Your entry door can be the focal point of your home’s façade and increase curb appeal. By making careful decisions about the material, style, configuration and glass options for your entry door system, you can add a feature to your home that is personalized and distinct. Here are some tips to consider:

1. Material

Whether you crave the classic look of wood or the sturdiness of steel, the material you choose for your entry door will affect the overall aesthetic of your entry door system. We offer entry doors in custom wood and fibreglass, premium fibreglass, and steel, each with its own strengths and personality. There are many design options available for each material allowing you to create a memorable first impression.

First choose your door material – wood, fiberglass or steel.

2. Style

There are several components to consider when choosing the style of your entry door. Are you looking for a solid panel door, or a door with a glass insert? There are many door styles to choose from, and with each, an assortment of cut-out options. Do you want a 2-panel or 3-panel door, a sunburst or segmental cutout? With JELD-WEN, you don’t have to settle—we give you options to design an entry door you can call your own.

Door configuration might be the most crucial step in defining the look of your door. Whether you need a double door for increased accessibility, or an out-swing door to create space, JELD-WEN gives you the options for the function you require. For more natural light, surround your entranceway with decorative sidelites and transoms. Let us help you choose from a wide variety of entry door configurations to satisfy your style.
