Any idea what make and model the door is? Joe C is pretty good at this stuff, but "French Door" is a pretty wide field. Is it French doors, or an Atrium Door? Open out?

"Phantom" screens are the best retractable screen out there. "Clear View" makes a decent product, but I don't like how high there sill system is. It tends to dam up water when it rains, casung the water to seep through the door's sill.

I do know that Lowe's sells the Phantom screen, but it is not a DIY friendly install for a double door system. Don't expect Lowe's to install it very well either. Best bet is to google Phantom screen and find a dealer in your area. They may charge a little more than Lowe's, but it will definitely be worth it.
