Top Three Shopping TipsExterior Front Entry Doors

Exterior front entry doors are the first thing visitors see when they come to your home, so purchasing the right door is a big decision. You want a door that offers excellent curb appeal, weathers extremely well, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Today’s manufacturers offer a wide variety of front door styles in different materials and with varying options. These choices mean you can customize your exterior front entry doors into a unique style statement. It also means you might experience a bit of confusion on where to start. Here are three shopping tips before ordering your new exterior front entry doors.

Do you need an exterior front entry door system?

Manufacturers today create a complete exterior front entry door system that comes pre-hung in its frame. This means the bottom edge connects flush with the threshold for a weather barrier, and the door comes with weather stripping already installed around its perimeter. Unless you’re only looking for a simple replacement door, it’s best to get the exterior front entry door system because it comes complete with hinges and locks designed as part of the system. Some new exterior front entry doors come with sidelites you can have installed to offer a new and more interesting look to your home. The biggest benefit of buying an exterior front entry door system is that all components come from the same manufacturer and are designed to work together smoothly. They also provide better energy efficiency.

How to measure for exterior front entry doors

If you’re simply replacing an existing exterior front entry door, measure your door’s width, its thickness which is usually 1 3/4 inches, and its height which is normally 6 feet 8 inches. If you’re buying a brand new exterior front entry door system that’s pre-hung, you need to measure a bit more. Since you’ll be replacing the door jamb as well as the door, you must measure the door jamb’s thickness. Start at the inside of the exterior molding and measure to the inside of the interior molding. This gives you the wall’s thickness. Now stand inside your home looking at the front door. Is the handle on the right or left side? On the right means you order a right-hand door, and the left means you order a left-hand door.

Are you considering glass?

Called glazed entry doors, these exterior front entry doors offer a wide variety of glass options to choose from, such as clear or etched glass, beveled or leaded glass, and much more. You may choose to have panes of glass called "lites" in certain panels of your front entry doors. It’s best to make sure all lites are either double- or triple-glazed to get the best energy efficiency from your new front door. Another option that can save you money if you’re considering a leaded glass window is to opt for caming (the lead strip between panes of glass) that’s not real lead or brass; both options are more expensive than false caming.

Size

What front door size is right for you will depend on the size of your entryway. Standard front entry doors are generally 80 inches in length, 36 inches in width and about 2 inches in thickness (80X36X2). Depending on the house, it’s possible that your entryway is different and might need a taller, larger, thicker, or wider entry door. In some cases, a double entry door may be more suitable for your needs.

Moreover, to make sure you choose the perfect sized door, it is also important to take into account any transoms, sidelights, or other decorative elements. Make sure your front entry door is wide enough to easily accommodate bulky furniture items. In case you are still not sure what door size is right for your home, don’t hesitate to get in touch with an expert for help.

How To Paint Metal Front Door

You may think of painting walls in different rooms of your home, arts and crafts but you may not have considered painting a metal front door. This type of door gets drilled by the sun every day and the metal may get very hot. Through time, the pain is going to start peeling off your door. In just a couple years after painting it, the door may look like a cracked egg all over. When others come to your home, they won’t be all too thrilled. Some people say that lighter paint is going to help with this.

However, if that isn’t something you want to do, you may need to try out different things before finally figuring it out. There are many paints and primers out there so you may need to mix and match until it is just right. The one thing to remember is that you should only pain when there is shade and not when the sun is fully out.
