    Why Replace Your Home's Doors?

    Door replacement for your home is an important investment in your home's value and level of comfort.

    Almost all exterior doors experience normal wear and tear from daily use and exposure to weather. Exterior door replacement can improve your home's curb appeal and energy efficiency, significantly lowering your energy bills. You may also want an exterior door replacement in order to improve your home's security with updated hardware and a sturdier front door. If your exterior door is starting to warp or rot, or allow drafts into your home, or if you seek a more secure home, it might be time for an exterior door replacement.

    Interior door replacement can greatly enhance your home's interior design and improve its privacy, creating a quieter, more peaceful atmosphere. If you would like to upgrade your home's interior, you may want to consider interior replacement doors.

    Exterior Door Replacement Options

    You might consider upgrading your entry door with decorative glass accents, such as sidelights or transoms. Additionally, you might try refreshing your front entry door with a splash of color, or with decorative hardware that matches your home's interior hardware.

    Regarding the material for your exterior replacement doors, consider the following options:

    Wood: Wood exterior doors are classic and beautiful. However, in harsh or humid climates, wood doors can be highly susceptible to warping and rot from too much exposure to sunlight or moisture. If your heart is set on a wood door replacement, consider exterior overhangs for your replacement doors to protect them from the elements.

    Steel: Steel is durable, strong, and affordable. A polyurethane core boosts insulation, helping a steel exterior door act as a thermal barrier.

    Fiberglass: Fiberglass is almost always a smart choice for your exterior door replacement. This newer material makes for a high-performance door. It's virtually maintenance-free and resistant to denting, warping, and rot. Fiberglass can also mimic wood or be finished with various colors and stains. This material will also cost less than wood replacement doors.

    Interior Door Replacement Options

    Interior doors can change the entire feel of a room. Replacement doors for your interior can add natural light, open up a space, add charm and organization to a room, or bring together your interior design ideas. Consider glass panels or mirrors to create a more open, light-filled space. Or, try barn doors to add a unique rustic charm to your interior.

    Additionally, there are a few basic materials available for interior replacement doors:

    Hollow-core: Hollow-core door replacement will be cheap. This material is thin and flimsy, but it can be a good choice if you need a lot of cheap doors for spaces such as closets and laundry rooms where soundproofing isn't a priority.

    Solid-core: In terms of durability, cost, and soundproofing, solid-core doors are a happy medium between hollow-core and solid wood. Solid-core doors are more resistant to normal wear than hollow-core and will provide moderate soundproofing for much less money than solid wood doors.

    Solid wood: Though expensive, solid wood is also a high-quality material for an interior door replacement. It's sturdy and durable, and is also one of the best door options for blocking sounds between rooms.
