Entry Doors: Which One is Right for Your Home?

Your front door gives people the first impression of your home. Changing out your entry door gives you a quick and dramatic curb-appeal upgrade in Northern Virginia and can make a great deal of difference when it comes to the style of your home. Whether you need a replacement door because yours isn’t functioning properly or you’re interested in upgrading materials or adding windows for more light, you have quite a few options.

Of course everyone desires to have a beautiful front door, but the function of your entry door isn’t something you should forget. Your front door should be able to withstand the weather in Northern Virginia and be tough enough to keep your home protected. The good news is that you have the ability to have the best of both worlds—beauty and function—no matter which door material you pick. Speaking of door materials, let’s talk about the basics of each choice: wood, steel and fiberglass.

Wood Entry Doors

Wood doors are a stunning classic. No matter what your style is, there’s a wood door for your project. They can be easy to maintain and have the ability to hold up for a very long time in the Northern Virginia climate.

Steel Entry Doors

Steel doors provide a great choice for a variety of high-end styles. Not to mention that a lot of the time they can be a very affordable selection.
