Is a New Front Door a Good Investment?

When you’re building or renovating a home, projects can add up quickly. It’s important to know that each investment will be worth your time and money for years to come. Replacing your door can improve your home’s curb appeal, value, security, and energy efficiency. Inspect your entryway for common signs of damage today, and keep reading to find out how to measure for a replacement and what to look out for when choosing your new door.

Maximize your curb appeal and ROI

When planning a renovation or building a new home, it’s helpful to consider the return on investment (ROI). The ROI refers to the home value that is added compared to the cost of each improvement. Completing projects with a high ROI will help you get back as much investment as possible when you sell. According to Remodeling Magazine, investing in a new entry door has an average ROI of 74.9%. Each year, the Magazine reports the ROI of common remodeling projects. Front doors have topped the list for many years.

As an important focal point for visitors, neighbors and potential homebuyers, your front door is a crucial part of your home’s curb appeal and perceived value. In addition to ROI and curb appeal, investing in a quality entry door will provide protection and energy efficiency. A new front door is one of the most affordable and important investments to make in your home since it will provide value to your family for years to come.

Invest in your home security

Since the front door is one of the most common entry points for intruders, it’s important to keep it secure. In many homes, the front door is a weak spot. If this exterior door is overlooked and not maintained throughout the years, your front door will likely experience wear and tear. Warping is a common defect that can cause the deadbolt to fit incorrectly. Without the full protection of a deadbolt, your door can easily be forced open without much effort.

When to replace your front door

Many homeowners inherited their front door when they purchased their home, and it may or may not reflect their personal style. As time goes by, a homeowner may take the door for granted instead of evaluating it regularly for maintenance or repairs.

There are some clear signs when it’s time to invest in a new entry door:

  • Light peeking through
    Is there light coming in around the perimeter of your door, or even coming in through cracks in the door? If light is shining through, other things can get into your house as well. This can commonly include water, wind, dirt, insects, and rodents.
  • Hot or cold air coming in
    If you don’t see light coming in, but you feel a draft, there may be a gap around your door framing or damaged weather stripping. Weather stripping should be replaced regularly to ensure a good seal. However, if you’re feeling drafts every year, it’s probably well past time to replace your front door.
  • Heavy dents
    On a well-used door, wear and tear are normal. However, some types of damage go beyond aesthetics. Large dents can indicate compromised structural integrity, especially near the door’s perimeter.
  • Hard to open or close
    If you’re often struggling to open or close your front door, this indicates that your door has expanded, contracted or even warped. While your door no longer fits properly in the door jamb, the seal is compromised and allows air, water, insects and other pollutants into your home.
  • Lock is not working properly
    If your door doesn’t lock properly, it’s an obvious security issue. Maintenance your lock immediately if possible. If you need to replace your entire lock system to fix the problem, consider this opportunity to install a new more secure door entirely.
  • Exterior rust
    Rust means that moisture has gotten inside your door frame and is likely causing rot. Many steel doors are not fully galvanized and will rust from the inside out, rendering them extremely unsound and easy to force entry.
  • Rotting, flaking, or softened wood
    If you see rotting or flaking near the bottom of the door jamb (the casing around the door), this is a sign of rotting which will need to be replaced. You may also notice that the wood is getting soft to the touch. This is another sign of rot that will require the door and jamb to be replaced.
  • Splitting and peeling
    If not maintained, wood and engineered wood doors can become cracked, warped, and weathered. This causes rot and attracts termites and other wood-destroying insects.
  • Increased energy bills
    Last but not least, consider investing in a new door if you suspect your current door may be leaking air and compromising your home’s energy efficiency. Leaks force your HVAC system to work harder to maintain temperatures, and older front doors lack energy performance innovations that are huge money savers during hot summers and cold winters.

How to measure

To start shopping, you’ll want to know what size door you’re looking for. If you’re replacing your door, measure your old door’s width, thickness, and height. Measure the thickness of the wall so that you’ll get the proper door jamb width. Also, note the door swing direction. Stand inside your home, and see which side the doorknob is on. If it’s on the right, you have a right-handed door, and if it’s on the left, it’s a left-handed door.

