Entry Door Materials

The most notable choice to make when selecting a new entry door is what material your new door will be made of. You should consider several important factors such as climate, budget, hurricane impact resistance, and style.

Glass Doors

Many modern front doors are incorporating large glass panels. The contemporary styles make for a remarkable entryway, and because they are made from impact resistant glass, they are as safe as they are beautiful. Pivot doors are the latest trend in front door design, and they are offer extremely large openings while their pivot design keeps the weight manageable when opening and closing the door.

Fiberglass Doors

Fiberglass doors have become extremely popular as an entry door. They can look like a wooden door but will not show wear due to weathering. Fiberglass doors are consistent and will keep the same perfect seal regardless of temperature. Because of the popularity of the fiberglass door, virtually any style of door is available. Fiberglass can also be stained, just like a wooden door, providing more options for the appearance of color and texture.

Metal Doors

A metal door is the most affordable of the entry doors. They will also withstand a lot of wear and tear. While you cannot stain these doors, a fresh coat of paint will always help. Metal (steel) doors are also very energy-efficient and require little maintenance. Just because they are the more affordable choice does not mean that they look inexpensive. There are many options in metal entry doors that look amazing and help to define the style of the house.

Showcase Your Style

Your front door shows a lot about your personal style and sets the tone for the entire house. Choosing an entry door that enhances the style of the property is incredibly important and can greatly improve your home's curb appeal.

Hardware Selection

Hardware can be ordered separately from the door itself. The hardware is an important part of the overall style of the door and getting exactly what you want is important. Remember that measurement and accuracy is important. For this reason, professional installation is always a good idea. But the style of hardware that is available is almost endless. Different styles of hardware fit with particular architectural designs better than others. Many homeowners want a strong hinge and door handle made with stainless steel. Others are looking for a more traditional look. Regardless of your taste, remember that it needs to flow with the rest of your home.

Updating an Existing Entry Door

It is worth noting that there are improvements that can be made to get some new life out of existing doors. This includes the replacement of weather-stripping or adding a new coat of paint, or stain. You may also be able to save some money by only replacing the door slab instead of the whole unit. At the end of the day, when you look at the cost of a new installation that will last decades, you might find that the cost for something new is not out of reach. Updating projects tend to get expensive and oftentimes do not turn out as you expect. Make sure your update does not wind up costing more than installing a brand-new unit.

Entry Doors are a Good Investment

The entry door is a key focal point of the exterior of a home. A new entry door can give your house an updated appearance and add some significant curb appeal. Beyond just the appearance, a new entry door will add value to the property, giving you an eventual return on your investment. You will also be able to add energy efficiency to your house, saving money on heating and cooling costs each month. Before long, the door may pay for itself in energy savings. You will also be surprised at how many options are available at many different price points.
