Your Home's Centerpiece:
The Entry Door
by Jake Parker
When it comes to improving the look of a house, there is usually no single improvement that has the impact of replacing a staid, old front door with a beautiful new entry system. Given that a front door is typically the centerpiece of a home's appearance, that might not surprise you. However, did you know that a new entry door is also a great value that costs much less than most people realize?
The days of rust and ding prone steel doors with perhaps a bit of "decorative" clear glass are long behind us. Such doors add little to a home's appearance, yet require greater maintenance while providing lesser energy efficiency.
New fiberglass entry doors, on the other hand, offer a beauty and warmth that older doors can't match. While yielding almost nothing in terms of strength to steel, fiberglass doors are impervious to rust, decay, and denting. Without a metal skin, they don't transfer cold temperatures inside. Most importantly, though, fiberglass doors offer an array of finishes and decorative glass options that can make your home truly stand out.
But what is the cost of adding a new entry door that would provide those benefits? There are many options to consider, but as an example, you can have your old door removed, hauled away, and replaced with a gorgeous new wood grained fiberglass door with stunning Crystalline art glass for less than $1500, including taxes. Better yet, because of its improved energy efficiency, such a door qualifies for the Energy Tax Credit, which could drop the total cost of such a project by several hundred dollars more.
Thus, whether you're expecting to stay in your home for many years and want to enjoy the beauty and decreased energy and maintenance bills, or you're thinking of moving in the near future and want to dress up your home to increase its value and curb appeal, a new door is a great investment.
With an array of attractive options and experienced, professional installation, J & J has been a trusted source for providing new entry doors for decades. If you're interested in getting a honest, no-nonsense look at the options for your home without any cost or pressure, J & J is here for you.
