Is It Time To Contact a MN Exterior Door Company?

When was the last time you looked carefully at your front door?

The front door is an important focal point for any home. How do you know when it’s time to replace it? If you answer “yes” to any or all of these questions, you’re ready for a new door.

1. Are you paying high heating bills?
Windows may get the lion’s share of attention when it comes to energy efficiency, but doors can also be a source of heat loss. Older doors aren’t as well insulated as newer doors are. There wasn’t the same technology we have today back when they were made, but the years take their toll, too. As the years pass, your door warps with the seasons, especially if it’s made out of wood.

By replacing your older doors with newer models, your energy bills may drop nicely. Eventually, the door will pay for itself.

2. Do you want to increase the value of your home?
Whether you’re looking at selling now or later, a new door is still a wise investment. You may be able to get up to 80% of the original cost of your door back, depending on which model you select. That’s why a new door is usually one of the top ten suggestions made by home improvement experts.

Even if you’re not looking at selling, there’s nothing quite as nice as coming home to a lovely new front door after a long day.

3. Are you worried about home security?
Modern high quality exterior doors are built and installed with security in mind. They’re usually harder for people to break in than many doors installed in older homes.

Like the rest of the house, front doors are also subjected to harsh Minnesota winters and sweltering summers. The dramatic changes in temperature can cause doors to warp or decay to the point of not closing securely anymore. A lock doesn’t do much good when the latch won’t work properly or the door no longer fits in its frame.

Getting a new door installed will provide more peace of mind, a less stressful living environment and add value to your home.

If you have concerns like the above or others about your old front door, we can help you resolve them. We’re a licensed MN exterior door company which believes in creating better living spaces for our customers.
