In need of a new entry door or entry door replacement? It’s tough to know which door to pick, since there are now so many entry door options on the market today. But even so, a steel door is a sound exterior door choice that’s hard to beat.
Leading door manufacturers like Pella and ProVia offer some very nice steel entry door products in a range of styles, functionalities, and customizations. Not only do you get to choose your preferred color and texture, but you also have options in terms of panel designs, glass features, sidelights, door hardware choices, and more. Here are just a few of the ways you can customize your steel entry door:
Who says a steel door has to be boring? You’ve got lots of options in terms of panel shapes, sizes, and the number of panels included. Several options for sidelights, too. There are several ways to customize both your interior and exterior trim to match your home’s architectural features and decorative themes. Coordinate with crown molding, baseboards, and other entryway details. Are you a pet owner? You can have your own pet door installed with either a medium, large, or extra-large opening that can accommodate even the biggest of breeds.

Glass windows, inserts, and sidelights are common features seen on wood & fiberglass doors. Wish you could add some glass to your steel entry door? You can! In fact, ProVia allows you to choose everything from clear glass with internal, external, or no grids, to internal blinds, to tinted glass, to several privacy glass options. Worried about glass inserts reducing the insulating value of your door? There are also some very energy-efficient double-pane and triple-pane glazing systems available.
As far as door hardware goes, you’ve got several options there as well. For example, Pella’s steel doors come with customizable hardware from their Essentials collection, but they’ve also partnered with Baldwin to offer signature Classic, Rustic, and Modern hardware collections. You get to choose your preferred type of threshold, sill, and hinges, too.

Did you know that steel doors account for roughly half the entry door market in the US? Steel doors are incredibly popular for commercial properties, but there are plenty of great steel solutions for residential doors, too. Why are steel exterior doors so well-liked? It’s because they offer a nice suite of features and benefits, all at a more attractive price point than some other exterior door material options.
What’s so great about steel? For starters, steel is one of the strongest construction materials available for both residential and commercial use. And a steel door isn’t just strong; it’s also durable, resilient, and secure. Not many products can boost both your level of safety and your curb appeal at the same time, but a modern steel entry door does just that. Let’s look closer at some features & benefits of having a steel entry door installed:
Strength & durability are two key advantages of steel doors. Steel won’t warp, crack, or rot, and a 20-gauge steel entry door is one of the strongest you’ll find anywhere.
If home or building security is of prime concern, then you won’t find a better solution than a steel entry door. No other door material is stronger or more secure.
Dents and dings aren’t hard to pull out of a steel door, and light scratches aren’t hard to address. As long as the scratch isn’t deeper than the galvanization, door refinishing isn’t necessary.
You might not think of a steel door as being energy-efficient, but modern steel doors are filled with some very effective insulation. In fact, many are even ENERGY STAR certified!
Sure, you can choose a steel door with a smooth finish, but there are also woodgrain textures along with other finished looks available. Some steel doors incorporate glass features, too.
Among popular entry door materials, steel doors are the most affordable. They offer good longevity and ROI over time, too. The final cost will depend upon the style and customizations you select.
In the past, you didn’t necessarily have a ton of options when it came to style, finish, and color selection for steel entry doors. But that was then. Now, you can choose a smooth finish, or you can opt to go with a more natural woodgrain look. Interested in a stain finish? You can choose from natural oak, light oak, dark oak, walnut, cherry, or even dark mahogany. Wondering what your options for opaque paint colors? There’s a full rainbow of possibilities, from Snow Mist to Café Cream to Sterling Gray to Mountain Berry to Rustic Bronze to Enzian Blue, and more! Pictured below are some of the more popular finishes and colors:
• Light Oak
• Vallis Red
• Rustic Bronze
• Enzian Blue
