How to Choose a Front Door?
With all the options and designs available the task of choosing the right front door might become overwhelming.
Let’s break it down into 4 steps:
- Decide if your current door configuration works for you or you’d like to change it.
Will you keep the sidelite/transom or make an oversized door? Will it be a double door or a single with 2 sidelites or maybe 1 oversize sidelite?
- Decide if it’s going to be a steel door or a fiberglass one.
Steel doors are more common and usually more affordable. The fiberglass doors are the ones that look like wood, they have all the wood grains and sharp details that are highlighted once it’s stained and lacquered.
- Decide if you are going to add the glass to the door or keep it solid.
Solid doors have about a dozen design options. They pair well with sidelites. Also, look good on their own in more contemporary styles in steel and always great in fiberglass.
The doors with glass open unlimited possibilities. You can choose the glass from the catalogues, create your own, play with sizes and numbers of glass inserts, position in the door, etc. This will take more time but surely will pay off with the right door just for you.
- Last, but not least decide on the color for the door and the handle.
The classic white will not cost you anything extra, but a door with a color will look so much better. The color does not have to match your windows, brick or garage door. The front door has a big enough character of its own and can be any color: red, yellow, green, blue, Ferrari orange...we’ve done so many and they all look great!
The right handle will add the last finishing touch to complete the picture. It’s true what designers say, that if you cannot replace the door now, replace the old handle, it can change the look of your door drastically, that’s how much value it carries.

|✅ Door type||Steel Entry Door|

|✅ The most expensive fiberglass door||$5000+|
There are thousands of different door designs that’s why the front entry door prices differ. The cost of house entry door replacement on average is about $2,500, but that is a rough indication because the price range here is big. The cost of steel entry doors starts as low as $499, which would act as your base that can be customized to become $5,000 or more. Every extra piece that you add to it reflects on its price. It is complicated to put a price tag for every component as those range in price as well, so we’ll give you the indications to understand why one door is more than another.
- Door Configuration: a single door is the cheapest and it goes up in price when you add another door, sidelite or transom
- Door Size: standard door size is 28”; 30”; 32”; 34” or 36” in width and 79.5” in height. Everything else is a custom size, which adds to the price
- Door Design: there are some common classic solid door designs and there are some more modern options, but the price difference is small.
- Door Glass Design: clear glass is usually the cheapest; one texture privacy glass is more (ex. sandblast, rain, chinchilla, etc. and they range in price); design glass is next in line (the different designs range in price), and on the top of the list is wrought iron (they also range in price) There are some exceptions though.
- Door Glass Size: the bigger the glass the more it is, considering you are choosing from the standard sizes because a smaller custom glass size will cost you more than a standard bigger one. Most common standard sizes: 22x36” (half the door); 22x48” (3/4 of the door); 22x64” (full size)
- Sidelite: there is a sidelite with a panel, which basically has an edge around the glass and there is a direct glass sidelite, where the glass is encased into a frame. The 2nd one is cheaper, But it all changes once you add the glass to it, then it all depends on the glass design and the size because for the direct glaze sidelite the glass must be custom made.
- Transom: the size of the transom dictates its price and also the shaped one is extra.
- Color: white color is free, color for the outside is extra plus more if you add the color inside. Stain for the fiberglass is more than paint and the fibreglass door must be painted or stained on both sides
- Lock and handle: the design and even the color finish makes a difference. The price range is big here from a simple deadbolt with a lever to a multipoint lock or one with a pull bar handle
- Miscellaneous customizations: there is a wide range of other design features that can customize your door and change its price: executive panels, stainless steel lines and inserts, grooves or nails/clavos, decorative shelves; mouldings, sill color, frame depth, etc

Our clients ask
Is a steel door good for the main door?
Yes, it is. Steel doors are super-reliable and strong, with a service life of 20+ years. Also, steel doors are not prone to warping like wooden doors - you just have to be careful not to scratch or dent them. For our clients in the Greater Toronto Area, it’s a number one choice for entry doors.
How much does a new steel front door cost?
Typically, a steel entrance door would cost you anywhere from $1,200 to $2,800 to install or replace, depending on the design and size.
How long does it take to install a steel entry door?
From the moment a door is delivered and unpacked, it should take no more than 3 hours to install it. If the door comes with sidelites or transom, an extra hour or two may be required to complete the installation.
Will steel doors rust?
They might, but only if the protective coat of paint is scratched or the door itself is dented. This is why you should paint over any scratch that appears on your steel door to ensure rust-free service life.
What is the advantage of metal exterior doors?
The main advantage of metal exterior doors is that they are more energy-efficient due to better insulation. All in all, steel doors offer a great market value for the customer - they are reliable, safe, and affordable, all at the same time.
What size do steel doors come in?
Standard steel doors come in the following sizes:
- Width 28”; 30”; 32”; 34”; 36”
- Height 79.5”; 84.5”; 95.5”
How long do steel doors last?
The standard service life for a properly installed steel door is 20 years or longer. The cost of maintenance and repairs (if needed) is relatively low.
Which is more secure - steel or fiberglass door?
When it comes to security, the most important factor is the lock - and not the door material. If you have additional security concerns, you can always get a steel door with a solid composite vinyl frame instead of the wooden one. Combined with a good lock, this will make your entrance door almost impenetrable.
Can you paint steel doors?
Yes, metal doors can be painted. However, before doing so, you should take the door out of its frame and remove (or cover with tape) any hardware. Then, you should sand the door, prime it, and, finally, paint it (ideally, spray-paint). Minimum DIY skills are required for the job.
Are steel doors energy efficient?
Steel doors are highly energy-efficient! This comes mainly from the fact that they are filled with high-density foam and feature weatherstrips and sweeps that easily stop the drafts.
Our doors can be combined with transoms and sidelites to create many options to fit your home and showcase your personal style.
