Front Entry Doors – Protect Your Home From the Elements and Intruders

Front entry doors protect your home from the elements & intruders. They are a must-have for all South Florida homes.

Besides offering protection from damaging winds, sinister intruders and rising energy costs, impact doors also reduce noise and provide better home insulation. Find out more about these benefits here!


Your front door is one of the most important parts of your home. It impacts the way your house looks and the security of your family and belongings. It also helps protect your home from damage caused by severe weather.

South Florida is no stranger to hurricanes or other severe weather, which can wreak havoc inland and in urban areas. Upgrading to impact doors is the best way to prevent damage to your home from these severe storms.

The main benefit of impact doors is their ability to withstand the force of strong winds, harsh rains, and flying debris. They are also designed to effectively seal out air and sound waves, which can help reduce your energy costs.

Hurricane impact doors are not only beautiful, but they can increase the value of your property. They are a must-have for homeowners who live in high-velocity hurricane zones. They will keep you safe during a hurricane without the need to install plywood or make additional preparations for a storm.


As a homeowner, you want your front door to resist the elements and protect your family from intruders. But, you also want your door to be a focal point that elevates the aesthetic of your home’s exterior.

The best entry doors are those that are energy-efficient. They help you save money on your energy bill and keep your indoors cool in Florida’s scorching summer heat.

Fiberglass is the ideal material for entry doors, as it offers the beauty of wood and the strength of steel – without any compromises. SIW’s fiberglass door options include custom leaded and melted glass, an array of colors, and beautiful wood grain finishes that enhance the curb appeal of your home.

These doors are not only stylish and durable, but they’re also resistant to moisture. They won’t rot or succumb to termites like wood does, and they won’t rust either. They also feature a thick fiberglass skin that provides four times the insulation value of wood.

Timeless Elegance

A beautiful exterior door can elevate the entire appearance of your home, creating a sense of arrival that beckons guests to enter. However, it’s important to choose a style that prioritizes architectural harmony and is authentically you.

Fortunately, the experts at Art Boulle specialize in creating entryways that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional, offering a wide selection of customizable designs, finishes, and sizes to suit any home.

For a more rustic look, select from an array of wood doors that feature natural beauty and durability. Options include solid Honduras mahogany, knotty cypress front doors, and Brazilian kingwood, among others.

Those who prefer an elegant, minimalistic aesthetic can opt for fiberglass front doors with customizable panel and glass designs, sidelights, or transoms. The material resists wear and tear better than steel and is far less susceptible to corrosion. In addition, fiberglass front doors are hurricane rated and offer a level of protection that surpasses the typical steel option.


The scorching sun, tropical storms and hurricanes that frequently batter South Florida require entrance doors that can withstand the punishing elements. These impact-resistant front doors look just like ordinary models, but have been specifically designed to protect your home during severe weather events.

Impact-rated doors withstand repeated smashing, banging, and pushing without breaking, allowing you to keep unwanted intruders out while keeping your family safe. These durable entrance doors also meet local building codes, allowing you to qualify for an insurance discount on your homeowners insurance.

While all Florida homes must follow the state’s minimum Florida Building Code (FBC) requirements, some areas, such as Coastal Palm Beach and Broward Counties and Miami-Dade Counties, require High Velocity Hurricane Zone standards, aka HVHZ. Our impact-rated front and patio doors are tested to meet HVHZ specifications, making them a great choice for these counties. They’re also an ideal option for any homeowner seeking additional security against burglars. We’re a preferred manufacturer, dealer and installer of these products for both new construction and replacement projects in Wellington, West Palm Beach, Lake Worth Beach, Port Saint Lucie and Pompano Beach.
