Benefits of French Doors in your Maryland Home

French doors can let more light into your home, create a near-seamless transition from indoors to outdoors, and transform the look and feel of any room. Some other benefits of French doors include that they are:

  • Easy to clean and maintain – Our vinyl French doors wipe clean with simple household cleaning products. Our wood French doors require very little maintenance to retain their natural beauty, and they can be stained or painted to match your home.
  • Long-lasting – Our vinyl French doors are incredibly durable. They will not crack, warp, or rot. As an added benefit, they also decrease drafts and noise. A properly maintained wood French door will provide many years of beauty and performance.
  • Energy-efficient – Like all of the doors we make and install, our French doors are made to help your home maintain heat in the winter and keep it cool in the summer.

French Doors FAQs

How do French doors work?

French doors work virtually the same as other hinged doors: Depending on your preference and the instructions you provide to your design team, the doors will open either outwards or inwards. The doors typically use a bolt lock and feature double-glazed glass to bolster security and energy efficiency.

How long do French doors last?

This largely depends on how well you maintain the doors, as well as what kind of warranty you get through the door manufacturer. Warranties can cover anywhere from two years to 20 years, and some may even be transferrable to the next homeowner. Review the terms of your warranty to understand how long your French doors can be expected to last.

Are French doors drafty?

When properly installed and sealed, French doors are no more drafty than any other entry door. If your French door installation project resulted in unwanted drafts in your home, be sure to reach out to a member of our team so we can help remedy the issue.

How do I weatherproof my French doors?

If your doors have been installed and sealed properly, you likely won’t need additional weatherproofing. However, if you require additional weatherproofing for your French door, you’ll need to ensure the gaps between the door and your opening are properly sealed. To check the seals, simply remove the door trimming and place a piece of paper under the door. Close the door and pull the paper out slowly to reveal the amount of debris you’re able to see on the sheet. Depending on how much debris is left on the paper, you’ll likely need to use caulk to seal any gaps. If the gaps are too large, caulking may not be an option. Instead, you may need to install weather stripping or consult with your Potomac View Energy team member to understand your options.

Can French doors have screens?

Yes! Due to the way French doors operate, homeowners will simply need to install hinged door screens on either side to allow for increased privacy, bug protection, and shade. Consult with your Potomac View Energy team member to understand what screen options may be available for your French door installation project.

Customer Testimonial

“The entire company from the owner down to the crew who did the installation were top notch. The crew discovered a lot of rotten wood in the frame work, which they replaced without issue. The enlarged window turned out great, the sliders work great, and all of the windows and exterior framing/wrapping/sealing were done perfectly. I am extremely happy with the work that was done and had a great experience during the whole process. I would recommend Potomac View Energy to anyone looking to have windows or doors replaced.”
