Houston Front Doors

Contemporary Front Doors for Houston Homes

Your front door welcomes family and friends and enchants passersby. It helps protect your home from heat and rain. Made from wood, steel, or fiberglass, entry doors can set the tone for the rest of your home.

Contemporary homes are a common sight throughout Houston, from minimalist ranch homes to modern two-story beauties. Whether a Mid-century charmer in Memorial Bend or new construction in The Woodlands, create a striking entrance with a Pella front door that complements the style of you and your home.

Commonly known as: main door, entry door, entrance door, exterior front doors

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Glass front doors with Sidelights Front Doors with Glass

    Steel and glass are core elements of contemporary style, so it’s fitting to include glass with your contemporary front door. Pair front doors with a glass element—whether a window panel on the door, a sidelight on one or both sides of the door, or a transom window overhead—to bring additional light into the entryway. Sidelights framing single or double entry doors can be especially striking on more modern homes.

  • Screen and Storm Doors Screen Doors

    In warmer climates, front screen doors1 are a great option to bring the outdoors in while keeping the bugs at bay. Screen doors can aid in ventilation during milder temperatures, allowing gentle breezes and fresh air inside. Pella storm doors2 with Vivid View® screens allow 29% more light and 21% more airflow into your home than standard fiberglass screens.

  • Wooden Front Doors Wooden Front Door

    Solid wood doors are just as beautiful on contemporary homes as they are on traditional homes and for this reason are loved by homeowners of all styles. Pella offers wood front doors made from mahogany and walnut. Heat and humidity can have an impact on a solid wood front door, but Houston homeowners can still get the same look with lower maintenance by choosing a fiberglass front door with a wood-look finish.

  • Modern Front Doors Modern Front Door 

    Contemporary homes call for equally contemporary front doors. Whether made from wood, glass, steel, or any combination of the three, modern front doors are characterized by their simple design, clean lines, and minimalist hardware. Long associated with contemporary style, black windows frames and doors are trending across the country right now and can be one way to freshen up a more traditional style home.

1Warning: Use caution when children or pets are around open windows and doors. Screens are not designed to retain children or pets.

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

Houston Climate Recommendations

The largest city in Texas, Houston is located in the southeastern portion of the state near the Gulf of Mexico and Galveston Bay. Prevailing winds from these bodies of water bring heat and moisture to the Houston area throughout much of the year. Summers are long, hot, and humid, while winters are more mild. Houston sees ample rainfall and the occasional hurricane.

Salty Air

Salty Air

In coastal climates close to water, your windows and doors are more vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Consider fiberglass to help maintain door integrity.

Extreme Storm Weather

Areas that experience hurricanes and tropical storms may wish to consider impact glass.
