Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Sidelights and windows on your entry door Front Doors with Transom and Sidelights 

    Let the sunshine in with sidelights and transom windows. These features are beautiful for New Jersey homes as they suit a range of architectural styles. Transoms can be especially helpful in older, more traditional homes that have solid front doors as they allow light to filter into the entry hall. Sidelights frame a front door and can be a great look on more contemporary homes with double entry doors.

  • Colonial Front Doors Colonial-Style Front Doors

    Pre-war Colonials are prominent throughout New Jersey. Original Colonial-style homes featured solid wood doors with raised panels. Wood front doors are still a popular choice today, but now you can also get the same look from fiberglass. These doors are available in a number of different colors and wood-like finishes.

  • Wooden Front Doors Wood Front Doors

    Made from mahogany and rustic walnut, there are wood front doors available to match any New Jersey home style, from Victorian to Tudor, Federal to farmhouse. Solid wood doors are common on old homes, but you can also get the look of real wood with a low-maintenance wood-grain fiberglass door, stained in one of many warm wood tones.

  • Storm Doors Storm Doors 

    Storm doors1 are commonly used in regions where weather fluctuates seasonally. Serving as an extra barrier against extreme weather conditions, a storm door can help protect your front door. Storm doors frequently contain glass or screen2 panels that are interchangeable or retractable allowing for ventilation during warmer months. They are available in a variety of sizes and styles suitable for the diversity of home styles in the Garden State.

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.

New Jersey Climate Recommendations

Sandwiched between the Delaware River and the Atlantic Ocean, New Jersey has a moderate climate, with an average high of 70 degrees in July and an average low of 30 degrees in January. Northeastern New Jersey’s close proximity to the ocean helps maintain moisture in the air which means snowy winters, rainy springs, and warm, humid summers.

All of these elements can take a toll on your front door depending on its finish, the location, the direction it faces, and whether or not there’s an overhang. A wood door is more likely to be impacted by the moisture in the air than a fiberglass door.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer by helping to reduce the loss of climate controlled air from your home. Doors with Low-E insulating glass can help keep your home insulated.


Fiberglass Entry Doors

For good insulation and protection from drafts and leaks, choose fiberglass entry doors.

Weather Protection

Weather Protection

Storm doors help protect fiberglass and steel entry door frames from cold winters, humid summers, and heavy precipitation. Preserve the look of your front door with a storm door to keep your main entrance looking great for years.
