When it’s time to make improvements
to your home you always want to ensure you’re
making the best investment possible so you get
the most return from that investment. While there’s probably an endless list of things that
need done around the house, one that continues to top a
variety of lists is replacement entry doors.
According to the National Association of Realtors® and Remodeling magazine’s 2015 Cost vs.
fiberglass replacement entry doors have the ability to recoup
more than 72 percent of their cost once
you sell your home, with steel entry doors getting back more than 100 percent of the cost upon resale of the home.
Surprised? You shouldn’t be when you
think about it. Entry doors have a very important
role when it comes to the curb appeal of your home. Not only that, but they also
help form the essence of your home for your family, as well
as any guests you have.
While you may not be prepping
to buy or sell a home, making these updates doesn’t
just help resale value; they can be the piece of your home that unifies
everything or adds a great
focal point. No matter if it’s steel, wood or fiberglass, replacement entry
doors are a great investment in your home.
Of course, newer replacement entry doors also mean that you get
to utilize the advancements
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 can
possibly end up with lower
energy costs due to better fit and tighter seals of doors created now. They also help keep the
Springfield climate at bay when temperatures
reach their highest and lowest points during the year.
While it may not seem like an obvious choice when you decide you want to update
your home, replacement entry doors may be the best
solution. Whether your reasoning is the return on
investment or you simply want to draw more eyes to your
home’s beauty, it’s worth considering when the time is right. Stop
