Best Exterior Doors for Wisconsin Homes

Entry door with decorative glass inserts and sidelites

Our Southeast Wisconsin homes are built to withstand river and lake humidity as well as extreme winter weather and sweltering summer days. But no matter how well-built, a home’s undamaged exterior doors are effective for 20–30 years at most.

Your entry door is the first impression visitors have of your home. It can improve property value and curb appeal. Most of us also have side and back doors that must be durable and secure. Convenient, space-saving sliding glass doors and beautiful patio doors are popular because we enjoy the beauty of where we live.

Zen Windows Milwaukee is Wisconsin’s leading choice for well-made, energy-efficient doors with superior security features. Our materials and hardware are sustainable and efficient.

Front & Entry Doors

Your front door is the first impression visitors have of your home. And first impressions matter.

A Zen Windows replacement entry door increases your property value and curb appeal, and the monthly energy savings and return on investment when selling often means your door practically pays for itself. If this is a front-door project for your forever home, the increased security and safety make it a solid investment.

Exterior replacement door considerations include:

  • Appearance: Colors and woodgrains are important for doors as well as frames and trim for sidelites/side windows. Zen Windows entry doors are lower maintenance and scratch-resistant, too.
  • Energy efficiency: We have insulated front doors that offer twice the thermal resistance of most exterior doors.
  • Security: Our entry door materials offer greater security than wood or steel.

Sliding Glass & Patio Doors

Wisconsin families are naturally outdoor people. It makes sense because we live in one of the most scenic and land-diverse states: We have no real mountains (but some massive hills), over 17 million acres of forests, and many ocean-like beaches! That’s part of why Zen Windows Milwaukee specializes in sliding glass and patio doors.

Sliding glass doors give you a room with a view. They are two glass panels positioned on a track; one stays in place, and the other slides to open and close. Because they don’t need swing space, Zen Windows sliding glass doors maximize any room’s living space. They also offer more interior decorating options.

Enhanced lifestyle is just one of the benefits of sliding glass doors in Wisconsin. In addition to a scenic view, they are a natural light source and a good way to monitor kids while they’re outside playing or swimming.

You have many options with Zen Windows patio doors. Our security hardware is installed using industry-best processes and materials. The frame and door materials, colors, finishes, and glass panes are customizable, and you also have several glass coating and insulation choices.
