Nothing says “welcome to my home” more than a beautiful front door. While selecting the perfect door might seem daunting, given all the choices, it can be a fun process for a home exterior makeover.
There are several reasons to replace a front door, including upgrading the energy efficiency with an insulated and weather-stripped fiberglass entry door unit. Compared to wood and steel entry doors from decades ago, new residential, fiberglass doors are now constructed with durable components that create a water- and air-tight seal, ensuring that the home stays comfortable all year.
Sometimes a home just needs a facelift to bring it up to the 21st century, especially after decades of plain, six-panel doors. So, let’s take a look at the new trending door styles and how to find a door to match the architectural style for your clients.
Elevate Your Entryway
Shuster’s Building Components has been building attractive and durable doors that add value to residential entryways for over 50 years. With dooring options from steel to fiberglass, your clients will find something that fits their home.
Are your clients looking for a dooring option that is durable but doesn’t jeopardize their personal style? Shuster’s has the solution with its fiberglass dooring options. Homeowners typically prefer fiberglass dooring because of its ability to resist denting, splitting, cracking and warping. Shuster’s offers three fiberglass models, Belleville Fiberglass Door Collection, Modern Doors and VistaGrande which provide a variety of textures, finishes, panel designs and glass options.
We all know that steel dooring stands the test of time due to its security benefits. Masonite exterior doors are the perfect dooring solution for homeowners who want to have security benefits while incorporating their personal style. The HD Steel dooring options include a decorative panel profile that creates an appearance of a wood door but adds the extra security homeowners want.
No More Pains in Glass
With a clean, seamless design, Satin Etch glass allows soft light to filter into the home, while providing privacy and energy efficiency with triple-pane glass construction. This smooth or textured glass is perfect for architectural styles with a modern or contemporary flair, including Mid-Century Modern, Simple Barn, Contemporary Farmhouse or Urban Chic.
Make Your Entryway Pop
Adding a low-maintenance, stylish exterior trim around your door will certainly catch everyone’s eye and add significant curb appeal to the home. Create an authentic look that matches your client’s door with a woodgrain surround design, reflecting the architectural style of the home.
The front entry door not only accentuates the architectural style of the home, but it also provides the opportunity to get creative for your clients.
