FAQ: Should I Replace My Front Door?
When you take the leap into remodeling, it is easy to get lost in the big picture and forget all about the essentials that go into making a house a home. For instance, it is simple to get swept away in the intricate design of the trim on your windows, and completely disregard the fact that your windows themselves need a little TLC as well. Avoid the chaos that comes from out of whack priorities, and begin your remodeling process with the heart and soul of your home – the front door.
Many people tend to forget that their front door is the glue that holds both a home’s interior and exterior together. Not only does your front door serve a practical purpose, but it also sets the style of your house for all those who enter -or even just look at it from the street.
It can be tricky to decide which project you should start within your remodeling efforts, but by beginning with your front door, you will be able to set the overall tone for tasks to come.
Not sure that your front door needs replaced? Think again.
If your home’s front door is more than a decade old, chances are it is not as energy efficient or stylish as it once was.

With advances in technology, your new front door will help decrease your energy bill, increase your security, and even add priceless curb appeal to your home.
