A front door represents a great deal more than a mere utilitarian entrance gate.

Rather, it is testament to its residents’ personality, in addition to setting the “tone” for the entire front facade.

This is why doing business with a specialized door and window manufacturer is the key to obtaining a premium quality custom product that will meet all of your needs. Only an entrance door maker specialized in custom-made entry doors has the ability of designing a product of such a high quality that it will leave your guests in total awe.

Read on to discover the 10 main reasons why your new entry door will impress your family and friends

10. Accessories.

Accessories allow you to personalize your front door and improve its functionality even more specifically. Accessories include decorative panel mouldings, bells, knockers, door viewers (peep holes), German letter box (mail slot), and distinctive framings. An efficient accessory choice can definitely help your front entry door stand out and enhance not only its esthetics but also its practicality.

9. Hybrid Product.

A Canadian exterior door manufacturer has successfully mastered the art of designing hybrid entry door systems. This means two completely different design styles inside and outside. For example, a more traditional country look on the outside combined with a sleek contemporary look inside. Your wish can now become reality! Or, what if you want the sturdiness of an exterior steel entry door, yet would prefer the beautiful character of wood inside? This is also now possible. In short, your options are truly limitless and bound only by your imagination. When you don’t know what to choose, choose a hybrid door.

8. Size.

If space and volume allow for it, consider buying an oversized product. When done tastefully, it’s not only your entire front facade that benefits from it, but also your overall home value. Seek the help of a specialized manufacturer to create a spectacular door that will undoubtedly make a statement.

7. Ease of Operation.

It’s well known, premium quality doors designed by specialized manufacturers operate exceptionally well. Opening and closing are carried out effortlessly, without any friction. Your guests will definitely notice your front door’s smooth performance, a clear indicator of a superior quality product.

6. Uniqueness.

You dream of an original one-of-a-kind entry door? You have a very clear and specific idea for your door, but such model doesn’t exist in the traditional “off-the-shelf” market? Then call upon door experts! Their team of designers will help you create your dream door, the one that you will meet exactly all of your needs. Dazzle your guests with an exceptional door.

5. Door Handle.

If there is one thing your friends and family will certainly manipulate during their visit, it’s your door handle! Impress them with a tubular or rectangular pull bar handle or an ultra-safe yet easy-to-operate multi-point handle set system. To ensure optimal performance, have it professionally installed by experts in the factory.

4. Type of Glass.

We are not talking about classic thermopane windows here, but rather stained glass windows, these coloured pieces of glass often assembled in a lead framework. Very few manufacturers these days still offer the option of inserting stained glass in a door window. Yet, this thousand-year-old art tradition has no equivalence when it comes to light fluctuations and decoration.

3. Colour.

It is commonly said that your entry door colour is a reflection of who you are. So what does your door say about you? Are you composed and subtle like gray? Optimistic and surprising like yellow? Energetic and nostalgic like red? Traditional and calm like blue? Or, rather chic and classic like black? Dare to be bold. Some specialized door and window manufacturers are even capable of creating customized colours based on a sample.

2. Material.

Why not be charmed, day after day, by a high-quality door material? Solid and sturdy, a 22- or 24-gauge galvanized steel door coated with an ultra-resistant paint exhibits a nice sleek and polished finish. Wood, with its character and unequalled richness, will always remain a coveted material. Durable and extremely resistant to shocks, fiberglass doors with a textured wood-grain finish that can be painted or stained distinguish themselves by their high level of refinement and sophistication. With all of these available options, do not hesitate to innovate and differentiate yourself from the generic bland doors sold in big box stores.

1. Look.

Finally, choosing adequately the right front door style for your house is vital. Contemporary or country? Classic or avant-garde? The architectural style of your entry door must absolutely fit with your house’s architecture. When building a new luxurious contemporary home, make sure to choose wisely: opt for a door manufacturer specialized in contemporary style designs. Do not let a common and insignificant door ruin your front facade. There must be concordance in both the looks and the quality.
