What You Need to Know about Wooden Front Doors with Glass

Wooden front doors are one of the most popular choices for home entryways and it’s not hard to figure out why. Many people just love the warm look of wood. Other people like wood for more practical reasons. Wooden front doors with glass can add the best of both worlds. You get the beautiful look of wood with the practicality of glass panels or inserts. Depending on the type of glass in your wooden front door, you may choose this type of door for:

  • Looks
  • Light
  • Looking Out

This just means that you may choose a wooden front door with glass that’s translucent so you can see who exactly is at your door. On the other hand, you may choose a wooden front door with glass that’s more opaque, because you want to let more light into your foyer, or simply because you like the design of the glass.

Sealing The Deal

Although many doors, no matter what the source material, are made insulated, inserting glass into a door can cut down on the effectiveness of insulation. There are ways around this, though. One way is to make sure that the glass is double glazed, which helps make up for the lack of insulation in a single pane. Double glazed glass comes in a few different types, including even smart types that are treated with a protective film.

And as with all doors, you should protect the areas around the wooden front door with glass, because you will actually get the most air loss there. Install a sweep to the bottom—they can fit any threshold—and install weatherstripping around the sides of the door.

Handling With Care

Maintaining wooden front doors is glass is not that different from simply maintaining a wooden front door. You should check the paint or finish on a regular basis, at least yearly. You’ll need to check more often if you live in an area where your door is exposed to a lot of sunlight or if you live in a region with severe weather. Your door may shrink or swell depending on the temperature outside. However, if your door sticks and you try to solve the issue by shaving it down, you’ll have gaps once your wooden front door shrinks again.

As far as maintaining the glass, the same principles apply. Check regularly for damage, like cracks. Most panels can be replaced if cracked. If you see moisture or fog, that’s also a sign that your glass panels need to be replaced.
