Choose the right material

Front entrance doors for homes come in a few materials. The material you choose depends on the style of home you have, the look you’re going for, your budget, any security concerns, and even the local climate. For instance, wood front entry doors give your home a high-end look, but they come with a hefty price tag. They also require more maintenance than steel or fiberglass doors. Fiberglass doors mimic the look of wood, but at a lower cost than wood. They also resist wear and tear better than steel. Steel doors are relatively inexpensive and offer better security than fiberglass or wood. However, steel doors don’t weather as well as wood or fiberglass.

Is security a concern?

When choosing front entrance doors for your home, you may wonder if different door materials provide a more secure barrier to burglars and home invasions. As long as your front entrance door is not hollow-cored, the material has little effect on whether someone can kick the door in. The door lock assembly is the main reason a door can be difficult or easy to breach. Regardless of door material, any door will fail if your doorjamb splits near the lock’s strike plate. You can strengthen your front entrance doors by installing a 1-inch-long dead bolt with a reinforced metal strike box. Also, mount your door jamb with 3-inch-long mounting screws. These suggestions can increase your door’s resistance to invasion.

Increase your energy efficiency

Choosing an Energy Star qualified front door is important because it means the door has been independently tested for energy efficiency and is certified. Energy Star front doors generally fit tighter in their frames than other doors and include with more energy efficient cores. In addition, an energy-efficient front door with glass inserts usually has double- or triple-paned glass to reduce heat transfer. Just as importantly as choosing an Energy Star qualified front door is making sure the weather stripping between the door and the frame doesn’t allow air to leak in or out. You’re more likely to lose heating and cooling efficiency around the door rather than through the front door itself.
