All About French Doors

One of the best parts about owning your home, is making it feel like yours. Maybe your dream home involves a big backyard, beautiful lighting or lots of windows. Either way it’s specially chosen, decorated, and curated just for you. One favorite among many of our customers are French doors. Unlike your typical door, French doors are two identical doors that open outward to create a large opening to a patio or garden. French doors are not only beautiful but also create space.

No matter what type of French doors you choose for your home, they will add more value to your home than your average sliding patio door. What type you choose to purchase and install may depend on your home, your outdoor space, and your needs.

Sliding French Doors – Unlike other sliding doors which only allow a door-sized opening, sliding French doors slide outward. They are beautiful when closed and out of sight out of mind when open.
Interior French Doors – Many homeowners utilize double French doors inside the home to connect two rooms. These doors swing outward to open up space inside the home.
Exterior French Doors – French patio doors allow for natural light when closed, and create a large, inviting doorway when open.

Choosing Your French Doors

When choosing your French Doors, it’s important to choose the best option for your home. Whatever works best for you, adds value to your home, and will stand against your region’s weather will determine what material you choose for your French doors. Most French doors are available in uPVC, composite, aluminum, and wood. In our service area of Northern California, French doors made of timber are popular. Wood is readily available in the region and is unaffected by the dry climate. Other regions with more humidity may get better results with aluminum, uPVC, or composite materials. Even with the perfect weather and low humidity, we still have bugs in and around Sacramento. That means that no matter what type of French doors you have, we can screen them for you.

ClearView Retractable Screen Doors

One of our favorite products is the ClearView Retractable screen door. They do the best job keeping bugs out while being discrete and providing natural light and a view. Fortunately for our customers, these screen doors can be installed on a set of double French doors just like any other door! When you depend on A to Z Window Screens, your French doors can be screened with ClearView screens that are secure and completely invisible.

Whether you have French doors, are thinking of getting some, or have other doors and windows to screen, we can help.

All About Retractable Screens

As you prepare your home for spring, there’s one accessory you should be considering: Retractable screens! Retractable screens allow you to enjoy the breeze and keep the bugs out while still enjoying the temperate spring weather. Here’s what you need to know about retractable screens for your home.

How retractable screens work

Retractable screens are a simple technology, but they stand to revolutionize your home. Retractable screens are installed in a discrete housing on one side of your door jamb. When the screen is not in use, it’s rolled away out of site. When you do want to use the screen, you simply pull it across the doorway opening and secure it in place. With a retractable screen door, you have a screen in place when you want it and an unobstructed door when you need it. That allows you to enjoy pleasantly breezy days without having to worry about screen doors altering the look of your home or obstructing the vistas from your windows when your screen doors aren’t in use.

Where to use retractable screen doors

Retractable screens can be used in a variety of ways around your home. They’re perfect for any doorway that you don’t want to have obstructed with a screen. They can be used on sliding patio doors so that the view from half of the doorway doesn’t have to be obstructed with a screen. They’re a popular solution for double French doors, which often can’t be fitted with traditional screen doors, as well as any other unusual doorway openings that won’t fit a traditional screen door. For people who have ornate front doors that they don’t want to block with a traditional screen door, a retractable screen allows the front door to be seen as it should be, while still allowing you to open the front door to let a breeze in when you want to. Retractable screens also are popular for doorways that connect the house to the garage; they allow for a screen door when it’s convenient, but homeowners don’t have to deal with the added barrier of a swinging screen door when they’re carrying in groceries or loading or unloading the car.
