French door opinions


Hi all. We are considering upgrading from a standard door to one of those french doors. This will be a back door that opens onto a patio. I am looking for opinions on Jeld Wen and Reliabuilt since that is what Lowes and HD offer. Or should I look for another source?

On that note what are my header requirements for a 72" opening?

Looked up Andersen. I've always liked their windows. Looks like HD sells a 400 series slider pretty reasonable. Do they have a swing out model or one with internal mini blinds? I didn't see any on their website.

No mini blinds.
They do have in and out swing doors.
Go to a local retailer with your choices.
