French Door FAQs
French doors are installed as a pair and fitted onto hinges which enable them to open outwards or inwards. Patio doors is more of a catch-all term that refers to any set of doors that open directly onto a paved area. This means patio doors can include doors which open with a slide, whereas French doors do not.
The cost of your French doors will depend on the material, colours and glazing you choose. Our expert craftspeople assess every job on an individual basis. We design French doors to suit your exact needs. Find out how much French doors cost by getting in touch.
Yes – historically French doors have been defined by the fact that they’re installed as a pair, with a left door and a right door. This is why you’ll sometimes find French doors listed or described as double doors.
French doors are traditionally built to open outwards onto the garden. However, we offer the option to install them to open inwards too depending on what’s best for the space.
To stop French doors that open out from swinging open in the wind or getting damaged, it is a good idea to invest in hook fixings that will secure the door in place. These are usually drilled into the brickwork behind the door so that you can hook them back when open.
French doors are usually categorised as a permitted development, so you will not need planning permission for them. But you will need planning permission where you are making a major structural change, like an extension, building something completely new, or changing the use of the property, like turning a home into a commercial building.
