Long Island Front Doors

Front Doors add Style and Charm

Front doors certainly offer function, helping to provide privacy, security, and protection from inclement weather. But front doors also offer style, serving as an expression of both you and your home and a welcoming first impression to visitors. Long Island is home to a range of architectural styles, just consider the difference between the door on an Italianate brownstone in Kings County and the door on a contemporary home in Suffolk County. Pella doors are available in a variety of sizes and styles, with further options to customize the finish, grille pattern, and hardware, so Long Island homeowners can find the front door that best suits the needs of their particular home.

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

2Popular Local Trends & Styles


  • Sidelights and windows on your entry door Front Door with Windows

    Front doors with glass are popular in Long Island. Some homeowners may like to have a window on their front door, while some may prefer a solid front door with sidelights—a panel of glass on one or both sides of the door—others still may only have room for a transom window above the entry door. All three of these window options allow additional light to filter into the entry hall, which can be especially beneficial in a narrow or attached home where window space is limited.

  • Contemporary Front Door Contemporary Style

    Black front doors might be trending across many home styles right now, but they have long been a popular choice for modern homes. Black front doors provide a striking contrast to the exterior of your home. In addition to the finish of your entry door, you can further achieve a contemporary look through glass options and square grille patterns, as well as hardware selections with clean lines and understated finishes.

  • Wooden Front Doors Wooden Doors

    Solid wood doors remain a popular choice among homeowners, especially in more traditional homes, like many Tudors, colonials, or Queen Anne-styles. Pella’s wooden doors are made from mahogany and walnut, and are available in a range of different styles, so whether you are interested in a solid 6-panel door or a 2-panel arched entry door with a window, there’s a style for you. If solid wood doors aren’t an option for your home because of salty ocean air, you can still get the same look with one of Pella’s fiberglass front doors in a wood-look finish.

  • Custom Front Door Custom Front Doors 

    With such an array of home styles on Long Island, the front door your neighbor has might not be the same front door you need. Luckily, Pella offers a variety of options for style, finish, and hardware, so the choices for customizing your front door are nearly limitless. Whether you want a fiberglass door or steel one, or you are interested in a red, yellow, green, or blue front door, Pella has a product for you.

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

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

Long Island Climate Recommendations


While Long Island experiences long, hot summers and cool winters, the island’s climate is milder than the rest of the state. Keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter with an insulating fiberglass door.

Fiberglass Doors

Fiberglass Doors.

Choose a fiberglass door for good insulation.

Weather Protection

Weather Protection.

Prepare wood doors for bitterly cold winters and semi-humid summers.

Weather Protection

Salty Air.

In coastal climates close to water, your 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 window and door integrity.

Frequently Asked Questions


  •   How do I choose the right paint or stain for my wood windows and doors?
    • Stained Wood Interior Finish – Pella strongly recommends the use of a good-quality pre-stain wood conditioner before staining Pella windows and patio doors to reduce the possibility of a blotchy-looking, uneven finish. Ask your paint or finishing professional to recommend a pre-stain wood conditioner, a stain and a finishing coat that are compatible.

      Painted Wood Interior Finish – The most important consideration to make when choosing your paint is good blocking resistance — the ability of a paint to resist sticking. Failure to use a high-quality paint with good blocking resistance may result in a window or door that sticks shut, even after the paint has dried. Ask your qualified paint professional to recommend a paint with good blocking resistance. Don't simply rely on a paint's price or brand name in making your selection. Expensive paint may not necessarily offer good blocking resistance. Also, ask your paint professional to recommend a wood primer and paint that are compatible and whether sanding is required between coats of paint.

      Explore the factory pre-finish options available for Pella's wood products.

  •   Which Pella doors are available with SmartKey® Technology?
    • SmartKey Technology is available, and comes standard, on Pella's fiberglass and steel entry doors.  Architect Series® sliding, French and hinged patio doors with hardware from the Rustic, Classic or Modern Collection will have SmartKey Technology.

      Learn more about Pella's hardware collections and how to use SmartKey Technology.

  •   Where can I get paint or stain to match the interior and exterior of my Pella products?
    • Paints and stains for Pella products are available in quarts and gallons via special order through Lowe's stores or your local Pella Window and Door Showroom. You will need to provide the color of the paint or stain that you need to place an order.

      Or you may take the color or stain desired along with the substrate you are trying to match to your local Sherwin-Williams® or home improvement store and have them custom match the color.

