Top Three Shopping TipsExterior Front Entry Doors

Exterior front entry doors are the first thing visitors see when they come to your home, so purchasing the right door is a big decision. You want a door that offers excellent curb appeal, weathers extremely well, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Today’s manufacturers offer a wide variety of front door styles in different materials and with varying options. These choices mean you can customize your exterior front entry doors into a unique style statement. It also means you might experience a bit of confusion on where to start. Here are three shopping tips before ordering your new exterior front entry doors.

Do you need an exterior front entry door system?

Manufacturers today create a complete exterior front entry door system that comes pre-hung in its frame. This means the bottom edge connects flush with the threshold for a weather barrier, and the door comes with weather stripping already installed around its perimeter. Unless you’re only looking for a simple replacement door, it’s best to get the exterior front entry door system because it comes complete with hinges and locks designed as part of the system. Some new exterior front entry doors come with sidelites you can have installed to offer a new and more interesting look to your home. The biggest benefit of buying an exterior front entry door system is that all components come from the same manufacturer and are designed to work together smoothly. They also provide better energy efficiency.

How to measure for exterior front entry doors

If you’re simply replacing an existing exterior front entry door, measure your door’s width, its thickness which is usually 1 3/4 inches, and its height which is normally 6 feet 8 inches. If you’re buying a brand new exterior front entry door system that’s pre-hung, you need to measure a bit more. Since you’ll be replacing the door jamb as well as the door, you must measure the door jamb’s thickness. Start at the inside of the exterior molding and measure to the inside of the interior molding. This gives you the wall’s thickness. Now stand inside your home looking at the front door. Is the handle on the right or left side? On the right means you order a right-hand door, and the left means you order a left-hand door.

Are you considering glass?

Called glazed entry doors, these exterior front entry doors offer a wide variety of glass options to choose from, such as clear or etched glass, beveled or leaded glass, and much more. You may choose to have panes of glass called "lites" in certain panels of your front entry doors. It’s best to make sure all lites are either double- or triple-glazed to get the best energy efficiency from your new front door. Another option that can save you money if you’re considering a leaded glass window is to opt for caming (the lead strip between panes of glass) that’s not real lead or brass; both options are more expensive than false caming.

Each home owner and house are different, so choosing an exterior door that matches your personality and specific home design is crucial. You will find a variety of door styles, materials, hardware, and finishes on our website that can narrow down your choice. Rather than sticking with what you know, review all of them and imagine how each will look on your home. Something will strike you as just the right door for you.

Size

What front door size is right for you will depend on the size of your entryway. Standard front entry doors are generally 80 inches in length, 36 inches in width and about 2 inches in thickness (80X36X2). Depending on the house, it’s possible that your entryway is different and might need a taller, larger, thicker, or wider entry door. In some cases, a double entry door may be more suitable for your needs.

Moreover, to make sure you choose the perfect sized door, it is also important to take into account any transoms, sidelights, or other decorative elements. Make sure your front entry door is wide enough to easily accommodate bulky furniture items. In case you are still not sure what door size is right for your home, don’t hesitate to get in touch with an expert for help.

How To Replace Door Weather Seal

A door weather seal is placed between the bottom of an exterior door to seal the gap between the door and the floor. The weather seal stops inside air from escaping into the outside, and air from outdoors coming inside, preventing uncomfortable conditions and increased energy consumption.

On average, weatherstripping lasts 3- 5 years, although some products last much longer and some much less. The type of weatherstripping selected and care of the product both affect the duration of time it’ll last. There’s also a plethora of things that may cause the weatherstripping to deteriorate or otherwise become damaged.  Pets and humans can both cause damage to weatherstripping, as can pests, the age of the material, improper care, and various weather conditions.

Deteriorating or damaged weatherstripping allows air to escape from the home and allows outside air to come inside. It also suffices as an entrance point for pests like ants, spiders, cockroaches, and bees who want nothing more than to make themselves right at home underneath your roof. Inspecting the door weather seal yearly is ideal. As you inspect the weatherstripping, look for signs of deterioration and damage, including:

  • Weather seal that’s bent or otherwise lost shape
  • Dry, brittle, or cracked weather seal
  • Losing adhesive foam, or foam that has pulled away from its fixture
  • Missing adhesive foam
  • Missing nails

If damage is noted, don’t delay learning how to replace door weather seal with the step-by-step guide below. You’re letting heat and air escape your home, costing a considerable amount on your heating costs. Outside air and pests coming indoors create a big nuisance. Temperatures inside your home are likely uncomfortable. You’re suffering without merit, since a DIY weatherstrip replacement is a simple procedure that protects your home, comfort, and peace of mind. Expert door seal replacement isn’t necessary, as any homeowner can complete the task in a matter of hours with a few tools in-hand. Gather the items you’ll need and prepare for a day of DIY weatherstripping fun.
