The entryway into your home is the first impression visitors have of your home. Entry doors need to be sturdy enough to handle a number of conditions such as scorching sun, high winds, rain, ice and hail. They should also have security features to protect your home from potential intruders. All doors have a lifespan and if your home’s front door has reached it, it could be letting in more than it is keeping out!
Often older doors are warped, cracked and fail to fit the door frame properly. This can allow for air leakage which can make for higher utility bills, not to mention letting in bugs and drafts.
Luckily, today’s entryway door options are many. Perhaps you’ll opt for a glass panel entryway door to lighten up a dark entranceway or get a fiberglass-composite door that has the look of wood but provides greater security and can be lower in cost. Steel entry doors are affordable, durable and virtually maintenance free. Wood is still an option and can really add style to your entryway. However, keep in mind that although today’s wooden entryway door choices are more energy-efficient than previous options, there is still regular maintenance required.
If you’re not sure you need to replace your entryway door, Here are 4 signs to look for.
#1: Your door won’t shut. Unless you put your back into it!
#2: You can see daylight around it.
#3: You can tell the weather outside without having to open your door.
#4: Your door is ugly or your entryway is the darkest part of your home.
