Why Should I Change My Door?

Your front door is the first thing visitors see when they come to your Burlington home, so it’s important to make sure it gives a good impression. Upgrading your front door is an easy renovation for your home, and it can benefit you more than just aesthetically. If you have been considering changing up your front door, here are a few reasons why you should do it sooner rather than later!

New Exterior Doors to Improve Security

Builder grade doors with weak frames or double doors are targeted for break-and-enter since they can be kicked in without much effort. Upgrading your front door to a single fiberglass door with one or two sidelites allows for a stronger frame structure which provides you with higher security – preventing burglars from breaking in.  While you are replacing your front door system you have the option to upgrade the lock system on your door to a high-quality locking system. We provide several different lock sets – one being a multipoint locking system. A multipoint has three latches that turn into deadbolts when locked offering the highest security. A multipoint lock not only allows for strong security but also pulls the door nice and snug to the weatherstrip for a tight seal.

Lower Utility Costs

You might notice that your builder-grade doors are a little drafty due to the framing wearing out over the years. When you are upgrading your front door system Doorway provides heavier weatherstrip and a six fin sweep so that we can ensure a tighter seal to prevent the cold air from coming into your home. Most often drafts are indicated on double door systems because a tight seal can’t be formed on two moving doors – a tight seal can only be made on a solid fixed frame. Choosing a single fiberglass door with one or two sidelites is the best way to prevent drafts from coming in,  as a single door is closing into a solid frame.

With rising energy costs in Ontario, an energy-efficient door could go a long way in saving you money.

Better Curb Appeal

A new door can transform the look of your home. At Doorway we are able to customize the right door system for your home. There are a variety of paint colours, sidelite and door styles, glass options and hardware options to choose from. If you are thinking about selling your home in the near future, a new door is a quick upgrade that can make a big impact on potential buyers.

Fibreglass doors also allow you to customize the look of your entry door, meaning you can choose between a modern or traditional look!

Upgrade Technology

With a new door, you have the opportunity to upgrade the lock system. Instead of the traditional key lock, you can decide on a lock system like a keypad or even a door that locks and unlocks remotely from a smartphone app.
