If the doors in your home have seen better days, are drafty, or need an upgrade, it may be time for a door replacement. And while this process seems simple enough, it’s much more complex than removing the old door and installing a new one. From ensuring it’s the right size to choosing a style that will match your home’s existing décor, this home improvement project isn’t one you can DIY.
Instead, trust an experienced door installation company to update your house’s front entry door, screen door, or any other type of door.
Which Type of Door Do You Need?
Doors offer much more than just entry into your house or deck. They also provide security, an aesthetic focal point, and say a lot about who you are as a homeowner. When you are considering your door replacement needs, choose from the following door styles for installation:
An entry door is the first thing a visitor will see when they come to your home, so you want it to convey the right feeling for your home and match its style and era. You’ll also need to consider whether a right-handed or left-handed door works better for the opening while considering the door’s width. No matter your desires, we can help you create the front door you’ve always wanted.
A lot of homeowners forgo installing a storm door for the sake of aesthetics, but they actually serve several purposes. Not only can you open your entry door to allow light and fresh air into the house, but you can keep bugs out at the same time. Storm doors also provide an extra layer of insulation value by creating a pocket that keeps warm air in and cold air out during extreme temperatures to help save on your energy bills.
Patio doors have become a catch-all term that covers any type of door that opens to your garden or patio area. Standard patio doors are six feet and eight inches tall. Their width varies based on whether they’re a two- or three-panel configuration. Patio doors can also include screen doors to allow you to enjoy the breeze on a warm summer day or talk with your guests on the patio while you prepare food in your kitchen.
Sliding doors are great when you’re dealing with restricted space and want to avoid having a door protruding into your room. They’re easy to open and close, offer a lot of natural light and views, and can be installed with a screen to keep bugs out while you enjoy the outdoors. We partner with Marvin—a leading door manufacturer—who has a wide selection of sliding patio doors for you to choose from.
Commonly found in homes featuring a traditional architectural style, French doors are always popular choices! Typically coming in pairs, French doors are often glass-paned double doors hinged to open either inward or outward. With their wider door frame, these doors will let more light into your house than sliding doors, but they come at a higher price than other door types.
If none of the above door styles fit your needs, there’s always the specialty door route. Maybe you’d like a custom accordion (bi-fold) door or a space-saving pocket door in your home. Interior barn doors have also become extremely popular, which offer a rustic and flexible approach for interior doors, as opposed to a traditional hinged door. If you have a vision for what you’d like, we’ll help you create it.

What Considerations Do I Need to Make Before Choosing a New Door?
Before you begin door installation, you must make a few considerations. Some of these include:
- Consider the style of door you want to install, as well as its purpose. For example, if it’s a door to a patio, you’ll need to determine whether you’d like French doors, sliding doors, or even specialty doors. Steel entry doors protect against break-ins, while fiberglass doors are very energy-efficient and offer a higher insulation factor than wooden ones. On the other hand, wood doors deliver a high-end finished look to your home, especially when stained to bring out the details in the grain.
- Determine which door material is right for you. There are various materials to choose from, including fiberglass, steel, wood, or even a combination, each with a different feel and weight.
- Decide if you want to include glass in your door and how much. Depending on your visual interests and your desired visibility, the doors can be entirely glass, partial, or none.
- Take into account security considerations involving the locking mechanisms of your doors and which security features you want.
- Get proper measurements of your doors. Generally, entry doors come in widths of 30, 32, and 36 inches, with a standard height of 80 inches and 1¾-inch thickness.
- Consider adding storm doors to any entrances of your home. They’ll also protect your door against rain, ice, and snow. They also give you greater visibility to your front yard if you want to keep an eye on your children or pets.
