3/4 Glass Exterior French Doors

The 3/4 Glass Exterior French Doors feature eight leaded glass panes. They cover about 3/4 of the door slab, hence the name. We added a flat wood panel on the bottom quarter for a traditional touch. This door is elegant and built to last.

Fabulous Glass Exterior French Doors

 

Craving more natural light in your home? This is the exterior french door for you. It’s an updated take on the traditional French door, with a smaller surface area of glass and a flat wood panel on the bottom quarter of the door. French architects call this kind of door “porte-fenêtre” which means “window door.” Think of it like a door and a window in one. It's shown above in Black Walnut. Raised panels are available upon request.

 

Our doors are made with premium materials. We use insulated glass, available either in etched or clear, so you can choose how private you want the door to be. Choose from twenty different wood species, ranging from traditional (like Maple) to exotic (like Wenge). Our exterior doors come with an exclusive white oak threshold and 100% silicone Swiss door sweep, a combination that prevents water damage to the jamb. We offer three options for door jambs, including the same species as the door for a cohesive look. We use 100% solid wood in our doors and jambs. Because we believe a thing that’s worth building is worth building right.   

 

What we build with is only half the story. How we build is the other. Skilled artisans cut, assemble, and finish our doors by hand. So our doors have an artisanal quality that’s hard to replicate in a mass-produced world. Plus, our artisans use traditional deep joinery methods to add to your door’s longevity.    

 

We think this door is ideal for traditional, coastal, shabby-chic, or French farmhouse styles. It works great as a front door, side door, or door to the backyard—anywhere you want a touch of French grace.  

 

Skilled artisans make all our doors by hand onsite in Gig Harbor, a small seaport town on the Puget Sound in Washington State.

 

Wood Species

RealCraft offers twenty different wood species, ranging from traditional to exotic.

 

One of the reasons we love real wood so much is that it carries the character of its natural habitat. Wood species respond differently to humidity and temperature conditions. If you aren't sure which wood species to pick, call us at 1-800-694-5977.

 

If you want to see our wood in person before making a selection, you can order samples here. Check out our wood buying guide here.

 

Note that exterior Cedar doors come with a Douglas Fir jamb.

 

Glass Options

When selecting a glass option for this door, keep in mind how private the space is. Choose the standard clear glass for full transparency or the etched option for a little more privacy.

 

We also offer custom glass options upon request.

 

Hinge Style & Placement

Our standard entry hinges are 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" ball-bearing hinges available in:

  • Standard Steel with multiple finish options
  • Solid Brass
  • Pure Stainless Steel

If your door will be an outswing door--especially in coastal areas--we recommend stainless steel or brass hinges to prevent corrosion.

 

We offer American or European hinge placement of the ball bearing hinges. American-style hinge placement spaces out the hinges evenly. The European-style puts two hinges high on the door and one at the bottom. We recommend European style hinge placement, it is the strongest option. This placement allows the two upper hinges to better bear the load of the door, thus preventing sag over time.

 

Our Simonswerk Tectus concealed hinges come in pairs and are three-dimensionally adjustable: side +/- 3mm, height, +/- 3mm, compression +/- 1.5mm. They are available in multiple finishes and are a top-of-the-line, completely concealed hinge system with maintenance-free slide bearings. Choose this door hinge for a sleek, upscale finish.

 

Door Handing & Swing Direction

To determine door handing: Stand with your back to the jamb to be hinged. Then let your arm be the door and note whether the door swings to your right or your left. If it swings to your left, it is a left-handed door. If it swings to your right, it is a right-handed door.

 

To determine “inswing” or “outswing”: First, stand outside your house. Then, when your door opens does it open into the house? Then it is an inswing door. Does it open out from the house? Then it is an outswing door. 

 

Note: Inswing doors are more typical for entry doors.

 

Pre-Hung Door Jambs

There are three options for jamb material: 

  • Hemlock, the industry standard
  • Douglas Fir, an upgraded option 
  • Door Matched wood, for a premium look 

 

Jamb measurements: Door width plus 2 3/8" (plus another 1/2" with concealed hinges)

Minimum rough opening: Door width plus 2 3/4" (plus another 1/2" with concealed hinges)

 

Please note that exterior casing/trim is not included. 

 

Pre-Hung Door Threshold & Sweep

Pre-hung doors come with an exclusive white oak threshold. Our white oak threshold offers superior water protection and wear resistance. We use a pure silicone, adjustable Swiss weather sweep set into the bottom of the door. Kerfed weatherstripping is standard. If you need an ADA threshold, call us. 

 

Door Maintenance 

Our doors are designed to be low maintenance. If you live in a place that has big temperature changes between seasons, you may need to tighten or lubricate your hinges from time to time. You should also adjust the door sweep to make sure it keeps the door sealed against the elements over time.

 

Our Osmo oil hardwax finishes may need a refresh every 1-3 years depending on their exposure to elements. Large temperature & humidity changes, direct exposure to sunlight, and seaside environments all can affect how often a door needs refreshing. Unlike plastic based varnishes, Our Osmo oil hardwax finishes don’t chip or flake off, so you don’t have to sand them to refinish. Simply clean the wood surface and reapply the finish, removing excess and rubbing in for best results.

 

If your door gets dirty (weather, pets, children, etc.) you can clean it with a gentle soap and water. If you have to clean the hinges for any reason, make sure they dry thoroughly.

Ordering a pre-hung door means the door jamb is included. Therefore measurements for pre-hung doors should take into account the overall Unit Measurements and the Minimum Rough Opening where it will be installed.

  • With one sidelight: Door Width + Sidelight Width4-1/2" for Unit Width3/8" per side minimum for Rough Opening Width
  • With two sidelights: Door Width + Sidelight Widths6-3/4" for Unit Width3/8" per side minimum for Rough Opening Width

Please note that any door or door unit that measures more than 90 inches in both width and height will be shipped as a kit with jamb legs disassembled and side light glass separate. This is done to comply with crate size limits on freight trucks. 

We highly recommend adding a clear finish to your door to protect it and make sure that it is eligible to be covered by our warranty. A clear finish not only protects your door, it also enhances its beauty and brings out the color and detail of the grain. Visit our wood species page to learn more. 

 

We offer the following finish options:

  • White Primer: Added to Paint Grade Hardwood. For this option, we use only high-quality hardwoods like European Beech or Red Grandis. These species provide a smooth surface for paint.
  • Clear Satin Eurofinish by Osmo: A high-end hand-rubbed hardwax oil that conditions, seals, and finishes the wood.
  • Oil Stain EuroFinish by Osmo: A high-end hand-rubbed hardwax oil that stains, seals, and finishes the wood.
