Entry doors are the first thing that people see when they walk into your home, and they’re also a key feature of your property’s curb appeal. If you live in a Murray, Utah, suburb neighborhood and want to update your property’s style with new doors, Discount Doors offers high-quality, custom options.
The best fiberglass entry doors convincingly mimic the look, feel and thunk of wood. They’re also energy-efficient, easy to maintain and offer a long menu of glass, molding, hardware and color options to complement most house styles.
Unlike steel, they don’t rust or dent. And they’re far more weather-resistant than wood, surviving extreme cold and damp without warping or swelling. For added security, choose a door with a built-in steel plate in the core or add a wrought iron screen or speakeasy-style window grille to match the architecture of your home.
If you opt for a smooth-skinned fiberglass door, consider choosing one factory finished in your choice of color. Then you’ll only need a few wipe-downs to keep it looking new. You can also choose a prehung version with a factory-installed three-point locking system, behind-the-jam metal brackets and a solid core. In addition, some models are fire-rated and pass Dade County’s stringent impact tests for hurricane resistance.
When installed correctly, a new front door can enhance your home’s curb appeal and provide beauty, security and energy efficiency. An old front door, however, can detract from your home’s value and make it look unkempt and uncared for.
Steel entry doors are more often seen in commercial buildings but they also offer a number of remarkable benefits to residential homes, including strength and fire resistance. Despite their name, they are not solid steel; rather they have a polyurethane or polystyrene core with a steel skin.
Because they are more durable, steel doors can resist damage that would otherwise break fiberglass or wood doors. They are also less likely to scratch than some other door materials, although they may be susceptible to metal-on-metal scratches. They can also be sanded down and repainted to eliminate any scratches that do occur. Many models are also available in a variety of styles and finishes to create the perfect entrance for your home.
Solid wood exterior doors are a timeless choice for any home. Their beauty complements any architectural style and they are available in a wide array of designs to fit your preferences. They are resistant to being kicked in and provide peace of mind that your home is secure at all times — especially when you’re away. Wood is also an excellent insulator, reducing your home’s energy usage and your power bills in both summer and winter. This makes replacing your front door one of the best investments you can make for your home. It improves your home’s security, curb appeal and value.
A front door has a big impact on your home’s kerb appeal and can greatly increase the value of your property. It’s also a key security element of the house. Old, unsightly doors can detract from the appearance and safety of your property and could be an invitation to intruders.
A composite front door is a great alternative to timber and uPVC as it won’t weather, fade or require constant maintenance. Each composite door is spray painted in the colour of your choice during manufacture using a hard-wearing acrylic paint and baked with infrared – this process infuses the colour into the GRP skin to prevent peeling or chipping.
A quality composite door will last 35 years plus if treated properly. It is resistant to humidity and moisture so it won’t swell in the same way as wood. It is designed to withstand knocks, bumps and dings so you won’t need to repaint it. The internal frame is a sturdy 70mm uPVC so it is strong and secure.
