Sliding Glass Door vs. French Door

French DoorsYou’ve made the most important decision, which is to replace your New England home’s old and outdated patio doors. Now, you have a choice—one that has been causing anxiety for homeowners for decades. Do you opt for contemporary sliding glass doors or more traditional French doors? It’s a question with no wrong answer, as both options offer distinct benefits. So, how do you decide? Here’s some information that may help:

Sliding Glass Doors

Exterior sliding doors are the more popular option for patios, as they are often less expensive than French doors and provide uninterrupted outdoor views. Sliding—or hinged—patio doors require minimal space, are easy to operate, and even come with a screen door that allows you to enjoy breezes without worrying about insects or leaves entering your home. They are available in a variety of materials, including fiberglass, vinyl, and steel, and deliver excellent energy efficiency and weather protection. You can also select three- and four-panel options for larger openings.

French Doors

The only time that French doors aren’t a good option is when space is tight and the door won’t have enough room to swing open (though you could choose doors that open outward to solve this problem). Offering a more traditional look, French doors will add elegance to any home. They are also customizable through your choice of grid pattern, hardware, and more.

Patio Doors That Are Engineered for Performance

When deciding between sliding or French patio doors for your New England home, the easiest decision is which company to choose for your installation project. NEWPRO has been providing outstanding products and services for a fair price since 1945, so we know a thing or two about patio doors.

Let us help you choose the right patio doors for your home. Contact NEWPRO today to schedule a no-obligation consultation.

Featured Testimonials

Siding Replacement Project

The NEWPRO process was fantastic.

They showed us a full 3D rendering of the final result before anything ever got started.

Peter & Jessica
Kingston, MA

Window Replacement Project

Quality of the windows was superior to the others we looked at. Now, our windows tilt in, so it's going to be much easier to clean them.

Pembroke, MA

Pool House Doors Project

Cold stays out in the winter. Cold stays in during the summer.

The best thing I love is the craftsmanship from NEWPRO. You'd never know we had the old door cut out because it was rotted from the New England weather.

Scott Zolak

Windows Replacement Project

The sales guy was very thorough and answered all of my questions. The guys that installed the windows were fantastic.

My heating bills have dropped significantly — by about 30% than what they were before.
