Pittsburgh French Patio Doors

French Doors Offer an Elegant Back Entrance Into Your Home

Bring functional style into a small space with French patio doors. These doors are hinged at the sides and swing open from the center for a welcoming entryway between your home and your patio. Perfect for the high-traffic entertaining area of your home, consider French patio doors to be an elegant bridge connecting your interior living space with the outdoors.

You can even customize your French patio doors to suit your style. Choose between a single or side-by-side configuration, with the option of an inswing or an outswing. Side-by-side French doors even allow for one door to be operable while the other remains stationary.

Popular Local Trends & Styles

Wooden French Doors

Colonial, Cape Cod, and Tudor-style homes are among the most common types of architecture in the Pittsburgh area, each of them built with a traditional design. Wooden French doors would make for a seamless addition to any one of those homes, complementing exteriors that already feature multi-paned windows or windows with grilles.

Tudor Style

Pittsburgh is host to a number of Tudor-style homes that have been around for centuries. French patio doors complement the long and narrow-shaped windows that are most common with Tudor-style homes. Not only will these French doors open up your home to more natural light, but they will also integrate well within the manor-style architecture.

French Doors With Screens

It’s less common to see a screen* paired with French patio doors, as opposed to sliding glass doors, but an uncommon touch could be what your traditional home needs. 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. Enhance your home with a screen door that will practically be invisible.

Small French Doors

You don’t need large doors to create a big opening in your home. If you’re living in a smaller home but are looking to add a design element that will maximize your space, narrower French doors can create openings as small as four feet, two inches wide. Even when the doors are open, you’re not having to sacrifice more space. Instead, you’ve bridged the indoors with the outdoors for a more wide open space that offers the best of both environments.

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