Austin Front Doors

Find a Front Door that Offers a Warm Welcome

Austin is a city rich with culture, from world-renowned music to a vibrant restaurant culture. It has become one of the most sought after places to live in Texas, and the housing market reflects that, from the beautiful homes of Tarrytown to the historic homes of Barton Hills.

But regardless of the architectural style of your home, no house is complete without a front door that makes a lasting first impression. As the gateway into your home, front doors serve a small but significant function. They can create a warm and inviting welcome for your guests and increase the visual appeal of your home from the outside.

Commonly known as: main door, front door, entrance door

Popular Local Trends & Styles


  • Sidelights and windows on your white entry door Entry Doors with Glass

    Austin homeowners frequently pair their front doors with a glass element, from a window panel on the door to a sidelight on one or both sides of the door to a transom window overhead. Glass and steel are common elements of contemporary style, and together they can bring additional light into the entryway or create an especially striking look and feel.

  • Modern and contemporary doors Modern and Contemporary Doors

    The surge in the Austin real estate market over the last few years has seen more homeowners opting for modern and contemporary style homes, which call for equally modern and contemporary entry doors. These doors are characterized by a simple design, clean lines and minimalist hardware, and can be made from wood, fiberglass, steel or a combination of the three.

  • Wooden Front Doors Wooden Entry Doors

    Solid wood doors are as beautiful on contemporary homes as they are on traditional homes, affording them the benefit of universal appeal. Heat and humidity can have an impact on a solid wood front door, but Austin homeowners are still able to achieve the same look with lower maintenance by choosing a fiberglass front door with a wood-look finish.

  • screen door for your front door Screen Doors1 

    Screen doors are an ideal option for homeowners in warmer climates, allowing them to take advantage of the outdoors without bringing bugs into their homes. Screen doors can aid in ventilation during milder weather, inviting gentle breezes inside. Pella storm doors2 with Vivid View® screens allow 21% more airflow into your home than standard fiberglass screens.

Warning: Use caution when children or pets are around open windows and doors. Screens are not designed to retain children or pets.

2 Storm doors are not offered with wood entry doors. Adding a storm door to a wood entry door would void the warranty.

Austin Climate Recommendations


Technically classified as a humid subtropical climate, Austin occupies a unique area of Texas between the dry deserts of the Southwest and the more humid region of the Southeast. As a result, the area’s climate shares characteristics of both distinct regions. The summers are long and hot and the winters are short and mild. Anything in between is generally warm. Austin is prone to severe weather throughout the year, although most of it is concentrated in the spring. Severe weather can bring damaging winds, heavy rain, and even tornadoes.
