When thinking about window and door installation, many homeowners think first about their front door. Choosing a certain exterior door style can help define the character of your house – after all, it is the focal point of your home. If you’re looking to boost curb appeal, looking to replace an old door, or are just looking to spice things up – a new door might just be the sort of change you need.
But it’s also important to consider a number of other factors such as performance, durability, and security when thinking about window and door installation.
Today we’ll discuss a few things you should consider when replacing your front door.
Security as Primary
The number one function of your front door is to prevent intruders from breaking in. So it’s important to search for a door that is durable enough to not get kicked-in or easily broken into. It’s equally important to consider the locking system when thinking about door security. You’ll want to invest in a quality locking system that works in correspondence with the framing around your door.
The obvious function of your front door is to open and close without any issues such as jams, or sticking. If your front door fails to perform this basic function, it effectively jeopardizes security – and can also lead to other issues like moisture and water coming inside your home, or cold or warm air from leaking out.
The durability of your front door largely depends on what material your door is made up of. Common door composition materials are wood, fiberglass, vinyl, and steel. Fiberglass and steel doors are known for their durability. Wood doors have been the more traditional go-to when it comes to front doors. Vinyl doors are also quite common, and are known for their durability and uniformity when paired with vinyl windows.
