Things to Consider:
Your front entryway is one of the biggest style statements your home can make. So whether you’re building new or remodeling, you want to feel confident you’ve selected the perfect style for you. We provide products with such a wide variety of styles and configurations that you’re sure to find several that you love. How to choose? We’ll guide you through some of the style factors to consider in designing your new door.
Your Home Style
Is your house traditional or modern? Low Country or coastal? Every home has an architectural style, and one of the easiest ways to get a great-looking entry is to select a door that suits your home’s design characteristics. You may already know that you want a wood-grain finish in a mahogany stain to match your shutters. Or a smooth-finished door painted a pop of bright red to complement the ceramic flower pots that grace your porch.
Boost Curb Appeal
Although you may not be thinking about selling now, keep in mind that your new door may boost your home’s perceived value if you do decide to sell later.
Choosing a Durable Door
Kids, pets, and neighbors come and go all day long. Which means that when it comes to your new door, reliability and durability matters. Here are some of the factors you’ll want to consider when choosing a door.
The Fiberglass Difference
Fiberglass doors look like wood, but they don’t warp or rot like wood, or dent or rust like steel. In fact, a fiberglass door needs only a fraction of the maintenance wood and steel doors do. And the inside of a Therma-Tru fiberglass door is filled with an exceptional heat- and cold-resistant material that helps keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer.
Engineered to Work Together
More than just a beautiful door. It’s a complete door system made to perform as well as it looks. Unlike many door companies, we make or recommend every aspect – from the glass to the hinges – to ensure durability and reliability through the years.
Tested for Endurance
Go ahead and slam the door if you want. We did – over and over – to make sure our doors, glass, and parts live up to your toughest expectations. We expose them to extreme weather conditions. We roll heavy objects over our sills. We immerse parts with metal finishes in corrosive salt atmospheres. And we expose them to ultraviolet (UV) light to make sure our weather sealing parts and metal finishes can resist deteriorating and color fading in the sun.
Raise Your Glass
How you configure your entry is another way to control your level of privacy. Selecting a door style in which the glass is placed above eye-level is an option that welcomes light while limiting the view from outside. And if a solid door makes you feel even more secure, consider adding a transom (a horizontal window above the door) to your configuration to raise the glass even higher.
Security and Privacy Factors
Security and privacy are high on everyone’s list of priorities when selecting a door, but no one wants to sacrifice great style to achieve them. With our system, you don’t have to. Since your preferences might be different from your neighbor’s, you have many ways to customize your options. Here are some of the security and privacy factors you’ll want to consider as you design your new entry.
