Springtime Benefits Of French Doors

22 March, 2023

It’s been a long, dark winter but spring is finally here. The days are getting longer and brighter, and the first green shoots are starting to appear. At this time of year, we’ve noticed that our customers like to think about all the household renovations they’ve been putting off for months. We get asked about the best ways to improve a home and one that always comes to mind is French doors.

Installing French Doors

There’s something inherently fresh and vibrant about French doors. They have large glazing areas and all that glass lets in plenty of natural light. This is especially noticeable in spring when your home becomes brighter and warmer. As French doors usually lead onto balconies or patios, they also give a great view of the back garden. Looking through them and seeing the first tulips and daffodils coming to life can fill you with optimism, and watching the children complete an Easter egg hunt is delightful too.

For these reasons, French doors become increasingly popular at this time of year. And despite having a classical European vibe about them, they’re surprisingly versatile. French doors can be customised to suit both traditional homes and new builds. It’s possible to get them in a wide range of colours and sizes, so whatever your tastes, you’ll be able to find some that are perfect.

Why Choose Aluminium Doors?

Here at AluFold, our French doors are made with aluminium. This gives them inherent strength and resilience, so if the weather turns bad you can rely on them to keep your home safe, warm and dry. They’ll deter any opportunistic burglars as well. The frames are durable and they’re fitted with double-glazed windows as standard, so won’t form a weakness in the exterior of your house. They require less maintenance than UPVC or timber doors and have longer lifespans.

Our aluminium French doors also offer exceptional thermal efficiency. This might seem more beneficial in winter, but it has advantages in spring as well. They minimise heat transfer between indoors and out, which makes it far easier to control household temperatures. As the weather gets warmer, you won’t need to run the air con as much to keep your house cool. If you want your living space to be more comfortable, our French doors will make a big contribution.

With all these considerations, it’s not surprising that we get more enquiries about French doors when the weather improves. So, if you’re interested in giving your house a big spring clean, why not contact us and ask about French doors? We can be reached via email at or by calling 01706 260700. We can’t wait to hear from you.
