How to Choose a Welcoming Front Door

 

Come right in!  Your front door is probably one of the most hard working features in your home.  Greeting friends, opening to trick or treaters and getting shut quickly on solicitors are all situations your entry way will see over time.  When the time comes to replace it, the choices may seem daunting.  Lets break this process down into three areas you should focus on when choosing a new door.

 Cost

View this purchase as an investment.  Replacing your front door is a home improvement that has a great return on investment ratio.  That means the value you are adding to your home will be offset by the price of the door.  If you see your family moving in the next 5 to 10 years, a quality front door will lend curb appeal as well as value to your home.

Today’s blast from the past: the Rolodex!
