Seattle Front Doors

Front Doors Make a Lasting First Impression

It does not matter if you live in a “Seattle Box” in Beacon Hill and Capitol Hill or have embraced the “space-age evolution” of the mid-century modern homes in the hillsides of Seattle. When visitors are at your doorstep, they are all looking at your front door. It sets the tone for the rest of your home, offering a first impression for your guests and a warm welcome for your family.

You need a front door that will function well, complement or enhance the aesthetic and architecture of your home, and welcome friends, family and guests with open arms.

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

Popular Local Trends & Styles


  • storm door Storm Doors1 

    For homeowners residing in a city that experiences as much rainfall as Seattle does, a storm door is a smart choice. Storm doors, which typically consist of glass panels that are interchangeable or retractable, can help protect your front door from precipitation. You can even choose between a variety of full-view glass designs to personalize your entrance.

  • Modern entry door with flat simulated light divided grilles Modern Front Door

    As older homes are being replaced with new houses, more Seattle homeowners are expressing interest in the sleek hardware and matte black finishes associated with a modern style. Updating your traditional style home with a new modern front door can offer a fresh look. Homeowners who favor a more contemporary feel for their exterior can opt for a clean-lined door.

  • Double Entry Doors Double Entry Door

    Why settle for one front door when you can have two? Consider a wood-stained fiberglass double front entry door, complete with decorative glass panels and a multi-point lock system. The fiberglass material offers the look of real wood but requires less maintenance. Double entry doors can also bring a sense of style and sophistication to the exterior of your home.

  • white front door White Front Door

    White is one of the most traditional and functional paint colors a homeowner can choose for their front door. It’s no surprise that homeowners in the Pacific Northwest have gravitated towards different shades of white. In Seattle, specifically, white front doors work together with the natural light to help the undertones come through and pull the entire exterior together.

Seattle Climate Recommendations


Seattle is known for its ever-changing climate, but as its residents will tell you, as long as you expect rain, you’ll be prepared for whatever the weather holds in store. It rains nearly 50 percent of the time in Seattle, particularly in the fall and winter months. The summer, considered the driest season of the year in the city, offers a temporary respite from the year-round precipitation. But when the skies clear, Seattle is often quite pleasant due to its temperate climate, with only a few days out of the year that are either unbearably hot or freezing cold.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Doors with panes of glass with Low-E may help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and helping keep the heat in.

Salty Air

Salty Air

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

Weather Protection

Weather Protection

Storm doors2 provide an additional layer of protection from the mix of precipitation, preserving the look of your front door for years to come.
