There are many benefits that can be achieved by installing a new front door on your Phoenix home. Aside from the classy, polished look that it offers, a new exterior door will also save money and help your home run more efficiently. And, as this article points out, a front door replacement can give you an ROI of nearly 500 percent!
Let’s look closer at five hidden benefits you may not be expecting from a front door.
1. Increased Security
Old doors are more prone to forced entry because they have weak points and lack modern safety features. A new front door gives you the opportunity to enhance your security features. You’ll get better hardware and durable materials that will help keep intruders out. For example, Pella’s doors use Baldwin hardware, which is ranked first in quality and security by architects, designers and builders across the country.
2. Create the Right Balance of Privacy and Light
You have many options for doors that will help you create the optimal balance of privacy and light. Selecting a front door with glass is the easiest way to create a welcoming entryway, but don’t assume you have to sacrifice privacy for natural light. Sidelights and transoms are a great option for bringing light into your home while maintaining privacy.
3. Make a Personal Design Statement
We all know that a new exterior door will give your Arizona home a new look, but it also provides you with a clean slate to show off your personality. It’s not just a new door you get, but also you can choose the color, material and style of your choice.
There are also enhanced features to consider like grilles, crossbucks, clavos, dentil shelves, decorative glass and more. Whether you want your home to capture the farmhouse style, a contemporary or modern style or a more traditional style, Greco Roman Construction and Design has something to fit your vision!
4. Boost Home Value and Curb Appeal
Another hidden benefit to installing a new front door is that it can boost your home value – by a lot! Most people are aware that a new door enhances curb appeal, especially if it’s in a bright color or has noteworthy features like glass. But a new door can add up to $24,000 on a home’s value! Even if you’re not planning on selling your house soon, it’s still nice to know that you’re putting your money into something that buyers will find valuable.
5. Increase Energy Efficiency
With a new, secure door made from efficient materials, you can also enjoy a more comfortable home. Exterior doors are common sources of drafts and leaks, which means your home will have a harder time maintaining a consistent temperature.
When this happens, your heating and cooling equipment have to work harder to maintain the temperature in your home. A new door will be well-sealed and prevent this from happening, reducing your utility bills and wear and tear on your HVAC equipment.
As you can see, a new exterior door is a wonderful way to enhance your property. Greco Roman Construction and Design carries top-quality brands like Pella and Milgard. Contact us today to look over your options and see how you can improve your Arizona home!
