The Importance of Exterior Door Replacement

Posted by at 9:00 AM

Have you been looking over that long list of 2016 home improvements recently?  Are you wondering what to start on next?  If you’re concerned about energy efficiency and great payback on your investment, a new entry door might be the perfect solution for you. Although you may not realize it, that old door is probably costing you money.  What do you think you’d see if you looked at your front door with an infrared camera?  Most likely a lot of heat escaping, as older doors have less insulation than more recently constructed doors.  In addition, doors tend to warp over time, resulting in gaps for even more heat to slip out. Think of all the heat you’d save with the installation of a new entry door.  It just may reduce your energy bills enough to cover the cost of your new investment. By the way, doors are a great investment.  Many experts in the field of home renovation put new doors on their list of the top 10 improvements. You will likely be able to recoup up to 80% of your costs on exterior doors, depending on the one you chose. Wouldn’t a beautiful entry door be a great welcome when you come home in the evening? Here’s another thing to consider: old doors can be a security issue.  The doors of today have more safety features than they did years ago, making unwanted entries more difficult.  Help protect your family and your valuables with the security of a new front door. Are you looking to put your house on the market in the next few years?  The installation of a new door means increased curb appeal, resulting in a faster sale.  Of course, most people are more interested with the inside of the house, but that beautiful entry door might just be the ticket to getting them inside (no pun intended).
