So you’re having a party and you will greet your guests at your front door. How can you make your guests’ first-impression memorable? How can you make sure your entryway is welcoming and represents your decorating style? Here are a few tips for ensuring your front door is ready for your next gathering.
The Basics: Make Sure Your Door Works Properly
If you have problems opening or closing your door, don’t let your guests’ first impression be an embarrassing wrestling match with your door. Opening and closing problems like sticking doors or gaps between door and frame could indicate settling of your house or improper installation and could possibly be solved with the services of a talented carpenter. If that doesn’t solve your problems, it might be time to call in our door experts.
Make The First Impression Memorable
Entry doors are unique in that they are one of your home’s dominant architectural features that can be easily and affordably changed. Today’s entry doors are more like fine furniture with beautiful hardware and a factory-applied finish that presents a fantastic first impression. Add some bling to your door with a festive, themed door decoration and you’ll get rave reviews from your entryway!

Design Your Door To Match Your Your Decorating Style
A door design expert can help walk you through the options for replacing your door. You might have a door with sidelites, but have always wanted a double door. Or, your door opens in to the wrong side for your current room/furniture arrangement. You don’t have to settle for replacing your door with exactly the same type of door…you have so many options.
Choose from designer colors, stylish hardware, decorative or clear glass, and most importantly, the right material for your situation. Depending on the weather exposure, design style and budget of your front entry, you might choose from solid wood, fiberglass, aluminum clad or steel. Our door design experts can help you with these choices and make the process easy and enjoyable.

It’s important to plan early to make sure your entry door is ready for your next event.

Virtually all of our doors are custom pre-finished at the manufacturing facility and our professional installers can have your door installed in a few hours.
