Front entry doors are the first thing visitors see when they enter your home, so you need yours to stand out. Make a good first impression with a front entry door from Wellington Windows and Doors.
Wellington proudly partners with Palma Door Systems to provide customized doors that improve your curb appeal. Most of the doors we offer are either fiberglass or steel. Both provide unique benefits that might help you decide which one is right for you.
Fiberglass entry doors are renowned for their longevity and versatility. They come in a huge array of styles and colors, making them easy to personalize for your home. And because they slightly contract and expand as the temperature changes, they are extremely energy efficient and help keep climate-controlled air inside your home.
The main benefit of steel entry doors is security. While they lack some of the personalization of a fiberglass door, they are extremely secure, which is important if you want peace of mind. Additionally, steel entry doors are far more efficient than a typical wooden door, providing you extra cost savings on your utility bills.
Once you nail down the type of front door you want, you’ll need to start thinking about the door glass and the door style.
One of the main considerations when choosing a front entry door is whether or not you want any door glass panels. These can provide quick visibility when answering the door and let in a soft infusion of natural light to brighten your entryway.
Textured glass provides light while adding visual interest. Additionally, it’s cloudy enough to prevent lurkers from seeing inside your home until you open the door. Clear glass adds a more traditional feel, and it can look great if you have side panels or a transom.
There are many ways to position door glass. You might want a large center panel in the middle of the door, a smaller panel in the upper third of the door, or even rows of panels going down the door.
Deciding on the style of door you prefer is also crucial. This all comes down to personal preference, as all of the styles listed below offer excellent functionality and protection.
