Trying to view entry doors in a new light is like trying to reinvent the wheel. There’s just no denying that front entry doors make the first impression of your home and, as it turns out, you! But, aside of placing you at the top of the neighborhood call tree by improving your home’s aesthetic curb appeal, replacing your front entry door system also offers practical rewards.
According to the 2014 Cost vs. Value Report (www.costvsvalue.com) featured in Remodeling magazine, replacing your front door is the remodeling project that provides the most financial reward. Replacing your old front doors with new steel or fiberglass doors will give you a 153 percent or 115 percent return on your investment, respectively. Installing a new, energy efficient, front door system will also save you money in utilities. The Florida Solar Energy Center reports that the greatest amount of energy in your North, Central or South Florida home is used for air conditioning, much of which escapes through old windows and doors.
