Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Wooden French Doors Wooden French Doors

    Among the variety of architectural styles you’ll find on the Southside of Jacksonville, Tudors and Cape Cods are the more traditional style homes. Wooden French doors exude a classic and sophisticated vibe, which should appeal to homeowners who desire a traditional design that will complement an exterior that already features multi-paned windows or windows with grilles.

  • Modern french patio doors Mediterranean-Style Homes

    From the Northside to the Southside, Jacksonville is no stranger to Mediterranean-style homes, which are recognized for their exterior stucco material, archways and curves, and ceramic terracotta roofs. French in-swing or out-swing patio doors fit right in with this aesthetic, maintaining the integrity of the design and providing functional performance.

  • French doors in a small space Small French Doors

    Making a big impression is not always about size. Homeowners who are feeling squeezed by a lack of space can make the most of it — while adding a touch of style — with narrower French doors to create openings as small as four feet, two inches wide. It functions as a gateway between the indoors and outdoors but does not crowd your space even with the doors open.

  • French patio doors with screens French Doors with Screens1

    Screens are much more common with sliding glass doors, but when paired with French patio doors, they can offer an uncommon touch unique to your home. Screens for in-swing hinged patio doors can be produced from a high-transparency InView™ cloth that allows in 14 percent more light and 8 percent more airflow than conventional fiberglass screens.

1Warning: Use caution when children or pets are around open windows and doors. Screens are not designed to retain children or pets.

Jacksonville Climate Recommendations

Jacksonville is classified as having a humid subtropical climate, which means that the summers are hot and wet and the winters are mild and dry. It is recommended that you use energy-efficient glass to help protect against these conditions. Living near the coast, with heavy rainfall concentrated in the hottest months of the year, you’ll also want to consider materials and finishes that can maintain appearance and performance in the salty air.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep your home comfortable — and help protect from the heat — with Low-E insulating glass that will also help keep energy costs down. SunDefense® Low-E Insulating Glass with Argon can block 94 percent of the sun’s heat and ultraviolet rays.

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

In coastal climates close to water, patio doors are vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Fiberglass and wood with exterior aluminum cladding can help resist wear from the sun and the ocean air.

Weather Protection

Salty Air

In coastal climates close to water, your windows are more vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Consider fiberglass to help maintain window integrity.
