Have you checked your entry door lately? When it’s already old and failing, the better and longer lasting solution is a replacement. And, because this is quite the investment, you’ll want to make sure everything goes on smoothly. This means avoiding some of the most common door replacement mistakes, including the following:
Choosing the wrong door color: The entry door is one of your home’s most visible design elements so you’ll want to make sure it makes a big impression from the curb. For this reason, make sure to pick a door color that won’t look out of place with your home. You can either choose to match the door with the exterior palette or roof color, or pick a bolder hue to provide an interesting contrast.
Focusing on looks alone: You’ll want to take into account the replacement entry door’s durability as well. Its strength will depend on your choice of material. Illinois Energy Windows & Siding, Inc., for example, offers exceptional CastleView Door Entry Systems. They come with high-performance fiberglass facing to ensure maximum protection and durability, allowing them to resist cracking, splitting, warping and other types of damage. What’s more, they have a reinforced lock area for increased security.
Overlooking energy efficiency: Your entry door not only heads off the harsh elements and keeps your home beautiful; it also plays a key role in keeping your living space comfortable and energy-efficient. Our CastleView doors come with an advanced, rigid polyurethane core for excellent thermal protection. Not only that, they have a perimeter foam-filled weather strip for a long life seal that keeps out drafts.
