Top 4 Reasons to Replace Your Old Front Door

Replacement windows and doors are popular options for home improvement. Not only do the right products add energy efficiency to your home, but they also improve its curb appeal.

Replace Your Old Front Door

Your front door is one of the most important parts of your home. It keeps your home safe and secure and also protects it from the elements. As it is exposed to the elements, it goes through wear and tear. Over time, an aging door will become unsightly and less efficient. Its functionality might also be compromised.

Consider these reasons to replace your front door. Remember, it’s not about finding the best reason to replace your old door. It’s about finding the reason that’s right for you.

Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

One of the most common factors that necessitate window and door replacement among many homeowners is home energy loss. You might notice a gradual increase in the monthly bills you pay for energy. This means your home is losing energy efficiency. Different components can lead to this. If a home inspection or energy assessment points to your front door as the primary culprit for energy leaks, it’s time to consider replacing it with a better product.

Increase Your Home’s Value

Most homeowners cite this as the first reason to replace an old, battered front door. Did you know that your front door makes up a big percentage of what amounts to curb appeal? A good replacement door can provide a dramatic increase in the value of your home. Buyers appreciate a pretty door, but they also love one that adds energy efficiency.

Make Your Door Easier to Operate

You’ll feel better about having a new, more beautiful front door, and you won’t have any regrets installing one whenever you open or close it. An old door can stick, become misaligned, and have other problems with operation. If your door is old anyway, it’s probably time to replace it with a better one.

Increase Your Home’s Security

A durable and solid door with reliable hardware is an important part of home security. Most intruders would enter a home through the front or back door if it’s easier to do that. A new door can make them change their mind and try a different target. A homeowner who cares about the condition of their doors and windows is likely to have a more secure home.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
