Everyone knows that your front door is the most important door in your home, so we understand if choosing the right one can be a little overwhelming. At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we have doors of every kind that can fit both your financial plan and your taste.
When you invite friends or family members to your home, your front door is the first thing they’ll see, so the right look can make a great first impression. Many homeowners opt for a traditional wooden door because of its classic beauty, but what door material you choose is based on your preference. If you like the look of wood but not the material, many manufacturers can make fiberglass doors look just like wood. Or, if you want a more modern look, you may want to choose a front door made of steel.
Additionally, nearly any front door can incorporate glass panes to give it a more elegant, unique look. Whether the glass is stained, textured, frosted, etched, or regular glass, this feature can give your home a distinct appearance.
Since your front door is your home’s entryway, security may be one of your top priorities. Today’s front doors are all made thicker than interior doors for extra strength, but the door’s material can also play a part. If you want the ultimate security, we suggest choosing a steel door. The strength of steel outweighs the strength of fiberglass or wood. However, you can always increase the security of any door by adding a deadbolt lock and a reinforced metal box strike.
If your main focus is affordability, you may want to steer clear of wood doors – especially those with custom glass accents. As door experts, we usually suggest a steel door (or possibly a composite wood door) for homeowners who are looking for the best deal. However, you may be able to find a fiberglass door within your budget. Whether you want to replace your front door or are in need of a new one, give Lowes’ front doors a break and call us here at P.J. Fitzpatrick.
