Description of French Sliding Patio Doors
French sliding patio doors are very similar to the standard two-panel sliding patio doors that you’re probably used to seeing in San Diego homes, but with one key difference: French sliding patio doors have a thicker vinyl rail surrounding the glass that gives them the look of traditional French hinged doors. Regular sliding patio doors may have a 2 ½” rail, while French sliding doors may have a 4 ½" rail around the glass.
The operation of French sliding doors is the same as standard sliding patio doors, in that one door panel slides in front of the other panel (which is stationary) to open and close. Behind the operable panel, there will be a screen door, allowing in fresh air, but not bugs and debris!
Many San Diego homeowners choose to replace their original, standard sliding patio doors with French sliding doors of the same size to give their homes an upgrade. French sliding doors also tend to be more energy efficient than standard sliders because they have a smaller glass area.
French sliding patio doors can be placed in just about any room in your home, but you will typically find them in family rooms, living rooms, master bedrooms, or guest suites. They will often open up to a patio, deck, or balcony. They are great leading out to areas that have limited space, where a traditional French hinged door would not be practical due to space issues.

Operation of French Sliding Patio Doors
French sliding doors are less common than standard sliding patio doors, but their operation is the same. A French sliding door has one operable panel and one fixed panel. The operable panel slides in front of the fixed panel to open.

Benefits of French Sliding Patio Doors
French sliding patio doors have many benefits, making them very popular in San Diego homes. They:
- Are easy to operate.
- Add sophistication to any room that leads out to a patio, deck, or balcony.
- Are more energy efficient than traditional sliding patio doors, due to less glass area.
- Can be considered an upgrade from standard sliding patio doors, adding value to your home.
- Are available in custom heights and widths.
- Don't need the clearance that a traditional French hinged door requires.
Considerations for French Sliding Patio Doors
Each patio door type has its benefits and things to consider. Here is something to keep in mind when considering French sliding patio doors for your San Diego home:
- French sliding patio doors do not hinge outward like French hinged patio doors. So, although they don't interfere with furniture placement, they don't provide as wide an opening because one of the two glass panels is fixed in place.
