If you are updating your home, please do not forget about the impact a new front door has on your curb appeal. Your front door plays a major role in the visual appeal of your home in addition to providing the necessary function of security and separating indoors from outdoors. Replacing your old front door with a new one is one of the biggest things that you can do to improve energy efficiency, visual appeal, and the overall value of your home. Studies show that investing in a front door is well worth the money, in utility cost savings and resale value, typically adding more value to your home than the door replacement cost.
If your front door has seen better days, you would really benefit from an upgrade. Not only will a new door provide a nice new look, it will bring cost savings in heating or cooling your home. If you feel air entering your home around your door, it could be inadequate weather stripping, or maybe the door itself is warping and has lost its secure tight fitting seal.
Maybe your old door just doesn’t shut right anymore, or it’s cracked or split and you are tired of painting and repairing it. Whatever the reason, there are so many choices of new front doors to choose from, you can drastically improve the visual appeal, and function of any doorway by installing a new front door.
