Benefits of French Doors

  • Increased durability: With an adjustable hinge system or rollers, French doors are designed to withstand more wear and tear than regular door models.

     

  • Enhanced security: The locks on French doors usually offer a higher level of security than standard door locks since they feature deadbolts that secure the two leaves together.

     

  • Aesthetic appeal: With their classic style and clean lines, French doors can add an elegant touch to any living environment.
