Your front door welcomes friends and family, entices passersby, and protects your home from the elements. It’s important that your doors suit your style, fit the architectural design of your house, and are durable.
Houston has a humid subtropical climate and experiences frequent rainfall, so your door should be able to withstand this weather. Pella’s fiberglass and steel entry doors offer exceptional durability.
Fiberglass is a durable, low-maintenance option that holds up well against inclement weather. It doesn’t swell and contract like wood, making it harder to shut, or rust and bend over time. It is also more energy-efficient than other options, helping your home stay comfortable all year round.
Fiberglass doors are also more versatile than most other door styles. They can be painted with a pop of color to fit your home’s aesthetic, or left as is for a classic look. They can also be textured to look more natural, for a door that’s indistinguishable from wood but has none of the drawbacks.
Some of the most popular fiberglass doors are full-view models, which feature a large glass insert that accounts for most of the surface area. These are ideal for homes that would benefit from lots of natural light in their entryway. They are also available in 3/4 view models, which offer a little more privacy but still allow for plenty of sunlight.
Steel doors and frames are popular for commercial construction due to their durability, security, fire resistance and availability. They are available in single or double door configurations with solid core wood or engineered options. These commercial doors are also available with decorative fan lites and 15-lite units.
Steel exterior doors can be made from hollow or solid core materials, and they have different finishes and thicknesses. Hollow steel doors have a metal shell with an interior filled with insulation to give them added strength and thermal efficiency. Solid-core steel doors are thicker and stronger than hollow steel doors, but they can still be made to look beautiful.
Marc Made Doors offers a variety of residential steel front doors that can be used for many purposes. They are ideal for homeowners who want to improve the curb appeal of their home and add some security. These doors are also energy efficient and offer a stylish appearance that will increase the value of your home.
The city of Houston is a popular place to live due to its year-round warm weather, thriving economy and cultural diversity. As new residents move to the area, many homeowners are choosing to upgrade their entryway by replacing their front doors.
There are many styles of wood doors to choose from. Knotted alder wood has perfect close knots and a tight wood grain, which can complement many traditional homes. White pine wood has a beautiful color with a tight wood grain that can also enhance a rustic style.
Homeowners who prefer a more modern look can opt for doors with glass elements, including a single door panel or overhead transom window, on one or both sides of the door. These doors let in natural light, which can make your home feel more open and spacious. They’re also a great choice for curb appeal, as they can add a pop of color to your entryway.
Whether you live in a ranch-style home in River Oaks, a mid-century bungalow in Memorial Bend or a new construction in the Heights, your front door is a big part of your home’s look.
