Ready for a warm new look? Try a wood front door

Winters in Lafayette can bring a lot of weather changes: colder temperatures, wetter environments and gloomy skies. One of the best ways to warm up the look of your home throughout this sometimes dreary time of year is by adding a wooden replacement door. The detailed wood doors from McComb Window & Door are crafted to complement your home and bring warmth to your entryway. Each Pella Windows & Doors of Indianapolis collection offers a different style for your Lafayette home:

  • Traditional: The Traditional Collection features unique glass designs and detailed wood panels for an everlasting look.
  • Craftsman: The Craftsman Collection highlights simple, symmetrical detailing with a steadfast make.
  • Classic: The Classic Collection adds elegance and charm to a home with a historic feel, decorative designs, beveled glass and true divided-light grilles.
  • Old World European: The Old World European Collection takes guests back in time when they walk up to your home. Textured glass and decorative iron accents add grandeur and character to your entryway.

Now that understand the types of wooden doors available to you through McComb Window & Door, how do know if a wooden door is right for your space? There are lots of advantages to wood replacement doors besides their style and warmth. Here are additional factors you should discuss:

  • Because the doors are comprised of wood, they are easier to customize. Door panels, molding and any other special features can easily be crafted into wood to make your front door unique. You can also highlight your wood’s natural grain with stain.
  • Depending on the weather in your area, wood replacement doors and windows can be a long-lasting, durable product. Wood doors usually require an overhang, so you will want to consider that for your replacement project. That means that wood doors may help increase your home’s energy efficiency, and even diminish noise from the outdoors.
  • Because wood is a natural material that can be shaped in a variety of ways, wooden doors can be custom made to fit almost any size of doorway. It’s simple to insert glass windows or pieces into a custom door for increased light.
  • According to Consumer Reports, wood is one of the best door materials for resisting wear and tear. Wood doors are less likely to dent and scratch and are less of a hassle to repair. However, to keep the doors looking their best, they require routine painting or varnishing on a regular basis.

The entryway is the central point of any home.
