One of the first things people notice about your home is your front door. Whether they are stopping by for a visit, looking to purchase your home, or just passing by, your entry door gives people an “first impression” of your property.

Your entry door should reflect your personal tastes, while adding a certain beauty to the exterior of your home. On a more practical note, a good door also acts as a barrier between your home and the cold New England weather that is fast approaching.

During the coming fall and winter months, while your heating system works hard to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, your old and tired entry door could be working in opposition! Older doors can often be warped or cracked from years of everyday use. Or the core of an older door may not be as insulated as it should be. These deficiencies allow energy to escape from your home, leading to a heating system that must run more often and for longer periods. That can add up to an expensive heating bill every month.

Newer entry doors are designed to withstand years of abuse without warping or cracking, and feature an insulated core to prevent radiant cooling. Using advanced building materials and coatings, the right door effectively seals your heat inside and prevents the cold from seeping in, protecting your home from the freezing temperatures, wind and snow.

By replacing your existing entry door with a newer, more energy efficient door, you’ll be able to save on your energy bills all winter long. Plus, a new door is a great way to add a new face to the exterior of your home. You’ll be able to choose an updated design, a new color, and a finish that better reflects the person you are now, not the person who bought that door many years ago.

There is a wide selection of new entry doors from which to choose. But whichever style you choose be sure to turn to a professional contractor like Hi-Tech Windows for a proper door installation. Even the most advanced entry doors will not protect your home if improperly installed.
