Is it Time to Upgrade Your Front Door?
By fiderioandsons Jun 24, 2021
Your front door is often the first thing people look at when they pull up to your home. This makes it very important to ensure your front door is aesthetically pleasing if you’re planning to sell your home soon. But even if you still have many years left in your home, upgrading your exterior front door can provide a whole new look for the front of your home. If it has been a long time since you’ve upgraded your front door, here are some points to consider to know whether it’s time to do so.
Upgrade For Better Energy Efficiency
Front doors installed many years ago aren’t nearly as energy-efficient as new doors today. When it’s particularly hot in the summer or cold in the winter, stand by the front door from the inside and see if you can feel a draft coming through. Weatherstripping can help a little, but the door itself might not be designed for energy efficiency as well. An energy-efficient front door replacement can save you money on energy bills by creating a tight seal and keeping your interior temperature stable.
Boost The Curb Appeal
Your exterior front door is one of the biggest factors in the curb appeal of your home. A new front door makes your home feel more inviting and it can improve your mood when you get home. Modern features on doors are noticeable and you can choose from many different unique styles. But while you want your exterior front door to look beautiful, you want to be careful not to choose one that makes it look out of place from the rest of your home.
Additional Security Layer
Old front doors might not be sturdy doors, which can make them easy targets for burglars. Modern front doors can handle wear and tear much better than older doors, and they are virtually impossible to kick down. Combine a new front door with security locks and you’ll add protection for your home while boosting the aesthetics at the same time.
