Front Entry Doors in Cincinnati
Few things impact the initial impression of your home more than the door through which you’ll welcome guests and loved ones into it.
Even more importantly, the right front door will pay for itself in increased energy efficiency and improved property value.
But when you buy a new entry door, there are a number of considerations for homeowners who want a durable and secure front door.
First and foremost, materials matter. Not all doors are appropriate for our climate, where cold winters and hot summers can cause wooden doors to warp and crack in only a few years.
Doors that feature windows must use quality seals and adhesives that will hold up to the same stresses.
Hardware and framing has to be high quality in order to retain its beauty and keep your home’s primary entry point secure.
At Cincinnati Door & Window, we install quality entry doors in a range of materials and styles from:
Steel Entry Doors
Our ProVia 20 gauge steel entry doors are nearly twice as thick as competitor’s doors, and offer an outstanding level of energy efficiency.
Their seven year finish warranty means you just don’t have to worry about your door’s finish peeling or flaking, and the galvanized steel manufacture means it won’t easily dent or be forced open. Heavy duty polyurethane insulation on the interior provides excellent energy efficiency.
Best of all, a steel door doesn’t deform in hot or cold weather, so you can count on a tight seal year round that won’t leave you paying to climate-control your front porch.
Fiberglass Entry Doors
Fiberglass gives a homeowner more flexibility, but it’s important that you shop carefully. Cheap fiberglass can easily warp and crack under strain, and the life of your door will be substantially shortened.
At Cincinnati Door & Window, we rely on ProVia fiberglass doors, which offer the thickest fiberglass shell in the industry, with realistic simulated grain and factory staining that carries up to a 10-year finish warranty.
ProVia’s fiberglass doors are well insulated, too, providing an r-value of 15 that keeps your heating and cooling bills low.
Wood Entry Doors
In our climate, wood doors tend to shrink and swell seasonally, and don’t hold up as well as most homeowners would like. They also lack the insulating capabilities of other styles, and usually carry an r-value of just two.
Over time, they stop sealing properly at the floor, top, and sides, letting air from the outside infiltrate your controlled interior climate.
Entry Door Styles and Hardware
Our lines of entry doors come in a range of designs, colors, and stains, with beauty-enhancing options like decorative windows, privacy glass, or blinds between the glass panes.
In addition, you can choose extras like decorative locksets, kick plates, and knockers in several finishes, giving your home a unique, customized look and feel that will make you the envy of the neighborhood.
