Why You Should Consider Installing A New Entry Door
Choosing to install new entry doors on your home can come down to making a number of decisions. Design, quality, and energy efficiency are all factors that need to be considered when deciding whether you need a new entry door. Some of the most common issues we see with existing entry doors is that they haven't been replaced in 15-20 years. This means that the weather stripping and doorframe have seen years of use. With the heavy use that an entryway door gets the weather stripping can begin to wear down and the door can start to hang crooked. When this happens it creates gaps where air can enter and leave your house causing unwanted energy loss and by association higher energy bills. Our team of experts can inspect the entry doors of your home to ensure that they are hanging properly and that no air gaps are present.
Choosing The Right Entry Door For Your Home
When choosing a new entry door for your home it is important that you consider the many factors that come with a new door. This includes design, security, and energy efficiency, which are all important. In addition to this, there are many different materials to choose from that offer different benefits for both security and energy efficiency. Take a look below to see how choosing a particular door material can help you save energy.

The material itself has foam insulation inside, helping it to prevent air leaks.
This is a traditional choice but it isn't as energy efficient as some types of materials available. The wood can swell and shrink based on temperature and humidity changes. It can also rot, warp, bow, and buckle after time if it isn't properly maintained.
