Choosing the Perfect Entry Door

Your Entry Door is an invitation to friends and family, makes a strong first impression, and gives your  guests a good idea of the character of your space. Making sure your front door goes beyond the practical and reflects your unique style and sensibility is a great way to customize your home.

Before investing in your next Entry Door, here are a few things to keep in mind. The question of choosing the right entry door depends entirely on the needs of your home as well as your own personal taste.

Fiberglass entry doors are an energy-efficient, affordable, and low-maintenance choice for front doors. Fiberglass entry doors are available in a wide variety of prefinished colors and wood-look finishes that don’t require re-staining or painting.

For homeowners who prefer the authentic look of real wood entry doors, Fasada wood entry doors are crafted from beautiful rustic walnut or rich mahogany for a distinctive look with exceptional performance. Because wood is a natural material, a wood entry door is more inclined to expand or contract slightly with the heat and cold and will also require regular maintenance to keep looking and functioning its best.

Steel entry doors are extremely durable and offer homeowners strength and security. Pella steel entry doors can stand up to the elements and are available in a variety of low-maintenance colors and finishes.

Entry Door Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a top concern for homeowners when buying new or replacement entry doors. Energy-efficient fiberglass entry doors can stand up to extreme heat and cold. As a natural insulator with low conductivity, wood also makes an energy-efficient choice for entry doors.

Unique Exterior Door Customizations

In addition to the style and material selections available to you, there are other ways to personalize your entry door to best reflect your personal style and your home’s overall aesthetic. If you are looking to make your home’s exterior unique, consider a distinctive color choice, decorative glass, unique hardware finishes and other accessories.
