The French patio is the quintessential design for patio doors. It’s easily the most recognizable style and is a staple of classic and contemporary homes that need touch of timeless appeal.
In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Long Island lists the four benefits of a French patio door.
1. More Daylight
French doors are essentially windows that allow more light into your home than the typical patio door. This is all thanks to their large glass panes, designed to let in more of your exterior views. The extra sunlight is just an added bonus.
There is such a thing as too much light, though, and excessive UV light can be a health hazard. That’s why we use High-Performance™ Low-E4® Glass for our French doors. They block 84% of harmful UV light from the sun, so you can illuminate your home without worry.
2. Durable Doors
Most homeowners think that French doors aren’t as durable due to their large glass area. This is far from the truth as the durability of the door depends on the material used in its construction. That’s why at Renewal by Andersen of Long Island, we use the highest quality materials when we manufacture your new patio door. Your new hardware will be as secure as it is beautiful.
3. Wide-Swinging Doors
French doors swing wide as they open, allowing easier access to your outdoors from your interior space. The fact that they swing open means that your new patio door is essentially extending your living space outside.
4. Added Value
Finally, installing a French door will increase the value of your home due to its combination of utility and beauty. The door itself is attractive and can easily become the focal point of your exteriors, but the deal-sealer is its usefulness in extending your interior space to the outside.
