Door Installation and Repair Services
Why Install New Exterior Doors?
Your exterior doors are the gateway to your home. Security is the number one feature that doors provide you and your family so it’s important to have safe, properly functioning doors. Another important feature of exterior door installation that often goes unrecognized is the impact on your energy bill. Doors become less energy efficient over time because of poor insulation and natural wear and tear. Properly insulated and fully functional doors keep the drafts out and the interior temperature steady.
If your front door, sliding glass door, or even interior doors need to be repaired or replaced for any reason, the door experts at Emmons can help. We’re passionate about making sure that your home is safe and secure. You can rest assured that our door installation or repair services will be done right and last.

Learn More About Types of Exterior Doors
When it’s time for you to replace the entry doors to your home, you might be surprised by the variety of options. The professionals at Emmons can handle any new door installation and even help you decide which types of exterior doors will best suit your home and needs. Below is a little bit of information to help you get started.
Exterior French Doors
For a more elegant appearance and the most privacy and security, French patio doors are a flexible option that can open inward, outward, left and right. You can get them in aluminum, vinyl or wood, and you can choose whether only one or both sides open and close.
Wooden Front Doors
Since its appearance surpasses that of other exterior door types, a wood entry door installation is a common desire among many homeowners. While this sturdy material offers good security too, it’s the most expensive and requires more maintenance than fiberglass and steel to prevent expanding, rotting and warping.
A storm door installation adds an extra layer of energy efficiency and protection to your home. Storm doors are available with aluminum, vinyl and steel frames with a full-view screen, glass pane or both to be interchangeable. Screen doors are the perfect addition to your home if you’re looking to increase airflow along with light.
Sliding Glass Doors
This type of patio door is the most common because it allows for maximum ventilation and light, and it’s available in aluminum, vinyl and wood. Since sliding glass patio doors are mostly glass, it’s recommended that you get reinforced glass or a security bar to improve their safety.
Exterior Steel Doors
When you need new doors that offer the best in energy efficiency, strength and security, you can’t go wrong with steel. With foam core insulation wrapped in thick gauge steel, these entry doors ensure that your home remains comfortable and safe no matter the time of year.
Exterior Fiberglass Doors
As an increasingly popular option, a fiberglass entry door installation is also energy efficient, durable and low maintenance because this material resists weather-related expansion, rot and warping. With a range of finishes available, including wood grain, this material resists dents and scratches from high-volume traffic as well.
Interior Door Installation
When it comes to the appearance of interior doors, flush and panel are the two main types. A flush door has a flat surface and no raised areas or details. A panel door usually has different panels built into the frame, and some of them are recessed while others are raised. When it comes to interior door styles, though, there are many varieties to choose from, such as barn, bi-folding, pocket, sliding, standard hinged and more.
Interior doors are available in several materials. With the most moderate price, medium density fiberboard is the most popular material. Although it’s more expensive, solid wood is the most durable option. Additional interior door materials include hollow core, solid core and glass. No matter which materials, styles or types of doors that you choose for the interior of your home, Emmons technicians can complete the installations. We also offer quick and affordable repairs if your existing interior doors are damaged.

Door Replacement Cost Factors
When you begin a project to replace the doors in and around your home, it’s important to consider the cost factors, especially if you’re on a budget. In general, standard interior doors are less expensive than standard exterior and front doors. However, each has a wide price range because of the various materials and styles that are available. For example, you won’t spend as much on a steel sliding or French door as you would on a custom fiberglass or wood door.
Additionally, the sizes and whether they’re slab or pre-hung doors are factors that affect the cost. Adding transoms or sidelights and needing extra construction or framing work will increase the overall price too. No matter what service you need or what type of door you choose, Emmons will complete your project with transparency and professionalism.
