- Steel doors have been around for a long time, and they are the most economical doors available on the market. The ability to sustain protection in all climates is one thing a steel door has going for it. Upkeep is for the door is minimal, and the best part of the steel door is strength and durability baked into every door. As a basic door, it is a tableau for design enhancements like sidelites or glass transom inserts.
Fibreglass doors are compatible with many design elements like lights or decorative doorknockers, and they also come without them to suit your project. The great thing about fibreglass doors is that they can be finished to look like a wood door at a fraction of the cost and still showcase a faux wood door’s beauty. Fibreglass as a material is impervious to the weather/climate and requires limited if no maintenance once installed.
In keeping with tradition, a wood door has a history as long as doors have been used as entranceways. A handcrafted door is one way to say style, and a solid wood door is stunning to the eye. Maintenance for wood doors is one thing that will need the attention of a homeowner. Painting or staining a wood door every two years will keep the door in excellent condition, and the attention paid will keep the door from splitting or warping. If you are thinking about a wood door as your primary entrance, you need some type of overhang or porch roof to prevent weather and climate from taking a toll on the door.
Whether you choose a double door or s single door, you can add features that will make your entranceway look bigger than it is or use the sidelites as a decorative item to make your door stand out. Adding extra glass to the door can brighten up your foyer, adding natural light to the equation to set-off the doorway and principal entrance that is your front door.
- Door swing
Doors can come in two different swings, one that swings in and one that swings out. In most cases, most homeowners prefer a swing-in door, but a door that swings out can be installed to accommodate a need that a homeowner requires.
- By handing
This is a left/right scenario that is dictated by the position of the hinges. If the hinges are on the left side of the doorjamb and swing in from a front view, it is a left-handed door. If the hinges are on the right side of the doorjamb and it opens to the right, it is considered a right-handed door. Why is this important? It is a space issue, and you want to take advantage of your available space and create an opening that will be wide enough to accommodate entry.
- Door panels
Panels and glass inserts will make your entryway spectacular for a limited investment when selecting this design option. You can have a complete panel door or one with panels and glass that add to the charm of your home.
- Glass choices
You can add impact-resistant glass to any door that you install, and it can be treated with a Low-E coating to repel UV rays from bleaching floors or furniture when the sun shines through the glass. You can have three distinct glass styles and come in decorative glass, blinds in between glass panes or textured glass to suit your design requirements.
- Prehung doors and door slabs
A door slab is just what it says, a one-piece door. A prehung door comes with a frame and hardware and is pre-fabricated to fit your entrance dimensions. If you have a solid doorframe, all you need is a slab door, but a complete replacement might be needed to preserve your entranceway if there is rot in the frame.
