Find the Replacement Door Thats Right for You

An important part of your Denver-area home, doors are used every day and can be a primary part of your home’s curb appeal and overall style both inside and out. So when you decide to replace your entry or patio doors, picking the best option shouldn’t be a decision you take lightly.

At the start of your shopping for a replacement door, here are some key options to consider:

What type of door do you want?

If you’re replacing your entry door, consider a material type that is right for the style of your home. In homes with wood windows or homes that feature a variety of other wood accents in the architecture, a wood entry door may be the best choice. Fiberglass and steel entry doors also match any home type, stand up against harsh weather and are affordable for nearly any budget.

Before choosing replacement patio doors, make sure to decide whether you prefer hinged or sliding door options. Hinged patio doors offer beautiful style and the widest possible opening. For tighter spaces, sliding patio doors are the ideal choice to fit your needs while still providing an exceptional look at your view outside.

Improve Your Security

When you go through the door replacement process, take a moment to look at the security you have in place. Are you content with the performance of your locks and strength of your glass? A new replacement door can help increase your home security in a number of ways.

  • Locks: A number of lock options can strengthen the security of your entry door or patio door. For the most security, go with a multipoint locking system, which locks in two to three places. On sliding patio doors, a multipoint lock features a lock at the top and bottom. On both entry and patio-hinged doors, the locks are the top, bottom and center.
  • Glass: In products where glass makes up most of the door, the glass plays a significant role in safeguarding your family and your home from harsh weather as well as intruders. When discussing your new entry or patio replacement door, make sure to ask about the glass options available for the door your selected model. One of the strongest materials out there is laminated glass, which is created by including a polymer layer between two sheets of glass. This inner layer holds the glass together even if it’s shattered.

Additional security features – Home automation is a growing trend, and that includes safety aspects for your doors. With Pella® Insynctive®, your doors are synced with the system’s status indicator so you can see whether the door is open or closed and locked or unlocked.
