What to look for in classic front doors

Classic entry doors come in a variety of designs, some incorporating glass panes, sidelights, or even double-entry doors. Depending on the material you choose for your classic front door, you can have a stained or painted wood front door or a colored fiberglass or steel door. Classic wood front doors emphasize the grain in the wood to complement the home’s traditional style and decor. Painting classic front doors adds a pop of color or a subtle hue to a traditional home that catches the eye and boosts your home’s curb appeal. Whether you choose a stained or painted front entry door, your choice of classic front doors can express your own personal style and creativity.

Different styles of classic front doors

Classic styles of front doors have been around for a while, some dating back several centuries. For instance, you can choose from double front doors, sometimes called French doors, that give an elegant look. A traditional front door with the addition of sidelights and a transom can turn your entryway into a grand experience for guests. Another classic front door design is to incorporate multiple panes of glass, and some even have arched or oval glass panes for visual appeal. Depending on the style of front door you choose, don’t be afraid to paint it an unexpected color. That pop of color can take a classic door from a homey appeal to an eye-catching design piece.

Learn classic front doors’ terminology

When shopping for classic front doors, it helps to understand the terms used to describe the design features. Here is the short list of terms you need to understand to help you make a better decision. First, doors are either in-swing or out-swing, meaning they open inward into the house or outward. Next, a left-hand door has the hinges on the left side when viewed from the outside looking in. As expected, a right-hand door has hinges on the right side. Also, some classic front doors have "lites" which are panes of glass incorporated into the door. A divided lite includes several panes of glass divided by a grille which is plastic, wooden, or metal pieces that separate the glass.

Wide Appeal

Truly classic front doors generally have a wide appeal, because they often resemble designs most people have regularly encountered throughout their lives. Remembering your childhood while growing up or your first house, more than likely a classic styled front door was on it. The traditional aesthetic also tends to be viewed as timeless and elegant, or even slightly regal, helping to ensure it maintains its appeal over time. Do you remember walking up to your friend’s home that everyone said was rich and took in the appeal of the front door? That’s the warm yet reserved feeling your guests will get when coming to your home due to the classical styling of your front door.

A classic front door can make an entryway feel stately and formal, which many people prefer, especially if their interior’s design leans toward the traditional. In many cases, classic front doors either feature natural wood coloring because it was sealed or lightly stained, or a conventional paint color, like white or red, though you can make a traditional front door stand out from the crowd by choosing an unconventional stain or paint color, allowing you to blend the classic styling with current trends.

Material Choices

Because classic front doors are always in demand, you can often select from a wide range of materials that suit your budget and lifestyle. Usually, steel doors are the most cost-effective option and will definitely keep your belongings and family safe, though they may not feature the coveted wood grain look. The surface is easy to paint and resists damage, though scratches must be addressed quickly to avoid rusting. Easily recycled if it ever wears out, a steel front door is one of the most secure doors that is still very eco-friendly.

Fiberglass/composite classic front doors are incredibly low maintenance, and the surface can be cast to resemble natural wood too. With a simple wipe down the fiberglass door will be cleaned easily and there is no chance of rusting like other material will. They can also be easily painted or may come in finishes that mimic wood. Wood doors are the most expensive and require more maintenance but offer a significant amount of flexibility in regard to finish. Both stain and paint can be used to get the desired look, though it will need to be painted or sealed regularly to maintain the integrity of the material.

Questions And Answers

https://www.doors.com/front-doors/classic-front-doors

When should you replace your exterior front door?

If it’s drafty around your door, or if there’s damage or difficulty in opening and closing the door, it’s probably time to replace it. Replacing your front door will increase your home’s value, will save energy and will improve home security. With the added curb appeal, you’ll most likely recoup the cost of a front-door replacement when you sell your house.

What materials do front exterior doors come in?

You can buy wood front doors, fiberglass/composite, or steel, although steel doors are typically not part of a traditional or classic look.

What should I look for when buying a classic exterior door?

Whether doors are fiberglass or wood, it’s best to have a solid-core exterior door rather than a hollow-core door. Solid core offers a higher level of security and insulation. Doors that are Energy Star qualified have tighter fitting frames and energy-efficient cores. If there’s glass in the door, panes have double- or triple-paneled insulating glass to reduce heat transfer. The best doors have a limited lifetime warranty, which may be transferrable to the next owner.

