When it comes time to make improvements
to your home you always want to ensure you’re
making the most intelligent 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 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 upon resale, 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 play a huge
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 any guests you have.
While you may not be preparing
to buy or sell a home, making these updates doesn’t
just help resale value; they can be the part 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 worthwhile investment in your home.
Of course, newer replacement entry doors also mean that you can utilize the improvements
made in their creation as well. As with many products
and industries, time has brought about improved ways of making
things, even replacement entry doors.
New techniques and approaches mean that you can
realistically see decreased
energy costs due to better fit and tighter seals of the doors
being made today. They also help keep the
Bloomington climate at bay when temperatures
reach their highest and lowest points through the year.
While it may not seem like the
apparent choice when you decide you want to upgrade
your home, replacement entry doors could be the best
solution. 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
