So Why are French Doors, French? 
A French door, also known as a French window, is a light door that has rectangular glass panes extending its full length. It is a very common as well as popular door since they provide additional illumination into a room and also enhances the overall appearance of a house.

To understand the French door name, one must look back to history. Back in 16th or 17th century times, France and Italy were at war.  After the French held victories in the Italian lands, the French were influenced by Italian Renaissance architectural design.  Italian form aimed at capturing the light and embraced symmetry and proportional elements.  By having full window glass across the expanse of the door, this would maximize the amount of light throughout the day (without the modern invention of electricity to power lighting all day).  With their stately beauty and elegance, French doors combined with the flood of sunlight enhanced the overall look of the home. 

Today, French doors continue to bring the natural light of the outdoors in, while improving the curb appeal of your home.  To get the historical feel of the individual panes, windows now have the option of grilles between glass.  In this design, you can get this look built into the glass, adding easy maintenance and clean up for years to come.

What's the best way to clean French doors with grids?
- M. Chambers
Mike's Reply: 
Thank you for your question.  Here are some ideas to speed up cleaning the individual glass sections of a set of French doors with grids: 
1. Always start at the top of the door, working your way down to clean. 
2. Create a custom squeegee by cutting it sized  one inch less than the width of each section. 
3. Wet the glass and wipe the window section with a sponge. 
4. Then, squeegee the window for a clean finish. 
5. Wipe up any excess water on the frame.   
6. Repeat until all sections are complete.

If and when you would like to update your French doors, we offer doors with the look of grilles between the glass.  The design achieves your desired look and is easier for clean up for years to come.
