When it comes to your home’s exterior, your entry door is often one of the most overlooked pieces, even though it can be a major focal point and provides your home with a number of important benefits. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of replacing your home’s entry door, keep reading below for more information!
One of the most common reasons that homeowners elect to replace their home’s entry door is that they’re in search of the boosted security that a new entry door can provide! If your door is beginning to crack, or the hardware is coming loose, it will affect your door’s ability to keep your home properly protected!
Another common reason that homeowners tend to replace their entry door is if the door is looking outdated or worn down. Your entry door is one of the first things that people notice about your home’s exterior, so having a door that has seen better days can actually detract from your home’s beauty and value. If you’re interested in boosting your home’s curb appeal, installing a new entry door is a great option!
If your home’s energy bills have been increasing lately, your home’s door may be to blame. Your doors & windows are two of the biggest contributors to energy loss, and having a door with outdated insulation or a poor seal can quickly cause your energy costs to skyrocket. Whether your door was poorly insulated to begin with, or warping, cracking, or other damage has contributed to an overall decrease in energy efficiency, replacing it can help lower your energy bills for years to come.
As your family grows, or life changes, so do your needs from your home. You may need to install a new entry door to help provide a level of accessibility to your home, such as if you have young children in the house and need to fit a stroller through the door, or perhaps a wheelchair.
Although it falls under utility & security as well, some homeowners replace their entry doors due to improved technology that allows them to install a more secure replacement. The advancement of door technology has led to a number of new locking systems, including numbered push-pad locks, smartphone locking systems and much more! If you’re trying to improve your home’s security, installing a new entry door is one of the best ways to do so!
