Door Styles and Materials for Every Taste and Preference

Most doors you come across will possess a different style as well as a different composition of materials. Are you looking for classic or modern? Wood or Steel? Essentially, there are an endless number of doors available to purchase based on your homes style.

Olson Windows, Doors, Siding and Roofing provides many different types of doors in Chicagoland, each of which provides something different in the ways of appearance and performance. Supplied by Andersen, Pella, Marvin, Loewen, Lindsay, and Therma-Tru, our doors offer great choices for our customers!

Front Doors

A front door is very important to the overall aesthetic of a home. It is your front door that welcomes visitors, providing the home with a focal point and an atmosphere which help dictate your homes style/feel.

Front doors are made out of a wide variety of materials, all of which have their own benefits. Though fiberglass and steel front doors are hugely popular these days, classic wood front doors still retain their popularity. Walnut, cherry, hickory, maple, and a variety of other woods are used to make quality front doors.

Regardless of the type of front door you’re interested in, the door specialists at Olson can supply and install it for you.

Sliding Doors

If you are looking to add another entryway to your home, you could consider installing a sliding door. Often found next to patios, porches or decks, sliding doors can be opened with ease.

These doors are made out of a number of materials, including wood, fiberglass, and steel. Each material Olson offers has different advantages, but regardless of the type you choose, it will possess top-notch functionality.

If you’re interested in installing sliding doors, the door specialists at Olson can help you. Not only do we sell a wide variety of these doors, we install them for our customers too.

Storm Doors

While a front door alone can provide you with plenty of years of use, it will last substantially longer if it’s protected by a storm door. Storm doors are installed on the exterior sides of front doors, protecting them against many natural elements. Typically made out of aluminum, they are built to thrive through many years of consistent use.

By installing a storm door on your home, you will reduce the negative effects of rain, snow, wind, and other types of inclement weather. A storm door will ensure that your front door maintains both its aesthetic and its operational qualities.

Olson offers a varied selection of storm doors. You can take a look at our selection by stopping by one of our showrooms in Barrington or Warrenville!

Patio Doors

Patio doors are available in both closed or ventilated styles. Whereas closed models offer a great deal of security, ventilated models allow for a great deal of airflow.

Available with both hinged and sliding closure mechanisms, patio doors are typically see-through. Since they are see-through this allows you to see the outdoors at all times.

Olson is well-versed in the installation of all types of patio doors, from hinged, to sliding, to mesh, to glass, and much more.
