When it’s time to make improvements
to your home you always want to make sure you’re
making the best investment possible so you get
the best return from that investment. While there’s undoubtedly an endless list of to-dos around the house, one that continues to top a
variety of lists is replacement entry doors.
According to the National Association of Realtors® and Remodeling magazine’s 2015 Cost vs.
fiberglass replacement entry doors have the ability to recoup
more than 72 percent of their cost upon resale, with steel entry doors getting back more than 100 percent of the cost upon resale of the home.
Surprised? You shouldn’t be when you
think about it. Entry doors have a very important
role when it comes to the curb appeal of your home. Not only that, but they also
help shape the essence of your home for your family, as well
as any guests you have.
While you may not be getting ready
to buy or sell a home, making these upgrades doesn’t
merely help resale value; they can be the addition
to your home that ties everything together or adds a nice
focal point. No matter if it’s steel, wood or fiberglass, replacement entry
doors are a worthwhile investment in your home.
Of course, newer replacement entry doors also mean that you get
to utilize the improvements
made in their creation as well. As with most products
and industries, time has brought about improved ways of manufacturing
things, even replacement entry doors.
New techniques and approaches mean that you may
potentially end up with reduced
energy costs due to better fit and tighter seals of the doors
being made today. They also help keep the
Santa Fe weather at bay when temperatures
reach their highest and lowest points through the year.
While it may not seem like an obvious choice when you decide you want to improve
your home, replacement entry doors may be the ideal
solution. Whether your reasoning is the return on
investment or you merely want to draw more eyes to your
home’s beauty, it’s worth considering when the time is right. Come
