Top Three Shopping TipsHigh Priced Front Doors

At first glance, many homeowners searching for the perfect front door may shy away from a high price tag. While this is understandable, it could be a mistake for an array of reasons. You should take into account that high-priced front doors tend to be high-priced for a reason. Unlike other household items that may be high-priced solely because they have a brand name attached, high-priced front doors cost more money because they are of a higher quality than cheap doors.

When shopping for a new front door, determining which high-priced front door to ultimately go with can be overwhelming and confusing. Understandably, you want to get the most bang for your buck. By following these three shopping tips, you can be sure that you get the most out of the high-priced door that you ultimately decide to choose.

Easy Upkeep Comes At a Cost

High-priced front doors usually come in three different materials: fiberglass, steel, or wood. While upkeep does not differ much if you go with one of these options, it is still something that you should consider. Fiberglass doors are dent-resistant and extremely durable. This equates to less overall upkeep and maintenance. Steel doors require that you occasionally clean them up with a metal brush; aside from the occasional brushing, however, steel doors are relatively low-maintenance. Wooden doors are also known for their overall ease of upkeep because they do very well at adapting to natural wear and tear. While these materials are high-priced, they will save you money over time and they also make for great investments.

Be Wary of Faux Wood

If you stumble upon a “wooden” door that is much more reasonably priced than other wooden doors, you should proceed with caution. Doors that are made with real, high-quality wood are expensive for a reason. They are heavy and strong; this helps protect the home, not just from intruders, but from the natural elements as well. Real wooden doors save homeowners money over time because they insulate the home incredibly well and keep hot or cold air out while also keeping your home’s air conditioning or generated heat inside. Additionally, real wood maintains its elegant appearance over time versus faux wood that does not hold upas well to wear and tear.

Safety Comes First

The best and most popular argument for a high-priced front door is the overall safety that high-priced front doors provide. Of course aesthetics are important when choosing a front door for your home; however, aesthetics should never ever come before safety. For example, if a cheaply made door has glass inserts, those glass inserts will likely be much easier to break than reinforced glass inserts that are built into a high-priced front door. A well-built front door with high-quality, durable, and long-lasting materials will be high-priced, but it will also be much safer than its cheaper counterparts. Fortunately, most high-priced front doors do not need to sacrifice aesthetics for safety and are usually elegant and very aesthetically pleasing.

Materials

Wooden doors are some of the most expensive front entrance doors. Wood is more natural than other materials, but with proper care, these doors can last a lifetime. Mahogany doors are among the highest priced wooden front doors because of their beautiful wood grain and sturdiness. The wood is very hard and will not crack or splinter easily. Of course, oak doors aren’t as high priced but will be able to provide the strength and security you want on your front door.

Wrought iron doors are another higher priced option. Usually the wrought iron sits in front of glass, and these doors are practically impenetrable and make it difficult for any possible home invaders. Wrought iron doors give your home a lot of personality while also being safe and timeless. Both of these materials can make your home’s entrance feel very luxurious, and they can even be used together. While steel doors are not as costly and could be safe, they also look industrial giving your home the appearance of being a business rather than the warm and relaxing home you’ve worked hard to create. Don’t let this first impression damped the visit with friends by scrimping on the door.

Customization

Customizing your front door definitely increases both its elegance and price. There are so many ways to customize your front door to make it perfect for your style and your home. If you wanted to, you could customize the size and purchase an extra wide door to create a statement piece and to make your home more modern. You also might want to use the more expensive wood construction and have a very specific color of stain applied to it that is mixed just for you. Consider having the street number applied to the wood door through a unique process such as burning, carving, or embossing.

Of course, you can also customize your door by adding custom glass inserts. This can make your home feel more mature and modern and the variations in glass will certainly allow you to create a unique look. Wrought iron is a great material because it is always custom made, so you know that you are purchasing a unique piece for your home. You might even be able to have your family name created from iron and applied to its middle.

Accessories

When it comes to luxury doors, hardware can make or break the door’s style. If you are interested in a minimal or more modern door, you might decide you want to use minimal hardware with clean lines. Of course, if you are going for a more traditional look, you might want to consider a unique door knob or even a custom knocker. It is also possible to purchase antique door knobs for Victorian style homes and other older homes, making the entrance feel much more authentic. There are many types such as hammered steel, brushed nickel, and so many more to look at.

Hardware is important for the design of any door, so if you purchase an expensive door, be sure to spend the necessary money for the best hardware that fits your style. Another addition to your front entrance are sidelites, which have the ability to bring light into the home and add balance to the entrance. These are a great option for extra-large custom doors, since they help to provide balance. The extra light helps you to see better when you approach the door inside and don’t have to turn on the light.
