Choosing the wood

One of the benefits of hardwood front doors with glass is that they do not require as much maintenance as one would expect. While wooden doors are known for their overall ease of upkeep because they do very well at adapting to natural wear and tear, it is important to pick the right wood for your region. If you live in a humid climate, it is crucial that you choose a wood that naturally resists moisture. The two best wood options for humid climates are oak and mahogany. An added measure to prevent unnecessary weathering is to coat your wooden door with a polyurethane sealant. Be sure to apply the sealant before you install your door so you are able to get all of the door’s edges and corners. If you apply sealant, upkeep will simply require a re-application of the sealant every few years.

Forget Faux Wood

Hardwood doors are expensive. This is not necessarily a negative as real wooden doors are sturdier and provide better insulation than cheaper doors made of other materials. However, if you happen to stumble upon a wooden door that does not come with a high price-tag, be wary. Real wooden doors are expensive, but they are expensive for a reason. Because real wood is dense and heavy, the door protects the home from intruders and the elements very well. Real wood, while pricey, will also save a homeowner money over time due to its great insulation properties. Additionally, real wood, with proper upkeep, maintains its gorgeous appearance over time; whereas faux wood wears down and cracks.

Glass choice matters

Once you have decided on the kind of wood you’d like your door to be made out of, you need to decide on the glass that you would like installed in your door. If you have privacy concerns, for example, consider frosted or stained glass to keep people from looking into your home. To increase security measures, be sure that the glass is double or triple-paned so it does not break easily. Further, consider the location of the glass in your hardwood door. If you want your door to be as secure as possible, for example, find a door with glass that is not situated within arm’s reach of the interior lock.

Better Curb Appeal

If you are looking at your door as the homeowner, you might be happy with what you see, but what about if you are preparing to sell your home, or if that nosy neighbor says something about how bad it now looks? When you are upgrading the front door on your home, you are choosing to change the curb appeal of your home. This is very important because it changes the way your home looks and feels to you, your friends and family, and to people who drive by as well. It is great if you could choose a front door that brings about better curb appeal.

With the hardwood front doors with glass, this is an option that brings beauty, class and a comforting appeal to your home.

Higher Home Value

Do you think about the value of your home a lot? Well, if you have ever considered selling your home, this is something that should be on your mind. If you want to sell your home for the highest price, you need to increase your home’s value. By choosing hardwood front doors with glass, your home’s value will most likely go up. Having a newer door, or even one that keeps its great appearance longer, will show prospective buyers that you value your home and have worked hard to maintain how good it looks.

Another reason to think about your home’s value is to feel greater about the home you are living in. You may want to pass on a great home to your children because this is where you chose to invest your hard-earned money and give them the best inheritance you could. Additionally, the home will provide a high return on your investment which most likely outpaces the current level of interest earned on savings which means your money has grown more quickly. If this is the case, choosing hardwood front doors with glass is what you may need to do.
