The Home Depot has the perfect exterior door to compliment the style of your home. From front doors, screen doors, storm doors and dog doors, to patio doors, security doors, French doors and entry doors, you’ll find what you need right here.

Front Door Options
Keep your home stylish and beautiful with a new front entry door. Plus, you and your family will feel safe and secure with a quality entry door. Material makes a difference when deciding on an entryway door. Choose from fiberglass, wood, iron and steel. Fiberglass doors can be painted any color or finish in faux-wood and are great for high traffic areas. Built to last, iron doors can be fancy or classic in design.

Patio Doors: French Doors & Sliding Doors
Step outside in style with our wide selection of patio doors, including elegant French doors and sliding glass doors. Patio doors are typically two side-by-side doors that open out onto your patio or deck. Patio doors can dramatically change the atmosphere of a room by improving air circulation and providing an inviting path to patios and outdoor decks. Patio doors are available as French doors, center-hinged doors that swing open to one side from center hinges or sliding glass doors. If you like sunshine in your home, our French doors provide lots of natural light. French doors feature classic elegant lines and typically consist of one or more panels. The French door panels usually consist of glass and are built so that at least one of the panels can swing in or out.

Storm Doors to Keep the Bad Weather Away
If you want extra protection from bad weather, consider adding a storm door. Not only do storm doors help insulate your home and provide an extra measure of security, a storm door’s glass panel of protection helps to prolong the life of your door’s outer surface. Storm doors are available with full-view models with a large pane of glass, or with screens to provide ventilation in warm weather.

Pet Doors & More
Let your dog or cat be independent with a dog door or cat door. If you don’t want to open the door every time your pet wants to go outside, think about installing a pet door. Worried about stray cats or other unwanted animals coming into your home? An electronic pet door is a good solution. Magnetic doors stay securely shut, while a magnet on your pet’s collar allows the flap to open when your furry loved one gets close to the door.
