Need a New Front Door?

February 26, 2014 By

Your front door is a basic security necessity for your home, but it also definitely serves as a focal point as well. If you want your home to make a good impression on your guests, your front door is a great place to start.
Whether you’re looking to add a pop of color with a vibrant red door or you want your entry door to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your home, you have a lot of options to choose from.

Front Entry Doors in Maryland

At Potomac View Energy, we want you to be able to express your unique style with your front door—as well as increase your home’s energy-efficiency. That’s why we offer a variety of custom-made doors in the Baltimore, MD area. Keep reading to learn about your different front door options.

Popular Front Door Options


When choosing your new front door, one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make is the material type. The most common types of front door materials available today include wood, fiberglass, and steel.

At Potomac View Energy, we offer both fiberglass and steel entry door options to homeowners in the Baltimore area. In our professional opinion, these doors offer the most security while also contributing to your home’s aesthetics and improving its energy efficiency.

In addition, you’ll never have to worry about your steel or fiberglass door rotting, splintering, or warping—problems typical with wood front doors.

If you like the look of a wood front door but want the energy efficiency and low maintenance of a steel door or fiberglass door, you’ll be pleased to know that many doors offer a faux-woodgrain finish. It’s like having your cake and eating, too (although we don’t recommend taste-testing your front door).



Once you know what material type you want for your new front door, you’ll be able to pick out the color. While some homeowners prefer to stay within their home’s current color palette, others like to go bold with their front door color.

Because all of our doors at Potomac View Energy are custom made, we can pretty much provide you with whatever color you want!
