Common Types of Entry DoorsSteel – Steel entry doors offer excellent resistance against weather and are easy to maintain. They are also energy-efficient and come in various customization options. Fiberglass – One of the most cost-effective options on the market, fiberglass doors can either have a smooth surface or a wood-grain texture. Like steel doors, they are low-maintenance and also excel in resisting wear and tear. You can have them painted or stained. Wood – A wood entry door will make your home’s exterior look more luxurious. Wood exterior doors are less likely to dent and can withstand weather extremes. If you live in an area that experiences harsh weather events, consider getting hurricane windows along with your new entry door. Vinyl – Vinyl doors are easy to maintain and don’t require painting, staining or refinishing. Multi-chambered frames and fully welded sashes increase strength and durability. They also usually cost less than other materials. Customize Your Entry DoorColors and finishes – Make sure to choose an exterior door color that complements the rest of your home’s exterior. Today’s exterior doors are available in a wide range of colors and finishes to complement every home. Sidelights and transoms – They come in various shapes and sizes. Sidelights and transoms can bring more natural light into your home and increase its curb appeal. Glass options – Consider decorative glass for added style, privacy and natural light. Modern window and door glass options often have special coatings that block harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation while allowing natural light indoors. Hardware – Door hardware can be both stylish and functional. They are available in beautiful finishes that you can match with other decorative finishes in your home like light fixtures.
