Patio Doors & French Doors

When getting a quote for that new or replacement door, one question that is often asked is what's the difference between French doors and patio doors? In a nutshell, French doors are hinged, opening outwards or inwards like traditional doors, whilst patio doors slide from side to side.


It depends on the dimensions of course, but you'll notice that because on a patio door, one panel will always slide in front or behind another, the overall opening is usually just that little bit bigger on a similar French door when both halves are opened.
With French doors, there's no fixed centre strut that both doors seal up to, as one door, the one usually left closed, bears the centre strut upon it. The best door for you will all depend on your home and what your specific needs or requirements are.
