The front door is so much more than just a means of entering and exiting a home. Not only is it the first thing people see as they approach your home, but it can say a lot about you and your home. What statement is your door making now? If it’s telling you to replace it, then it’s probably a good idea to listen to your intuition and invest in a stylish new door.
While upgrading a front door might sound insignificant, a brand-new door can elevate your home’s curb appeal to a whole new level. If you’re on a budget, but looking for a simple way to improve the exterior appearance of your home without a major renovation project, then purchasing a new front door is a small way to make a big impact.
More Natural Light
If more natural light is what you’re looking for, then purchasing a front door with windows is an excellent option. If you love the idea of a door with windows but have privacy concerns, rest assured there are plenty of privacy options to consider including frosted, opaque, and decorative glass.
A new front door is the perfect opportunity to revitalize your home’s exterior energy. Whether you choose a bright, colorful door, or a wooden door with windows, a new door adds style and a freshness to your main entryway.
Technology is always improving, and doors are no exception. New front door construction is layered to resist a forced entry. Combined with integrated multi-point locking systems, upgrading your front door can increase the overall security of your home, even if you choose a door with windows.
More Energy Efficiency
A new front door can also improve your home’s energy efficiency, therefore reducing heating and cooling costs. New doors have better insulation properties, allowing them to hold in heat during the winter and keep it out during the summer. Most steel and fiberglass doors are filled with a polyurethane foam insulation, and contain an integrated bottom rubber sweep as well as quality compression weather stripping on the frame to tightly seal out the elements. If energy efficiency is an important factor for you, then ask your local replacement door professional about a new front door with a higher ENERGY STAR rating. ENERGY STAR is a government program aimed at helping consumers save money on energy costs and protecting the environment with superior energy efficiency.
Modern steel and fiberglass doors made today are far more durable than older wood models. The exterior construction and materials with these doors are built to last and aren’t susceptible to chipping, peeling, and bubbling like with wood doors. That’s not to say that a quality, new front door made of wood isn’t durable and built to last, but a wood door typically requires more maintenance than front doors made of steel or fiberglass.
More Curb Appeal
As mentioned above, replacing your old, boring door with a stylish, modern new front door will vastly improve the curb appeal of your home. If you’re thinking of listing your home on the market soon, a new front door is a great investment that will catch potential buyer’s eyes.
