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

Published on

Winters in North Carolina might mean a lot of weather changes: colder temperatures, wetter environments and overcast skies. One of the best ways to warm up the look of your home throughout this sometimes dreary time of year is by adding a wooden replacement door. The detailed wood doors from Pella are crafted to complement your home and add warmth to your entryway. Each Pella of North Carolina collection offers a different style for your North Carolina home:

  • Traditional: The Traditional Collection features unique glass designs and detailed wood panels for a look that is timeless.
  • Craftsman: The Craftsman Collection offers simple, symmetrical detailing with a steadfast make.
  • Classic: The Classic Collection adds elegance and charm to a home with a historic feel, decorative designs, beveled glass and true divided-light grilles.
  • Old World European: The Old World European Collection takes guests back in time when they arrive at your home. Textured glass and decorative iron accents add grandeur and character to your entryway.

Now that have more information on the types of wooden doors available to you from Pella, how do know if a wooden door is appropriate for your home? 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 emphasize 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 usually require an overhang, so you will want to take that into consideration for your replacement project. That means that wood doors may help increase your home’s energy efficiency, and even diminish noise from the outdoors.
  • Because wood is a natural material that can be shaped in different ways, wooden doors can be custom made to fit almost any size of doorway. It is also easy to insert glass windows or pieces into a custom door for added light.
  • According to Consumer Reports, wood is one of the best door materials for resisting wear and tear. Wood doors are less likely to dent and scratch and are easier to repair. However, to keep them looking their best, they require ongoing painting or varnishing on a frequent basis.

The entryway is the main point of any home. If you are looking for an inviting upgrade this winter, or just want to try out a more unique look for your home, talk to our Pella team about wood replacement doors. Stop by our North Carolina showroom or arrange an appointment with us online.