Historic or custom homes sometimes have non-standard-sized doors. Luckily, our DSA Dealers and Custom Design Team can custom-fit or modify our doors to fit a wide variety of homes and design preferences. When you purchase your new entry, it’s best to order your door as a pre-hung package with the weather stripping, threshold, jamb, and hardware included. This confirms that all the components are designed to work well together. At DSA, we test our pre-hung doors for infiltration and thermal efficiency to ensure each DSA homeowner gets an enduring entryway to enjoy for years to come.

Why You Should Choose a Wood Door

As you are probably aware, there are many different materials for front doors. You can choose a traditional wood door, or one constructed from steel, aluminum, fiberglass, or other materials. You can choose solid wood or engineered wood, which has a high-end wood veneer over a lower-grade wood core. At DSA Doors, we manufacture Master-Crafted solid wood doors. Drawing on centuries of tradition and decades of experience, we know that a solid wood door is one of the best investments a homeowner can make in their home.

Strength & Security

Safety is an important concern before moving into a new home or purchasing a front door. Solid wood doors are incredibly strong and resistant to break-in attempts. Averaging around 150 pounds, solid wood doors do not budge easily. Wood is so hearty that it’s difficult to even dent. It takes a lot more than a kick or shove to force open.
Your door also must be secure against weather and wind conditions. Depending on your location, you may even need an impact-rated, DP-50 or DP-70 door. DSA Doors are subjected to extreme testing conditions that simulate hurricane-force winds to ensure their safety and reliability.

Durable & Repairable

Damages to metal and veneered doors are not easily repairable, while solid wood doors can be sanded and refinished multiple times. In addition to their repairability, DSA Doors are constructed for maximum durability. Our proprietary 11-ply floating panel core and finger joint laminated rails protect against warping and splitting for years to come.

Customizable & One-of-a-Kind

Each wood door is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Wood is a warm natural material that will welcome each guest to your home for years to come. Since wood doors have been produced for centuries, there is a wide range of designs and options available to choose from. At DSA Doors, we have over 30 Standard Door collections to choose from. Our Custom Design Team can help you design your perfect door, from timber to panel design and custom glass. In addition to design options, wood doors can be re-stained when updating the style of your home, which is not available for almost any other material.

Sustainable & Energy-efficient

Sustainably sourced wood is one of the most environmentally friendly materials currently available because it is a natural carbon sink and is truly renewable. DSA Doors exclusively uses sustainably sourced timber, which is managed in an environmentally, socially and economically beneficial manner.
We also feature innovative door collections with CLPF construction, which replaces our solid hardwood cores with an energy-efficient foam core for the highest thermal performance. To further increase thermal efficiency, all our doors have a complimentary low-emissivity (Low E) double-coating on the glass, which minimizes the amount of heat and UV light that comes
through your glass without minimizing the visible light entering your home.

Protect your Door

In order to preserve your door for generations to come, there are two main factors to consider when purchasing a wood door.
The first is sun exposure. To limit your door’s sun exposure, a protective overhang is required for wood doors and suggested for all exterior doors. The overhang needs to extend at least half the distance from the base of the door to the bottom of the overhang. So, if your overhang is 10 feet from the base of your door, it needs to extend at least 5 feet in order to provide adequate protection. Manufacturers typically require a suitable overhang in warranty documentation. DSA’s Wynstellar Collection, which features high-performance acetylated Accoya wood, does not require an overhang and is a good choice for exterior doors subjected to harsh climates and conditions.
The second consideration to preserve your wood door is regular maintenance. One of the most important aspects of regular maintenance is keeping up with your door’s protective clear coat. If the clear coat degrades, your door’s stain and wood become vulnerable to the elements. Depending on your weather and overhang coverage, your door should be maintained at least once a year or whenever you feel the clear coat is wearing off. Simply clean your door, lightly sand, then apply another clear coat. You can apply 2-3 coats for maximum protection, letting each coat dry before applying another.
