    Hi Everyone,
    I'm looking to replace my aging (and crumbling) French doors with folding doors. I was curious if anyone has any real world feedback on the type of material I should be looking for?

    I would prefer to avoid PVC, but on the same side I am weary of veneer - will it hold up against leaks over time? Aluminum is probably out of my price range but one can hope right? :)

    On a side note, which one would ideally protect against burglars? I've read some reviews of the veneer doors @ Wicks and noticed a few people complaining about poor lock quality.

    Any advice appreciated!
