How to Select the Right Front Entry Door for New Construction Homes

A front entry door is the first thing visitors notice when they come to a home. It's also a way to make a good first impression and increase curb appeal.

Front doors are available in a number of styles and materials, such as fiberglass, wood and steel. With so many options for this important feature of new construction homes, how do your clients know which one is best for them?

We'll review what these front door styles have to offer, making the process easier for your clients so they can make a good first impression in their new neighborhood.

Front Doors with Glass

Front doors with glass are popular for new construction homes. They complement an extensive range of architectural styles, including traditional, contemporary and farmhouse. Light and privacy can be customized by choosing varying amounts of glass on the door, transom and sidelights.

Our front entry doors with glass are offered in fiberglass and wood styles.

Fiberglass Front Doors with Glass

Fiberglass front doors are resilient, low maintenance and energy efficient. They never need painting or staining because the color is fused into the fiberglass material itself. This makes them a great choice for clients who want rich color with minimal upkeep.

Wood Front Doors with Glass

Wood front doors provide warmth, design flexibility and exceptional energy efficiency. Your clients can customize theirs to flatter their one-of-a-kind home style, selecting mahogany or walnut, in addition to glass options, grilles, hardware and more. We complete our wood doors with a translucent stain that protects the finish while allowing natural wood grains to shine through.

Solid Front Doors

Solid front doors offer privacy, security and insulation. They're durable and complement a wide variety of home styles, from traditional to contemporary and modern.

Our solid front doors can be customized in fiberglass, wood and steel.

Solid Fiberglass Front Doors

Fiberglass doors have the appearance and feel of real wood but are much lower maintenance. Your clients can choose from a variety of finishes, including wood grain or smooth, which flatters contemporary and modern homes. A fiberglass door also provides outstanding durability, since it naturally resists rot, rust and dents. It also won't expand and contract as the seasons change.

Solid Wood Front Doors

Wood front doors enhance curb appeal through their beauty and character, making them a smart choice for a variety of home styles. Your clients can choose from several panel styles, plus a large selection of door options like accessories and hardware.

Solid Steel Front Doors

Steel doors offer extra protection plus weather resistance and energy efficiency. This kind of durable door is low maintenance since its frame resists rot and won't absorb moisture. Its streamlined appearance makes it a good option for a modern or contemporary house.
