The first thing you’ll need to do is pick your material, so find out what you should know about the most popular kinds. In addition, learn how contemporary front doors can save you money in two different ways. You can also discover how contemporary front doors can work in almost any home, no matter the style.

Pick Your Material

One of the first steps in choosing a door, no matter its style, is determining the kind of material you want. All materials have their advantages and disadvantages—evaluate them by choosing what’s important to you. Wood is the oldest door material and is prized for its looks. However, wooden doors are more vulnerable to nature, especially wet weather and insects, so they must be properly prepared and maintained. Fiberglass can have the look of wood without the upkeep. They can crack if struck hard, but overall, fiberglass doors are more durable than wood. For another option, think about metal doors, which are strong and low-maintenance. You should keep in mind, though, that they can be dented and scratched. Furthermore, if scratches aren't fixed promptly, they can rust.

Double the Savings

Since contemporary front doors are made with modern technology, they’re usually made to be energy efficient. Insulating glass, higher quality cores, and better weather-stripping are just some of the features that can improve your door's energy performance. Doors can be energy efficient whether they’re solid doors or contain glass. Ratings to look for including the U-value, which measures how well a material blocks heat loss. The lower the rating, the better the insulation. In addition, getting energy-efficient doors doesn’t just mean you’ll feel more comfortable in your home—you’ll also end up saving money. In fact, you could save money in two ways—not only will your energy bills be lower, but you could also save with your utility company. Some companies offer rebates for energy efficient renovations.

Style Champs

If you're browsing for contemporary front doors, then it's safe to say that you care about the way your home looks. You're sure to find something eye-catching with contemporary styles. There aren't standardized details that mark a door as contemporary—as opposed to say, a carriage-style door—because contemporary doors can refer to many different styles. That means that these doors can work with a variety of home styles. There are some tells, though. These doors just look more modern. Metal doors can lend themselves to an industrial look, while fiberglass and wood doors look sleek and stylish. In addition, you can add interest by personalizing the hardware and other features. Horizontal windows and pull door handles (instead of traditional hardware) are unexpected and enhance the modern look.

Contemporary Front Doors – Three Important Facts to Consider Before You Buy

Contemporary front doors are a wonderful way to make a fast and affordable update to your home.

Therefore, you want to make sure your front door helps to improve the appearance of your home.

You may already have contemporary front doors, or you may have traditional doors and are now looking to make a change to the appearance of your home. New contemporary doors can:

  • Increase the curb appeal.
  • Add personal expression
  • Save you money in the long run.

So, with all these things in mind now seems like as good of a time as ever to go ahead and make that purchase, but there are a few things that you need to look into before making your purchase.

Warranty

Often times you will find that doors will come with a manufacturer warranty. You should look closely to see what will void the warranty and how long of a warranty is offered on the door. An entry door can be a costly investment depending on the door that you choose to purchase. Online you’re often find the specifics of a warranty spelled out. Does it cover all manufacturing defects? What about the materials themselves? If you buy a new door that was assembled by a different company that one that made the pieces, is it now a limited warranty for the materials?

You need to be sure that you are able to get reimbursed should you have a problem with the door that is due to no fault of your own. Different companies will offer different warranty specifications, it is just best to know what that is before buying your new contemporary door. All it takes is a little online digging or a visit to your local home improvement store to talk with an expert there. If you don’t find what you need to know, call up an installer and see what you can learn about warranties on doors themselves. They’ll be happy to help.

Energy

Your heating and cooling bill can be greatly affected by drafts in your home, these could be window drafts or door drafts. The heat that your furnace is working so hard to create should not leak out of your house and make it keep working even more, because that’s just wasted energy. Check into the insulation that the door offers and if there will be windows in the door you need to make sure that they are able to provide as much draft protection as possible. The material of the door itself will also help to form a strong barrier between the outside temperature and that inside.

Most windows in front doors are double glazed or offer some variation of glazing but don't just assume make sure to check into it. Also, you need to be sure that when the door is installed there are no gaps that could allow air out and outside air in, small leaks can have a much greater effect on your utility bill than you are probably aware of. As you stand by your current door, do you feel any drafts around it now? Does the size of the door fit correctly?

It's an Investment

You shouldn't look at the purchase of your new door as a cost but instead, consider it an investment. You have worked hard to earn it, and when you spent the money on your home, you recognized that you won’t be paying rent to someone else but are now investing in yourself and your family. The right door can not only save you money on energy cost but by increasing the curb appeal of your home it can actually increase the value of it as well. This, of course, is not always the case, but more often than not you will find that the money you spend on your door will pay for itself in time.

Lowering your energy cost will help with the return on your investment. When you install a new contemporary door, it too is an investment because if you want to sell in the future, your prospective buyers will see you value the quality and updated style that come with it. Having a door that doesn’t need to be replaced will be just one more positive on their list of pieces that are required for their new home.

Questions And Answers

What are the design characteristics of a contemporary door?

Many contemporary door designs feature simple, straight lines closely associated the mid-century Modern look. But it’s a mixed bag of looks. Some door designs rely on a distinct linear pattern, rather than color, and others combine both graphic patterns and vibrant colors. Often, you’ll see vertical or diagonal slats, abstract designs in glass, geometric inset glass panels, or blocked or square raised panels or panes of frosted or translucent glass that run the length or width of the door. Hardware and handles can be larger, focusing more on minimalism than traditional door hardware and complement the door’s clean lines.

What are doors made of?

Contemporary doors come in a number of different materials. Wood is still a popular choice, with grain that can be either very distinctive or less pronounced. Alloy/aluminum/metal doors have a distinctive industrial look, often fashionable in contemporary settings. Fiberglass is low-maintenance, strong and energy-efficient; won’t warp, expand or rot; and can be stained or painted in a variety of colors. Composite doors are a mix of materials, often with a core of solid wood or insulating polyurethane foam. Frequently designed to look and feel like wood, composite doors won’t warp, are lighter and less expensive. They also come in a broad color range.

What color door should I get?

If you decide to paint your front door, consider the design elements that are part of your house. A more contemporary home will often sport a bold colored door or a serene monotone look. Bright colors that pop, like lime, turquoise and electric yellow, are popular in contemporary settings where form is usually sleek and linear. Also, consider updating the details around the door to match, like doorknobs, knockers, mailbox/slots, etc.

Should I get a prehung door?

Prehung doors are all-inclusive—they come with the framed door and hinges, door jambs, sill, door shoe and weatherstripping, so are weathertight and easier to fit than a slab door, if you follow installation guidelines. A prehung door also is a good choice if you don’t have an existing door frame.

What about hardware?

For sleek contemporary doors, fashionable finishes like chrome, satin or brushed nickel are nice complements. Handles can either be oversized or minimalistic, depending on the other details of the door and setting. Long, linear bars placedvertically to serve as door pulls are a popular option. Often, deadbolt locks accompany this type of hardware.

What type of lock should I get?

Deadbolt locks are highly recommended to prevent break-ins and ensure safety. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has a grading system for locks and deadbolts. Grade 1, the highest level, is intended for commercial security, although there are some products that can be used in residential applications. Most homes have locks with a Grade 2 rating, which aren’t as heavy-duty as Grade 1, but generally offer more protection than you should need. Grade 3 locks are not as secure as Grade 2 and not generally recommended for the main entry point.
