First, What are French Doors?

First popularized in France as a window style, French doors are usually a pair, lightly constructed, with glass panes stretching the length of the doors.  


Exterior French doors can make an entryway look elegant, open, and classy. The tall glass panes allow in natural sunlight to bathe your foyer. While French doors were not historically energy-efficient, modern exterior French doors are. A contemporary insulated design, dual pane glass, and the right material all make these doors more energy efficient, while also providing a beautiful talking point for your home.
