What Are French Doors?
French doors are a type of swinging door with two leafs that can swing inward or outward. These doors are typically located at the back of houses and provide access to the garden.
So, lets talk about their history. Building particularly large French doors that were not overly fragile in the 17th century was challenging. However, symmetry was crucial in architecture at the time, and the resulting layout was considered to be quite elegant.
French doors evolved into increasingly highly decorated forms like many other architectural details. French doors came in various styles as glassmaking and building methods developed. A huge number of fashionable options are available today, each of which serves a unique function.

The Benefits of French Doors From Clydebuilt
Low-maintenance and highly durable
uPVC is a type of plastic, so it doesn’t need to be treated yearly like natural materials such as wood. This makes it easy to maintain. The material won’t rot or warp even when exposed to bad weather. This gives uPVC incredibly long-lasting qualities.
Additional privacy and security
When deciding on a home improvement project, the safety of your home should be a top priority. With the location of your French doors likely to be at the back of your property, it’s still important not to disregard security. Potential burglars will look for every opening that gives them a chance to enter your property, and they will prioritise exploiting those points where doing so will be easiest.
Thanks to our solid multi-point locking mechanisms and glazing units, our doors ensure an enhanced security deterrent, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.
Enhance The Energy Efficiency of Your Glasgow Home
If you so choose to install French doors with double or triple-glazed glass, it can make your home more energy efficient as less energy may be required to heat or cool a room. Improving energy efficiency is just one of the reasons why our customers in Glasgow and across the nation love them.
Homeowners have never been more inclined to ensure the energy efficiency of their property due to the rise in energy costs over the last few years. The contemporary design of our French doors is highly effective in keeping warmth inside a property. This means you can expect to be less reliant on central heating to maintain a relaxing temperature in the cooler months of the year, helping your home become more energy efficient and potentially reducing the cost of your energy bill.
