Did you know that your exterior doors have a major impact on your home’s curb appeal, and therefore its resale value? What about the fact that a poorly fitted, uninsulated door could be losing your home a big percentage of the energy you use to heat and cool it?
While replacing the doors on your home isn’t the most glamorous home improvement job, it can have a major impact on the comfort, curb appeal and energy performance of your home.
Replacing the standard 36-inch wide front door on your home with a set of double doors is one of the hottest home improvement trends right now. This one change can dramatically increase your home’s curb appeal and resale value. The Simonton doors we sell are not only attractive and designed to give your home the appearance you had in mind, they are also foam-insulated to help increase your home’s energy efficiency as well. No more drafts coming from your doors even when they’re closed, and no more outdated appearance for your home’s exterior.

And if you have old patio or sliding glass doors in your home, you could be losing as much as 30% of the energy you use to heat and cool that room right through the doors. Replacing them with new vinyl or vinyl and wood patio doors will not only give you an attractive, maintenance free entryway, it will also save you approximately $7 for every dollar you spend on them in energy costs. That’s a significant savings over the course of the time you own your home.

If you want to introduce some more light into your life- you should consider French doors. These combination windows and doors create a sense of space as they flood rooms with sunlight. And new glass technologies mean that security and insulation concerns of the past are in many cases outdated.
- Brings natural light into rooms.
- Increases sense of space.
- Creates a visual connection between indoors and out, and between rooms.
- Requires floor space for opening.
- Provides minimal privacy.
- More expensive than sliding doors or basic, solid interior doors.
- More windows to clean.