What are the advantages of fiberglass doors?

Fiberglass is available in many different styles, including more classic looks, and can have a smooth surface or an embossed wood-grain texture. They can also be painted. They’re very durable and more energy-efficient than wood, and are dent-resistant and low-maintenance. While not as expensive as solid oak or mahogany, fiberglass doors are still pricey and should be installed professionally.

What are the advantages of wood doors?

Solid wood probably comes to mind when you think of classic exterior doors—solid wood is warm and rich-looking. They resist wear and tear and are the least likely to dent (and scratches are easy to fix). But, solid wood doors can be pricey and require regular painting or varnishing.

What’s the cost of a classic/traditional door?

Depending on where you live, basic lighter-weight fiberglass or engineered wood doors can start at $200 and go into the thousands for high-quality fire-rated, Energy Star rated, or decorative doors. Professional installation fees can range from a few hundred dollars to a couple of thousand, depending on the complexity of installation.

What kind of hardware looks good with classic entry doors?

While pre-hung doors include some hardware, you’ll have to purchase knobs/handles and locks/lock systems, hinges (if it’s not included with your door), and maybe a door knocker to complete the classic door look. Often, brass, bronze or satin finishes or wrought iron are popular choices for classic doors.

What’s a “classic” style door look like?

If you have a colonial or cape style house, classic designs are doors that have a certain symmetry, featuring 2 to 6 panels. Another classic touch is employing symmetrical sidelights on each side of the door. Popular colors are white, black, red and rich wood tones, but don’t let that prevent you from experimenting with a bold color.

We no longer have to build everything from hand or drill every hole. Now, it is possible for the average person to replace doors without the help of a handy man.

How To Replace Door Weather Seal

A door weather seal is placed between the bottom of an exterior door to seal the gap between the door and the floor. The weather seal stops inside air from escaping into the outside, and air from outdoors coming inside, preventing uncomfortable conditions and increased energy consumption.

On average, weatherstripping lasts 3- 5 years, although some products last much longer and some much less. The type of weatherstripping selected and care of the product both affect the duration of time it’ll last. There’s also a plethora of things that may cause the weatherstripping to deteriorate or otherwise become damaged.  Pets and humans can both cause damage to weatherstripping, as can pests, the age of the material, improper care, and various weather conditions.

Deteriorating or damaged weatherstripping allows air to escape from the home and allows outside air to come inside. It also suffices as an entrance point for pests like ants, spiders, cockroaches, and bees who want nothing more than to make themselves right at home underneath your roof. Inspecting the door weather seal yearly is ideal. As you inspect the weatherstripping, look for signs of deterioration and damage, including:

  • Weather seal that’s bent or otherwise lost shape
  • Dry, brittle, or cracked weather seal
  • Losing adhesive foam, or foam that has pulled away from its fixture
  • Missing adhesive foam
  • Missing nails

If damage is noted, don’t delay learning how to replace door weather seal with the step-by-step guide below. You’re letting heat and air escape your home, costing a considerable amount on your heating costs. Outside air and pests coming indoors create a big nuisance. Temperatures inside your home are likely uncomfortable. You’re suffering without merit, since a DIY weatherstrip replacement is a simple procedure that protects your home, comfort, and peace of mind. Expert door seal replacement isn’t necessary, as any homeowner can complete the task in a matter of hours with a few tools in-hand. Gather the items you’ll need and prepare for a day of DIY weatherstripping fun.

Solid Front Doors

When it comes to buying a front door, security is often at the forefront of your mind. Since the door serves as a physical barrier between the interior of your home and the outside, it only makes sense that you want something durable, making solid front doors an ideal option. Solid front doors don’t have the structural shortcomings of their hollow core brethren, which typically have a honeycomb-style cardboard interior. Instead, the internal material is denser and studier, making it harder to break through. Typically, solid front doors are constructed of wood or fiberglass/composite. Wooden solid front doors are either made solely out of pieces of wood that are precisely fit together or from a single piece of wood, though the latter option is significantly less common in today’s marketplace. Since fiberglass/composite is a moldable material, it is generally a single piece when complete. read more
