Scranton Front Doors

Front Doors Make a Great First Impression

An entry door doesn’t take up much space on the front of your home. But it can make a major impact on guests and passers-by. Front doors are the gateway to your house and your style. With a wide variety of designs, materials, finishes, and colors, your main door can make a statement and boost your home’s curb appeal.

Scranton is home to a number of Victorian-style houses, where decorative and ornate front entrances are common. Double-entry doors were preferred, providing wide, welcoming entryways to these decorative homes.

Commonly known as: main door, entry door, entrance door

  • White storm door with screen Screen Doors

    Wood screen doors were common in traditional homes like the ones found in the Scranton area. But modern screen doors are actually metal storm doors with either interchangeable glass and screen panels or adjustable screens1. You get better protection from the weather, less maintenance, and more versatility to change up your front entrance to suit your needs for sunlight, aesthetics, or fresh air.

  • Full light storm door with beveled glass Storm Doors

    Storm doors are made to help protect your front entry door from the elements. They’re made out of aluminum to better stand up to unpredictable Pennsylvania weather. Storm doors come in a variety of styles — including decorative glass designs — so they can help provide protection without taking anything away from the beauty of your front door.

  • Wooden Front Doors Wooden Front Doors

    Wood entry doors provide a classic look and unlimited design flexibility. They can be simple or decorative, stained or painted, traditional or contemporary — whatever you need to match the rest of your home. Paint your front door black, red, or another bold color to make your entry stand out on your street. Go classic with a mahogany stain or get a distressed look with a rustic walnut door.

  • Glass Front Doors with Sidelights or Transoms Glass Front Doors With Sidelights or Transoms

    Wood isn’t the only front door material. You can also get fiberglass or steel front doors. Whatever material you choose, you can enhance the look with glass. Adding glass to your front doors can create a more stately entrance — especially on decorative double entry doors. In Victorian homes, glass was commonly used around the door as well. Surround your front door with sidelights or transom windows to get a look that’s purely Pennsylvania.

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

Recommended Customizations*


Glass front doors add a traditional elegance to houses of classic architectural eras. Grilles are a great add-on to glass — they add the symmetrical look of Victorian style. Transoms with muntins are another way to get the look. Brass or rustic handle sets better match the traditional style than other hardware options.

Scranton Climate Recommendations


Scranton is flanked by mountains on the east and west, which can make for long winters and chilling temps. Insulation and energy efficiency are important in keeping your home comfortable and your energy costs down. Wood is a natural insulator and fiberglass has similar properties.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Low-E insulating glass on doors, transoms, and sidelights can help keep your home more comfortable and your energy costs down.

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood and fiberglass front doors are built to help withstand the weather.

Weather Protection

Weather Protection

The elements can cause wear and decreased door performance. The direction your door faces (South and West exposures tend to expose a door to more sun) and whether or not your entry door is located under a covered entrance, overhang, or porch roof can affect performance. Protect the look of your front door with a storm door to keep your main entrance looking great for years.

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.

  •   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?

  •   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.

      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.
