Are you in the market for some new doors for your home? If it’s been a while since you’ve bought and installed doors then you may be shocked at how many options there are. There are countless options for style, color, material, and hardware. Here are 4 questions to ask when deciding on a new door for your home:
New doors are an investment and they’re not something you switch out very often on your home. The variety of options can turn some homeowners away from making a decision. Three things you should keep in mind to help you make a decision are style, energy efficiency and security.
Style: are you more into the craftsman style for your home? Maybe you’d like a more traditional look? Do you want to make a bold statement or are you looking for your door to blend in with your home? These are a few things to ask yourself when looking at the style of your door.
Energy-efficient: If you want to lower your heating and cooling bills, new doors are a great way to do that. Your home loses a lot of heat/cool air through your door and a new high-quality door can help insulate your home.
Security: a door is what protects your home so it’s important to think about what door will give you and your family the most protection possible.
For most homeowners, the front door is the most important door in their home. Your home’s front door is the first thing people notice when they’re coming to your house and an attractive front door will set the tone for how people perceive your home. Three of the most common materials used for front doors are wood, fiberglass, and steel.
Most homeowners forget that when they pick out a new door they’ll also have to pick out a set of locks and hardware to go along with it. Locks range in price and security. When you are working with your contractor, work with them to decide which type of lock will look the best with your door and give you the sense of security you desire.
While most doors swing inward, there are options if you’d like it to swing outward. Majority of homeowners in New York would prefer to have the front door swing inward to help in case snow gets piled up in front of the home.
