When it’s time to replace the front entry door of your home in the Kansas City metro area, there are many factors to consider before you even start looking for a door company. At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we’ve been helping homeowners beautify their homes with exterior remodeling products – including replacement doors – for more than 40 years, and we suggest that you create a checklist of features that you want most in a front door before you start shopping. Here are a few items to start with:
The front door provides so much more than entry into your home. It’s one of the most noticeable features of your home’s façade. That’s why real estate professionals often recommend a front door replacement as a relatively easy way to increase curb appeal if you’re planning to put your home on the market. Even if you’re not selling your home right away, you’ll want to choose a front door that suits your aesthetic taste but also complements your home’s architectural style and meets homeowners’ association requirements if applicable.
You might not think about your front entry door as a contributor to the energy efficiency of your home, but doors that are custom crafted from fiberglass or steel can provide far better insulation than yesteryear’s wooden doors. If you’re interested in purchasing a door with glass inserts, you’ll want to look for the same energy-efficient features you’d require for your windows, such as double- or triple-pane glass. Make sure you check the ENERGY STAR® ratings on any front entry doors you’re considering to ensure that you’re investing in a home upgrade that can potentially help lower your heating and cooling costs.
Although front entry doors aren’t the most expensive upgrades, investing in a high-quality door that you’ll be proud to see on your home will probably cost enough that you won’t want to turn around and replace it in a few years. Therefore, you’ll want to choose a door that’s made of long-lasting materials like steel or fiberglass, and you’ll want to ask about the warranty you’ll receive with your purchase.
At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we take pride in offering our customers some of the most beautiful and high-performing front entry doors on the market. The doors we expertly install for homeowners are custom manufactured by ProVia®, one of the most respected names in the industry.
