Your entry door means a lot more than you think it does. Not only does it welcome guests to your door step, it frames your whole house, complementing the style and colors of your home as well as your surrounding property. An ornate entry door shows off your elegant side while a classic wood door shows off your strong classic style. According to Remodeling Magazine, a new entry door allows you to recoup an average of 91.3 percent of the cost when it comes to resale value.
Therefore, the decision can’t be made lightly. Why not take these trends in entry doors into account?
Opulent entryways are making their way back into the popular trends these days. A stunning front door is a must, but you can also dress it up with plenty of windows, sweeping stairs with railings, a wrap-around porch, gabled roof and more.
You can go semi-casual with the door itself but add a special touch with accents like transom windows, arched doors or even wrought iron hardware such as door knockers. Whatever you can do to stand out in little ways will make all the difference.
Today’s front doors are getting bigger. For a major impact, consider an eight- or nine-foot tall door instead of the standard height. Not only are doors getting taller, they’re getting wider – up to three-and-a-half feet wide in many cases.
If you’re going to go to the expense of putting in a new front door, you might as well make sure it’s energy efficient to keep your home better insulated. With today’s state of the art door materials, it’s easier than ever to stay more comfortable through all seasons and save money on your energy bill. In fact, here at Rescom Exteriors, our Bristol entrance doors insulate five times better than solid wood doors.
You may have a hi-tech alarm system in your home, but if your front door isn’t strong and secure, you are still vulnerable to outside influences. Today’s entry doors feature enhanced security, such as special lock reinforcements, 18-gauge steel frames and locking-pin hinges. Choose from heavy gauge, welded steel doorframes and decorative panels for a lifetime of security. But you don’t have to compromise beauty for security. These doors are just as gorgeous as any wood door, with the added peace of mind of a rugged material.
