Factors to Consider When Selecting an Exterior Door
- Door Style
- Glass Options
- Fire Rating
- Energy Efficiency
- Accent Windows
Your Front Door is More Than Just an Entryway
The main and obvious purpose of an entryway door is to provide a way into a home, but your front door and other entry doors also provide security, privacy, and energy efficiency. The door material, door style, door knob, and the type, size, and placement of glass can all make a difference in how the door looks and functions. Some factors to consider when selecting an exterior door include:
- Material: Common entryway door materials include wood, fiberglass, steel, and aluminum. All vary in price range, appearance, level of security, and energy efficiency. There are several things to know about each material, so get in touch with the contractors at Americraft Siding & Windows for advice on which is best for your home.
- Appearance: The style of door you want will depend on your personal preference as well as what will look good with the rest of the home. There are solid panel doors, various styles of panels, decorative designs, doors with windows, and sliding doors that are often used for entryways in the back of the house.
The climate in Texas can be harsh, from intense sun and heat to heavy rain storms. This can make protecting your patio or deck and spending time outdoors in these spaces difficult. But with a professionally designed and installed patio or deck cover from Americraft Siding & Windows, you can both protect your investment and spend as much time outside as you please. Our general contractors have years of experience creating a variety of shade structures that complement the look of your home.

The Importance Of A Secure, Efficient Entry Door
- Security: The door knob and locking mechanism, the thickness of the door and glass, and the material all play a role in the overall security of an entry door. You may want to consider choosing a fire-rated door as well, which can prevent a potential fire from damaging the home. How the door is mounted and installed is also a factor. With Americraft, you can rest assured that security and quality installations are top priorities.
- Energy Efficiency: A door’s energy efficiency is designated by its R-value and U-value. Materials with a higher R-value provide better insulation than lower R-value ratings. U-values are used to determine the insulating efficiency of a window inside the door. The door frame, hardware, spacers, and glass glazing all factor into the door’s energy efficiency.
