Selecting the Right Type of Glass Door for Your Home

When deciding what type of glass door to buy, it’s important to take some time and do a thorough walk through of your home. Look at your color scheme and overall design layout. Maybe a wood and glass door would be a great entry point for your rustic home. Maybe your patio will look incredible with sliding glass doors. Or maybe you’re looking for that vintage appearance with an old storm door. It’s all up to you! 

Let’s take a look at a few types of glass doors for your home:

Glass Entrance Doors

Your home’s front door is the focal point of your entire property. You could have the nicest looking home in your neighborhood, but if your entrance door is worn down, distorted, or downright ugly, it’s going to significantly decrease your home’s appearance and value. Conversely, a quality glass door can truly make your home stand out. Milliken Millwork exterior wood and glass doors look amazing on just about any home!

Patio Sliding Glass Doors

Ditch the old, rickety back door and upgrade to quality, attractive sliding glass doors. Here are some great options available:

  • EcoShield Doors - These vinyl replacement glass patio doors look fantastic and come equipped with a glazing package that meets or exceeds the latest Energy Star rating.
  • Weather Shield Doors - These sliding doors come in a variety of styling and finishing combinations to meet any household design style. Weather Shield doors include hinged, bi-fold, and telescoping options, as well. 
  • Atrium Doors - These aluminum glass patio doors are durable, visually appealing, and energy-efficient. You can select Low-E glass for additional energy savings, too.

Glass Storm Doors

Milliken Millwork products are also great options for storm doors. You can spruce up any side or back door and add all kinds of energy-saving value to your home. These doors come in plexiglass or tempered glass options and have a removable screen (framed in bronze or white) to equip during the warmer months.

Additionally, if you want to really get creative, talk to an experienced glass company about certain custom glass options. You could have some security and fire-rated doors installed, as well.
