French doors fitted in County Durham

French doors are a type of door opening made from a single sheet of glass surrounded by a light frame to create the perfect airy space you’ve always wanted.

These stunning solutions are often used for back doors, as they can offer a full view of your garden and the landscape around it.

Originally invented during the French Renaissance period in the 17th Century as a means of letting in light and making homes less dreary, these innovative doors have remained popular to this very day.

For homeowners across Durham, Newcastle and the North East, external French doors can be an ideal way to combine interior design with the external beauty of the landscape around you.

Call 01913230466 to find out more about adding French doors to your property and make the most of your views.

We’ve just had windows and doors supplied and fitted by Bellwood’s and cannot recommend them highly enough. From Joe, who sold the windows to us, to Dave and Les who fitted them, we had a friendly and professional service. We’re delighted with our doors and windows …they even arranged a builder to fit a new lintel to enable a safe install of our French doors. Thank you, Bellwood’s.

Best window fitters I've ever had. I've had several houses and these guys are great. Joe who came round first was brill. No sale tactics or call the manager rubbish. Just an honest and straightforward price. I was impressed from the get go. The turnaround was really fast. Dave and Les fitted them over 2 days. I noticed huge attention to detail inside and out. Perfectly sealed and spotlessly clean. They also went the extra mile lifting a big frame over the roof to get it in and also serviced another door I which I wasn't changing. I think the bacon sarnies swayed that one. Great lads all round. I highly recommend them. The windows and doors themselves are perfect. Makes a huge difference to the home. Thank you all.

HOW FRENCH DOORS CAN ENHANCE YOUR HOME

There are many ways to add external French doors to your home and create a unique, welcoming space. Some examples include:

UPVC FRENCH DOORS

UPVC French doors are a popular solution for many homeowners, offering great value and style.

UPVC, or Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride, is a lightweight and versatile material that is ideal for a range of door styles, including French doors.

UPVC doors are cost-effective and easy to customise, so you can match your French doors to your UPVC windows and other door openings throughout your home.

BI-FOLDING FRENCH DOORS

Bi-fold exterior French doors combine the beauty of French doors with the functionality of bi-folding solutions.

For a larger door opening, these doors can be a unique and useful addition.

Unlike sliding doors, bi-folding doors offer a range of opening options so you can create a comfortable space and make the most of your garden all year round.

FRENCH DOORS FOR CONSERVATORIES

French doors are the perfect solution for any conservatory, as they fit seamlessly into the design and offer a secure opening to let in fresh air.

Conservatories are our speciality, so the team at Bellwood’s can help you to design the perfect addition to your home with our French door selection.

FRENCH DOOR FAQS

ARE FRENCH DOORS ENERGY EFFICIENT?

Exterior French doors can be energy efficient, provided you hire experts in installing French doors, like the team at Bellwood’s. Using the right seal and double glazed panels, we ensure energy efficiency, security, style and functionality in our French doors.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DOUBLE DOORS AND FRENCH DOORS?

French doors are made with two glass panels, which usually open outwards, whereas most double doors are made from solid wood. Some double doors only open on one side, whereas French doors can open on both sides to maximise space.

DO FRENCH DOORS OPEN IN OR OUT?

Typically, French doors open outwards, but it is possible to fit French doors that open inwards if you prefer. Our door experts can discuss your options to ensure they do the best possible job fitting your new French doors.

CAN BOTH FRENCH DOORS BE OPENED AT THE SAME TIME?

Both French doors can be opened at the same time to allow you to make the most of your space. This makes French doors the ideal solution for properties of all sizes throughout the North East.
