Home begins at the door

When it comes to the first impression your home gives, almost nothing is a bigger star than the front door.

Door2The door is the focal point if your home, the entrance through which you greet friends and loved ones, and the first thing people notice when they look at your house. In addition to being beautiful and functional, doors have to be safe and affordable. Nyhof Custom Gutter & Aluminum stocks and installs a wide range of doors that meet all those criteria.

As you might expect, the sky is the limit on door styles. Do you like rustic solid wood-look doors? Decorative glass? Contemporary steel or fiberglass? Something no one else has thought of yet? Whatever your taste or your home’s style, there’s a door that matches.

Most doors now are made of either fiberglass or steel, and can be made to look like wood. Real all-wood doors have become prohibitively expensive for most homeowners, and they don’t offer the same level of efficiency or safety.

One of the fiberglass door brands we carry is Therma-Tru, which offers a panoramic range of styles from contemporary to classic and has a very easy-to-use online ordering system that ensures we are ordering absolutely everything you are looking for down to the smallest trim or hardware parts.

If you’re thinking about a new door, Therma-Tru is the place to start. It’s not, however, the only place to look. True-Tech and Masonite are two more brands popular with both homeowners and contractors because of their selection and quality of fiberglass doors.

Both True-Tech and Masonite also offer steel doors that come pre-finished in white. That is a big advantage for homeowners who want a white door, because other companies ship steel doors in primer, which means either the homeowner or the contractor has to finish it. If you want a white steel door – which is a very popular choice among homeowners – True-Tech and Masonite make it easy.

If you’re looking for something a notch or two up the food chain, take a look at the selection from Waudena. If the door you’re looking for isn’t available anywhere else, you’ll probably find it there.

One of the most popular items in the Waudena catalog is a wood-look steel door, which looks exactly like a stained, woodgrain door. The range of options – steel, stainable steel, wood, smooth or textured fiberglass – ensures you’ll find what you’re looking for.

One of the biggest advantages of both fiberglass and steel doors, no matter what brand or model you choose, is color. Unlike old-fashioned wood doors, steel and fiberglass doors come in a rainbow of colors designed to match or contrast with your home and create the entry you want.

Lately, some of the hottest colors are grays and blues, and that goes for doors as well as shingles and siding on homes with white trim. Darker colors are gaining in popularity, so if a rich, dark color is what you need for your entry way, let us help you pick the color, style and material that is just right for you.

At Nyhof Custom Gutter & Aluminum, we are experts at helping you decide on the right product for your house and installing it promptly. Is it time for a new door? Give us a call. We can help make your home the beautiful, welcoming retreat you want it to be.
