If you’re looking for a simple yet impactful upgrade to make to your home, you might consider upgrading your entrance doors with custom wood doors in Glenwood Springs, CO. While there are a variety of materials you can choose from, we strongly believe wood to be not just the most traditional, but also the most stately and down-home option available.
Here are just a few examples of some of the reasons why a custom wood door is the way to go.
Increase the value of your home
Entry door replacement gives you an outstanding return on investment, even though it’s a relatively small project. You can recover 80 percent or more of the cost of the project in terms of the value it adds to your home.
A solid, attractive wood door will significantly increase the curb appeal of your home, which means the upgrade will make your home more attractive to people who might be interested in purchasing it. Aesthetic value is just one of the factors that influences overall home value.
Because solid wood doors make excellent insulators as well, installing a custom wood door at your entryway could help you save money on your monthly utilities, which could result in you recouping the costs of the project over time.
Protection and insulation
Solid wood is, of course, an extremely strong and durable material. Intruders would have a very hard time breaking it down or kicking it in. This is just one extra way to add to the security of your home, whether you’re at home or away.
There are also several ways in which, as we briefly mentioned above, solid wood doors can help insulate your home. Wood itself is a strong insulating material, meaning you can cut down on the amount of energy you need to expend on your HVAC to keep your home at the proper temperature in both the summer and the winter. This will lead to long-term savings on your energy bills.
The insulating properties of wood don’t just affect your ability to maintain the interior air temperature. It also results in some natural sound-dampening qualities. With wood, you can both literally and figuratively “shut the door” on the noise of the outside world, helping you to better enjoy some peace and quiet while you’re spending time at home.
You can find wooden entry doors in a wide variety of shapes, styles, finishes and sizes. You can choose from many different kinds of wood, some of the most common being oak, mahogany and cherry, but the options are nearly limitless. Plus, in terms of styles, you can easily select options that will match the architectural style of your home—there’s no home where wood as a material will appear out of place at the front door. Finally, with the finish, you have the option of painting the front door or using stains to highlight the wood’s natural beauty.
