Different Types of Exterior Doors for Your Home

Exterior doors give your home curb appeal, setting the tone and mood of its design. There are many types of doors for your home. The type you pick depends on the style and material you prefer. Examples include those that Window World of Boston provides, such as:

Boston Different Types Entry
  • Entry Doors: Your front door is crucial to curb appeal as well as security. A new front door can boost energy efficiency as well. The best kinds of front doors depend on the material you prefer.
    • Wood is very popular; it is durable and secure but requires greater up-front expenses and upkeep. Without routine maintenance, it will succumb to the elements prematurely. But you can prevent rotting and warping by painting and staining the door every couple of years.
    • Fiberglass is durable and efficient. Expansion due to temperature extremes and exposure to moisture is not a problem either. Even better, the foam core insulation prevents cool air from escaping during the summer and keeps heated air in during the winter.
    • Steel is the material to go with if you’re looking for maximum strength, security, and efficiency. Steel entry doors resist extreme weather and intruders. They are also insulated and come in various options, including wood grain finishes.
  • Sliding Patio Doors: Add function and architectural appeal to your home. Sliding patio doors maximize natural lighting. They also improve ventilation. Large sliding panels of glass, they come with wood, aluminum, and vinyl frames with options such as reinforcements or security bars.
  • Hinged Patio Doors: A different level of style compliments the durability of these doors. They swing like traditional doors and make your living space more convenient. There are many design options for matching your hinged patio doors with your home.

For a more elegant approach with more privacy, try French patio doors. Options include inward or outward opening doors; you can choose whether they open from the left or right as well. Even though you have a set of doors, you can choose which ones open or stay closed, and have a wide selection of materials.

  • Garage Doors: Are the largest and most functional doors in your home. Visual appeal is extremely important, given the surface area garage doors take up. Many different styles are available, including flat or raised panels, hardware options, and windows.
  • Storm Doors: These are important exterior doors people often overlook. Providing an additional layer to your existing exterior door, they offer protection with materials such as steel, aluminum, or composites. Storm doors resist weather-related damage and add energy efficiency.

  • Dutch doors, divided horizontally with separate panels for the top and bottom.
  • Battened/ledged doors, with wooden battens and three horizontal ledges; they can be braced or braced/framed to strengthen the door and add aesthetics.
  • Pocket doors, which move in and out of the wall to conserve space in small areas like closets, bathrooms, and powder rooms.
