Pittsburgh Front Doors

Refresh Your Home with a Replacement Front Door

Your home’s front door offers a welcoming presence to guests and passersby alike. Made of fiberglass, steel, or solid wood, front doors also serve as a barrier between your home and the elements. When choosing a new or replacement front door, choose a look and material that reflects the style of you and your home and can stand up to The Steel City’s extreme weather.

Cottage-style homes, Tudors, and row houses are common architectural styles around the greater Pittsburgh area. Whether building new in North Fayette or updating a historic home in Allegheny West, there’s an entry door from Pella to suit.

Popular Local Trends & Styles


  • Sidelights and windows on your entry door Front Doors With Glass

    Glass on an entry door serves both an aesthetic and practical purpose. There are a number of ways to incorporate glass into a front door design, from windows and decorative glass on the door itself, to sidelights and transoms framing the doorway. The additional light provided by front doors with glass can be especially helpful in dark or narrow row house entryways.

  • craftsman fiberglass double entry front door Double Entry Doors

    When space allows, double doors can make for a truly grand entrance. Historically, double entry doors were often featured under a transom window or pediment to make a statement on the front of the home. Today, those features, or even sidelights flanking either side, are still commonly seen with double doors.

  • Wooden Front Doors Wood Door

    If your historic home still has its original front door, chances are it’s solid wood. Solid wood four- and six-panel front doors are extremely prevalent on early American homes and remain a popular entry door material among homeowners today. Pella solid wood doors are made from mahogany and rustic walnut,  but you can also get the look of real wood with a low-maintenance fiberglass door in a wood-grain finish.

  • contemporary front door Contemporary Front Door 

    Whether building a new home or reviving an older one, a modern entry door can freshen up the exterior of your home. No longer reserved for only the most contemporary of homes, black front doors and window frames are trending among homeowners of all styles. Pull a sleek look together with minimalist hardware in high-contrast finishes like polished chrome or matte black.

Pittsburgh Climate Recommendations


Like the rest of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh experiences four distinct seasons. Summers tend to be warm and humid while winters tend to be cold and snowy. Thanks to the city’s location on the windward side of the Appalachian Mountains, ample precipitation is expected year-round.

Wind, sleet, and snow can all have an affect on your front door depending on its finish, the direction it faces, and whether or not it’s protected by an overhang. Storm doors can help protect fiberglass entry doors, while energy-efficient glass on wood and fiberglass doors alike can help keep your home comfortable.

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 Windows or Doors

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

Weather Protection

Weather Protection

Winter cold and snow can impact your front door, depending on its finish, the location, the direction it faces, and whether or not there’s an overhang. Heavy air moisture levels can impact a wood door more than other materials like fiberglass. Protect the look of your front door with a storm door to help keep your main entrance looking great for years.
