Seattle Entry Door & Front Door Replacement & Installation

Entry doors serve as both the welcoming focal point of your home and a critical barrier, blending aesthetics and security to make a lasting first impression while ensuring peace of mind.

Basics of Front Door Styles

The styles of front doors available today are as diverse as the homes they secure, ranging from traditional to contemporary and everything in between.

Classic Doors

Often feature wood finishes with ornate details, such as paneling and glass inserts, invoking a timeless elegance.

Contemporary Doors

Lean towards clean lines, minimalist features, and innovative materials like fiberglass and steel, offering a sleek, modern look.

Rustic Doors

Bring warmth and character with rugged textures and natural finishes, ideal for country or cottage-style homes. Additionally, the growing trend of smart doors incorporates advanced technologies for enhanced security and convenience, reflecting the evolving needs of the modern homeowner.

Front Door Materials

Choosing the right material for your front door is crucial for the aesthetics, durability, and security of your home. Each material offers unique advantages:

Fiberglass

  • Durability: Fiberglass doors are known for their resilience against warping, denting, and rusting, making them ideal for harsh or humid climates.

  • Energy Efficiency: With excellent insulation properties, fiberglass doors help maintain indoor temperature, contributing to energy savings.

  • Low Maintenance: These doors require minimal upkeep, retaining their appearance without the need for frequent painting or staining.

Steel

  • Security: Steel doors offer superior strength and durability, providing a high level of security against intrusions.

  • Cost-Effective: They are generally more affordable than other materials, offering good value for homeowners looking for quality on a budget.

  • Energy Efficiency: Steel doors often come with foam core insulation, making them effective at keeping heat in during winter and out during summer.

Fiberglass with Woodgrain Finish

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Fiberglass doors with a woodgrain finish combine the durability of fiberglass with the classic beauty of wood, offering a visually appealing entrance without the maintenance demands of real wood.

  • Low Maintenance: Unlike genuine wood doors, these fiberglass doors resist warping, rotting, and denting, maintaining their elegant appearance with minimal upkeep.

  • Energy Efficiency: These doors are engineered with insulating cores and precise fitting frames, effectively reducing energy transfer. This ensures your home remains comfortable while potentially lowering heating and cooling costs.

Wood

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Wood doors add natural beauty and elegance to any home, offering a warm and inviting entrance.

  • Customization: They can be easily customized in terms of size, style, and finish to match your home’s décor.

  • Considerations: While wood doors are unmatched in beauty and versatility, they require more maintenance than fiberglass or steel, including regular painting or staining to protect against the elements.
