What are the popular styles for exterior replacement doors?

Table of Contents

You can augment your home with many popular styles for exterior replacement doors. Whenever you make a change to your home, you’ll want to make sure you understand your options as much as possible, and doors are no exception. With that in mind, we’d like to provide you with a broad overview of the latest trends on door selection.

Door Basics

Especially for your front entryway, there are many things to consider when choosing a replacement door. Most entryways have a 36-inch doorway and are customizable in hundreds of ways.

Many large entryways (greater than 36 inches wide) utilize doors with either a single-light or double-light door. This means it has a light on one side or both, and they have windows attached to the doorway or door jam with 12-to-14-inch lights. The vertical windows are the same height as the door.

Sometimes the door windows run horizontally with a crosspiece separating the window from the top of the door. We call those transom doors, and they’re very elegant and popular nowadays. This is just a cursory glance at the many ways to configure doors with windows and lighting.

Side Doors, Back Doors, and More

There is a lot more to doors than just the front door. Homeowners need to depend on the dexterity of their Kansas City garage doors, back doors, side doors, and other possible entryways into the home. Here are some other door types Energy Pro Windows & Siding frequently install:

  • Sliding Doors
  • Patio Doors
  • Atrium Doors
  • French Doors
  • Garage Doors
  • Full/Half Glass Doors
  • Side-Entry Doors
  • Back-Entry Doors

For garages, we often use a slab door, which is a hinged, moving part of the door. These come in hundreds of varieties too.

As you can see, the variety of door types is rather extensive. That’s why it’s important to work closely with an expert to determine what kinds of exterior replacement doors are most suitable for all areas of your home.

Popular Exterior Replacement Doors in the Kansas City Area

Options abound when choosing a new replacement door for your home. Just the glass alone comes in many varieties, including:

  • Stained Glass
  • Lead Glass
  • Full/Half/Quarter Glass
  • Obscure Glass
  • Clear Gritted Glass

Then, the style of the door itself includes several consumer choices.

People in this part of the country really enjoy six-panel doors. They look very traditional with a distinctly colonial appearance. In the midwest, you won’t see as many arched doorways as you would find on traditional Tudor-style homes in other regions. Those are made with a wood slab and are not as popular around here.

The costs for materials and installation vary significantly for a replacement project. We can’t promise any standard costs. You’ll want to consult with one of our representatives in advance because the project length and expenses are contingent upon how much shrinking and re-shaping of the doorway we would need to do.
