Q. Why did you choose sliding glass doors?
A. We originally selected French doors, but when the bathroom was reconfigured, we lost space to comfortably open them into the room without hitting other doors or windows. We do not typically install outswing French doors as they are, blocked by inches of snow, nearly impossible to open in the winter and which require interior screen doors that can be lost to wind if not parked and secure. We install French doors only under very deep porches or inside screened-in porches.
