Wood Entry Doors at Factory Direct Pricing for Washington DC Area Homeowners!
Yes, we have solid wood doors! While the trend is to replace old drafty wood doors with energy efficient steel or fiberglass, sometimes, only the real thing will do. Sometimes it’s a desired one-of-a-kind look, or an unusually large size of door or historical requirements intended to preserve the essential design elements and architectural integrity of a home as originally built.
When buying solid wood entry doors, quality counts! Bear in mind that there are no more old growth trees and you cannot seal a door with lead based paint or varnish. Many lesser quality wood doors are engineered from genetically modified wood species grown on tree farms. These trees grow fast but are not nearly as straight and strong as old-growth trees. You can always tell a door made from poor quality wood because it typically cracks and warps within a season or two.
Types of Entry Doors We Offer:
At Wheaton Door & Windows we specialize in wood doors which are specially engineered to stand against the weather we get here in the Washington DC Area. A special laminating process permits the door to resist the effects of moisture and temperature change which will weaken a lesser made door. Choose from a variety of wood species and styles shown below including Fir, Oak, Mahogany, Cherry, Knotty Alder, Pine and many more. There are an infinite variety of styles and glass options. Custom designs are also possible.

Steel Entry Doors in the Washington DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland Area
Our steel doors are the strongest in the industry. How strong? Our top-of-the-line products are made of 20-gauge rolled steel. That’s the thickest residential steel door on the market. Thicker steel means no dings or dents, better insulation and enhanced security. You won’t find the same quality doors at the Big Box stores. Most steel doors at those stores are made with 24-gauge or 26-gauge steel. They might look similar on the outside but they won’t hold up nearly as well. If you’ve ever seen a cheap steel door after a year or two, you’ll know what we’re talking about.
Another important feature on our steel entry doors is the heavy-duty hinging system. Our heavy-duty, ball bearing hinges are specially made to handle the weight of a well made 20-gauge steel door. Our customers rave about how “light and easy” our doors are to open and close. Better quality hinges make the difference.
Steel doors come in two types of finishes. Flat steel entry doors mimic the look of a well-sanded wood door. Grained steel doors have a pattern embossed on the surface that will look similar to a deeply grained oak wood door.
