How To Choose the Right Exterior Door

Mar 01, 2024

Your exterior doors are essential in keeping your home safe and secure. And your front entry doors are also an integral element of your property’s curb appeal. Choosing the right front entry doors enhances your home inside and out—but how do you know which is suitable? Here’s what to consider when selecting new exterior doors for your home.

Choose a Trusted Door Brand

One of the first things you’ll want to consider when choosing new exterior doors is the door brand. Opting for a reputable brand with a proven track record is a smart choice to ensure you receive expertly crafted, durable, reliable, and energy-efficient exterior doors. You can make your decision with confidence when you choose a trusted name like Pella for your door replacement project.

Choose Your Door Material

After selecting a trusted brand for your new front entry doors, you can move on to some of the details of the door itself. First, consider the material you’d like for your new front door. This will determine your other customization and design options. Fiberglass, wood, and steel doors are all great choices for front entry doors in Minnesota. Consider the level of durability, customizability, and appearance each of these materials can offer to determine which door option best suits your preferences.

Choose Your Design Elements

You can dig into more aesthetic details once you’ve chosen the material for your new front entry doors. Does your entryway have space for a set of double doors or sidelites? Do you have your heart set on decorative glass elements for your new front doors? Or is there a specific color and profile you have in mind to complement the rest of your home’s architectural features? These are some of the many things you can consider as you explore the various available customization options.

Choose Your Door Company

The quality of the door company you choose for your door replacement project is as important as the quality of your front entry doors. First, you’ll want to select a door company that offers the type and style of doors you’re interested in. If you have a specific type or brand of door in mind, you’ll need to find a door contractor that offers these products. Additionally, you’ll want to choose a door company that ensures flawless installations during the door replacement process. Your new front entry doors will only look and perform at their best if properly installed, which is why you need a trusted door contractor to complete the work.

Enjoy Peace of Mind
 Pure Home Restoration replaced all of the windows on the north, east and west sides of my house including the picture window and sliding glass door in the kitchen. Don was great to work with. They took care of all of the claim/insurance company dealings which was very helpful. I haven't had to do much more than enjoy the new windows. 
 Don Darnell and the Pure Home team were incredibly professional and knowledgeable throughout our entire repair process. Don went above and beyond advocating for us with our insurance company. His attention to detail throughout the repair process was greatly appreciated which allowed for a seamless installation process. We would recommend Pure Home without hesitation and plan to work with them again if/when the need arises. 
 Pure Home was quick in responding to me, and worked directly with my insurance and mortgage companies to help guide me through the process of the claim. They had an onsite foreman each day to check the progress of both the roof and gutter replacements. They were professional and thorough.
