Sliding patio doors represent the standard rear door and living room entry in many homes in North America. While these doors can increase a room’s natural light, other trade-offs exist. In most cases, only one side of the sliding door is functional, which reduces the size of the opening. Additionally, these doors are often heavy and prone to slipping off their rails. As a result, they can be difficult to open or close until they are rehung.

Traditional double French patio doors offer better space utilization and are often set on pivots or hung on hinges to offer a more secure and convenient opening. With custom French patio doors, homeowners and architects can benefit from French patio doors for even the most unique designs or space requirements.
