Exterior Door Types
Your Door is Your First Impression
Doors serve a practical and aesthetic role in the overall interior design of your home. The front door provides a first impression, along with security and privacy for your property. Internal doors shut areas off, which can mean savings on heating and cooling, noise reduction, and the miraculous disappearance of clutter. From fiberglass and wood front doors to the convenience of sliding glass patio doors, PJ Fitzpatrick offers several different door types.
Strong and Elegant Doors for Every Home
We work with leading entry door manufacturers to ensure you not only get the look you want but also have a door that stays sturdy and safe. Whether you want to improve curb appeal or have more efficient access to your outdoor living spaces, we offer several door types to match your desired look and functionality.
Fiberglass Front Doors
Fiberglass is a relatively newer door material. It’s very low maintenance, resists denting and scratching, and is very secure. They can come in wood grain texture if you desire a wood-look. Another benefit to fiberglass is that, unlike wood and steel, it doesn’t need to be finished. Fiberglass doors should last for years without fear of mold, deterioration, or rust.
Typically gateway to the backyard, these sliding glass panes let lots of light in and improve ventilation when opened. Sliding glass doors are used indoors when space is an issue as there may not be enough room for a door to open. When opting for a door replacement, sliding glass doors provide unmatched convenience to access your outdoor living area.
Stile & Rail Exterior Doors
This older style of wood door is made from planks of timber – or a wood composite. The name refers to its components – vertical members, called stiles, and horizontal members called rails. These elegant doors come solid or with glazing to allow in natural light.
French Patio Doors
Commonly used to connect your patio or garden with your house, a French door is made of glass and framed (most commonly) by wood, fiberglass, or aluminum. They are found as both single and double doors and have a more elegant look than the more popular sliding glass doors.
