french patio doors

kippeeJuly 15, 2012

I need to replace a sliding patio door and want a french patio door. I've looked at Marvin Integrity, Jeld-Wen, Milgard, Anderson. I am concerned that the doors have a good lock, or multipoint locks. Which company or companies produce a good quality door and which tend to have problems?

I would take a look at Provia. They make both steel and fiberglass french doors with a lot of color and decorative glass options.

What did you not like about the doors you have looked at so far?

Andersen Frenchwood sliders are very well made. Watch their sizing though. They size a 6-8 door differently than most.

What did you decide? We have 2 Anderson french sliders and i love them! We have had them for 10 years and they slide like a dream. Nice heavy door and really blocks out the heat from the sun. One thing I like about the door is that you can lock it in a partially open position. Feels safe to keep open all night. It came unfinished, so I did have to stain it.

Here is a picture of the one in our living room. Wood interior and prefinished white exterior. Ignore the happy Christmas kid ;)

The bottom framing is slightly larger than the top.

Looks like the pup was recovering from some surgery?

Thanks windowsonwashington, he aspirated salt water into his lungs at the dig beach. He was hospitalized for a day and half. The picture was when he came home. He is perky as ever now. Pretty scary though!

Don't mean to hijack the window thread! :)
