Cost vs. Value: Entry Doors

If you are considering new entry doors for your home, this is a wise choice – not only in terms of curb appeal but property value as well. A warm, bright and inviting entryway sets the whole tone for your home and landscape.

According to Remodeling magazine, the job cost of installing a new steel entry door in 2020 is $1,881, the resale value is $1,294 and the cost recouped is 68.8 percent.

Let’s expand that to include a new stone veneer façade to further improve your entry way.

As you can see, the job cost of installing this in 2020 is $9,357, the resale value is $8,943 and the cost recouped is 95.6 percent.

It becomes clear that improving the front entry area to your home can come with great benefits, improving your property value greatly. In fact, some estimates say the curb appeal that results from a new front door can add as much as $24,000 to your home’s value.

Benefits of a New Front Door

The front door acts as the focal point of your home, adding or detracting curb appeal and shaping guests’ first impressions.

An entry door has to be tough enough to withstand the harsh New England weather, from wind and rain to snow and scorching sun. It also has to be strong enough to prevent the entry of intruders. Most importantly, it has to be attractive enough to boost your curb appeal and make you happy every time you walk through it. This is a lot to expect from an entry door!

If you have an older front door, one that has been exposed to the elements for many years or decades, it’s probably started to warp, rot, crack, or chip or difficult to shut properly.

Whether this describes your front door or you just want to trade a solid door for one with a custom design or glass panels that allow for more light, you’ll find plenty of options available on the market that will improve your house and return high on the investment when it’s time to sell.
