  • Modern entry door with flat simulated light divided grilles Contemporary Style

    Contemporary-style homes are trending upward across Little Rock — and a contemporary home calls for a contemporary front door. Defined by a simple design, clean lines, and minimalist hardware, contemporary front doors can be built from wood, glass, steel or any combination of the three. Black windows frames and doors are a staple of today’s contemporary style.

  • Wooden Front Doors Wooden Front Doors

    Wood front doors are more common with traditional-style homes but have become a popular choice among owners of contemporary homes as well. In places like Little Rock, where the climate can often bring heat and humidity, the harsh conditions can affect a solid wood door. For a similar look but with lower maintenance, consider a fiberglass door with a wood-look finish.

  • Glass Front Doors with Sidelights or Transoms 3/4 Light Entry Doors

    One of the most sought-after front doors in Little Rock is the ¾ light entry door. Built from durable fiberglass or steel, these doors are low-maintenance and offer the authentic appearance of wood through a unique VividGrain™ stain process. Entry doors with ¾ light glass would feel right at home in the Heights, where the streets are lined with historic homes.

Short and cool winters offer a brief respite from the warm temperatures that persist nearly all year round. Little Rock is subject to more precipitation than the national average, particularly during the spring months, when a prolonged period of heavy rainfall can be expected through March, April, and May.

Frequently Asked Questions


  •   What factory-prefinished stain and paint colors are available on Pella products?
    • Wood Windows and Patio Doors – Wood interiors offer more design flexibility — windows and patio doors can be stained or painted to match your decor.  Explore the interior and exterior finish options available for Pella's wood products.

      As part of Pella Corporation’s commitment to environmentally-friendly practices, we use Water-Based Green Chemistry. Our factory-applied stain is water-based, which significantly decreases the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted into the air.

      Fiberglass Windows and Patio Doors – Available in colors offering the quality look of painted wood — including a dual-color option. Explore the interior and exterior finish options available for Pella's fiberglass products.

      Vinyl Windows and Patio Doors – Pella's unique vinyl formula is performance-tested for excellent weathering, durability, and color retention. Solid- and Dual-Color frames are available. Explore the interior and exterior finish options available for Pella's vinyl products.

  •   How do I choose the right paint or stain for my wood windows and doors?
    • Stained Wood Interior Finish – Pella strongly recommends the use of a good-quality pre-stain wood conditioner before staining Pella windows and patio doors to reduce the possibility of a blotchy-looking, uneven finish. Ask your paint or finishing professional to recommend a pre-stain wood conditioner, a stain and a finishing coat that are compatible.

      Painted Wood Interior Finish – The most important consideration to make when choosing your paint is good blocking resistance — the ability of a paint to resist sticking. Failure to use a high-quality paint with good blocking resistance may result in a window or door that sticks shut, even after the paint has dried. Ask your qualified paint professional to recommend a paint with good blocking resistance. Don't simply rely on a paint's price or brand name in making your selection. Expensive paint may not necessarily offer good blocking resistance. Also, ask your paint professional to recommend a wood primer and paint that are compatible and whether sanding is required between coats of paint.

      Explore the factory pre-finish options available for Pella's wood products.

  •   Which Pella doors are available with SmartKey® Technology?
    • SmartKey Technology is available, and comes standard, on Pella's fiberglass and steel entry doors.  Architect Series® sliding, French and hinged patio doors with hardware from the Rustic, Classic or Modern Collection will have SmartKey Technology.

      Learn more about Pella's hardware collections and how to use SmartKey Technology.

  •   Where can I get paint or stain to match the interior and exterior of my Pella products?
    • Paints and stains for Pella products are available in quarts and gallons via special order through Lowe's stores or your local Pella Window and Door Showroom. You will need to provide the color of the paint or stain that you need to place an order.

      Or you may take the color or stain desired along with the substrate you are trying to match to your local Sherwin-Williams® or home improvement store and have them custom match the color.

      If you don't have a Pella paint chip or just need a small bottle of touch up paint or stain for dings and scratches, submit a request to Pella Corporation's customer support team or call (877) 473-5527 for further assistance.

      Be sure to consult with your local paint or finish store representative or professional to help address your specific finishing needs and review the Finishing section of your Pella Owner's Manual for details about how to properly finish your Pella products.

  •   How much does an entry door cost?

      NOTES:  

      • For a professional-looking painted finish, it's important to use a quality brush or spray technique. Contact your local paint professional for recommendations.
      • Installation of a steel entry door within five miles of a seacoast is not recommended due to the risk of corrosion, and it will void Pella's steel entry door warranty.

      Be sure to consult with your local paint or finish store representative or professional to help address your specific finishing needs and review the Finishing section of the Pella Entry Door Owner's Manual for details about how to properly finish your Pella entry door.

  •   What do I need to know about finishing or refinishing my entry door?
    • Before finishing your entry door system, you must know whether your entry door panel and sidelights are fiberglass or steel. If you're unsure if your entry door is made of fiberglass or steel, place a magnet on your door — if it sticks, it's most likely steel.

      Your Pella packaging and sales invoice should also indicate the door type. Check with your Pella representative for specific information on your product. Visit the Pella Help Library for finishing tips.

  •   How do I stain my fiberglass entry door?
    • If you desire a stained wood appearance on your wood-grain fiberglass door panels, sidelights, and glass frames, apply gel stain and clear finish according to the manufacturer's directions. For best results, always apply stain in the direction of the grain. Be sure to finish door edges.

      Visit the Pella Help Library for staining tips.

  •   How do I paint my fiberglass entry door?
    • If you're going to paint your entry door panel, be sure to ask a qualified paint or finishing professional to recommend a paint with good blocking resistance. Don't rely on a paint's price or brand name in making your selection — an expensive paint may not necessarily offer good blocking resistance. Failure to use a high-quality paint with good blocking resistance may result in a door that sticks shut even after the paint has dried.

      Once you have the right paint, promptly paint all exterior surfaces, including door panel edges, with two coats of quality exterior paint with good blocking resistance. Then paint all interior surfaces with two coats of quality interior paint with good block resistance.

      NOTE: Applying thick layers of paint may hide the texture of the door panel.

      1. Stir paint well.
      2. Wet only the tip of the brush, and apply one thin coat. Brush in the direction of the grain.
      3. Apply paint to various door components first, such as the door edges, brickmould, jambs, mullions, glazing frames and wood frames. Then paint the panel.
      4. Clean brush.
      5. Wait at least six hours between each coat application of the paint. Finish must be completely dry before applying the next coat. Do not sand between coats.
      6. Repeat Steps 1–4 for each additional coat applied.

      NOTE: A primer may be necessary to get proper adhesion. Contact your local paint supplier to determine if a primer is necessary with the selected paint.

      CAUTION: Finish all exposed door panel edges, including the top edge. This helps reduce the chance of warping. After finishing the entry door system, allow the door to dry completely, in accordance with the paint manufacturer’s directions, before closing it.

      Be sure to consult with your local paint or finish store representative or professional to help address your specific finishing needs and review the Finishing section of the Pella Entry Door Owner's Manual for details about how to properly finish your Pella entry door. 

      Get complete warranty details for your entry door, including exceptions and limitations.
