Top Three Shopping TipsCustom Front Doors

If you've only ever known about premade doors, then custom front doors may come as a pleasant surprise. Some homeowners may require them out of necessity. They have older homes, for example, and the door opening sizes are charmingly unique. Maybe you have other needs that make custom doors a must for you. However, maybe you just want a door made to your specifications.

Whatever your reason for buying a custom front door, you'll need to be well-informed. So discover what your options are if you need a special size or want a one-of-a-kind door. If you're not even sure where to start with a custom front door, that's okay, too. Learn some tips and tricks for figuring out what to pick.

Sized to Fit

For many homeowners, one of the first reasons for choosing a custom front door is size. Newer homes are generally built with standardized door openings, so you should be able to find a door that fits from any manufacturer. However, if your home is older, the door openings are often smaller or otherwise non-standard. In addition, maybe you have a standard door opening, but would like to enlarge it for accessibility or other purposes. There could be multiple reasons for why standard-size doors aren't an option for you. Whatever the basis, in many cases, other door sizes are available even if they're not commonly listed. Most manufacturers offer specially-sized doors beyond the standard stock. Some non-standard sizes may be offered as an option, but if not, just ask.

A Door of Your Own

Although size is a common concern when selecting a custom front door, it might not be your concern. Another popular reason for choosing custom is the chance to customize anything and everything about your door. It could be something as basic as the material, the color, or the number of panels, for example. It could also be more personalized than that. With custom front doors, for instance, you can choose to have glass panels and you can also choose to have those customized to your specifications. Pick clear glass or decorative panels and pick as many as you want. Add sidelites and a transom, if you wish. If you want your front door's appearance to be exclusive to your home, then you can make it happen.

Pick Your Battles

With so much choice, buying a custom front door can be fun. However, it can also become overwhelming. There are so many choices! If you don't want to make a lot of decisions, then you don't have to. You can customize only a few features if you want. Decide the basic look you're after and figure out how much upkeep you're willing to do. That's an easy way to narrow down your door choices and you'll have to do it whether you buy custom or premade. Once you've got that figured, add in some custom touches. If you don't know where to start, browse the options on the site. They can give you a good idea of what's possible and maybe spark your imagination.

Choosing Custom Front Doors

Shopping for a new front door can be overwhelming. There are so many choices out there and after you’ve been shopping for a while, you may still be frustrated. You may think that none of the premade choices you’ve seen out there are exactly what you’re looking for. This is when it’s time to consider a custom front door. Don’t click now because you heard the work custom and could only see dollar signs because you have some very cost-effective options to choose from. With a custom front door, you can choose every option, like:

  • Size
  • Finish
  • Decorative and functional options

With custom front doors, the sky’s the limit, well nearly. Because you know what you like, you are open to find combinations that suit you will still sticking close to the budget you set. So, if you want a custom front door that matches an unusual-looking home or a door that will be the focal point of a more traditional home, custom front doors are worth a second look. You aren’t limited to just a couple of finishes or door surface designs either. A beautiful front door is one of the easiest ways to add curb appeal to your home and custom front doors make it even easier.

If It Fits

For many people, premade doors are an easy option because they come in very standardized sizes, and you don’t have to make a whole bunch of decisions. However, you may have an older home whose door openings aren’t the standard size. That means you’ll need to look beyond the usual selection. With custom front doors, you can get just the size you need. In addition, custom sizes are not as difficult to find as you might think. Some, if not most, manufacturers stock a range of custom-sized doors beyond the standard sizes, so if you need a special size, you should be able to find it.

However, you can use a custom front door even if your current door opening is a standard size. Maybe you want to change the size of your door opening—make it larger, for example. If that’s your choice, you don’t have to worry that you won’t find a door to fit because as you design the change of the opening, you’ll be able to ensure your door is large enough too. Custom front doors make your choices a lot simpler so look at the options and talk to the salesperson.

It’s Optional

Of course, for many homeowners, the most attractive feature of custom front doors is the ability to customize almost every option. Take the most basic option, for example—the material. Whether you want a metal front door, a wooden front door, or a fiberglass front door, you can get a custom front door in your choice of material. Do you want the door to have a flat, paneled, or carved surface? Do you want hardware that is unique and stands-out, or should it blend well and be very cost-efficient? You can then choose from options like windows or finishes.

Of course, not all choices will be available for all types of doors. For example, if you just can’t live without a front door with a wood finish, you’re better off choosing fiberglass or actual wood than a metal door. That’s because fiberglass (and wood, obviously) have a more realistic wood finish. However, that still leaves you with a lot of choices because you’ll be selecting the color and amount of grain you want to see. And if you’re not tied to wood, that opens up a world of options also because you can also choose from colors early in the manufacturing process.

Keeping Up

No matter what kind of custom front door you choose, before you make that final choice, be sure to familiarize yourself with the kind of maintenance it will require. If it’s wood, sealing, staining, or painting will be in your future. If it’s steel, you’ll need to help keep it dry but also ensure that there isn’t any rust that builds up on it. Fiberglass/composite doors are manufactured so there is very little maintenance other than spraying them off every once in a while. If you have glass panes in them, how much cleaning will they need? Thinking about these while designing your new front door may make narrowing down your decision a lot easier.

For instance, maybe you would prefer to install your custom front door and do as little maintenance as possible once you’re finished. Or maybe you love tinkering around the house and don’t mind doing little fixes ever so often. No matter which category fits you, you will find the custom front door that fits that category. And once you find that custom front door, be sure to keep up with the maintenance that it needs. You’re making a good investment here and you want to keep it that way.

Expensive Front Doors

When it is time to update your front door, or you’re busy planning for all of the pieces of your new build and the builders grade just isn’t going to cut it, because your investment must look the best, expensive front doors may be your best option.

You have options to choose from so look a little closer. read more
