Did you know that the #1 home improvement for retention of value is simply replacing your front entry door? Something so small in comparison to the entire house really does add great value and worth to your property. After all, your entry door is the first thing that visitors and passers-by notice about your home. First impressions are important!
There are many reasons to replace a front entry door--your door is improperly sealed causing a draft, you're beginning a remodeling project or looking to update the look of your home. Whatever the reason, a new front entry door is a smart choice.
Here is a look at several of the most popular entry door styles to give you an idea before you talk to a contractor.
Wood entry doors are the traditional, timeless choice for many homeowners. They look good on just about any home, either stained or painted. However, wood doors require some maintenance. The amount really depends on the direct exposure to harsh sunlight, rain, wind, and dirt. If your wood door faces due east or west, then you'll have more upkeep than a door that faces north or south.
Steel entry doors are the strongest and most affordable door material on the market. However, they can still be susceptible to denting, which can be expensive to repair. Just because its a more affordable option doesn't mean you have to sacrifice on style. Steel entry doors come in many designs.
A fiberglass entry door combines the best of wood and steel. It looks similar to wood, yet requires practically zero maintenance. That's not an exaggeration--if not directly exposed to harsh elements for a lengthy period of time, the owner of a fiberglass entry door could go years without needing to do a touch-up or repair.
Used as an addition to your front entry door, storm doors are great at protecting your home from the unpredictable Dallas weather. Storm doors offer many benefits for your home including:
- protecting your entry door from dirt, rain, wind, and debris, allowing the entry door to last longer
- providing added insulation for your home via the “dead space” created between the storm door and your existing entry door
- allowing for natural lighting to enter your home while still protecting your home from outside elements
