What to Consider when Purchasing a New Entry Door

Are you thinking about purchasing a new entry door for your home?  Your entry door is one of the first things most of your guests see and probably the most used door in your home. For this reason, you want to be sure you get exactly what you want and need for your investment. There a few variables to consider when purchasing a new entry door; design, material, safety, energy efficiency, budget & warranty, just to name a few.

Each home has its own unique look. With that being said, you want to make sure your door design compliments the rest of your home. When shopping, consider color, style, whether you want window inserts or not, while at the same time making sure you combine beauty and durability for the perfect fit.

The most popular material options for doors are steel, fiberglass & wood. Did you know fiberglass and steel doors are three to five times more efficient than most wood doors? Another great quality for purchasing a fiberglass or steel door is that they offer less maintenance than most other door options.

Any door you choose should always have the safety of your family in mind. You can choose additions to add to your door like steel frame construction, reinforced handle and deadbolt, all which provide added security.

Consider purchasing a certified energy efficient product. This will save you money while lowering your energy bills at the same time. It will add comfort and efficiency that will shield you from the cold winter months and the hot summer heat. Lastly, it can protect your belongings and valuables from fading or discoloring should you decide to go with glass inserts in your front door.

It is very important to make sure you find a reputable company that makes your home improvement project as easy as possible. A reputable company will help you select and install the best products and assist you with financing options to stay within your budget

A warranty is only good as it’s company. Each manufacturer has warranties specific to their products. In addition, some retailers may provide extended coverage on the installation of the product.

There's no greater peace of mind than knowing you have one less worry by having your doors installed by professionals.

Picking the right entry door is a huge decision. But once installed, you will have an elegant entry that make a great first impression for years to come!
