Door Styles

Choose from many styles of doors: 

Entry/Access Doors – the primary doors used for entering a building or a specific area within a building. These doors are typically located at the front or main entrance and serve as the main access point for residents and visitors. They are designed for security, durability, and aesthetics.

Patio doors – designed to provide access between indoor and outdoor spaces, such as a patio or deck. They are often characterized by large glass panels to allow for an unobstructed view of the outdoor area. Common types of patio doors include sliding glass doors, French doors, and folding doors.

Slider doors, or sliding doors – doors that move horizontally along tracks. They are often used as patio doors and are popular for their space-saving design. Slider doors typically have large glass panels, allowing for ample natural light and outdoor views.

French doors – double doors with multiple glass panels, usually divided by muntins or grids. They are hinged on the sides and swing open from the center. French doors are known for their elegant and classic appearance, and they are commonly used for interior doors or as access doors to patios.

Interior doors – doors that separate different rooms or areas within a building. They are not typically exposed to the exterior elements. Interior doors come in various styles, such as panel doors, flush doors, and bi-fold doors, and they serve both functional and aesthetic purposes.

Storm doors – additional exterior doors installed outside the primary entry door. They provide an extra layer of protection against harsh weather conditions, such as rain, wind, and snow. Storm doors often have glass panels and screens, allowing for ventilation during mild weather while still providing protection.
