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

Winters in Mankato might mean a lot of weather changes: colder temperatures, wetter environments and overcast 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 Pella Windows and Doors are made to complement your home and insert warmth to your entryway. Each Pella Mankato collection delivers a different style for your Mankato home:

  • Traditional: The Traditional Collection features unique glass designs and detailed wood panels for an everlasting look.
  • Craftsman: The Craftsman Collection brings simple, symmetrical detailing with a steadfast make.
  • Classic: The Classic Collection adds elegance and charm to your space 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 arrive at your home. Textured glass and decorative iron accents add grandeur and character to your entryway.

Now that you have a better understanding of the types of wooden doors available to you at Pella Windows and Doors, how do know if a wooden door is right for your home? There are several advantages to wood replacement doors besides their style and warmth. Here are additional factors you should discuss:

  • Because the doors are constructed from 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 your own. You can also highlight your wood’s natural grain with stain.
  • Depending on your climate, wood replacement doors and windows can be a long-lasting, durable product. Wood doors typically require an overhang, so you will want to consider that for your replacement project. That means that wood doors could help increase your home’s energy efficiency, and even reduce noise from the outdoors.
  • Because wood is a natural material that can be shaped in different ways, wooden doors can be custom made to fit almost any size of doorway. And it isn’t difficult 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 easily repairable. However, to keep the doors looking their best, they require ongoing painting or varnishing on a frequent basis.

The entryway is the central point of any home.
