French patio doors
 
I'm looking for reasonably priced french doors where both doors open outward. Do you know the best brand to shop and possibly the store with the most selection?

Check out Thermatru. For the price they are decent.

Or Andersen. Don't sacrifice qualityhere. Cheap doors sag, leak air and often water, in a short time.

Define, "reasonably priced".
Suggesting stores will be easier if you let us know where you live. On Long Island I use Windowrama or a local lumberyard.

French Doors can be inexpensive at local big box stores such as Lowe's or Home Depot. They can even come with the door jamb installed (Prehung) - I used to stock them and they are heavy. But they are well worth it.

I would suggest finding a local handyman or contractor to help you with the door installation if you are not too famililar as improper installation can lead to future problems. Finding an outswing unit can be a tough search but not impossible to find, they are usually priced differently though.

Good Luck!
