Waterloo Front Doors

Front Doors that are as Practical as They are Stylish

Home styles in Northeastern Iowa include traditional ranch style homes, original farmhouses, modern new construction, and almost everything in between. Getting a new front door for your home can dramatically update the exterior of an existing home, boosting curb appeal and creating a welcoming entranceway. It can also help control your heating and cooling costs during Iowa’s seasonal weather extremes. Commonly known as: main door, entry door, entrance door, exterior front doors

Popular Local Trends & Styles

Front Doors with Glass and Sidelights

Another popular style is the 6-window front door — to get the look, pair a European ¾ light door with contoured simulated-divided light grilles to mimic the look of individual panes. For a more modern look, consider a flush-glazed full light door with 3-½” flat simulated-divided-light grilles. This gives the look of a 3- or 4-window front door. Front doors with sidelights are another popular option in Iowa. Sidelights allow even more light into the home and look great accompanying both solid panel doors and doors with half or full light glass.

Black Front Doors

Contemporary style is growing in popularity in Iowa. Clean, simple lines and dark colors reflect a contemporary architectural style. Dark colors, like a black front door, look especially striking in a modern setting. Black front doors also set a beautiful contrast next to lighter home exteriors but can complement almost any siding, brick, or stone. In addition to dark color and sleek lines, homeowners are choosing minimalistic doors and hardware, often including blocked or square raised panels or panes of frosted glass

Wood-look Front Doors

Wood-look doors made from fiberglass feature a distinctive style that is popular with homeowners. Wood-look entry doors can match almost any look from contemporary to Craftsman, Mission, or Prairie. These doors offer the look of real wood with a low-maintenance mahogany-grain fiberglass stained in a rich color to match the look of true wood. Red Mahogany is a popular stain color for Waterloo homes.

Storm and Screen Doors*

A storm door can help to protect your entry door from the elements — keeping snow from accumulating on and directly in front of your door in the winter. Storm doors typically double as screen doors as well, allowing you to open your main entry door in fair weather, inviting the breeze inside. You can get storm doors with interchangeable glass panels and screens or an adjustable screen.

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

Waterloo Climate Recommendations

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Door glass with Low-E glass can help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and keeping the heat in.

Winter Weather (or Cold Weather)

Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Help protect your door from the elements with a storm door from Pella.
