Front Entry Door Considerations

The front door keeps your home and your family safe from the outside world, but it also contributes to your home’s overall look. Your front door can make a statement if you want it to. If you’re in the market for a new front door for your Burlington home, here are a few things you should consider before buying.

Your Budget for a New Front Door

Talking about money can sometimes be uncomfortable, but when it comes to any kind of home renovation, you need to know how much you can (comfortably) spend. Additionally, setting your budget upfront will allow you to make sure you’re only looking at doors within your price range and don’t pick out something that will totally blow the budget.

Front Door Options

When it comes to front doors, there are generally three kinds of materials the doors are made of wood, fiberglass, and steel.

There are benefits and drawbacks to each of these materials, and you may already know what kind of door you want. Spend some time researching to determine which door material best suits your home and what you’re looking for.

Style of Entry Doors

As with houses, there are different styles of doors you can choose from. Most homeowners will choose a style that compliments the style of their home.

The first thing to do is to determine the style of your home. You should also consider if you want to add glass to your front door or if you want a solid door. Adding glass – even if it’s frosted – can help add light into your home if the space is otherwise dark.  Transom windows are another option to let more light into your home.

Energy Efficiency of Front Doors

Efficiency is referring to the energy efficiency of the door. Many older doors or double doors, you’ll notice, will be a little drafty and therefore will be letting the cold inside in the winter and your air conditioning outside in the summer. If this concerns you – speak to a representative at Doorway Inc. and we will suggest a few options to keep out the air flow.

Entry Door Security

While it’s nice to have an attractive door, it doesn’t mean anything if the door isn’t secure enough to keep your family safe. Doorway provides two options for hardware. We offer a high-quality door lock or a multipoint locking system.
