Buffalo Front Doors

Pella Front Doors offer Style and Customizations

Your home’s front door does more than provide safety from the elements, it can serve as an extension of your home’s style and history. And Western New York is rich with cultural and architectural history—from the influence of Frederick Law Olmsted in neighborhoods like Parkside and Maplewood to the historic Susan B. Anthony house in Rochester and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Martin House in Buffalo. The history of this area brings with it homes in a range of styles, including many Queen Anne, Craftsman, and Italianate styles. Create a welcoming first impression to guests and passersby with a Pella entry door.

Popular Local Trends & Styles


  • Entry Door with Glass Entry Doors with Glass

    A front door with glass in the upper third is a hallmark of Craftsman style. This is often paired with sidelights, a window framing one or both sides of the front door. Unique window shapes or artful stained glass are a good indicator you’re looking at a Victorian front door, like many of the homes in Rochester’s Corn Hill neighborhood. Whether you’re looking to maintain the architectural integrity of your home or you simply want to let in more light to the entry hall, entry doors with glass are a great option.

  • storm doors Storm Doors

    Storm doors1 are popular in areas like Western New York that experience all four seasons. In addition to protecting your front door from precipitation and extremes in temperature, storm doors help homeowners enjoy the weather in milder seasons. Often featuring glass or screen2 panels that are interchangeable or retractable, a storm door allows sunshine and gentle breezes into your home while keeping pesky bugs out.

  • Wooden Front Doors Wooden Front Doors

    Wooden entry doors are common features of traditional homes and remain a popular choice for many homeowners across the board. Traditional craftsman front doors, like those seen on homes in Buffalo’s Elmwood neighborhood, are made of solid wood. Pella offers both rustic walnut and mahogany entry doors in a variety of styles to suit your home. If you’d prefer to have a fiberglass door but enjoy the look of real wood, consider one of Pella’s wood-look finishes.

  • Custom Front Doors Custom Front Doors 

    Create a custom front door that suits the style of you and your home. Pella front doors are built-to-order in standard and custom sizes, so you can be sure to find the size and style you’re looking for. Whether you want a traditional or contemporary front door, a solid wood door or one made of fiberglass, or a colorful blue, red, or black front door, with so many size, style, and finish options, the combinations are nearly limitless.
