A beautiful entry door gives any visitor their first impression of your home, adds to a house’s curb appeal, and increases property value. Thus it’s important to select a door that enhances your home’s overall architecture while signaling your distinctive style. You should also think about how an entry door will look from the inside. Since these doors provide secure privacy and noise-abatement as well, they should be strong, well-framed, and solidly constructed. They can often support hooks or other attachments for a sign and door or window accessories.
French (Hinged) Doors
French doors have transparent or glazed glass panels extending the door’s entire length.
