Many of us don’t use our front doors. With easy-to-open garage entryways and side doors, sometimes our front entryways can be overlooked. However, when it comes to making renovations on your home, few projects can be seen as budget-friendly while also making a big difference to your home. From energy efficiency to curb appeal, replacing your door can offer several benefits.
A fresh entryway can help you enhance your curb appeal, acting as a low-cost way to change the look of your entire house. A vibrant color is a trendy way to make your home stand out, which can be especially great to have around the upcoming holiday season.
40% of a home’s heat is lost through drafty windows and doors. Replacing your doorway can be an energy-efficient alternative to paying exorbitant energy bills, while also making your space more comfortable. If you notice cooler air around your doorway or even drafts coming in through the area, it may be time to consider a door replacement.
Low-quality doors can be a big security threat to your home. Burglars often target homes with doors that are easy to kick in, meaning a strong, solid door can be a huge deterrent to intruders. Suburban Lumber offers a variety of solid wood, fiberglass, and steel doors, ensuring that you don’t have to sacrifice your family’s safety for a beautiful front entryway.
If you’re looking to replace your front door, it’s a good idea to see a variety of doors in person before making your selection. You’ll want to ensure that you measure your doorway and take a few indoor and outdoor photos of your entryway for comparison before you make any decisions.
