Upgrading Your Front DoorAs we mentioned in one of our previous blog posts, “Increase Curb Appeal with New Windows and Doors; Increase Your Home Value,” there are many benefits to Upgrading Your Front Door. The investment will pay dividends! This is why 56% of Realtors advise their clients to invest in new windows and doors.

Upgrading Your Front Door

When looking at new front doors, there are several things to consider other than aesthetic appeal.

1) Door Materials

  1. Steel: The most affordable front door option on the market today, steel is known for its strength and durability. Additional benefits include: minimal maintenance and upkeep.
  2. Fiberglass: With a wide variety of styles, fiberglass front doors are also built to withstand almost any client. Additional benefits include: minimal maintenance.
  3. Wood: At the end of the day, nothing beats the look and feel of real wood.

2) Door Swing

Which way will your door swing? Inswing or outswing? While most exterior doors are built to open inwards, your front door can be designed to open outward.

3) Door Handling

Do you want a door with a left hand swing, with the hinges on the left, or a right hand swing, with the hinges on the right?

4) Panel Type

Doors are available as an all panel style or with a glass panel insert.

The right glass can add both style and energy efficiency to your home.
