Is it time to replace your home’s front door? You might think those few dings and peeling paint are easy fixes, but small issues with your front door can lead to bigger overall issues in your home.

An entry door should last a homeowner an average of 20-30 years of regular wear and tear, protecting you from the weather and potential intruders. Here are three reasons why you should consider replacing your door:

SAFETY

Safety is probably the most important feature you want in an entry door. It’s not only a welcoming entry point to friends and family, it’s your barrier against intruders. Cracks, dents and dings are signs that the structural integrity of the door may be compromised and in need of replacement. New doors have more security and locking features including sophisticated multi-point locking systems, and are built with strong materials like steel and fibreglass. 

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Is saving money on your energy bill important to you? The good news is that all new doors are Energy Star® rated, providing you with an energy efficiency guarantee. Old doors can cause drafts which will not only increase your energy bills but can lead to illnesses and allergies within your family.

STYLE

A new front door is a quick and cost-effective way to refresh the look of your home without a major renovation. A new colour can provide a fresh pop to your curb appeal or you can change the style of your entryway by including a door with sidelights. These are small changes that can make a big difference in the look of your home.

Your front door is the focal point of your home, so an upgrade means instant curb appeal, and a stylishly functional door not only shuts out weather and holds in home energy, it increases your home’s value. Today’s doors are built with durable materials and insulating which are integral to eliminating drafts and reducing street noise.

It’s a great time to buy a stunning new door that will add to your home’s value, improve comfort, increase energy savings and ensure security. Call Dayside Windows and Doors today and speak to one of our entry door sales specialists.
