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

Winters in St. Paul 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 in this sometimes dreary time of year is by adding a wooden replacement door. The detailed wood doors from Pella Windows and Doors are crafted to complement your home and insert warmth to your entryway. Each Pella St. Paul collection offers a different style for your St. Paul home:

  • Traditional: The Traditional Collection features unique glass designs and detailed wood panels for a timeless look.
  • Craftsman: The Craftsman Collection highlights simple, symmetrical detailing with a steadfast make.
  • Classic: The Classic Collection adds elegance and charm to the 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 walk up to your home. Textured glass and decorative iron accents add grandeur and character to your entryway.

Now that you have a better understanding of the types of wooden doors available to you through 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 additional factors you should discuss:

  • 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 the environment, 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 might 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 a variety 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 increased 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 easily repairable. However, to keep the doors looking their best, they require regular painting or varnishing on a frequent basis.

The entryway is the central point of any home. If you are wanting an inviting upgrade this winter, or just want to try out a more unique look for your home, talk to our Pella Windows and Doors team about wood replacement doors. Stop by our St. Paul showroom or book an appointment with us online.
