How to Choose an Exterior Door

You may remember when I posted that a homeowner in our area may recoup 111%  of the cost of an exterior door. It is the only item I know of that recoups a home owner more than the actual cost… there may be a tax credit too.   It is by far the best investment  if you are looking for ways to increase your property value.  An exterior door is the foundation of the home’s first impression.  When I was door shopping a few years ago, I choose a beautiful wood grain fiber glass.  We stained the exterior and painted the interior and I love it.   Here is an article for you to read if you are considering replacing your own front door.  Enjoy the article!

Replacing your front door can pay for itself or even turn a profit by increasing your home’s value, according to Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report.

What’s more, if you choose an energy-efficient exterior door, you may qualify for a tax credit that can offset 30% of the purchase price as well as trim up to 10% off your energy bills. With utility bills averaging $2,200 annually, that’s a savings of as much as $220.

But how do you know which door is right for you? Make your decision by comparing the three main materials available for exterior doors: steel, fiberglass, and wood.

Thanks for stopping by and happy hump day to you all!
