Fiberglass Dutch doors are extremely popular here in Southern California; especially our beach cities. You can read more about our Dutch doors here. The good thing about fiberglass doors are that they are tough, energy efficient and come with extended warranties. Double Dutch doors are convenient, appealing and offer great value.

Paint Your Door With an Inviting Color

Black, White and browns are traditionally ‘safe’ colors. That said, we increasingly see people making bold color choices. We’ve had customers ordering their doors in reds, blues, greens and yellows; even the occasional hot pink and deep purple!

Increase Your Curb Appeal With Glass

Glass adds a touch of sophistication to your entryway. It also makes your home look bright, cheerful, and homey.

Glass goes well with Dutch Doors. You’ll see top lights with no grids to those with grids that include 2, 3 and 4 (divided) lites. You’ll also see half lites that span the entire top leaf with no grids or divided into 9 lites.

What are?

Grids are long, thin, flat pieces of fiberglass or other material that cross each other to form a series of squares or rectangles.

These are glass panes (double or triple insulated) inserted in a door. They describe the amount of glass covering in a door.

Top lights are glass inserts placed in the top 1/3 part of the door

Glass panes that span 1/2 height of the door.

With all the options, the most popular style is the classic 4 lite (toplite).

The reason?

It offers Privacy and Security.

Fiberglass Double Dutch Doors With Sidelights

If you want your entrance to look impressive, add a sidelight or two. You’ll need an extremely wide existing entryway to accommodate the entire system.

Installing a double Dutch door system with sidelights is probably the most difficult even for professionals to handle – not at all recommended as an amateur DIY project.

This is a picture of a nice bright, wide and airy entrance. The door system has a split finish color scheme.

This company did an amazing job on our door! Their service was fantastic too, from the first meeting to pick out our door (which they come to your house with door samples). We had lots of questions about the door options, colors and they were super nice. They were honest about the timing to produce the door and delivered on that timing which is a huge thing. And, their installation team was great, very meticulous and proud of their work. I highly recommend them, especially if you are getting a Dutch door like we did
