There are moments when I am downright envious of those living in warmer climes (which is pretty much everywhere but here in Vermont). Discovering JELD-WEN’s Folding Doors brought on one of those moments. Designed to push the trend of bringing the outside in, this exterior door system marries the classiness of French Doors with the action of a sliding patio door. Set on an overhead track, the folding doors fold up “accordion-style,” storing nicely off to the side and providing an expansive doorway to the great outdoors. The standard opening width is a gaping 24 feet, with 8, 10, and special-order 12-foot heights available. Configuration options abound, from 2-door styles to 8-door styles, and the doors are offered in two distinct materials—wood, and JELD-WEN’s custom fiberglass. Add a nice retractable screen package and you've got prime indoor-outdoor living. Check with your dealer—the system is available now.
