Top Three Shopping TipsExterior Front Doors With Glass

The benefits of exterior front doors with glass can be numerous. For instance, depending on the size of your glass panels, you can have a quick way to check who’s outside or a beautiful view of the neighborhood. In addition, these doors let in light. However, exterior front doors with glass can come with some special things to consider.

Find out of what some of those are before you start shopping. For example, learn how glass functions as an insulator and how you can improve its performance. Then find out how to privacy-proof your exterior front doors with glass, if you’d like. Most importantly, see how you can have a front door with glass and have a more secure home.

Glass Sealed Tight

Among door materials, glass is notorious for its poor reputation as an insulator. It can be beautiful and it lets in light, but it also can let in drafts. And it can let heat escape. To combat these common problems, you should make sure that your glass is reinforced to protect against heat loss. One way to do this is by installing multiple layer glass. Double-paned or double-glazed glass should be enough for most homes. Triple-paned glass is available now, but the extra cost might not be worth it to you unless your utility bills are particularly high. In addition, another option is specialty thermal glass. This includes options like low-e or low-emissivity glass, which is made both to prevent heat loss and to reflect heat inside.

Questions of Privacy

Exterior front doors with glass seem great when you’re thinking of them purely on an aesthetic level. However, once you start thinking about living with them, you might have more practical concerns, like privacy. Luckily, you don’t have to give up your privacy to have beautiful exterior front doors with glass. Opting for frosted or otherwise decorative glass can make sure your home receives a lot of light without opening it up to the neighborhood. However, if you’d prefer clear glass for whatever reason, then considering covering the glass. Coverings like blinds, shades, and curtains are available and can fit in with most home styles. Blocking the glass doesn’t just protect your privacy, by the way—it can also keep your home safe by hiding your possessions from curious eyes.

Exterior Glass Security

Glass panels in doors can be beautiful, let in light, and allow you a view of your neighborhood. However, they can also be a weak spot in your home security. If the glass in your door is close to the door handle, for example, then it’s easy to break the glass and open the door. To prevent that, consider installing the door hardware away from the glass. If that’s not an option for some reason, then you can choose glass that’s been reinforced for security. Called laminated glass, this glass reacts similarly to auto glass when it’s hit—it doesn’t shatter, but instead holds together. This kind of glass requires a lot of force and noise to break through, which most would-be burglars will avoid.

Three Things to Consider Before Purchasing Exterior Front Doors with Glass

Exterior front doors with glass can no doubt add a special touch to the look of your home. If you currently have a glass panel in the door or you have side lights built in, you know how great it is to have all that extra light shine in. If not, they are a great addition but there are some things that you need to consider before you run out and buy the first one you find. Color and material are important for your choices so look at the options however, three important things often forgotten by home owners when they consider making this purchase include:

  • Double Glazing
  • Privacy
  • Cost

Double glazing is one of the most important factors when it comes to doors that have glass, but privacy and cost are still extremely important. Your door should add to your home in every aspect and when purchasing a new door, it is better to consider it an investment. Not only will the new door add to the value of your home but if you choose right it can also help your home to be more efficient when it comes to energy costs.

Double Glazing

So, what exactly is double glazing? Double glazing is when two panes of glass are used instead of just a single pane. This extra pane allows for there to be a reduction in the hot and cold transmission between the indoors and outdoors and most people don't even think to consider the fact that it also aids in noise reduction.

The gap between the two pains is also what helps to keep down the noise and help increase energy efficiency. Put your hand on the inside pane and then go outside and touch the outside pane and you will generally notice quite a difference in temperature.

In products which are less costly and of lower quality, the gap is more than likely just going to be air but in units that are of a higher quality you might find that a gas like argon is used to fill in the gap. Using a gas such as this results in performance that is superior. You may have seen a door where there is a slight discoloring along the top or bottom edge or a little moisture between the panes. This means sure you have double glazed (double pane) windows but something has damaged the seal, so the gas has escaped, or the air became contaminated with something.

