Looking For Inexpensive Exterior French Doors - Suppliers?


I'm looking for a set of inexpensive exterior french doors for a nice garden shed I'm building. HO wants 48 inch opening (std height). HD & my local supplier are coming in @ $400 - $ 480 for steel flush faced doors (acceptable to HO).

Anyone know of suppliers with better prices?

TIA

sometimes suppliers and box stores have bins with stuff that was miss ordered or not picked up that you can get a deal on

Thanks, but I tried that route. The problem is that 48 inch wide french exterior doors are a non-standard item - thus none of the discount / overstock places nearby have them.

That actually sounds pretty good for new steel faced doors. While 'inexpensive' and 'nice' don't usually go hand-in-hand, some of the fiberglass french doors look decent - especially for a shed - and should run quite a bit less.
