When most people think about replacing their front door, they… Well, they don’t think about it at all. In fact, people flat out take it for granted. They find a door they like, throw it on their house and move along. But believe it or not – it’s one of the most important decisions you can make regarding the aesthetic appeal of your home.
How many calendars do you see about people’s chimneys or windows, after all? It’s always doors, door designs – etc. And that’s with good reason – a door says a lot about your house in a simple statement. What kind of home is this, is it inviting and do you want to be inside it?
Today, we’re going to give you some tips and things to consider when purchasing a new door for your home – and why it makes a bigger difference than you think. Let’s jump right in!
The first thing a guest sees when they walk up to your home is your entry door. It’s the last thing they’ll see when they leave. And you know what they say about first and last impressions! What your door is made of and what it looks like makes a difference.
People buy homes for all sorts of reasons but do you know what one of the top five things mentioned when buyers are looking to purchase a home is? The door. Yeah. Just the door. It can make a significant difference in the curb appeal of your home and most buyers’ interest is piqued from the road.
Doors not only give off the appearance of coziness, but they actually add to the sense of it, too. Solid doors keep the bad elements out and the good elements in. That means less money spent on heating, cooling and all things you do to try to make your home have the ideal climate for you and your family. That means significant money saved over time.
Air, water, critters, and intruders are all unwanted things that can come through a doorway. The stronger your door, the safer you and your family will be. And that added sense of security is quite literally priceless.
As you can see – there’s lots of reasons to buy a new door – but they add up in more ways than you’d think. If you’re thinking about adding a door to your home, give us a shout today and we’ll be happy to provide you with a free consultation. Until then, good luck!
