Los Angeles Front Doors

Make a bold statement with your front door

Los Angeles is home to a variety of architectural styles as diverse as the city’s ever-expanding population. There are the Cape Cod style homes of Sherman Oaks and Encino, the Spanish and Mediterranean style homes of Los Feliz, the Craftsman style homes of Jefferson Park, Harvard Heights, and Vermont Square, and the modern style homes of West Hollywood, among others.

No matter the style, all homes require a front door. And with a variety of different homes to choose from in the Los Angeles area, it’s only fair that you have a variety of different materials, styles, colors, and finishes to choose from when it comes to your front door. It’s an opportunity to show off your personal style and boost the curb appeal of your home.

  • glass door Glass Front Doors 

    Your front door can be a window into your home in both a figurative and literal sense. Glass front doors add aesthetic appeal to your home in a way that more traditional front doors simply cannot, and the added glass bathes your front entryway in natural light. You don’t have to choose a full-glass front door to achieve the effect, but consider an entry door that uses ¾ light or incorporate geometrical window shapes within the door panel to enhance the entrance into your home.

  • Modern and Contemporary Style Modern and Contemporary Style

    Los Angeles is no stranger to unique architecture styles, but modern, mid-century modern, and contemporary houses stand out among the crowd as today’s most popular styles. Whereas modern front doors are all about clean lines and smooth surfaces, mid-century modern entry doors are a variation of that style. The clean lines are used to cut geometric shapes with the glass and complemented by a crisp tonal palette for a pure mid-century aesthetic. Contemporary front doors are clean and minimalist, but differentiate themselves with round or curved elements.

  • Double Front Doors Double Front Doors

    Two is quite often better than one, which is why double entry doors might be exactly what your home needs to make a statement. If you want a front entrance that welcomes your guests and conveys warmth, you’d be hard pressed to find a bolder and more stylish option than double front doors. The wider entrance allows more light into your home and enables ease of access, whether you are bringing furniture into the home or opening your doors to guests for a party.

  • Safety and Security Safety and Security

    Everyone wants to feel safe in their home, and security starts with the front door. With Pella you can choose factory-installed sensors integrated within your Architect Series® door to help protect what matters most. Insynctive® technology* keeps you aware of whether your door is open or closed and locked or unlocked, providing the peace of mind you need to feel safe and secure.

*Requires connection to a compatible home automation system and smart device.

Los Angeles Climate Recommendations


If your front door is full-glass or has glass windows incorporated within the frame, consider choosing an energy-efficient glass to help keep the summer heat out of your home.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep your home comfortable — and protected from the heat — with Low-E insulating glass that will also help keep energy costs down, for glass within your door and transoms or sidelights. SunDefense™ Low-E Insulating Glass with Argon can block 94 percent of the sun’s heat and ultraviolet rays.

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

Don’t leave your front doors vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. Living close to the coast means your home is more susceptible to the effects. Fiberglass and steel can help resist wear from the sun and the ocean air.

Weather Protection

Weather Protection

The harsher elements of the Southern California climate can cause wear and decreased door performance. Help protect the look of your front door with a storm door* to keep your main entrance looking great for years. 

*Adding a storm door to a wood entry door voids the warranty and is not recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions


  •   What factory-prefinished stain and paint colors are available on Pella products?
    • Wood Windows and Patio Doors – Wood interiors offer more design flexibility — windows and patio doors can be stained or painted to match your decor.  Explore the interior and exterior finish options available for Pella's wood products.

      As part of Pella Corporation’s commitment to environmentally-friendly practices, we use Water-Based Green Chemistry. Our factory-applied stain is water-based, which significantly decreases the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted into the air.

      Fiberglass Windows and Patio Doors – Available in colors offering the quality look of painted wood — including a dual-color option. Explore the interior and exterior finish options available for Pella's fiberglass products.

      Vinyl Windows and Patio Doors – Pella's unique vinyl formula is performance-tested for excellent weathering, durability, and color retention. Solid- and Dual-Color frames are available. Explore the interior and exterior finish options available for Pella's vinyl products.

      Fiberglass and Steel Entry Doors – You'll save time and finishing costs when your entry door arrives prefinished in your choice of paint or stain color that will look beautiful for years. Explore interior and exterior finish options for Pella's fiberglass and steel entry doors.

  •   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. An 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 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.
