Your entry door or “front door” is the first thing you and your company sees before entering your home. In addition, it also contributes to your house’s energy efficiency and keeps your home secure. EcoView Windows and Doors of Milwaukee has installed hundreds of beautiful entry doors around the Milwaukee area!
1. Your Door Is The First Thing People See
Just like your smile, your entry door is the first thing people notice about your house. From holiday decorations to welcome signs, the front entry door is what people see first when they approach your home. If your current door is tired, distressed or just plain old, it indicates that the inside of your home may be the same.
By installing a new front entry door, your entire home will look new again for a fraction of the cost of a complete paint job on your house! A door that’s painted in a color that contrasts the rest of the house’s color gives the entire home a completely new look.
Sturdy doors with contemporary features bring forth a sense that your home is well maintained and up to date. Replacing your old door with something new will boost your home’s curb appeal whether you’re planning to sell or not.
2. Lower Your Energy Costs
Older doors were not designed with energy efficiency in mind. Thankfully, new developments in door materials and workmanship are now much more efficient and can help you keep warm air in your house during the cold Milwaukee winter months and cool air inside during the warm summer months.
Replacing the weather stripping on an old door might help you some, but if the door itself is not a new, well-made door, it won’t do much for lowering your energy costs. Solid wood doors certainly have plenty of benefits, but a front door made of fiberglass or steel has much better energy efficient properties.
3. Added Security
Older doors made of wood or other types of thin material are an easy target for people who want to break into your home. These doors are quite simple to break, and this means that burgalars have an easy point of entry to get into your home. Hollow wood doors are particularly easy to break down, and those doors are often found in older homes in the Milwaukee area.
With a new entry door, you can choose from durable materials like steel that is almost impossible to puncture. Modern doors are designed to handle a lot of wear and tear which includes the possibility of someone trying to break in.
Don’t take a chance on the security of your home and family. A new entry door can add a layer of protection to keep you and your family out of harms way. EcoView Windows and Doors of Milwaukee will also add new locks which will also add in the security of your home and family.
4. Maintenance and Longevity
Your front door is probably the last thing you think of when it comes to maintaining your home. However, old doors can warp, split, or even become brittle over time. When this happens, you’ll either need to repair your door or replace it completely.
New materials for the home are made to last, and that includes our fiberglass and steel front entry doors. These materials are made to last, which means you won’t need to concern yourself about maintaining your entry door.
Modern doors can handle direct exposure to the sun as well as changing weather conditions that we often see here in Milwaukee without warping. A durable door means a safer and more secure home with much less maintenance.
5. We Carry Many Unique and Creative Styles
If you’re aiming to make your home stand out, a brand-new front door can do wonders to modernize your home. There are some beautiful new designs out that will take your curb appeal and your home’s value to the next level.
Instead of the classic white or brown door, try something in a bold color like a matte black or a rich, rustic red. Aside from trendy colors, you’ll also find front entry doors featured in new shapes and new frame styles.
Try a black frame around your door to give it some definition. Unique windows in a variety of designs will bring a little more light into your home while giving the curb appeal a contemporary, trendy look. With so many new styles to choose from, it’s easy to get a new front door that will bring your home into the modern age.
