What To Know: Replacing Exterior Doors

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF REPLACING EXTERIOR DOORS?

  • Curb Appeal
    • A new door is a cost-effective way to refresh the look of your home without a major remodel. It can be as simple as changing out the old door for a new one in a contemporary color.
  • Security
    • New steel and fiberglass doors are an extra layer of protection because they are difficult to kick in, are more tamper-proof. And a new door is a good time for a new lock system. If security is a serious concern for your home, please consider replacing all exterior doors that may be a prime target for criminals.
  • Technology
    • New technology can make fumbling for your keys to unlock the door an annoyance of the past. There’s a wide array of new lock systems that work with a code on a push pad to entire systems operated remotely with a smartphone.
  • Energy Efficiency
    • Older doors – especially wood versions – and their framing wear out over the decades. If you feel a draft around your door, that’s outside air coming in, which also means your conditioned air is escaping. That’s a comfort and energy bill issue that can easily be corrected with a new door and framing.
  • Accessibility
    • From baby strollers to walkers to wheelchairs, a front door that’s easy to access is a major lifestyle improvement. Changes that benefit everyone include switching to a wider door with a zero-clearance threshold; lever-style door handle that can be opened with an elbow; trading out steps for ramps.
