Your Front Door Upgrade: A Before & After Checklist
Of course a new front door for your home will spruce things up a bit. It’ll add a bit of character and personal style to your entrance way. But is that really a good reason alone to undertake this particular home improvement project?
Probably the best way to think about this is to consider how this will increase the safety and security of your family foremost. Do you have an entry gate or a closed off courtyard that already provides privacy to your entrance, or is your home’s entry a bit more exposed so that an Iron Entry Door would add more security?
Also consider the value that such an upgrade to your entry way brings you in terms of energy cost savings and improved property value.
And finally, a new entry door will add to ‘curb appeal’ to enhance the look and feel of your home and to the neighborhood.
Let’s take a look at this before and after shot to see how a typical Arizona homeowner might benefit from upgrading to an Iron Entry Door:
|Security & Privacy||Thin glass with a narrow wood frame can easily be broken by intruders. It also provides very little privacy.||This Iron Entry door has scrolls and textured glass that help obscure the view to inside the home. In addition, iron doors are much stronger than wood, which deters intruders.|
|Energy Efficiency||Single paned glass with no UV coating to reflect UV rays. Glass that’s not resistant to heat penetration into your home.||First Impression Iron doors are fully insulated in order to maximize energy efficiency. Also, dual pane tempered glass and a coating that reflects damaging ultraviolet (UV) and infrared rays helps keep the Arizona heat outside where it belongs!|
|Curb Appeal||This door is exactly like all the neighbors’ doors and provides an air of uniformity instead of character. This is a pretty standard design and likely came with the home as part of a builder package.||Your custom Iron Entry Door will be built to your home’s specifications and designed to match your style and budget. It will enhance the character of your home’s entry by reflecting your individual style and taste!|
Best of all, research suggests that when you sell your home, you will recoup more than what you invested on your First Impression Iron Door. Iron Entry doors have a 101.8% return on investment and have shown to be one of the single best exterior home improvement updates you can make.
