Exterior Doors

Interior doors can often be whatever fits your design scheme, or property owners can remove them entirely. However, exterior doors that lead outside need careful consideration to ensure you choose the best door for your house. Here are a few common areas where you might want an exterior door and options for what to choose (contact us for more information!).

Exterior Door Locations

Homeowners often jump directly for the front door when considering exterior doors. And that door is, indeed, quite important. It’s the first point of contact your guests have with your home and, thus, their first impression of your sanctuary. But you probably also have a back door, and you might also have a side door and a door leading out of the garage. Our modern houses often have a lot of exterior doors! You’ll need to consider each door’s energy efficiency, durability, appearance, safety, and similar issues carefully.


There are so many materials on the market for exterior doors that it can get overwhelming. The traditional wood door comes in a layered and pressed variety or a solid wood version (the latter being far more expensive than the former). Then you’ve got your metal door options, including steel and aluminum. And there are plenty of more modern materials, such as fiberglass-composite doors.


Nobody likes the thought of a break-in, and quality doors provide a first line of defense. Be prepared by choosing the safest options for your exterior doors. Ensure all your doors have a solid core so nobody can kick them in. Your door shouldn’t be able to be unhinged, either. If you choose to have windows in your door, ensure no one can reach inside to unlock the door by smashing them. And always select quality locking sets that intruders cannot break or pick open.
