Thinking about front door replacement? Or, are you wondering which door is right for your home? Then, check out our guide on how to choose an entry door.
Things to Consider When Choosing an Entry Door
To ensure you’re choosing the right entry door for your home, you must think about both form and function. In other words, how do you want the door to look, and how do you want it to work?
Design and Material
In terms of style, you should consider the door’s material, color, and design. Ultimately, this boils down to personal preference, and you have many options.
Lifespan of the Door
Then, you need to consider the lifespan of the door. Next, it’s important to choose a door that can withstand the elements of your climate. You also have to think about energy efficiency and choose a door that doesn’t allow unwanted hot or cold air into or out of your home.
Types of Entryway Doors
There are several different styles of entryway doors. Once you understand what features you’d like in an exterior door, you should think about the style of door you want.
Fibreglass Entryway Doors
Fibreglass doors are a great option, as they are built to last. They come in a wide range of styles, including French and farmhouse. In addition, you can opt for solid fibreglass or easily add glass windows or side windows.
These doors’ material and insulated frames can boost your home’s energy efficiency while improving your home’s security by being extremely durable.
Steel Exterior Doors
Steel doors are ideal for applications where you want a lot of security, but they can also enhance the style of your home or business. These doors can be completely made of steel, but like fibreglass doors, they can also be designed with built-in windows. You can go for an industrial steel look, or you can opt for a painted or wood-finish design.
Vinyl Patio Doors
As all of our doors, our vinyl patio doors are 100% Canadian made so you can rest assured they can withstand the elements of our climate.
