Replacing an old door or installing a new one seems like a pretty simple decision. After all, it’s just a door, but there’s more to it than that.
First, you need to 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. Second, there are a host of materials to choose from, including fiberglass, steel, wood, or even a combination, each with a different feel and weight. Third, there’s whether or not you want to include glass in your door or not, and if so, how much. Doors can be entirely glass, partial, or none—it all depends on your visual interests and how much visibility you want. Finally, there are also security considerations to take into account involving the locking mechanisms of your doors.
An entry door is the first thing a visitor is going to see when they come to your home, so you want it to convey the right feeling for your home as well as 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 also considering the door’s width. Generally, entry doors come in standard widths of 30, 32, and 36 inches, with a standard height of 80 inches and 1¾-inch thickness.
Depending on your needs, you’ll also want to think about what material you want your entry door to have. For example, steel doors are great for protecting against break-ins, while fiberglass doors are very energy-efficient and offer a high-insulation factor when compared to a wooden door. On the other hand, wood doors deliver a high-end finished look to your home, especially when they’re stained to bring out the details in the grain.

A lot of homeowners forgo installing a storm door for the sake of aesthetics, but they actually serve several purposes.
Contrary to its name, one of the best times to enjoy a storm door is when the weather is nice. 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. Not to mention that 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.
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 6 feet, 8 inches tall. Their width varies based on whether they’re a two- or three-panel configuration.
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. Marvin has a wide selection of sliding patio doors for you to choose from.
Commonly found in homes featuring a traditional architectural style, are the ever-popular French doors. Typically coming in pairs, French doors are often glass-paned double doors that are 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 come at a higher price. No matter your taste, you’ll be able to select from a great variety of hardware styles to complement your décor.
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. Whether you’re looking for interior or exterior door installation, our experts will help you every step of the way.
