Fiberglass Or Real Wood? That Is The Question

wood_pic1French Patio Doors are a brilliant way to interconnect the indoors to your outdoor garden, balcony or patio. French doors are classic and timeless and can fit in any style vintage or modern style home. Traditionally, French doors have been made from wood or steel, but more recently fiberglass has been a popular material of choice for homeowners.

With the ever changing weather in the Santa Clarita Valley, it can be difficult to use materials that are sensitive to excessive heat or cold. Many homeowners have faced problems when using traditional materials, like wood or stainless steel. When wood is faced with extreme heat, moisture or frigid temperatures, it will warp, bow and even expand so it can make it nearly impossible to open and close your doors. Even the best hardwoods can only last for a few decades. Steel can also easily break when rusted and can be dented quickly.
