When is the best time to replace your Front Door?

A beautiful new front door will instantly increase your home’s curb appeal. This is great news for those who are looking to put their home on the market as a new front door also greatly increases your resale value. In fact, replacing your front door is one of the best investments you can make as it increases your energy efficiency while also adding enhanced curb appeal.

Purchasing and having a replacement door installed for the front of your house is a major home upgrade. The front door of your home is one of the most utilized assets that you have. It provides you with a layer of security from potential intruders. It also protects you from the elements in terms of heat, cold air, rain, and snow. Your exterior front door is the entry into your home, and also typically sets up the design for the exterior and interior of your house. Purchasing and having a replacement door installed at the proper time can be very important

There are a few other considerations that should be made when choosing a replacement door. The first thing is to think about the design that you want. A replacement door is going to be something you look at every single day for years to come. You want to get a design that is going to allow your house’s exterior and interior to look truly special.

One of the biggest things when deciding on a replacement door is to time it out properly. Your exterior door should not get to the point where it cannot do its job. From a security perspective, this means providing adequate security from the outside world. If your front door can no longer lock properly, close properly, and so on, it is time to get a replacement door.

For a simple door replacement, measure the old door’s width, thickness (normally 1 3/4 inches) and height (normally 6 feet, 8 inches). Then note the direction the door swings.  You can call or email me, and I can send you a handing sheet so that you know exactly what the handing of your current door is. You will want to order a new door with the same handing as the one you have now.

Material also makes a difference when you consider a front exterior door. Solid wood is still one of the most popular choices out there. Some other options have also started to grow in popularity. These consist of doors made out of steel or fiberglass. These can be painted any color and are very durable, as well as secure.
