Entry doors serve as focal points for any home. A good entry door will make a nice first impression for passersby and guests. It will also ensure protection from the elements all year long. If you’re in the market for new options, here are some buying tips
Choose a Durable Material
Material will directly affect the durability, maintenance, and appearance of your entry doors. Fiberglass and steel are two of the most popular options known today. You can rely on steel doors for security and durability. They will not crack or warp and endure dents due to extreme weather conditions.
Fiberglass, on the other hand, is a maintenance-free option that can withstand harsh climates. We recommend this material for homeowners who want to have the look of wood without the maintenance issues.
Consider the Size of Your Entryway
The size of your doors will depend on the size of your home. Some may require taller, thicker, or wider doors, and some homes will need double doors. When choosing your front doors, consider decor that surround your doors. They include transoms, sidelights, and windows.
Set a Realistic Budget
Entry door replacement is an important investment, so you need to consider different factors when setting a budget:
- Energy efficiency
- Performance against weather conditions
- Maintenance requirements
- Long-term benefits
- Hardware choices
- Life span
