Types of Entry Doors

There are a number of choices when it comes to installing an entry door. Below are just a few of the most common terms you need to know when ordering exterior doors. Entry doors may be made of fiberglass, wood or steel.

  • Slab doors – A slab door is what you need when you are replacing an existing door and already have the door frame and hinges in place. A slab door is simply the door without the frame or hardware. Usually slab doors are pre-drilled for the doorknob and lock set. If you're using a non-standard type of entry lock, you'll need to let the contractor know this when you order your door.
  • Pre-Hung Doors – Pre-hung doors, as the name implies, include the door frame and hinges. Sometimes, the threshold and weather stripping are also included. Like slab doors, pre-hung doors are usually pre-drilled for door hardware.
  • Lite – Lites are the narrow window panels that go on either side of the entry door.
  • Grille – A grille is the metal or plastic insert that makes the window portion of the door look like it's divided into separate panes.

What You Need To Know About Entry Door Installation

A professional installation can make all the difference in how your entry door looks and functions. Hanging the door so that it is plumb is essential to its easy opening and closing. In addition, having your door hardware and lock set installed by a professional help ensure your family's security and safety.

Although not always obvious to the naked eye, entry doors have changed a lot in recent years. Doors today incorporate a number of energy efficient technologies and composite materials that were not available in years past. If you want to give your home an elegant wooden door, you are no longer confined to simply buying a wooden door. Today’s major door manufacturers can custom manufacture fiberglass entry doors that offer exceptional energy efficiency and durability with a natural looking wood finish.

We can help you navigate the choices on the market and help you make a decision that best fits your home and your budget.
