Patio doors can make your home’s exterior look elegant and aesthetically pleasing. Renewal by Andersen® of Western New York can install hinged French doors in your Pittsford, NY home or any home in the surrounding area.

From the Exterior
To help you understand what you’re getting, here are the parts of a Frenchwood hinged inswing patio door: from the exterior, the patio door frame is formed by the head jamb, the left hand and right hand jambs, and the sill. The base of each panel includes the watershed; the gasket weatherstrip, which is designed to seal the panel to the frame; and the hinges, which are located outside the edges of the panels.
Frenchwood hinged patio doors have two operating panels: the active panel, which contains the lock and is the primary operating panel (you need to open the active panel before you can open the passive one); and the passive panel, which holds the astragal, or the part where the two panels meet.
From the Interior
French patio doors have vertical members or stiles, horizontal members or rails, and the glass, which can be found at the center. Glazing stops keep the glass in place and secured to the panel. The trimset hardware includes: handles, thumbturn, escutcheon plates, the lock mechanism (located on the active panel and operates the hook bolts), hook bolts (these are located on the upper and lower edges of the door), and the strike plate and the blockers (both located on the passive panel).
