Homeowners sometimes overlook the importance of their front door. But this entrance serves several vital functions and shouldn’t be taken for granted.
Consider the following:
Energy Savings: An insulated, well-sealed and energy-efficient front door can contribute to measurable savings by preventing excessive loss of cooled and/or heated air.
Security Statement: Burglars can easily examine your home’s first line of defense without raising suspicion. A heavy front door – preferably with a steel shell set in a solid jamb – is a strong indicator that you are not lax about security.
Pride of Ownership: The front door can be an important complement to any home’s exterior décor, as well as a statement of individuality and a source of pride.
