Tips For Choosing Your New Door

When you start shopping for a new front entry door, you might be surprised at just how many options there are. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, but with Greyrock by your side, we’ll help provide you with all of the information you need to make a decision that you can be confident in.

If you’re just getting started on choosing a new front door, you might be wondering where to begin. That’s why we’ve broken down the process of choosing a new door into just a few simple steps.


The first step in choosing the type of door you want is to decide on the material. Several years ago, almost all doors were made out of wood, but today, homeowners have many more options to choose from that are more durable and provide extra energy-saving benefits. While you can certainly still get a wood door if you prefer that style or if it matches your home’s aesthetic, you may want to look into the other materials that are available such as aluminum and fiberglass. Fiberglass, in particular, has become one of the most popular options because of its durability, low maintenance, and energy efficiency.

Just as important as the material is choosing the style. You’ll want to make sure that the door you choose fits the colors and design of your house. Do you want one with the classic look of real wood, or would a more modern, sleek design look better at your entry? When it comes to color, entry doors can be made in just about any color, wood grain style, or stain. Having a hard time choosing? Contact a Greyrock team member and we would be happy to help you decide which style and color combination might be best depending on your preferences and type of home.


Many people tend to forget about hardware when choosing their new front door, but this is another thing that you’ll want to consider. There are many different types of hardware ranging from the basic brass doorknob to a fully programmable keyless entry system and everything in between. You’ll want to choose based on your budget and your design/color preference.

And don’t forget about added features such as a kickplate, deadbolt, or handsome door knocker. These options can provide extra security and design appeal while also being functional.
