A large portion of your house’s curb appeal depends on its exterior doors. Doors aren’t just pathways that get you in and out of the house; they also reflect who you are. You can tell what type of homeowner lives in a house by simply looking at their exterior doors. Therefore, many property owners invest in new doors.
But before we talk about front door replacement, it’s essential to learn about when you need to install a new door.
When Should You Replace Your Exterior Doors?
As experts in exterior residential doors, we recommend replacing yours as soon as you see the following signs:
- Your front door doesn’t close or open properly
- You notice drafts around your doors
- Your door gets stuck
- Breaks, scratches, and visible damage to your door
These problems hinder the use of your exterior doors and make them impractical. If this is the case, it’s time to replace your doors.
Why You Should Install a New Door
Many homeowners stall a new door installation. If you think your door can last 5 more years, think again. Installing a new exterior door comes with the following benefits:
A drafty door can cost you a lot of money in utility bills. If your door isn’t properly insulated, heat will escape and cold air will trickle inside in the winter, and vice versa in the summer. As a result, you need to turn your heater or AC on for longer to keep the house’s temperature exactly how you like it. Our doors come with energy-efficient weatherstripping that ensures proper insulation. We also go the extra mile to apply any additional weatherproofing techniques to guarantee 100% insulation.
Ease of Use
One of the most common problems with old doors is that the hinges no longer work or the door doesn’t close easily. While the solution to this problem can be a simple lubricant application, sometimes door hinges are damaged beyond repair. Nonetheless, this kind of damage is natural since elements of wear and tear inevitably affect the quality of the door. Installing a new door spares you the trouble of damaged hinges. As a result, opening and closing your front door is no longer a hassle.
In addition to functionality, installing a new door enhances your home’s appearance. We offer a wide range of designs, styles, and colors, so you can match your exterior doors to the overall design of your property. A new entry door comes with many advantages that make it a worthy investment. A beautiful entry door will raise the value of your property and will make right first impression on potential buyers if you decide to sell your home.
Essential Entry Door Features
Looking for a new entry door can be challenging. You want an exterior door that can handle weather elements, changes in temperature, and regular use. Here’s what our doors offer:

Our doors are made of steel because it’s a tough material that can withstand the test of time. Steel is also eco-friendly because it is 100% recyclable.

The slab is the focal element in a door. Our doors usually come with either one or two door slabs that are fully customizable to match your house’s design.
The doors we install have premium weatherstripping to ensure full insulation and energy-efficiency. This way, you reduce your utility bill in the long run.
Homeowners often overlook thresholds as a cause of drafty doors. However, our doors are draft-proof and insulated so cold or hot air doesn’t enter your home.
Sturdy Glass Inserts
Glass panes in a door play an important role. Our doors come with sturdy glass panes that allow light inside the house yet maintain a room’s temperature.
Quality Door Handles
Door handles are arguably the most used part of a door. Therefore, we install high-quality door handles that can stand rigorous use.
A Door Transom
A transom is a glass pane installed above the door slab. Its main purpose is to let more natural light inside the house.
Sidelights on an entry door serve two primary purposes. Our doors have sidelights because they add natural light into your home as well as decorative appeal to the door.
