Find the Replacement Door Thats Right for You

An important part of your Newport-area home, doors are used every day and can be a main feature of your home’s curb appeal and overall look both inside and out. So when the time comes to replace your entry or patio doors, picking the best option shouldn’t be a decision you take lightly.

At the start of your search for a replacement door, here are some key options to consider:

What type of door do you want?

If you’re planning to replace your entry door, think about a material type that fits best with the style of your home. In homes with wood windows or homes that feature a lot of other wood accents in the architecture, a wood entry door may be the best choice. Fiberglass and steel entry doors also match any home type, last through harsh weather and are affordable for nearly any budget.

Before choosing replacement patio doors, make sure to settle on either hinged or sliding door options. Hinged patio doors offer exquisite style and the widest possible opening. For tighter spaces, sliding patio doors are a great choice to fit your needs while still providing an stunning look at your view outside.

Improve Your Security

When you go through the door replacement process, take a moment to consider the security you have in place. Are you content with the performance of your locks and strength of your glass? A new replacement door can help increase your home security in a number of ways.

  • Locks: A variety of lock options can boost the security of your entry door or patio door. For higher security, look for a multipoint locking system, which locks in two to three places. On sliding patio doors, a multipoint lock features a lock at the top and bottom. On both entry and patio-hinged doors, the locks are the top, bottom and center.
  • Glass: In cases where glass makes up most of the door, the glass plays a large role in safeguarding your family and your home from strong storms as well as intruders. When discussing your new entry or patio replacement door, make sure to ask about the glass options available for the door your selected model. One of the strongest materials available is laminated glass, which is created by including a polymer layer between two sheets of glass. This inner layer holds the glass together even if it’s shattered.

Additional security features – Home automation is a developing trend, and that includes safety features for your doors. With Pella® Insynctive®, your doors are synced with the system’s status indicator so you can simply see whether the door is open or closed and locked or unlocked.
