Installing High-Performance French Doors

Project: Victorian Kitchen & Bath Remodel, Episode 2, Part 3



Bob and contractor Tim Berky review the newly poured foundation that's been pointed in order to blend with the existing Victorian foundation. The new 5' x 16' mudroom addition is framed and topped with a hip roof that will be sheathed in copper. Also, Berky and his crew install new Pella French doors. These solid-wood framed, double-paned, argon-filled, low-e glass doors let in light, retain warmth, prevent heat gain, and have a triple-latch system for added security.
