The Value of Investing in Quality Exterior Doors for Your Minneapolis Home or Business

There are few investments that you can make to a home or business that will stand out quite as much as a modern entry door. That’s because entry doors are a part of every person’s first impression when approaching a building, and because they have a major impact on its energy-efficiency and security.

Make a Big Impression with Your Front Door

Choosing a high-quality entry door such as Ultrex from Marvin or a ProVia® external door can make a long-lasting impression on your visitors. The doors that have a modern look will really stand out while giving your home a more upscale appearance at the same time.  Older or historic homes might be better off with a more traditional door style, but you can really ramp up even an old-style door with the right options like art glass or sidelights.  

Business owners can make their office or place of business look more well-established with quality exterior doors, and it’s an investment that can pay off over time.

Enjoy Long Lasting Protection with a Well-Made Entry Door

Buying a quality brand like Ultrex fiberglass doors ensures that you have a nice looking product that’s going to last over the long term. That’s because the door is designed to stand up to the elements and continue functioning well for years after the initial installation. It’s an excellent investment that you’ll enjoy for the life of your home in many instances.  You can also choose a steel door that has the look of wood but is much more secure.  

Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

While many people don’t think about it, exterior doors really do affect a home’s energy efficiency. Quality doors are built from insulating materials and will help hold the cold out in winter and the heat out in summer.  And it’s important for that door to fit snugly in its opening to avoid air leakage.  Adding a top-level storm door can lower your energy bills and will almost certainly make your home more comfortable to be in.

A Quality Entry Door Provides Enhanced Security

Most criminals go in right through the front or back door, because that’s easiest. Get a rock solid door like fiberglass or steel and you’ll have a solid line of defense against criminals hoping to gain entry. You’ll enjoy the added protection and will feel at peace while off on vacation as well.

An exterior door is a major investment, but it’s one that can really pay off and make your home more valuable while adding to its security, energy efficiency and overall appeal. Speak with a representative at Window Outfitters today and find out about all your exterior door options.
