When you walk up to your front door do you like what you see? Is it time for a fresh look? Is your door keeping heat in (or out) when you need it most? Try switching out your entrance doors.

If you are looking for an effective way to improve efficiency, increase curb appeal, be unique and add personal touches to your home, a front entrance door system is an obvious choice to invest in – it’s one of the most used parts of your home.
 

When to replace your door

 
The winter is a perfect time to do an inspection on your entry doors.  Look at your exterior doors to determine: 
 
  • If there are signs of damage due to deterioration or rot. 
  • If joints and hinges on the door are starting to come loose with wear and tear.
  • If you feel air penetrating through the weather stripping or the threshold, this is a good sign the seal is damaged.

In many cases, original door systems were designed to have a useful lifespan of about five to seven years, however, with a higher quality system and much improved efficiency, a homeowner can expect new doors to last well over 10 years.

 

Choosing an entry door system

 
When it comes to choosing the best replacement doors for your home, give careful consideration to the door’s component design and structure, which are key factors in achieving superior performance. Entrance door systems are being continually improved and retested to comply with ever-changing building codes.
 
Whether your home is modern, contemporary or a century home there are many options. The three main materials to

choose from are wood, fibreglass or steel. There is an endless variety of styles, whether you like glass or a solid surface, natural, stained or painted doors.

The exterior surface of your home will play a part in how a door system is replaced and installed. For instance, in an older century home where the door frames appear to be inside the brick, replacement can be daunting, but rest assured these can be replaced with many options available in keeping with the original style of the home.
