When it comes to choosing an entry door for your home, it’s one of the most important decisions you can make both in function and in form. Your front door is the first thing to greet you when you come home at the end of the day, and it’s the first impression when your guests arrive. A beautiful front door can bring your home’s exterior design together and set your home apart as one of the most stunning exteriors on the block. That’s why it’s important to choose a door that works well for the overall design of your home.


At The Window Store in Minnesota, our expert window and door installation contractors help homeowners choose the right doors for their home’s security, energy savings, and design. In this blog entry, we’ll talk about some important considerations when choosing an entry door for your home.


The right door for your home offers all of these benefits:

1.   Energy-efficient Protection

The best front doors combine protection from the elements with Energy Star efficiency. An airtight entry door will help reduce your monthly energy costs while keeping extreme weather outside your home for up to three decades.

2.   Elegant Design

Entry doors today are available in an almost limitless range of designs and styles. We can help you create a custom door design that works well for any architectural style or design. With options like fiberglass and wood or even the enduring performance of steel, there’s a perfect entry door for every home. Add stunning windows and sidelites in any shape you can dream up to complete the look.

3.   Powerful Security

When you think of burglars, you might automatically imagine the stereotype of someone dressed in a ski mask sneaking in through your window. But the truth is that most burglaries happen in broad daylight when someone in plain clothing knocks on your door. When no one is home, they try the handle to see if it’s easily broken into and walk right in like they belong there.


But most burglars want an easy target, and when a front door is not easily penetrated, they move on and look for an easier entry down the block. Thwart burglars before they can happen with a heavy-duty deadbolt, reinforced plate, and wide-angle peephole.
