Old Front Doors: Three Reasons To Replace Them

Old Front Doors: Three Reasons To Replace Them

The door to your home is one of the first things visitors see, so why do so many homeowners wait until they’re damaged or worn out to replace old front doors? At Majestic Exteriors LLC, we handle all aspects of your home’s exterior, including doors. As the premier window and door installer in Colts Neck, NJ, we understand the importance of a quality front door. Below, we offer a few reasons to consider replacing your front door.

1. Increased Security

Besides keeping the weather outside, exterior doors provide security. When shopping for a new door to enhance the security of your home, most consumers choose steel or fiberglass. While steel is the most popular choice, it doesn’t provide the weather resistance of fiberglass. Steel doors also tend to get scratched or dented, decreasing the polished look of your home. 

Other advantages of a steel or fiberglass door include cost, selection, and durability. Fiberglass doors come in nearly any design you want and look just like wood doors. Both fiberglass and steel doors boast more durability, fire resistance, and ease of cleaning and maintenance than wood doors.   

2. Energy Efficiency

If you have an old front door, there’s a good chance it isn’t as airtight as it used to be. Over time, doors succumb to wear and tear, causing the door and even the entire frame to warp in fluctuating weather conditions. If your home has an old door, you’re vulnerable to drafts and moisture coming in from the outside. 

To preserve energy efficiency and avoid straining your HVAC system, consider installing a new door. Fiberglass and steel doors contain insulation, while their weather-stripping capabilities make them an excellent choice for improving your home’s energy efficiency.

3. Improved Curb Appeal

With the many door options available today, replacing your front door is a great way to add character to your home. From basic to embellished, French doors to Dutch doors, there’s no reason to settle for boring.
