How to choose the right front entry door

Your front door is a big part of the curb appeal of your home. It’s also where you welcome guests and it helps them form a first impression of the house itself. That’s why our doors are more than simply barriers to keep people out. They’re also places where you can make a statement about your and your family’s style. At Canadian Comfort Windows & Doors, we carry a wide variety of doors, windows and siding that can help you create the home of your dreams.

If you’re looking for a new front entry door, you don’t want to have to replace it anytime soon. To be sure that you’ve considered your purchase from every angle before buying, here are just a few points you should think about when looking for new doors.

Privacy and security
Obviously, privacy and security should be your most important criteria when thinking about new front doors. If your door isn’t secure, then any other benefits it may offer won’t really matter. Whether you prefer fiberglass, or steel doors, each of these materials can provide a solid barrier that will keep your home safe and private. Where you have a lot of choice, however, is the hardware. What kind of lock system or handle you’d like is up to you. We can customize a door to your preferred security level. If you enjoy having windows in your home’s door, we also provide glass options at varying levels of privacy to keep the inside of your home safe from prying eyes.

The colour is one of the main ways a door can make a statement. Whether you like a more daring, bright colour, an eye-catching black or a softer, welcoming colour is up to you. You should be aware, however, that not all kinds of doors can be painted with equal ease. With the expertise of our door manufacturer, Entryguard, they’ll take care of the painting of your door upon purchase. If you like to keep your home’s look fresh, be sure that your doors can be easily repainted.

Perhaps the most important thing to consider when it comes to your front door’s aesthetic is its style. There are too many different combinations of panel and window arrangements to mention them all. Be sure, however, to pick the door that matches your family’s taste. Would you enjoy coming home to the opulence of executive panels that give your door the illusion of extra width? Or, would you prefer a classic model? The choice is yours!

No matter what your style is, we at Canadian Comfort Windows & Doors have the option that’s right for you. Contact us today to find the front entry door that’s right for you or visit us at our location in Nepean to see some samples.
