When You Should Consider Front Door Replacement

Whether you have just moved into a new home or you’ve lived in your home for years, sometimes you have to replace your entry door. There are three main reasons for front door replacement:

  1. Aesthetics
  2. Security
  3. Energy Efficiency

Entry Door Aesthetics

If your entry door is old-fashioned, damaged, or unattractive, your door is reducing your curb appeal and probably making you cringe every day. Entry doors are the focal point for a home, and it’s important your door matches the “soul” of your home. Replacing your entry door with a new wood door or fiberglass door can completely change the look of your home. 

 Entry Door Security

Your entry door is a safeguard against intruders, and often your family’s first defense. The thicker your entry door, the more secure. Many newer doors include additional security features, like additional hinges and multi-point locking systems. 

Entry Door Energy Efficiency

Many older doors are not energy efficient, and can cost you hundreds of dollars every year. Replacing your entry door with a more energy efficient model increases your home’s value. Fiberglass doors are typically more energy efficient than wood doors.
