Buy the Perfect Front Door for Your Home: 5 Tips

Blue Front Entry Door
Ready to make a beautiful entrance? Windows Factory Outlet is standing by. Whether your home is new or you’re upgrading your current home, look to us for a high-quality front door at a welcoming price.

Exterior doors should be tough and handsome, making a great first impression on guests (and the market). Here are the key points to consider when selecting your new door.

1. Elegance

Wood sets the standard “look” for front doors. Yet steel and fiberglass can feature elegant wood-grain designs, and need much less work to keep them looking their best.

Handcrafted glass can create a beautiful first impression and a bright, welcoming entranceway, complimenting classic or contemporary homes.

2. Energy Efficiency and Resilience

Fiberglass or wood will stand up to storms and use. If wood is your choice, get enduring, furniture-grade veneers at least 1/16 inch thick.

Steel and fiberglass doors typically rate highest for insulation value, humidity protection, and easy care. With adjustable thresholds, they’ll stay weather-tight. (Most heat loss occurs around the thresholds, not through the door). Accompanying rails should include warp-resistant veneer.

3. Good Lock System

Battering ram tests for Consumer Reports proved there’s not much difference in strength among door materials. Be sure to choose a quality door lock.

4. Value for Money

Metal or fiberglass can offer you sound security and weather resistance—and great value, too. Steel is warp-resistant. And an inexpensive auto-body repair kit will take care of any scratches or dents. Many new wood doors resist the elements, yet modern fiberglass or steel models offer high security and value for money.

5. Convenient and Correct Installation

Exterior doors pre-hung in a frame, already drilled for knob and deadbolt, are today’s popular choice. Expert installation makes the perfect impression.

Choose from many styles at Window Factory Outlet. We have glass accents. Find Neo Deco, Oval Victorian, Chatham, and more! Our experts can help you choose the door that optimizes the beauty and value of your home. Plus, we’ll send you skilled carpenters who adhere to the highest installation standards.

The Importance of Energy-Saving Replacement Windows

Energy Saving Windows
Energy saving replacement windows conserve your finances and reduce the overall demand on energy resources. Standard windows in general, generate costs, and these costs accumulate each month. What may seem like a nominal sum today can add up to a significant amount in no time. According to House Logic, window replacement projects produce a $12,000 return on value. House Logic also cites the “Remodeling Impact Report,” a study that found an 80% financial return on project cost in estimated home value. Some of the features of an energy saving replacement window include; the Low – E factor, which is one of the most important reasons to purchase replacement windows. It is a reflective coating that blocks out harmful UV rays, keeping the heat out during the summer and inside the home during the winter; Gas Fills, like Argon, for example, add to the strength and effect of insulation and boosts the energy rating; and Spacers, assist the insulation effect and also prevents condensation in the glass.
