Open Your Eyes to the Many Possibilities of Doors
It is one of the first things that visitors to your home see and is, therefore, an important focal point. In addition, doors provide security and protection from the elements. These factors make choosing the right door for your home an important decision. It pays to research the types of doors available, the different purposes they serve, and how they can be applied to your home and needs. Sunshine Contracting is here to help you make the right decision!

When it comes to exterior doors, there are several types to choose from, each with a distinct purpose. These include:
- Entry doors, which can include your front door or rear door to your home.
- Patio doors, which can lead out to your backyard deck or an enclosed porch.
- French doors, which can create a unique entrance to an outdoor porch or balcony, or simply to another room in your home.
- Storm doors, which provide protection from the elements as well as beauty.
- Sliding doors, which provide convenience, style and beauty.
In addition to these doors, homeowners can also order custom doors to fit a special space. This is a particular factor when seeking a replacement door for a unique, older house that many not have the standard features of most modern homes.
Financing available through Wells Fargo Financial National Bank.
Doors can be made out of various types of materials to suit your home’s design or the local environmental conditions. A classic wooden door can give your home a rustic look while tall, painted fiberglass embossed doors can lend your home an elegant appearance. Glass doors can let you enjoy the view of your backyard from the comfort of your home and can illuminate an entire room while dual doors can open up an entire room and extend the available space.
The material used to construct your door will dictate how it’s to be maintained. Wood doors will require protection against the elements (such as staining) to keep them in good condition for many years. Meanwhile, fiberglass doors often require only a quick wash with the garden hose to keep them looking their best.
Unless you’re experienced with construction and installation, it’s probably best to leave installing a door to the professionals. Sunshine Contracting is a certified installer and has professional certifications to install Alside, Pro-Via and Therma-Tru doors.
Let your doors be a statement to the world about where and how you live. The right door can be your entrance to elegance, convenience and warmth. For more information on door installation services, do not hesitate to contact Sunshine Contracting!
