Top Three Shopping TipsExternal Front Doors

Buying external front doors can seem like a big proposition. Your front door is one of the first things visitors see, so you want it to look good and add curb appeal, especially if you're considering selling your house some day. However, you also want it to work well and be a good value for your home.

To find out what you should look for when you're looking for an external front door, learn how to pick your material. In addition, find out how to use your front door to protect against the elements and to protect your home from intruders.

How to Choose Material

One of the first decisions that you'll need to make about your new front door is what material you want. To help narrow down your choices, it's often helpful to make a budget first, because different materials can have wildly different costs. For example, wood is usually more expensive than steel or fiberglass doors. However, if you really want the look of wood, you may want to budget for that expense. There are, of course, other things you might be looking for besides cost or style. You may want a door that requires less maintenance, for example. If that's true for you, then you'd be better off choosing a steel or fiberglass door. It's up to you to figure out what's important and what you can afford.

Weather Proofing

The climate in which you live can and will have a big impact on what kind of door you pick. For instance, if you live in an area with a lot of snow or a lot of rain, you'll want a door that will keep out the elements. Wood and fiberglass doors will resist the weather better than steel doors. Wood, however, will require more upkeep when exposed to a lot of moisture. If your area gets very cold or very hot, you'll want a door with good insulation. Steel and fiberglass typically are better insulators than wood, but most doors, no matter the material, lose the majority of air around the door. So make sure that no matter what kind of material you pick, you take the time to insulate around the door itself, using weatherstripping or foam insulation.

Positive Reinforcement

No matter what material you pick for your door, you can reinforce it to make it stronger. First, make sure that you're picking a proper external door. That means picking a door with a solid core. Hollow core doors are cheaper, but they're not appropriate for external doors. Then invest in a quality lock and door hardware. They don't have to be expensive to work well. You can help them work better by anchoring the parts into the door frame with screws that are at least 3” long. You want secure hardware because it doesn't matter how strong your door is if the hardware crumples at the slightest impact. In addition, if your front door has glass panels, consider a multi-locking system, so it's harder to unlock if the glass is broken.

What Look are You Going For?

What Type of Curb Appeal Do You Want?

It is important to consider what type of curb appeal you want for your home as well. Do you care what your neighbors or others who are driving by would think of your home? Do you want your family and friends to think your home is higher-class? Do you want a curb appeal that says anyone is welcome here?

Remember too, that if you want to sell it, possible buyers may drive right on buy if the house is too shabby and they are traditionalists.

Consider the curb appeal that you would like to have for your home. Once you decide on that, you can then choose the type of material for your external front door. For example, if you want a more secure-looking curb appeal, steal front doors might be your best option. But if you want it to say, hey, c’mon in, it might be a more rustic door. Stand out at the curb and look at your home with some color strips or wood samples and hold them up. What look right to you! It IS your house and it should be the way you want it to be.

Do You Want a Higher Tax Value for Your Home?

The final thing you should consider when choosing external front doors is whether you want a higher tax value for your home. This could be a tricky one to figure out. Of course, if you have a higher tax value on your home, your property taxes would probably increase as well and that could be an extra expense. While that might sound like a bad thing, the few pennies extra you pay to support the local schools and government could pay you back in better services and economy bringing the cost of living down. Confused yet with this circular route?

However, it could also increase your home’s value if you ever choose to sell the home as well. If you do want a higher tax value for your home, the best possible option is usually glass front doors or steel front doors, depending on which area you are living in. Glass is beautiful and adds to the aesthetic and appeal of your home, so it seems to be worth more. This too may sound odd, but the steel front door can look very inviting and provides so much more security for your belongings and family.

Questions And Answers

https://www.doors.com/front-doors/external-front-doors

What material should I consider for a front door?

For home use, the most popular choices are wood, steel and fiberglass. Glass sidelights and transoms can be added for additional style and curb appeal.

What makes a door energy-efficient?

Fiberglass, wood and steel with polyurethane foam core are among the most energy-efficient door materials. A tighter fit and improved weather-stripping that reduces air leakage around the edges is a must. When there are glass panes, double- or triple-paned glass is used to reduce heat flow.

Is fiberglass a good choice for a front door?

Fiberglass doors are low maintenance and can mimic the look and grain of wood, can be painted, and are more durable. They are especially suited for climates with high humidity and more extreme temperatures. They’re also considered to be the most energy-efficient. But, they can be expensive, are prone to damage and breakage in extreme cold, and may need periodic re-sealing. Basic to high-end fiberglass doors can range from $250 to $2,000.

What’s good and bad about steel front doors?

A high-quality steel door provides a thick layer of protection from the elements and intruders. They’re also more affordable than fiberglass and a similar quality wood door. Today, there are more design options, colors and styles than in years past. But since steel is more absorbent of cold and heat than other materials, they can be hot or cold to the touch. They are also more susceptible to dents and scratches and can rust without proper maintenance. The doors themselves range from $150 t0 $500.

What about wood front doors?

For classic looks and authenticity, wood has the look and feel of quality and warmth. Popular choices are oak, mahogany, walnut and fir. Whether they’re stained or painted, wood doors have a natural beauty and can be repaired easily if scratched by sanding it down and re-finishing. They can require re-staining and re-painting and because wood can rot or warp, they should be in a protected area. Solid wood doors can be expensive, from $500 to $3,000 or more. Engineered wood doors are more economically priced, generally between $200 and $500.

What color should you paint an external front door?

Take into consideration the style of your home. Many traditional styles incorporate black, navy, dark green or dark red doors, while contemporary house doors may boast bolder eye-popping colors. You could go with brighter colors from nature for a cottage or farmhouse style. Also keep in mind the exterior colors on your house and trim, which should have a bearing on your door color.

Are there standard sizes for exterior front doors?

Since there is so much variety in home design, doors can come in a number of different sizes. The typical front door size is 36 inches wide by 80 inches tall and is almost 2 inches thick. Some doors can be as narrow as 30 inches and as tall as 96 inches. Plus, some homes have double entry doors, making the doorway twice as wide.

When sunlight shines into your living room, kitchen, or entryway on a nice warm day it can produce a beautiful sight. Your pet loves to just lay there in the sunlight and watch the outside action or take a snooze. The sunlight shining through can also be uplifting and energizing. This is especially true for those who may spend more time than average in their home, because it really allows the outside beauty to find its way in. Choosing a full glass door will allow you to enjoy this to its fullest extent. You’ll have a wider view of who is ringing your doorbell. It also allows you to connect with the outdoors without having to worry about things like insects or wind. However, there are considerations that should be taken before purchasing a door with glass such as privacy, the safety of the area around you and even the style of the glass door that you will choose. A beautiful new front door that has a full pane of glass could be an invitation to would-be intruders, but you’ll use a double pane glass panel made of tempered glass that is very difficult to break, but still looks great. read more
