Wood French Doors
The use of window frames and French doors manufactured from wood is currently a popular trend in international architecture. French doors for patio or balcony in real wood especially impress due to their wonderful design features. Furthermore, modern wood with aluminium composite windows and doors reduce maintenance and cleaning to an absolute minimum. Wood has become increasingly popular over the last few years for the design of modern facades. This natural building material is often used together with concrete to produce an attractive contrast, but is just as impressive when used with other natural materials such as brickwork or where the facade is completely of wood. Wood can easily be combined with other materials and the range of design possible is virtually unlimited. Besides its natural look making it the friend of contemporary architects, wood also has excellent weatherproofing qualities: wooden facades are typically found in Scandinavian countries and have proved themselves over centuries even under extreme weather conditions.
Pure Wood: the Advantages
For French doors of pure wood the complete profile is made from wood. This modern facade material is characterised by its excellent robustness and its stability. For windows and doors, including French doors, the vast majority of the wood used comes from European sources, and includes oak and spruce, which as deciduous or coniferous woods are used to the European type of climate.
The individual structures and the growth features that go to make up the grain are typical for wood and give it that special charm that only natural materials have. Modern wooden windows and patio doors are environmentally friendly, as they represent a raw material which comes from sustainable forestry.
In terms of design wooden windows, when not covered with aluminium on the outside, stand out with the continuation of the wood surfaces into the exterior. French doors of real wood can be arranged to form an attractive contrast to a simple, unfussy facade in modern building style.
Real wood represents cosiness.
Those who choose French doors, or indeed complete facades, of wood should bear in mind that a ceretain effort will be required: every type of wood facade needs tender loving care.
In order that facades or windows and doors last a long time, they should be regularly treated with a special cleaning agent.
