Custom French Doors

Are you planning to add French doors to your home? Is it time to replace the ones you have? Either way, you may wonder whether to choose ready-made or custom French doors.

Ready-made doors may be faster and less expensive to install, but custom doors have numerous benefits that homeowners should not overlook. Here are three good reasons to choose the custom route.

3 Benefits of Custom Doors

Material Selection

Most premade French door manufacturers use one of only a few materials, usually pine or Masonite wood. With a custom door, however, you can choose from a broader range of materials. You can choose a different type of wood for your custom French doors, such as poplar or cedar, and you can also choose doors made of aluminum, steel, or fiberglass. Or, you might select clad French doors, which are wood covered by another material.

Ultimately, custom French doors let you tailor the composition to your needs and budget.


Space Efficiency

Like the material selection, premade French doors come in only a few sizes that fit standard door spaces, usually 70-80”. However, if you plan to replace the doors in an older home or add French doors to a unique space, the ready-made sizes may not be suitable. Custom French doors will ensure a perfect fit for your room, preventing the hassle and headaches of exchanging or altering a door that does not fit.



Even if a standard, premade door would work just fine, French doors are a great way to bring a personalized, eye-catching touch to a house to make it feel more like home.

For example, ordering an exterior French door made with cedar offers a durable option with a warm appearance. Using frosted glass in your French doors lets in light while maintaining privacy. Using a different color for the door quickly adds visual interest to a room.
