Common Questions About Entry Doors

If you’re thinking about replacing your entry door, chances are you have at least a few concerns – and rightly so. Your entryway is the focal point of your northern Utah home, after all, and you want to make sure everyone who sees it has a great first impression.

Talking to a local professional is the best way to get expert advice on entry doors, and by scheduling a free consultation with the Rocky Mountain team, you can get precise answers to all of your questions. However, there are a few explanations we can offer right here.

What Types of Entryways Are Available?

Manufacturers offer dozens of styles, including single and double entry doors and models with sidelights and glass accents. And, by choosing a different finish, unique hardware and interesting decorative elements, you can personalize the appearance of your entryway.

Which Entry Door Material is Best?

When it comes to design flexibility and energy efficiency, fiberglass is considered to be one of the best options. That said, front doors made of steel, composite wood, and other materials can be smart choices – and the right material for your entryway depends upon your needs.

Which Direction Should Entry Doors Swing?

Most northern Utah homeowners choose a front door that swings inward, but that’s not the universally recommended option. An outswing door can be better when the interior entryway space is lacking, and some people prefer an outward swing for security reasons.

Where Should You Get Your Entry Doors?

Look for a local door supplier with a team of licensed and insured professional contractors and extensive experience in entryway installation. And, make sure the company you choose offers high-quality products with warranty coverage and a satisfaction guarantee.

How Much Does a New Entryway Cost?

Every project is unique, and costs vary depending upon door construction and the difficulty in installation. To get an idea of how much you’ll need to spend to get the entryway you want, you’ll need to get estimates from a few local Utah door suppliers.

How Long Does Entryway Installation Take?

Most professional contractors can replace an entryway in a single day, often in just a few hours. For complex projects and those involving the installation of multiple doors, however, getting the job done right may take a little longer.