      If you don't have a Pella paint chip or just need a small bottle of touch up paint or stain for dings and scratches, submit a request to Pella Corporation's customer support team or call (877) 473-5527 for further assistance.

      Be sure to consult with your local paint or finish store representative or professional to help address your specific finishing needs and review the Finishing section of your Pella Owner's Manual for details about how to properly finish your Pella products.

  •   How do I clean and restore shine to the handles and hardware on my windows and doors?
  •   How much does an entry door cost?
  •   What glass options are available on Pella entry doors?
  •   Do I need to finish my Pella entry door?
    • If your fiberglass or steel entry door from Pella was delivered without an interior or exterior finish (paint or stain), you must finish it within 30 days to protect your investment.

      If your wood entry door from Pella was delivered without an interior or exterior finish (paint or stain), you must finish it within 14 days to protect your investment. 

      The Pella warranty does not cover issues associated with failure to properly finish in a timely manner. Get complete details on your warranty, including exceptions and limitations.

      NOTES:  

      • For a professional-looking painted finish, it's important to use a quality brush or spray technique. Contact your local paint professional for recommendations.
      • Installation of a steel entry door within five miles of a seacoast is not recommended due to the risk of corrosion, and it will void Pella's steel entry door warranty.

      Be sure to consult with your local paint or finish store representative or professional to help address your specific finishing needs and review the Finishing section of the Pella Entry Door Owner's Manual for details about how to properly finish your Pella entry door.

  •   What do I need to know about finishing or refinishing my entry door?
    • Before finishing your entry door system, you must know whether your entry door panel and sidelights are fiberglass or steel. If you're unsure if your entry door is made of fiberglass or steel, place a magnet on your door — if it sticks, it's most likely steel.

      Your Pella packaging and sales invoice should also indicate the door type. Check with your Pella representative for specific information on your product. Visit the Pella Help Library for finishing tips.

  •   How do I stain my fiberglass entry door?
    • If you desire a stained wood appearance on your wood-grain fiberglass door panels, sidelights, and glass frames, apply gel stain and clear finish according to the manufacturer's directions. For best results, always apply stain in the direction of the grain. Be sure to finish door edges.

      Visit the Pella Help Library for staining tips.

  •   How do I paint my fiberglass entry door?
    • If you're going to paint your entry door panel, be sure to ask a qualified paint or finishing professional to recommend a paint with good blocking resistance. Don't rely on a paint's price or brand name in making your selection — an expensive paint may not necessarily offer good blocking resistance. Failure to use a high-quality paint with good blocking resistance may result in a door that sticks shut even after the paint has dried.

      Once you have the right paint, promptly paint all exterior surfaces, including door panel edges, with two coats of quality exterior paint with good blocking resistance. Then paint all interior surfaces with two coats of quality interior paint with good block resistance.

      NOTE: Applying thick layers of paint may hide the texture of the door panel.

      1. Stir paint well.
      2. Wet only the tip of the brush, and apply one thin coat. Brush in the direction of the grain.
      3. Apply paint to various door components first, such as the door edges, brickmould, jambs, mullions, glazing frames and wood frames. Then paint the panel.
      4. Clean brush.
      5. Wait at least six hours between each coat application of the paint. Finish must be completely dry before applying the next coat. Do not sand between coats.
      6. Repeat Steps 1–4 for each additional coat applied.

      NOTE: A primer may be necessary to get proper adhesion. Contact your local paint supplier to determine if a primer is necessary with the selected paint.

      CAUTION: Finish all exposed door panel edges, including the top edge. This helps reduce the chance of warping. After finishing the entry door system, allow the door to dry completely, in accordance with the paint manufacturer’s directions, before closing it.

      Be sure to consult with your local paint or finish store representative or professional to help address your specific finishing needs and review the Finishing section of the Pella Entry Door Owner's Manual for details about how to properly finish your Pella entry door. 

      Get complete warranty details for your entry door, including exceptions and limitations.

  •   Does Pella sell fire-rated entry doors? How can I tell if I have a fire-rated entry door from Pella?
    • Yes, Pella sells fire-rated entry doors and will have two foil stickers indicating that they are fire-rated. The first is a silver sticker located on the frame or jamb; the second is a black sticker noting that is it a 20-minute rated panel.

  •   How long is the factory prefinish warranty on entry doors?
