Great First Impressions With Wood Front Entry Doors

The front entry door is the first impression guests have of your home. If you’re not sure whether your front entry door is leaving the impression you want, ask yourself these questions: Does the door look dated or worn? Can you feel cold air seeping in around the edges in the winter or hot air in the summer? Aesthetically, do you like the door? Will it prevent intruders? When it’s time to replace your front entry door and install a new one, make sure it’s one that will leave a positive lasting impression.

Wood Entry Doors Built to Last

When you install a new front door you want one that will last a lifetime, or more, and one that will maintain its beauty throughout the years with minimal maintenance. According to the National Association of Home Builders a quality wood front entry door should last a minimum of 30 years, but will last much longer when an overhang is in place. Doors from Simpson Door Company maintain paint and finish longer than other doors, with less fading over time.

Energy Efficient Front Entry Doors

Poorly installed, aged or low-quality doors can lead to increased heating and cool costs due to air from the outside seeping in and client controlled air seeping out. If your entry door is losing you money due to increased energy costs, installing a new wood door will help. Homeowners see an average reduction in heating and cooling costs of up to ten percent, by replacing their front entry door.

Wood doors are resistant to heat, frost, corrosion, and pollution making them a great choice for any Chicago front entry door. Wood also is an excellent insulator due to its cellular makeup, which limits energy loss. Wood is 415 times more energy efficient than steel and 2,000 times more efficient than aluminum. Even constructing wood doors takes less energy to manufacture than other materials and wood helps remove pollutants from the air.
