All About Home Front Doors for Sale

When it comes to home front doors for sale, you have a dizzying array of options. From materials to front door hardware to finishes, it's easy to get overwhelmed. When you begin your search for your new home front door, it's simplest to start by deciding what material you'd like. The basic categories of front door materials are:

  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Fiberglass

Once you choose your material, you can narrow your choices down even further by considering the finishes you want. But how do you make that first choice, deciding what material to pick?

You may not need to decide, because you already have a choice in mind. However, if you're still on the fence, a good first step is considering how much maintenance you are willing and able to do. Once you've figured that out, you can match it with a material.

Weather or Not

Before you can decide how much maintenance you're willing to do, you should think about the climate in which you live. Your home front door is, after all, constantly exposed to the elements, so if those elements are particularly harsh, it might have an effect on your door. For example, do you live in an area that gets a lot of rain or snow?

Both can have negative effects on your front door, depending on what material you choose. If you live in a climate that's just the opposite—somewhere where it's always sunny and hot—then that can still affect your door. Sun can fade finishes and excess moisture can cause doors to rot or warp. You should choose the best door material for your climate, unless you're willing to make repairs and/or replace the door if it becomes non-functional.

Secure the Premises

Another consideration you might have when choosing a new home front door for sale is home security. We might all have different ideas about what design elements look good or how we want to landscape our yards, but we can all agree that feeling safe in our homes is a priority. When it comes to how security can affect your door choices, the truth is that all door materials are relatively safe, but some are safer than others.

It all depends on your community and your comfort level. So, for example, if you live in an area with a higher crime rate, you might feel more comfortable behind a metal or fiberglass door. That doesn't mean that wood isn't safe, just that some homeowners might find it not as secure as the other options.

Finishing the Job

Another way to choose your home front door is by deciding what kind of finish you want. All doors can be painted or finished, but if you want a wood look, for instance, your options are more limited than if you just want a certain color. Fiberglass doors can be finished to look like wood and some even fool experts.

However, it’s difficult to make a metal front door look like an authentic wood door. Most people who choose metal doors, however, are picking them for security or for the metal door look, so it ends up largely being inconsequential. Overall, you should base your finish on your taste, as you’re the one who will be living with your choice.

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.

Solid Front Doors

When it comes to buying a front door, security is often at the forefront of your mind. Since the door serves as a physical barrier between the interior of your home and the outside, it only makes sense that you want something durable, making solid front doors an ideal option. Solid front doors don’t have the structural shortcomings of their hollow core brethren, which typically have a honeycomb-style cardboard interior. Instead, the internal material is denser and studier, making it harder to break through. Typically, solid front doors are constructed of wood or fiberglass/composite. Wooden solid front doors are either made solely out of pieces of wood that are precisely fit together or from a single piece of wood, though the latter option is significantly less common in today’s marketplace. Since fiberglass/composite is a moldable material, it is generally a single piece when complete. read more
