  • What to Consider When Buying a New Front Entry Door

    The process of selecting your new front entry door should not be taken lightly. You want a front door that makes a great first impression, something that is as stylish and inviting as you are. You also want a front door that can withstand the elements and potential damage. Here are some factors to consider.

    Front Entry Door Materials

    Think about what impression you want your front door to make. Now, what type of material best suits your design aesthetic? Front doors can be made of many materials, including fibreglass, wood, engineered composite and steel. Below are the benefits of the most popular materials.

    • Wood Doors - Wood doors are still one of the most common choices for homeowners. Real wood doors offer a more traditional look that is timeless and beautiful, however, wood requires regular maintenance to protect it from sun, wind and water damage. While their are many high quality veneer options, solid wood doors will be among the most expensive. Walnut, pine, mahogany, alder and fir are some popular options. They each differ in colour, grain and sap content.
    • Fibreglass Doors - Can look and feel just like wood but at a much more affordable price point. Fibreglass doors are also built to withstand extreme weather conditions making them perfect for Calgary’s cold winters and dry summers. Fibreglass doors do not need to be repainted and are very low maintenance. In addition, they can help cut down on energy costs because of insulating foam cores. Fibreglass is often the door of choice for high-traffic entrances.
    • Steel Doors - Offers durability, and is suitable for most climates. It requires minor upkeep and is often treated to improve rust-resistance. Steel is also resistant to shrinking, and comes with core insulation for energy-efficiency. Overall steel doors are the strongest which makes them the preferred choice for industrial and commercial applications.
    • Aluminum Doors - Similar to steel, aluminum doors have an insulated core. Aluminum won’t rust and is low maintenance, but this strength and durability means more expensive doors. 
    • Hybrid or Metal Clad Doors - A tough aluminum or metal covering over a wood or composite core provides great durability, low maintenance and reduces costs compared to solid wood entry doors. 


    Door Configurations and Styles

    There are basic front doors, and then, there are extraordinary entrances which are unforgettable.  Doors can be solid wood, all glass and everything in between. You have a limitless selection of accents you can add such as custom latches and deadbolts to creating an arched top or installing double doors. Not to mention, doors come in a wide range of finishes, textures and colours.  Here is a sample of some of the common single door configurations available. 

    Door Installation

    Now that you have taken the time to choose the best quality and design in your budget, make sure your door gets installed correctly. Proper door installation is a craft that can only be honed through extensive experience. Poor installation can lead to many problems such as stiffness from doors that are not perfectly square or shift from lack of support. Gaps around the door frame can allow cold drafts and even water leakage that could potentially damage your home. You don’t want to have to prematurely replace your new doors because of inexperienced installers.

  • I waited to write this review to see how the windows & workmanship would be after 1 year of use. The windows are triple low E glazing and frames are fibreglass. Well on a rating of 10, I give 10 for the installation, followup and the product. I would recommend these people to anyone who wants good service who back their products.

    Carl C.

  • After a competitive evaluation of three potential suppliers we chose Old West Windows and Doors to replace 11 windows in our home. We were very impressed with Rick's knowledge and experience as well as the excellent reviews of his company. Kyle and his crew of installers did a first class professional and timely job taking care to minimize any disruptions.

    Andrew Dudzinski

  • Great service, great price, professional and knowledgeable installers. Installers worked on an extremely cold January day and took the time to explain how windows work and asked if we had any questions before they left for the day. Will recommend to others and use them again without hesitation for our future window needs.

  • Service and Quality are what Old West Windows and Doors provided for the installation of 10 windows on our main floor. Now the cold weather has arrived I cannot believe what a difference these new windows make. I found this companies name on Home Stars and they truly deserve the high star rating they presently have.

    Rating: 10/10


  • I couldn't be happier with Old West from start to finish. I had three estimates and Old West was very competitive. What impressed me the most and made me choose Old West was the professionalism and customer service from the first time I called to request an estimate. I'm so glad I chose Old West because of their professionalism and quality of work.

    Rating: 10/10


  • We replaced 5 old windows in our century home with white vinyl casements. Rick was very patient with us as we shopped around and tried to make a decision and always responded to emails quickly. He was also able to speed up the installation with an earlier than planned date and Jeremy and his great team of quiet and tidy installers completed the job in a single day.

  • We were very pleased with Old West Windows & Door Ltd. right from the start to finish. We can honestly say that our experience with Old West was the most amazing and satisfying contract work we have ever had done.
