Are French doors sold in doubles?
French doors have two doors in a single frame, so the jury is out as to whether you see this as double or single. It means that when you open them, you will enjoy an almost unbroken view of your garden. That said, you can open one side of the door if preferred. But it’s quite okay (at least we think so) to refer to them as pairs.
How are patio and French doors different?
A French door has a singular frame with two inner doors that open inward or outward. Patio doors, on the other hand, slide on rollers along a vertical track which facilitates smooth and easy movement. It can comprise of multiple panels, depending on how much room is spare. Either of these doors is well-suited for introducing a room to a garden – although the French style provides a wider opening through which to exit or enter, make sure they don’t take up too much space in your property. Patio doors remain inside the frame and are perfect for smaller homes.
Do French doors swing in both directions?
Your doors can be designed to swing in or out – but not both. You might prefer the former option of the movement of your door would block a window or path or form some other obstruction. But also consider whether you have enough space inside to accommodate the required movement.
A French door that opens outward will give you more space internally. Thanks to the strong tension hinges fitted into our range, you won’t have to fret about your new doors getting blown shut in the wind.

How did the French door get its name?
You won’t be surprised to hear that its origins are found in France. But its design combines influences from other countries too – in particular, Greece and Italy. During the famed Renaissance era, new types of architecture were introduced which endeavoured to bring more light into homes.
One of the products of this was the French door, which became a popular choice for Parisians and in other regions of France. This style of door often led out on to an ornate balcony – and, after a short time, became renowned in other parts of the world too. Now you can see this fine classic design almost anywhere you go, although it’s now used most commonly to link homes to gardens.

Will I need planning consent to fit French doors?
Planning consent is not required, regardless of whether you’re upgrading yours using the same sized opening or increasing that aperture to accommodate a larger double glazed unit.
Note that this rule only applies when installing French doors to the rear of your home. You should also exercise due caution if you’re in a protected area or live in a listed building. Your local authority might impose additional restrictions.
For your reassurance, our doors are CERTASS certified, which means your installation will meet building regulation requirements in full (that’s one less thing to worry about).
Will new French doors add value to my home?
Enhancing your property with stylish new French doors will provide you with a wider opening. If and when you come to sell, your home will be more attractive to potential buyers, who will appreciate the practical value your doors add – while also appreciating the light let in by all that glass. It’s also a great way to show friends and family into your garden. Of course, the value of your home will only rise if you invest in a high-quality product made from the very best materials.
