When it’s time to make upgrades
to your home you always want to ensure you’re
making the best investment possible so you get
the greatest return from that investment. While there’s undoubtedly an endless list of to-dos 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 can recoup
more than 72 percent of their cost once
you sell your home, with steel entry doors reeling
in more than 100 percent of the cost upon resale of the home.
Surprised? You shouldn’t be when you
think about it. Entry doors serve a very important
role when it comes to the curb appeal of your home. Not only that, but they also
help create the essence of your home for your family, as well
as all of your guests.
While you may not be preparing
to buy or sell a home, making these updates doesn’t
only help resale value; they can be the part of your home that unifies
everything or adds a unique
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 improvements
made in their creation as well. As with the majority of products
and industries, time has brought about improved ways of creating
things, even replacement entry doors.
New techniques and approaches mean that you can
realistically have decreased
energy costs due to better fit and tighter seals of today’s doors. They also help keep the
Des Moines 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 could be the best
answer. 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. Stop
