Buying A New Front Door? Make Sure You Know Your Facts
The front door of your home is not just an entrance; it’s what welcomes everyone who comes to your home. It needs to not only compliment your architecture, but also be a reflection of your personal style. When it’s time to replace it, you really have an opportunity to showcase who you are and make a bold statement to all who see it.
Here’s what you need to consider:
- Choose a material that not only fits your budget but the climate. Wood has timeless beauty but doors constructed from it can be expensive and prone to warping during the hot Las Vegas summers. Opt for fiberglass instead which is relatively maintenance free and can be fabricated to mimic the appearance of wood.
- If you have your heart set on a model with glass panels, make sure it is low E glass for energy efficiency. You might also want to choose privacy glass so those pesky salesmen won’t be able to tell that you are home.
- No matter which door you choose, make sure it has security features such as an outward swing and deadbolts. Adding a kick-in prevention device like the Strikemaster II can frustrate would-be intruders while giving you added peace of mind.
- As much as you love the look of a mission-style door, it will look very out of place on your Mediterranean-style house. Your door should complement the existing architecture rather than detracting from it.
