Increase Curb Appeal with a Refreshed Entry Door Look

Sep 08, 2023

The front or entry door to a home can say much about its owner. It makes a statement about the personality of the owner and gives guests a hint of what might be inside. “We have seen a change in what customers want their front door to look like,” said Wendy Cline, co-owner of J & B Construction. “Years ago, the popular look was a traditional one, and now we see homeowners designing bold front doors that speak to their tastes and character.”

Wendy points to some of the top entry door trends J & B Construction has seen.

Glass Front Doors

“There’s a larger use of glass in newer doors,” Wendy said. “The glass ranges from the height of the full door to more inserts of glass.”

The advantage of glass doors is the ability for natural light to move through them. The sunshine will not only help with lighting, but it will also assist with heat during the winter. The brightness of the entryway will also make guests feel welcome.

A Pop of Color

A front door in a bright or unique color makes the home distinctive. The entry door color can match the windows or siding, or can be as different as you’d like.

“Colors affect our mood, and people are designing their doors around brighter color choices,” Wendy said. “Yellow creates optimism; red is an energetic color; and navy gives an air of sophistication. Black is also a popular front door color, as it gives the door a classic yet contemporary look.”

Steel or Fiberglass Materials

Front or entry door security is always important, and doors made from steel or fiberglass add an extra layer of security and durability. Both materials add value, as they are energy efficient and virtually unaffected by outside conditions.

     “Some people are concerned that steel or fiberglass might take away from the traditional look of a front door,” she said. “These materials can be assembled to look familiar to a classic wooden door, or a wood finish can give the door an age-less feel.”



Open Concept

Popular in many homes is a larger entry way, using either double doors or a larger, single door. Like glass doors, this bigger entryway gives natural light a way into the home and is a beautiful addition to the structure.

“The entry way is the first feature your guests see,” Wendy said. “The larger doors create an inviting atmosphere when hosting others.”

 The only complaint I have is when I have J&B do my roof in another 30 years or so, is Dave their sales man (a great guy) would not guaranty I could get the same great crew I had this time. They did a fantastic job. Much better than the last roofing company did. A nice bunch of guys. Did a very nice job cleaning up. I'd give them 10 stars but 5 is the limit. If you need a roof done this is the company you want to do it. One more point I need to make. The guys that did the chimney flashing are artists. I went up on the roof when they were done and was very pleased with not only the roofing job but the sculptured sheet metal work. It's kind of a shame it's on the roof and not hanging on the family room wall :). You get the point. Hire em. You'll like em. 
 We live in a historic designated neighborhood and recently had our 30 year wood shingle roof replaced with another wood roof and new gutters. From Day 1 of the project to the final day, the entire team was responsive, professional, and very competent. When some minor changes were proposed by us they quickly and effortlessly complied. After going through this experience with J&B, I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a roof and gutter replacement, whether it be a simple or complicated project. 
 J & B did an amazing job from start to finish. The initial meeting at my home took place exactly at the time that was agreed upon and Scott was thorough in his explanations and transparent about costs. When the time came to begin the project, the team that showed up was friendly, professional and timely in getting the project done. The cleanup afterward was such that it looked like they hadn't been there at all. The roof looks great, there were no surprises and Scott came by to inspect the work and explain the warranty upon job completion. I would highly recommend them.
