Premium Fiberglass Entry Doors With Sidelights
A Favorite In The Orange County Area

In today’s article, we’d like to just breeze through some of the basics of premium ultra-gorgeous Fiberglass Entry Doors with Sidelites.

These are among the most common options homeowners in the Orange County, CA area explore when replacing their entry door. They’re stunning. They make a very distinct statement. And as we like to tell folks, they effectively create a grand entrance.

Let’s look at some contemporary examples that we’ve installed from our Entry Door Galleries.

We’ll start with one that provides distinct contrast.

What we have here is a quality Therma-Tru fiberglass entry door system with one stationary sidelight (on the right) and another operable sidelight – known as an ‘uneven pair.’ These are extremely popular because they add a lot of extra space to the entrance, making moving large objects like furniture in and out of the home easier. It has Extra White 5-lite windows with Rain privacy glass and smooth skin factory-painted Salty Dog.

We installed this in the Diamond Bar, CA area.

Another somewhat similar example can be seen in the image we chose for the primary image to today’s article.

Let’s take another look.

This is another Therma-Tru model with an operable sidelite, but with Chord privacy glass and a Mahogany grain that’s been factory stained Mulberry.

 

We installed this for a wonderful family in the Anaheim, CA area (explore our Service Areas).

Is Demolition Involved In These Installations?

Generally speaking, no. In most cases, if you’ve got an existing door with a side window separated by stucco and drywall, we’ll leave that alone. We’re not going to be busting these kinds of framing out to install new systems.

Most of our installations already have the setup where everything is in the same frame, all framed in and built as a single unit. The other more common arrangement is replacing double doors with a single door and either one or two sidelights.

Our installations take 4 to 6 hours as a general rule. On the lower end are single doors, with double doors in the middle and sidelight systems on the higher end.

What Are The Primary Benefits Of Entry Doors With Sidelights?

Along with adding more space to the entryway with operable sidelights, they let more light in (eliminating or reducing dependency on electrical lighting in the entryway). They illuminate! And, if you choose a more transparent glass, it lets more nature in as well. However, many homeowners choose different types of privacy glass.

They also add to your property value’s bottom line.

Let’s not forget the added security benefit. With certain types of glass, when the doorbell rings or someone knocks, you can simply glance outside and see who it is without the need for a peephole.

Finally, many cats and dogs love to lounge in the natural light by the door on hot days.
