Wood patio doors and entry doors are valued for their stunning natural beauty. Wood is also a 100% renewable resource so it’s kind to the environment. Wood doors offer the most design features, authentic quality, energy efficiency and enduring style.
Wood’s strength and durability has made it the door material of choice for centuries. However, historically, homeowners in rainy or tropical climates have avoided wood doors for fear they would be difficult to care for and unable to withstand the moisture. Today’s wood doors address these worries.
Wood patio doors
Pella starts with solid wood that’s kiln-dried to exacting specifications assuring a long life and reducing the risk of cracking, splitting or swelling. Next, we ensure moisture resistance with Pella's EnduraGuard® triple wood protection — a powerful, patented combination of three active ingredients. Together with our proven immersion-treatment method, it ensures stronger protection on every exterior wood surface of our doors. This innovation provides advanced protection against moisture, stains and decay caused by mold and mildew, as well as termite damage. Finally, the exteriors of our wood patio doors are protected with tough EnduraClad® aluminum cladding — so they don’t need painting and resist fading and chalking to stay looking great for years.
Wood entry doors
A wood entry door does require a bit more maintenance than fiberglass or steel, but with that extra care, it will look beautiful for years. Wood entry doors perform best in homes with a porch or other entry overhang.
Unmatched warmth and beauty
Wood creates a more inviting and attractive indoor environment, and in replacement projects, they can match the look of your home’s original doors and woodwork better than fiberglass, steel or vinyl. It’s the most historically accurate door material, so it will preserve the authentic beauty of period homes.
You can’t beat wood for design flexibility. From getting the exact look you want to changing their color if you redecorate — your possibilities are limitless. Wood door interiors can be painted or stained to match your décor. And patio doors made from Mahogany, Alder, Douglas Fir or Pine and Demesne Cherry, American White Oak, Mahogany or Rustic Walnut entry doors allow you to match your home’s woodwork, flooring and cabinets for a quality, seamless look.
Exceptional energy efficiency
Wood doors are an outstanding choice for lowering energy costs in all parts of the country. Wood is a natural insulator, so it helps keeps your home more comfortable no matter the weather. In fact, wood insulates 1,800 times better than aluminum.
