How To Choose An Exterior Door

When the time has come for you to replace your exterior door, it can become overwhelming to select the perfect new door for your home! The options are endless when it comes to style, material selection and more. If you’re struggling with not knowing how to select the perfect exterior door for your home, the experts at Quality Home Improvements can help! We’ve broken the process down into 4 easy steps:

Decide If You Want To Change Your Door Configuration

There are many different options when it comes to door configurations and deciding what option works best for your home can help narrow down the door selection process. Does your current door configuration satisfy you or are you looking for something new? Will you keep the sidelite or turn your exterior door into an oversized one? Do you prefer a double door or single door? 2 sidelites or perhaps 1 oversized sidelite? Consider these questions when it comes to selecting your door configuration.

Steel Or Fiberglass Door?

Now that you have decided how you’d like your exterior door configuration to be, it’s time to determine the material of your door. Steel and fiberglass are the most popular materials for doors, with steel doors typically being more affordable, and fiberglass doors giving off a classy wood appearance. Your trusted home improvement experts can provide you more details on the types of door materials they offer and the pros and cons of each.

Decide If You Want To Add Glass To Your Exterior Door

Doors that have a solid design have a number of different options and typically pair well with sidelites. Doors with glass have an even more abundant amount of options and allow you to get creative with the appearance of your exterior door. You can choose the glass from catalogues, design your own, change the positioning of them as well as change the number of glass inserts. The choices are endless!

Select The Colour Of Your Door And Door Handle

The last thing that needs to be determined is usually the most fun part, and that is which colour you would like your exterior door and door handle to be! White is often a classic colour that many people like to go for, but if you are looking for a door with character, you can go for something bold like red, yellow, green, blue and more! Your door handle will also act a finishing touch to your exterior door, so it is important to carefully select the style and colour of handle that works best for your home’s appearance. Even though the door handle seems like a small part, it can drastically change the look of your door and home.
