Things to Ask Yourself Before Buying a New Entry Door

Your entry door plays a crucial role in many aspects of your home, including its protection from the elements, energy efficiency as well as curb appeal. With that in mind, we cannot stress enough the importance of making the right choices when it’s time to get a new door. Asking yourself a few key questions is one of the best ways to approach this stage.

New Entry Door

Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, the leading window and door replacement company in the region, lists three things to ask yourself before picking a new door.

  • What type of door should I go for? The answer to this question lies in the functionality of your entry door. Are you looking for something thermally superior? Perhaps you’re prioritizing security over curb appeal? Be sure to know which specific entry door features you’re looking for so you can select the best door type for your needs.

  • Which material should I choose? The choice of material plays a significant role in the performance of both replacement windows and doors. To accurately achieve the designated functions of your new entry door, you can research different material options by reading online or by consulting your trusted door contractor. Woodgrain, for example, offers a rustic and warm look to your home; fiberglass doors are strong and easy to maintain; and steel entry doors are incredibly durable, making them an ideal protective barrier.

  • What types of hardware and locks do I need? When choosing a new door, you also need to select the hardware and locks that go with it. That said, it’s important to choose mechanisms that suit your budget without sacrificing security. If you find it challenging, don’t hesitate to ask a professional to assist you.

"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!!!"
