What are the benefits of French Doors?
French doors have been around for decades, but they have never been more in vogue than today.
This is down to the traditional meets modern look that French doors provide to homeowners. Not only are they attractive and versatile in design, but they add a unique European charm to any property they are installed in.
In addition, the modern French door is far more energy efficient than in years gone by.
As French doors have large glass panes and are often installed as an external exit to the back garden, they have been known to be a source of heat loss within the home. However, by using double-glazing and uPVC materials, French doors in the UK can be made with excellent thermal performance and can retain heat just as well as a timber or composite door.
Balhousie French doors UK can be made with high thermal materials, double-glazed panels and Liniar uPVC frames, ensuring that your new set of French doors not only look stunning but are highly practical as well.
Please see some of the examples of French doors made and installed by Balhousie in the image gallery opposite.
