When it comes time to make improvements
to your home you always want to ensure you’re
making the smartest investment possible so you get
the most return from that investment. While there’s more
than likely an endless list of things to do around the house, one that continues to top numerous lists is replacement entry doors.
According to the National Association of Realtors® and Remodeling magazine’s 2015 Cost vs.
fiberglass replacement entry doors may recoup
more than 72 percent of their cost when you sell your home, with steel entry doors bringing more than 100 percent of the cost upon resale of the home.
Shocked? You shouldn’t be when you
think about it. Entry doors serve a huge
role when it comes to the curb appeal of your home. Not only that, but they also
help shape the essence of your home for your family, as well
as the guests you have.
While you may not be prepping
to buy or sell a home, making these improvements doesn’t
only help resale value; they can be the piece of your home that brings everything together or adds a unique
focal point. No matter if it’s steel, wood or fiberglass, replacement entry
doors are a worthy investment in your home.
Of course, newer replacement entry doors also mean that you have the chance to utilize the improvements
made in their creation as well. As with most products
and industries, time has brought about better ways of creating
things, even replacement entry doors.
New techniques and approaches mean that you may
potentially see lower
energy costs due to better fit and tighter seals of the doors
being made today. They also help keep the
Grand Rapids climate at bay when temperatures
reach their highest and lowest points throughout the year.
While it may not seem like the
apparent choice when you decide you want to upgrade
your home, replacement entry doors may be the best
choice. Whether your reasoning is the return on
investment or you just want to draw more eyes to your
home’s beauty, it’s worth considering when the time is right. Come
