Finding an Odd Sized (3'-6" x 6'-8") Fiberglass Door Is Hard…

For some reason (call it creative license or attempted innovation), you may have ended up with a 42-inch Entry Door.

Odd-sized entry doors are unique and add character to any home

The downside?

42″x80″ (3′-6″ x 6′-8″) are difficult to find, even maybe so finding someone to replace it!

We can help!

Craftsman Style Front Doors: 42 inch entry door
Craftsman 42" inch entry door

We wanted fiberglass because our front door gets a lot of sun and some rain. Plus I liked my over-sized door. As soon as I mentioned the size of my door, companies would say, “sorry we don’t make 42 inch doors.”

Well that all changed when we called Today’s Entry Doors. I spoke with Donna who told me for the first time, “it’s not a problem; we can get you a 42" door.” She was so knowledgeable and took her time explaining that they have replaced 42 exterior doors in the past. I couldn’t believe it, I was so happy I scheduled an appointment.

Wide Door in fiberglass for Wheelchair Access

Lori had Double 30” doors. She wanted a large front door to make it easier for wheelchair access.

We installed a 42” wide exterior door in fiberglass with one sidelight

Thousands of California residents use a wheelchair to get around. For these folks, entry doors 42 inches wide (and wider) can help improve the quality of life by making it easier to enter and exit their home. The bonus is that a new and elegant 42″ entry door can also dramatically boost a home’s beauty and curb appeal–especially when combined with an attractive lockset, stunning sidelight or decorative glass

42″ Doors With Sidelights

Samantha hated her old double doors. Not only were they falling apart, her interior looked dark and dingy with the doors closed. She wanted a bright contemporary look, more natural light and save on energy.

We installed a 42”x80” front entry door with a 14″ sidelight, painted “Knockout Orange”.

42″x 96″ (8-foot tall) – Wider and Taller Entry Doors

Cameron came to us saying “I want a Dutch door with a wrought iron design”. He could not find anyone for the job. He had an odd-sized door; wider and taller than average.

We took up the challenge. We ordered and installed a 3’ 6”x8’ (42 inch wide and 8 foot tall) Rustic style Dutch door with decorative wrought iron grille in Mediterranean style.

Your Destination for Over-Sized Exterior Doors

Many California homeowners love their extra-large/ over sized front door systems.

The upside of a 42 inch wide (and wider) exterior door, makes your entrance look grander. It also facilitating easier furniture moving and wheelchair access.

The downside?

Larger and wider than standard sized doors are extremely hard to find. Even if you find a 42″ door, your style and configuration options are limited.

As entry door experts with over 30 years experience, we know the ins and outs of large exterior doors.

If you want to replace your non-standard exterior door/ extra-large front door, we’re the company to call.

The Odd-Sized Door Dilemma

At first this may seem like no big deal. But inadvertently, builders’ have put homeowners with 42″ x 80″ entry door and other non-standard entry doors into a predicament that we at Today’s Entry Doors call the ‘odd-sized door dilemma:’ that is, everything about a 42-inch entry door is fantastic!–until you want to replace it.

Larry Cahoon, Owner

Big Box Depot vs. Custom Crafted Fiberglass Entry Doors

Like you, many owners with so-called ‘odd sized’ 42-inch entry doors are ready to upgrade to something more elegant, modern or contemporary. You could go the depot-store route, but you may encounter frustrating obstacles. Here’s a quick comparison.

Big Box Depot​

  • Plain or limited styling
  • Inexperienced or uninformed salespeople
  • Door makers don’t accept any depot-store modifications
  • ‘what you see is what you get’ with the store’s door size and frame options
  • Use cheap components and hardware
  • Outsource installation. No warranty on installation

Custom Build Doors From Today’s Entry Doors

  • Professional, distributor-recognized door system designer and installer
  • Exciting and wide variety of door sizes, configurations, styles, glass and color options to choose from
  • Custom build the door system to perfectly fit your doorway
  • Reconfigure the door system to fit your entryway perfectly
  • Professional in-house installers with warranty

The result is a beautiful new premium-quality door system that’s as stylish and unique as its owner–you!

It's perfect. Today's Entry Door was a pleasure to work with. 

We wanted our custom doors to be perfect and the install on them to be flawless. 

After setting up a phone appointment, Garret showed up to our property with the Mobile Showroom and helped us customize doors to our liking. He was professional and very nice. Pricing was competitive,

Their customer service skills and product installation are their strengths. The team consistently did a great job at communicating costs and lead-times required. Justin did an amazing job with the install. He's precise and detailed oriented.

It costed us a few more bucks than the competitor, but we're so happy we went with them. Our past experience with other home-improvements told us to work with professionals that are specialists in their field versus general contractors. Thank you Today's Entry Door.
