Your exterior entry doors and garage doors probably make a bigger statement than you realize. They are often times the first thing you see when you walk through the door, and your front door can certainly make or break a first impression of your home among guests and prospective buyers. If you are considering any significant exterior renovations to your home, the team at Advanced Exteriors urges you to consider replacing your exterior entry doors, as leaving old doors can detract from the overall aesthetic of your home. We encourage your to take a look at the images of exterior entry doors and garage doors installed by Advanced Exteriors, as you begin to look for inspiration for your home.
Even if you aren’t planning a full remodel of your home, a new entry door or garage door not only makes a big aesthetic impact (check our photo gallery if you need convincing), but it also can help promote energy efficiency. If your home is feeling a little drafty or your door is cracked or warped, consider replacing your old door with a new fiberglass, aluminum or wood door. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages, but the experts at Advanced Exteriors will help you sift through the options and find the perfect door for your home and your budget.
Still not sure if your entry door needs replacing? Here are a couple key indicators that it’s time to replace your front door.
Do your existing exterior doors open and close with ease? While sometimes doors that stick merely require a simple hinge adjustment, for example, often times doors that experience difficulties opening and/or closing are warped. Warping is somewhat common in older doors – particularly those crafted from wood and located in extreme climates. With heat and cold, exterior doors can expand and shrink, respectively, and ultimately lead to gaps between the door and either the threshold, jamb or frame. Needless to say, these gaps allow for air transfer and can increase your heating and/or cooling costs. The experts at Advanced Exteriors will gladly help you inspect your door for warping and, if needed, help you find a beautiful new entry door that meets your needs. Our image gallery is a great way to see firsthand how great a new exterior door from Advanced Exteriors can look.
Wear and Tear
Exterior doors are a primary means by which you protect the interior of your home from the elements. Additionally, entry doors provide the first line of defense in securing the contents of your home. If your entry door is cracked, dented, rusted or otherwise damaged, it may not be providing you with the overall protection you deserve, be it from Mother Nature or from intruders. If you find that your exterior door(s) is beyond repair and is no longer serving as a useful barrier, give the Advanced Exteriors professionals a call and we will help you find a door that adds curb appeal (have you seen our pictures above?) and works well for your lifestyle.
