posted on in Cleveland

So you’ve made the decision to replace your entry door, congratulations! You’re excited about a new look for your home’s entryway and you may have even had a few consultations with different companies. While making the choice to replace can be straightforward, making a choice in terms of what entry door you want is an entirely different story. Your entry door is the first impression your home makes on your guests and you want to be sure it makes exactly the right statement. Here are some examples of entry doors to showcase your personality.

Wood Entry Door

Wood entry doors are classic in the best way. Typically when you find a wood entry door, it’s paired with a more traditional looking home, though we have seen them pop-up on extremely trend-forward modern homes as well in a sort of ‘resurgence.' You’ll often see a lot of replacement wood entry doors in historical homes or homes in or close to historical districts. If this applies to your home, it can also be a good idea to see what rules your historical district has in place for home renovations.

Woodgrain Fiberglass Entry Door

Woodgrain-stained fiberglass entry doors have come a long way from their conception. While at one time homeowners may not have had many options in terms of style; fiberglass doors now have nearly endless options and can look amazing with nearly any home. This includes wood grain and wood stained fiberglass entry doors that even professionals are hard-pressed to tell the difference from true wood doors. Homeowners who opt for a wood grain and wood stain fiberglass entry door want the best of both worlds. They typically love the look of true wood but realize you have to put a lot of care and maintenance into a real wood door in order to keep them looking in tip-top shape. Woodgrain and wood stained fiberglass entry doors give homeowners the look of true wood but require extremely low maintenance and highly durable. Homeowners who take a lot of pride in their homes but who have busy lives will tend to gravitate towards these types of doors.
