Entrance door is the gateway to your home and can have a big impact on the first impression your home makes. It makes a statement about who you are and sets the tone for what people can expect when they walk into your home.

Beyond aesthetics, your front and/or rear entry door can have an impact on your home’s energy bills. Replacing your entry door with an energy-efficient model can improve your energy efficiency as much as 10 percent, and improve security and value of your home!  There are several things you should consider when choosing an entry door: location, size, material, and more.

Choosing an Entry Door: Location

Location of your entry door should factor into your purchasing decision. As you likely know, southern facing areas experience more sunlight and the negative effects it can bring. If your door faces south, you will want to consider avoiding darker colored doors, as those will absorb more heat than lighter colors, which can cost you on your energy bills!

Choosing an Entry Door: Size

If you are looking for a simple door upgrade, your door size is going to be limited by the size of your existing door. You can certainly change what is there already and add a door system with more features and enhanced aesthetics, but this may require a more complex and expensive door replacement project.

Choosing an Entry Door: Material

Entry doors come in a variety of materials, each with their own set of benefits and features. At EconoShield Windows & Doors, we primarily focus on two door materials: fiberglass and steel.

Years ago, if you wanted to give your entry door the look of wood, your only choice was a wooden door. Today, advances in door manufacturing technology have allowed both steel and fiberglass doors to have realistic wood finishes, without the drawbacks of a real wooden door.

Choosing an Entry Door: Door Elements

Modern doors are no longer just a single mass of steel, wood, or fiberglass with a door knob. Today’s doors are manufactured with a number of decorative and energy efficient features that bring beauty, energy efficiency, and added security to your home. If you want lots of natural light, consider adding sidelites. To have a better control over the natural light, you can add mini blinds to your door. If you prefer a decorative finish, choose from dozens of glass finishes.

No matter what your needs or wants are, and whether you are looking for a steel, fiber glass, garden door or a sliding patio door, at EconoShield Windows & Doors we have just the right door for you!
