If your wooden entryway looks lackluster or isn't functioning properly, you may be considering a new door installation. Here are some benefits of this upgrade to your home.

Why Should You Replace Your Front Door?

1. Improve Energy Efficiency

A solid steel or fiberglass door combined with a sturdy rubber sweep at the bottom can increase your home’s energy efficiency by providing better insulation. This will result in using your heater less in the winter and the air conditioning less in the summer months.

2. Limit Upkeep 

Traditional wooden doors are prone to bending, warping, and bowing and require regular maintenance. In addition, the paint may chip and the color may fade after exposure to the elements and the sun's UV rays. Fiberglass and steel doors can maintain their color and structural integrity for many years and are dent-resistant. 

3. Feel Safer

A door installation can enhance your home's security. If your current wooden door is already damaged, it may not provide the level of protection you need from unwanted guests. Modern materials like fiberglass and steel are stronger and made to withstand the efforts of would-be intruders. You can also invest in a video doorbell or install new locks with longer screws that extend beyond the door jamb for a stronger hold.

4. Improve Visual Appeal
