French doors can provide a sophisticated and beautiful look to your home. They are usually made from hardwood materials i.e., timber, but in recent years UPVC and aluminium have become more popular. We’re your local French door installers and specialise in UPVC. We can help bring plenty of natural light into your home and provide easy access to your garden.
Benefits of French Doors
Customised for You
Our UPVC French doors come in a range of colour finishes, materials and openings that are all low maintenance and long lasting. You can also choose from a variety of handle and glazing options.
French Doors open without a central column, giving you an unrestricted amount of natural light coming through the opening. External French doors are a fantastic option for modest sized homes as they can really make a room feel more open and spacious.
All of our UPVC products are manufactured with thermal performance and energy efficiency in mind. The UPVC profile has an internal chamber to improve insulation, whilst all glass panels are double glazed to prevent the escape of heat.
Low Threshold Option
We can offer a low threshold to all our UPVC French Doors. This means that the bottom of the door frame doesn’t protrude very far from the floor of your home, giving you greater accessibility. This makes it easy for wheelchairs or pushchairs to enter or exit, and reduces the chance of tripping over the threshold.
UPVC French Doors need minimal maintenance after installation. UPVC is completely weatherproof and protected by high quality weather seals so that you never have to worry about rusting or rotting. To maintain the French door, you only have to keep all moving components free of excess dust or dirt.
Secure as Standard
All our UPVC French Doors come with multi-point locking systems, ensuring that the door has minimal weak spots. Our locks are all supplied by Yale, the industry leader for locking systems and home security. The framework itself is supported by steel reinforcement, giving you total peace of mind.
Our UPVC door installation service includes not only the installation of your new door but also the removal and disposal of your old door and frame. We always ensure that the installation work is completed correctly and cleaned for a first-class, tidy finish.

What is the difference between a French door and a sliding patio door?
French doors open outwards on a hinge, whilst sliding patio doors move sideways along a track. This gives French doors a more traditional look, while patio doors are more modern. Having said that, French doors are often called patio doors, so the terms are becoming interchangeable.
Are French doors or patio doors safer?
Modern French doors are generally more secure because they have multi-point locking systems and many manufacturers of French doors have passed the PAS024 security testing. Sliding patio doors can have weaker locking mechanisms that use a simple push up or down system for locking and unlocking.
Do French doors last a long time?
Like most windows or doors, French doors will need to be replaced from time to time. They usually need replacing after around 30 years, but the exact amount of time depends on the material they’re manufactured from and how well they’ve been maintained.
