As we’ve noted in previous blogs, curb appeal is one of the most important aspects of your home. Whether you’re thinking about selling your home or you’re planning to stay put for the foreseeable future, it’s important to make sure that your home is in good condition. First impressions are everything, and the quality of your entry door is one of the first things that guests and potential home buyers alike will see when they pull up to your home.
It’s crucial to ensure that your entry door installation goes smoothly, as a shoddy door installation can make your home less energy-efficient and vulnerable to burglary. One of Blue Springs Siding and Windows’ most popular entry door choices is Therma-Tru fiberglass. Therma-Tru doors provide a brilliant combination of security and aesthetic appeal, and they’re also great for homeowners who are looking for a new door that’s cost-effective. Moreover, many of our customers are happy to learn that these doors are both ENERGY STAR® qualified and NFRC-certified. If you’re seeking to lower your monthly energy bill improve the curb appeal of your home, a Therma-Tru door might be the ideal option for your home.
If you’ve recently installed a new door, or if you’d like to protect your current door from the elements, installing a storm door is one of the best ways to ensure the longevity of your investment. Storm doors are available in a wide variety of materials and designs, but the majority of storm doors have a three features in common: a front layer, a back layer, and an interior layer of insulation. Many older doors can allow the air in your home to leak through small cracks and openings, which makes it harder for your HVAC system to maintain a stable temperature. This can lead to higher utility bills each month, and one reason that many homeowners choose to install storm doors on their homes is to protect against leaks.
Another reason many people decide to install storm doors on their homes is to protect an existing door from the elements. Wind, water, and ice will all degrade even the toughest of doors over time, but storm doors will protect and extend the life of your current door for years. If you enjoy letting sunlight into your home, but don’t want to risk letting bugs or anything from the surrounding environment inside, a storm door gives you everything you’re looking for. Many homeowners enjoy opening their storm doors during the spring and summer to allow natural light to fill their homes while staying secure. As we noted in the previous section, installing a new door will improve your home’s energy efficiency, and installing a new storm door will provide your home with an extra layer of insulation.
