If you are looking for French style doors, we like to inform our customers up front that vinyl is not usually an option. Because of the weight of the glass in the swinging panels, French style doors are not built in vinyl as there is a possibility that the frame could warp. Because of the heavy glass panels French style doors are typically built in metal, wood, or a wood clad-aluminum frame. The wood clad-aluminum are the most popular, and is available in many wood types and color options. The door itself has a stainable wood frame with an aluminum facing on the outside. This is great, especially in the New Mexico climate, because it protects the outside of the door from the elements.
