Increase The Value Of Your Home With Door Replacement

A simple door replacement can improve the look of your house while increasing energy efficiency and driving up the value on your home.

Replacing the exterior doors on your home creates a different ambiance for potential buyers. When it comes to door replacement, you have a variety of choices. If replacing the doors on your house is the next home improvement project on your list, here’s a little information to get you started.

Front Door Replacement

Potential home buyers get an immediate feel and sense of home as they enter your front door. A  very basic steel front door costs about $100, but for another couple hundred dollars you can get a door with a lot more character that will improve your home’s curb appeal, increasing the value of your home and making it easier to sell when that time comes.

Sliding Door Replacement

Vinyl and aluminum gliding patio doors are the least expensive sliding door options available. This option is best for a small starter home with a small price point, but keep in mind the lower quality look and feel, the expansion from the summer heat, and the tendency to stop working properly after only a few years. Higher quality gliding patio doors have better insulation properties, look better, and for operate smoothly for as long as you own the house.

Garage Door Replacement

Installing a new garage door yields about 84 percent in resale value, according to Remodeling magazine. Although a certain construction material can raise the price of a garage door, it may last far longer than a door made with inexpensive material.

Don’t be fooled by seemingly low shelf prices on doors. Make sure that your total door cost includes energy-efficient glass packages, hardware, installation, and warranty upgrades.
