What is the difference between Patio Doors & French Windows?
One of the major differences patio doors & French Windows is how they open. French Windows open outwards in the same manner as conventional doors. However, patio doors work by sliding along a track, so they open to the side. They both provide great style and ventilation.
The sliding nature of patio doors makes them well suited to modern houses. The French Window, with its traditional opening action fits in well with traditional, period or older styles of building
Another key difference is that a patio door is generally constructed with one long glazed panel that slides along a rail in order to open. Whilst a French Windows tend to be manufactured in pairs. Patio doors are usually wider than French Windows.
Both patio doors & French Windows allow a lot of natural light into your home. French doors can use a variety of smaller glazing pieces to provide enhanced privacy and more style. Patio doors allow more natural light into a room because they tend to have a larger area of glass.
