Exterior Doors

You Only Get One Chance to Make a First Impression

The main entryway to your home should make a great first impression, which means it's important to choose a door design you'll love for years to come. Exterior doors are constructed from fibreglass, steel or wood, and can be customized with exterior paint, stain and door hardware to boost curb appeal. They also play a key role in keeping your home energy-efficient.

Here are the steps to choosing a new exterior door:

Step 1: What Type Of Door Configuration Are you Looking For?

Start by selecting the door configuration. Do you prefer a single door or double doors? Would you like one with sidelights (glass panels on the sides of a door) or a transom (single panel above a door)?

Single Door




Single Door with 1 Sidelight
Single Door with 2 Sidelights
Double Door
Double Door with 2 Sidelights
Single Door with 2 Sidelights and Transom
Single Door with 2 Sidelights and Elliptical Transom
Single Door with 2 Sidelights and Half-Circle Transom

Step 2: Choose Your Door Style

Next, decide on a door style from our line of traditional, contemporary or modern designs. At this point, decide whether you want your door to include glass or not.

Some examples of different styles are below:

Step 3: Choose Your Glass Design

Once you've established your door material, and depending on the style you've chosen, it's time to choose the glass. Glass designs range from simple and delicate to intricate and ornate, and are generally the most impactful design feature of a door. You can go with a single pane (or "lite"), or choose a style with a grille that divides smaller panes of glass.

Here are a few examples:

Step 4: Choose Your Door Material

The three main door materials are fibreglass, steel and wood. Compare the characteristics of each to see which one meets your needs:

  • Durable, secure and long lasting
  • Requires minimal level of care
  • Resists denting, scratching, rusting or rotting
  • Energy efficient
  • Looks like real wood and insulates five times better
  • Available in a woodgrain and smooth finish look
  • Can be painted or stained
  • Durable, secure and long lasting
  • Requires periodic level of care
  • Energy efficient
  • Insulates better than wood
  • Available in a smooth finish look
  • Can be painted
  • Provides warmth and beauty
  • Requires a higher level of care
  • Scratches are easily repaired
  • Can be painted or stained
  • Must be finished or painted on all sides

Wood doors are available through Special Order only. Please see a store associate for details.

Step 5: Make a statement With colour

Colour is a great way to personalize your door. With a variety of stain and paint options to choose from, you can opt for traditional black or white, match your door to your home's exterior, or go bold with a complementary pop of colour.


For stain finishes, choose only one stain colour for both sides of the door. Stain finish can be applied to textured fibreglass doors and wood doors only. All doors come pre-stained.


For paint finishes, choose one colour for the face of the door and another colour for the back of the door. This allows you to complement the style of the interior of your home. Paint finish can be applied to steel, fibreglass and wood doors.

Step 6: EnhanceYour Curb Appeal With Finishing Touches

Once your door is installed and painted or stained, you can personalize it with trim, hardware and other front-entrance accessories to increase your home's curb appeal.

Door Hardware And Hinges

Doorknobs and handlesets come in a variety of styles from simple to luxurious. There are also multiple finishes to choose from, including satin nickel, brass and oil-rubbed bronze.

House Numbers And Plaques

Most homeowners inherit the numbers that come on their house. Replacing your house numbers is a quick project that boosts curb appeal. Browse a range of fonts, finishes and materials to find the one that's right for you.


A mailbox is one of the first things someone notices when they arrive at your front door. Choose one that complements the exterior features of your home and enhances the overall look of your entrance area.

Exterior Lighting

Add beauty and safety to your entranceway with weather-resistant outdoor lighting. For added security, choose a fixture with motion sensors.

Step 7: Lower Home Energy Costs

Most exterior doors carried at The Home Depot qualify for the Energy Star® rating*, with features like double or triple-pane glass with a low-emission coating and argon gas-filled glazing to significantly reduce heat loss and drafts. They also boast durable PVC door sweeps and foam-filled polyurethane cores for stable insulation.

*Rating may vary by region. Consult the Energy Star® website for more details.

TIP: For a coordinated look, choose the same finish (e.g. brushed nickel) for your doorknob, hinges, handleset, mailbox and house numbers.

Step 8: Take Measurements

Special Order Exterior doors are manufactured to the size you order, ensuring a perfect fit for your renovation. Have your installer double check their measurements before ordering your door to eliminate any surprises during the installation process.
