So, you’ve set your heart on some new French doors to enhance a specific area of your home that’s pleading for more space and light; great choice! But now you need to know the cost of French doors. So, we thought we’d give you a helping hand by highlighting certain specifics that may affect the price of your new French doors:
The first question is: how many door panels do you need to fill the doorway? If it’s an irregular size or an awkward aperture, chances are this will increase the cost of French doors.
The second question is: what do you want your French doors to be made from? With a choice of uPVC, timber or aluminium; which one is going to be the most reliable as well as economic? At Andy Glass Windows, we are firm believers that timber and aluminium cannot compare to the optimum blend of durability, versatility and competitively priced aspects that modern uPVC offers Oxfordshire homeowners – especially with external applications.
The third question is: do you want single, double or triple glazed French doors? At the end of the day, it all depends on your budget and how energy efficient you wish your home to be. Single glazing may end up being the cheapest option, however it will be the most in-efficient choice and very likely that you’ll lose more money through higher energy bills further down the line. Double or triple glazing is your best bet here, where triple glazing can save up to £160 a year on bills by maximising the effects of any energy used. Triple glazing will also increase your homes security, whilst offering better quality acoustic barriers – depending on your budget of course.
The cost of French doors can also be affected by the type of finish and additional furnishings you opt for. For example, homeowners looking for a classic colour finish with no additional furnishings will generally pay less; in comparison to selecting a realistic woodgrain finish French door with matching lock and handle mechanisms.
The cost of French doors also hinges on the installer that you employ, to carry out your renovation work.
