A great way to work with homeubilders who are prepared to offer your French doors to their clients as an upgrade finishing option. Design tip: To make your custom French doors unique and different from your competitors, you may want to consider a few of the following: Gold-plated or solid brass hardware, stained glass or sandblasted glass lites, stainless steel or mosaic tile covers, and curved or shaped tops.
