When thinking about updating and replacing the entry door on your home, many of the benefits that are associated with a new door are quite obvious. But, in some situations the benefits are more obvious, like when your door is warped, chipped or damaged. These door malfunctions aren’t simply aesthetic, they compromise the security of your home. In these situations, a new door could provide an added level of security and peace of mind. Additionally, a door frame that is starting to show its age is also a major security concern for many homeowners. The best part of replacing your front door with a new one, is that added curb appeal that will give your home a whole new look. For many homeowners, by simply replacing their old, outdated door with a new, beautiful door, they will fall in love with their home all over again! While often times it is easy to focus on the added benefits that you can see, there are other benefits that aren’t so obvious, but provide tremendous benefits.
For many homeowners, when winter temperatures start to drop, and your home starts to get a draft, the initial reaction is to place plastic in front of the windows. This is done in an attempt to keep the warm air in, and the frigid winter air outside. What most homeowners neglect to realize is that this same concept applies to your doors as well. Doors that are older can be just as leaky as your windows, allowing for cold air to infiltrate your home. Air can seep in around the edges of doors that don’t fit in the door jamb tightly, and also through the wood or steel that the door is comprised of.
While many don’t see saving money on their energy bill as an added benefit to installing a new front door, it can be a huge benefit over time. With the addition of a new steel or fiberglass door that meets the energy efficiency rating, you’ll be able to keep your heat in during the cold winter months, allowing you to keep your hard-earned money in your pocket, right where you want it.
While energy efficiency is probably the biggest added benefit of updating your doors, there are additional benefits that you probably haven’t thought of. These additional benefits include:
- New doors are designed to withstand heat, minimizing warping, bending, and cracking over time.
- Rot resistant door frames.
- Increased home security due to the most advanced defense systems.
- Superior service and installation from leading industry experts at Thomas V. Giel Garage Doors.
