Replacement Entry Door Designs

You have countless design options for your new front door. You can choose a single or double door style and add sidelites on one or both sides. You can add glass in the door, to let the light shine in or add a glass transom above.

Choose from contemporary, traditional, craftsman, rustic and modern, minimalistic designs. Take your pick from straight or arched top styles and choose the hardware that works best with your home’s design.

If you live in a community with a homeowners’ association, you likely have to obtain design review approval for changing the exterior of your home. Similarly, if you live in a designated historic neighborhood, check to determine whether you need city approval for your replacement door’s design and finish.

Entry Door Materials & Finish

As many design options as you have to choose from, you have at least that many material and finish options.

Fiberglass, steel and wood are the traditional material choices. You can also choose a wood door with aluminum cladding on the exterior. This provides the natural beauty of wood on the interior while eliminating the maintenance requirements on the exterior.

Choose a model that comes prefinished from the factory or have your new door painted or stained to match your existing color scheme.
