Description of French Sliding Patio Doors
French sliding patio doors provide the elegance and sophistication of French doors while also allowing the convenience of a sliding door. Other than the look, French sliding doors are very similar to standard sliding patio doors. In many cases, a French slider can fit into the existing opening where a standard sliding door was originally. In this way, French sliders can make for an easy upgrade option. French sliding patio doors have a wider frame around the glass which give the look and feel of French hinged doors.
Common ApplicationsFrench sliding patio doors can be used anywhere traditional patio doors are installed. However, French sliders are often considered an upgrade used in master bedrooms, guest suites and living spaces. They work equally well for ground floor rooms and multi-story homes. French sliders add elegance to any Southern California home.
Operation of French Sliding Patio Doors
Although French sliding patio doors are less common, they operate much like a traditional slider. One side of the door simply slides toward the opposite side. The section that moves is called the mobile section, which slides horizontally in front of the stationary section.

Considerations for French Sliding Patio Doors
Each door type has it's benefits and things to consider. Here are a few things to keep in mind when considering French sliding patio doors for your Southern California home...
