    Hi again,
    They only allow 1000 letters per post so I could not say that I am very sorry that
    I did not respond to you in a more timely manner... I just saw the message notification
    this morning. If you have any more door questions or concerns just let me know.

    BTW...What lake do you live on?

    Some type of french door would probably suit you best.
    They all consist of a frame, usually about 4" wide, around
    the outside with glass set into the inside of that frame. It can have
    one large clear pane of glass or be divided typically into 5 lites, 10 lites or
    my favorite, marginal lites.
    Here is a link to some wood french door styles> T.M. Cobb Exterior Doors - French Doors Collection >.
    If your door opening has protection from sun and especially rain I would say that a wood door would work fine for you. However they will not hold
    up very well when exposed to the weather.

    In those cases I recommend fiberglass french doors. They come in the
    single lite layout and are available with removable wood inserts that
    give them a divided lite look. They are warrantied for at least 20 years
    so even though you don't get as many choices for styles they are a
    really good durable product.

    Hi Doorguy.
    Do you have any idea why it is so hard to find exterior/entry doors with clear glass that is not plain? I want to enjoy my view of the lake but don't want a plain-jane door.
