French doors vs sliders

16 years ago

Hi all,

Our builder is telling us that French Doors are not

as effective at insulating and keeping out the elements as sliders are. This doorway will lead to an outdoor, uncovered patio. Anyone have any experience with this?

(It is a concern because we live in an area that experiences 4 seasons and the winters hit low, single digits.) Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
