Why Replacing Your Doors Could Be the Best Decision You Make in 2020
Sometimes after years of seeing the same home day-in and day-out, you need a change. Maybe that change is moving to a new location and selling your current home to new homeowners. Maybe it’s just needing a new perspective on your home while you continue to live there. Either way, replacing your entry doors is one small, relatively undisruptive change that might be the best decision you make this year, changing your whole perspective of your home.
Everyone wants to feel safe within their own home. Unfortunately, as entry doors age, the security benefits you once might have enjoyed can start to fade. The material might weaken, and the hinges might rust or become loose. A new entry door will boost your security by virtue of it being new and more durable. It also might be made with a more durable material than your previous door. For instance, fiberglass doors are often preferred over wood doors these days because of the unbeatable strength of fiberglass without losing the beauty of a wood-like appearance.
Better Energy Efficiency
Have you been noticing a draft in your entryway, or maybe that your home seems to be losing heat on winter nights when you have the furnace running? This kind of heat loss could cause a spike in your heating bills and could make your home less comfortable. A new, energy efficient door such as a fiberglass entry door could boost your energy efficiency, stopping heat loss and lowering the cost of your heating bills as well as your home’s carbon footprint.
Your entry doors have an interesting role for your home. They’re both the main opening into the home as well as part of the wall. So in addition to allowing you and your guests in and out of your home, your entry doors also help to protect your home from the elements. Year after year, they stand against rain, wind, snow and debris. But if your door is old and faded, it may not be holding up to the elements very well. A new entry door can help to continue protecting your home from adverse weather as well as any force impacts.
