What Should I Look for in New CT Doors?

By fiderioandsons Jul 10, 2015

The seasons in New England can take toll on your doors causing them to rot, warp, and loose their weather stripping. By replacing your doors with new CT doors you can make your home more attractive, energy efficient, and secure. When looking for a new door there are a few things that you should look for.


When you decide to buy a new door you need to look around at what style you want. Doors are made out of different materials so if you are looking to replace different doors you should consider materials. Sliding doors going outside can be susceptible to cold air and intruders. When looking for sliding doors seek an insulated glass door with strong locking features for efficiency and security. Your front door is what can make or break your homes curb appeal. Choose a door style that compliments your home but a color that adds contrast to your homes paint. With a beautiful design and contrasting color you can draw a visitors eye to your inviting front door.


Your doors are made out of many materials that offer different features to your home. Glass doors allow light into your home and give your home a nice look but could be susceptible to intruders. Wooden doors are great insulators and give your home a traditional look. Also since many wooden doors have cores in them they are very durable and energy efficient. Metal Doors have superior durability and security but also increase your homes energy efficiency. Metal doors also have a smooth finish that can be painted to really compliment and contrast your home. Fiberglass doors offer many different styles and colors that can really make your home look amazing. Fiberglass doors also offer amazing durability and insulation that increase your homes efficiency and resistance to the elements.


Since your doors are one of the most vulnerable parts to your home then it is important that you buy new doors that are durable and have strong locks. These new doors can give your home a heightened sense of security. Unlike older doors many new doors have additional safety features that prevent young children or animals from getting out.

A New CT Door can offer so much to your home giving it better energy efficiency, security, and overall appearance. A new door is a great way to better your homes curb appeal and to help contrast your homes look.
