Door Installation 101 - Why A New Front Door Will Spruce Up Your Property

Posted January 08, 2020

A new front door is one of the best ways to enhance your home’s exterior. This welcoming feature has a tremendous impact on your home’s curb appeal and is sure to increase its resale value. Not to mention, everyone sees the front door, so this is one upgrade that won’t be overlooked. Neighbors, visitors, friends and family will see your beautiful front door when they’re driving by or coming to visit.

Are you considering hiring door installation services to replace your exterior door? Below you’ll find the reasons why a new front door will spruce up your property - and make your neighbors jealous.

Improve Energy Efficiency

The weather changes frequently in New Jersey, making it more difficult to keep your home comfortable year round. Unfortunately, gaps in windows and doors are notorious for leaking out cool and warm air, raising your utility bills. Thankfully, a new front door will boost efficiency, offer improved insulation and lower your carbon footprint thanks to new materials and technologies.

Boost Curb Appeal

Considering some of the changes that can be made to your home’s exterior, a new door is a relatively affordable option. There are dozens of styles to choose from, including solid wood, fiberglass and steel. You can also customize the color and hardware of your door for a greater impact. For further customization ideas and beautiful craftsmanship, discuss your project with our custom millwork team.

Improve Security

The front door is one of the most common entry points for intruders. If your door is old and doesn’t fit right, this leaves your home especially vulnerable. By replacing your exterior door, you can enhance security and keep unwanted people out. Aside from the door itself, you’re also counting on the hardware to offer security, so consider the quality of the hinges, door knob and deadbolt lock.

Add Durability

Today’s doors are made from newer, more efficient materials. Even wood doors are stronger than ever before. Your front door can customized with fiberglass doors, decorative glass doors and other unique features for added comfort and privacy.
