Fiberglass vs. Vinyl french doors/sliders?

osxaddictJune 25, 2007

Hi all..

We're at the early stages of a remodel and have looked at some doors we're going to need for a 10' wide opening to replace an older model Anderson unit (a bit smaller). Anyway, a local dealer indicated that they've now got these fiberglass doors in either a french slider or regular french door configuration.. They don't appear to have a lot of experience with them since they're a somewhat new product.. Does anyone have any fiberglass french door/slider and care to give some feedback on how you like them (and who is the mfg,etc)? These will be used as the rear entry/exit to the backyard... I'm torn over having french doors that open into our kitchen (that's the configuration the current ones do -- which takes up space when open) vs sliders, but that's for another decision. MTIA!

Fiberglass is typically a more desirable material. It is considered the best threshold material on vinyl frame doors.

Compare the actual warranties before deciding