Privacy

Any time you are dealing with windows, whether it is on your door or throughout the rest of your home, you want to take privacy into consideration. Your home is your safe place, it is a place where can be alone, do what you please, wear what you want, and you don't want to have windows that end up taking that way from you. In many cases you can use various glass materials in the door such as frosted, colored, or stained glass, but clear glass, often with an etching on it, are most common.

If you live on a large lot or in an area where you don't have neighbors living very close, then this is likely not going to be a concern for you at all, but for those who might live in an area that is more heavily populated, privacy an important concern. In this case, you will likely want to find windows that allow the natural light in and allow you to see out without allowing others outside to see as clearly looking in. Consider the options and size of the window pane you have in your new door as well as the possibility of a small piece of curtain fabric on it.

Cost

The cost of your entry door will vary greatly based on the type of material the door is made of, how energy efficient it is, the size and type of windows that are inserted, and even things like hardware can increase the cost of the door. When reviewing materials for your front door, not only are you concerned with appearance, but also with the security your door will provide. It you thought a steel door would look too industrial, look again because they can have a beautiful glass pane installed that is shatter resistant.

With a good door, you are going to find that over time the money you spent on the door is recouped and then some. The upfront cost of a door, especially a nice one with glass is going to be a little higher due to higher quality, but the door is the main focal point of your home as people approach so you want one that will last you for years to come and also one that is going to be appealing to the eyes. If you need to consider resale for the future, be aware of what this investment will make on your home. There are some purchases where you might choose to skimp getting the least expensive option, don't do this with your door.

Questions And Answers

https://www.doors.com/front-doors/exterior-front-doors-with-glass

Do glass front doors offer enough privacy?

If your home is more secluded, then a full glass door shouldn’t be an issue. You can also opt for frosted glass or textured glass, which obscures the view from outside but still lets in light. Every style of decorative glass comes with a privacy rating of 1 to 10, with 1 being the least private. If you have a glass front door in a busy neighborhood, you can also use internal blinds or hang curtains to cover the glass inside. If you want the privacy of frosted glass, you can still have a small clear area to peer through to see who’s at the door.

Do glass front doors offer enough security?

To prevent break-ins, double-paned doors are advisable. They’ll not only provide you with a higher level of security, since they’ll be more difficult to break, but will offer additional insulation, which would otherwise result in higher energy costs.

What kind of styles are available for glass front doors?

Full glass doors come in a variety of designs and styles that can complement your home. Contemporary doors feature full glass panels with modern hardware and framing. You would usually see divided panes and a wooden framed door on a more traditional house. Besides having a full-paneled glass door, you can have half glass, side glass panels, arched windows at the top of the door, or a combination of side glass panels and a window.

What type of decorative glass can you get for front doors?

Besides clear glass, you can get frosted, opaque or decorative glass, which would still let the light in yet would maintain some privacy. Textured glass, depending on the pattern, can obscure the view inside or slightly distort it. Stained glass or art glass is another option (in plain or colored glass) or in architectural motifs to enhance your front entryway.

Why should glass front doors be made of tempered glass?

Tempered glass is a strong safety glass that has been treated with heat or chemicals to increase its strength. This not only means the glass is harder to break, but if it’s broken, it breaks into small pieces with softer, rounded edges, rather than sharp jagged ones. Many building codes require using tempered glass in doors.

How do glass front doors fare in warmer climates?

Double-paned glass doors help keep heat or cool air inside your home, but if you live in warmer climates, double-paned glass with good UV protection that is also tinted will reduce the adverse of effects of heat pouring in.

What else should you consider when choosing a glass front door?

The price and installation of glass doors is more expensive than other types of entry doors. Make sure the weather-stripping and thresholds on the door align properly so that everything is air-tight. There shouldn’t be any gaps by the glass that allow air to pass through—double-paned glass (at the very least) is a must for energy efficiency. For greater security, consider a double-cylinder deadbolt lock or multi-point locking system.
