Front doors—they’re as much a statement of style as they are a practical household entrance. Combined with your landscaping, driveway, and other yard decor, yours hammers home the vibe you’re going for, as well as providing a convenient route to your driveway.
But there’s a lot more to a front door than meets the eye—and if yours isn’t up to the rigors of modern-day life, perhaps it’s time for a replacement. Intelligent Design Corporation, your Maple Grove providers of door installation services, are here with a few little-thought-of benefits of updating this integral part of your home.
Get Peace of Mind With Added Security Measures
If your door is old, wooden, and on the more economical side of things—to put it nicely—it very well could be an easy entrance for would-be thieves.
Think about it: if you were to hear the loud thump of your door being kicked in, you could mistake it for a family member bumping into the furniture—and while you’d certainly rush to see if they were alright, you most likely wouldn’t have the panicked reaction you would if you heard a window breaking.
You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to embrace the added security measures of a modern door, both for your safety and for your peace of mind.
Add a Little Pizazz to Your Front Sidewalk
Your front door is the first thing that visitors see when approaching, so it’s an upstream battle to distract the eye from a door installation that might be a little on the dingy side.
Instead of trying to hide scratches in off-color paint or hoping displaying your huge collection of houseplants will do the trick, embrace the spotlight with a gorgeous new centerpiece for both your entryway and porch. Not only will you feel more proud of your home, but should you want to sell in the future, a lovely front door starts tours off on the right note.
Cut Down on Your Bills
Coupled with new window installation and potentially improved residential roofing, a new front door is the cherry on top of a revamped, energy efficient home. Any place with access to the outdoors is prone to drafts, and older doors are no exception—in fact, as with any draft, they both strain your HVAC system, resulting in costly repairs, and make you pay more for energy in the first place.
