.
Method of Operation
Many French patio doors are offered in both in-swing and out-swing fittings. These fittings change how much space the door needs to open and close. Out-swing French patio doors tend to be more convenient to plan around, since you can just clear your outdoor living space of any obstructions. As the top choice for replacement windows and patio doors in our area, however, we offer a third method of operation. We offer sliding French patio doors. This option is perfect for homeowners who want to save space.
