Whether it's aluminum-clad, fiberglass, or wood, or for an entry, a patio, or an interior, the look for doors is clearly glass. But the glass can be decorative, creating a dramatic entry; functional, insulating and soundproofing the home's exits; or practical, allowing increased light and producing a warm welcome.
Peachtree. A sure complement to any two-story foyer, Monumental Entryways are made by pairing double entry doors with matching sidelights and topping them off with a transom or a direct-set window.
