Ready for a warm new look? Try a wood front door

Winters in Rochester can bring a lot of weather changes: colder temperatures, wetter environments and gloomy skies. One of the best ways to warm up the look of your home during this sometimes dreary time of year is by adding a wooden replacement door. The detailed wood doors from Pella Windows and Doors are made to complement your home and add warmth to your entryway.

Now that understand the types of wooden doors available to you from Pella Windows and Doors, how do know if a wooden door is best for your house? There are several advantages to wood replacement doors besides their style and warmth. Here are some things to think about:

  • Because the doors are comprised of wood, they are easier to customize. Door panels, molding and any other special features can easily be crafted into wood to make your front door your own. You can also showcase your wood’s natural grain with stain.
  • Depending on your climate, wood replacement doors and windows can be a long-lasting, durable product. Wood doors typically require an overhang, so you will want to take that into consideration for your replacement project. That means that wood doors might help increase your home’s energy efficiency, and even reduce noise from the outdoors.
  • Because wood is a natural material that can be shaped in an assortment of ways, wooden doors can be custom made to fit almost any size of doorway. And it isn’t difficult to insert glass windows or pieces into a custom door for added light.
  • According to Consumer Reports, wood is one of the ideal door materials for resisting wear and tear. Wood doors are less likely to dent and scratch and are less of a hassle to repair. However, to keep them looking their best, they require regular painting or varnishing on a frequent basis.

The entryway is the focal point of any home.
