By Your Fiderio Expert Jan 21, 2015
We have an extensive knowledge about the best brands for CT replacement entry doors. We contend that Therma-Tru Doors are the country’s leading manufacturer of fiberglass and steels exterior door systems. Most builders and home remodelers prefer Therma-Tru entry door systems. This blog post will cover what we believe to be the top four benefits of purchasing a Therma-Tru entry door.
According to a national study commissioned by Therma-Tru, a home with an enhanced Therma-Tru entryway added to its perceived value by as much as five times the cost of the door itself. Choosing a Therma-Tru door means you are making a commitment to add style and curb appeal to your home. More than ever before, CT homeowners are looking to get the most out of every dollar they spend on their home, and truthfully, the installation of an attractive new front entryway is a cost-effective investment that can have a big impact.
The price of a replacement entry door will depend on the size of the door you need, the number of panels you choose, and whether or not you choose lites and/or sidelites to border your entry door in ct. In general the more panels a door has, the more expensive it is. Adding lites to a door can also increase the cost, and if you do select lites, the type of glass you choose will be one of the main determining factors for cost. Price also varies depending on the material you choose and the manufacturer. In terms of value, Therma-Tru Reviews come out on top.
If you are considering buying a new front door, why not pick the most secure? Of course, you want maximum security to protect your loved ones, and when it comes to security, fiberglass, wood, or steel replacement entry doors are top of the class. Regardless of your choice, you want to be sure that the door fits tightly into the frame with no more than 1/8″ clearance between the door and the frame.
Energy Star rated doors must insulate well and provide a complete seal. Fiberglass doors insulate up to five times better than wood doors. The R-value of a material measures its insulating properties. Fiberglass doors from Therma Tru are installed with a polyurethane foam core(R-5.5 to R-6.5 per inch) which insulates much better than hardwood (R-0.71 per inch). Another advantage of fiberglass is that it does not conduct heat, which minimizes the exchange of heat between the two sides of the door, and in the winter, your door will be warm to the touch.
According to EnergyStar.gov, replacing drafty doors with energy-efficient doors that meet Energy Star requirements lowers energy bills by 7-15%. Each of our doors is sturdily constructed of durable fiberglass or steel around an insulated core, and then finished with triple-seal weather-stripping to maximize energy savings.
New doors can add both safety and value to your home, and reduce your energy costs. We recommend Therma Tru Entry Doors for many reasons: they are durable, energy efficient and offer some of the best safety features.
