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

Winters in Monroe come with a lot of weather changes: colder temperatures, wetter environments and cloudy 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 Windows and Doors are crafted to complement your home and insert warmth to your entryway. Each Pella of Connecticut collection offers a different style for your Monroe home:

  • Traditional: The Traditional Collection features unique glass designs and detailed wood panels for a timeless look.
  • 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 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 lots of advantages to wood replacement doors besides their style and warmth. Here are a few features to consider:

  • Because the doors are made 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 matchless. You can also emphasize your wood’s natural grain with stain.
  • Depending on the weather in your area, 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 could help increase your home’s energy efficiency, and even decrease 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. It is also easy to insert glass windows or pieces into a custom door for increased light.
  • According to Consumer Reports, wood is one of the greatest 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 the doors looking their best, they require routine painting or varnishing on a regular basis.

The entryway is the central point of any home.
