Does Your Entryway Take Their Breath Away? With the Right Front Door It Can!

This month we’re thinking a lot about entry doors.  With the change of seasons homeowners all around the greater Minneapolis area are opening doors and windows to let fresh air and sunshine in.  One of the most important exterior doors in your home?  The front door.  There are a lot of reasons that this particular door should get your focus in terms of prioritizing home improvements.

(BTW, Martha Stewart says that giving your front entry a makeover is one of the top 6 things you can do to improve your home’s value.)

Why Is My Front Door So Important?

You might wonder why your front door is such a big deal.  Well, consider these points:

  • Real estate professionals will tell you that in terms of return on investment, replacing your front door is one of the top projects to tackle.  It’s also a less expensive makeover than many others.
  • You only get one chance to make a first impression, and your front door is it!  As people pass your home, the front door is usually the first thing they will notice.  It’s often a make-or-break item for prospective home buyers.  If a buyer out home shopping isn’t drawn to your house by an inviting front entry area, they are liable to keep on looking.  And even if you’re not putting your house on the market now, your front door is what greets family and guests.  Does yours say ‘Welcome’?  For many people, the front door is the one that gets used the most.  It’s going to be opened and closed frequently, so having an energy-efficient door that seals shut is important.
  • Did you know that most home burglaries are through the front door?  Having a secure door such as a fiberglass or steel one can keep those villains out.  And adding a high-quality storm door that complements your entry door will add another layer of protection. 

Now that you’ve gotten the idea that replacing your front door is something you should consider, follow our blog for an upcoming article on tips for maximizing the WOW factor, using that new front door as a focal point for an entryway makeover.  Oh, and if you need some incentive, if you schedule your project now, you can take advantage of our online discount coupon – save $500 on each entry door installation!
