Many homeowners don’t give much thought to exterior doors, but the fact is they can greatly enhance the beauty and appeal of your home.

Before you decide to replace your entry or patio door, be sure to give it careful thought. As a Greater Toronto homeowner who has reached a level in life which allows you to be a bit more selective, you don’t want to make a decision too hastily, as it could potentially ruin the aesthetic appeal of your home.

Think of your exterior doors as the “jewelry” or accents that bring the look of your home together. Your doors should perfectly complement the color, texture and overall design of your home, adding to curb appeal and potential saleability, should you ever decide to put your home on the market. While it may seem like a little thing, the wrong doors can actually decrease the value of your home in the eyes of potential buyers.

Here are a few things to consider before replacing your exterior doors: 

  • Could the appearance of your home be improved? Your existing doors may actually detract from your home’s potential beauty. Quality craftsmanship and attention to detail can make all the difference in the appearance of your doors – which are a pathway into your home, something guests notice.
  • Sturdiness and durability offers peace of mind. Beauty and design are certainly key factors in choosing exterior doors, but sturdiness and quality are just as important. A solidly crafted door protects your home and family from potential break-ins, and holds up for years under the worst weather conditions.
  • Consider what type of door would be a good “fit” architecturally for your home.
  • Should you do it yourself? While you can replace a door if you have the skills, why spend your leisure time doing physical labor? Professional installers ensure that your door is properly installed with a tight fit, even disposing of your old door and providing complete clean up on completion of the job.

Perhaps you have a picture-perfect lakefront view, a fabulous backyard pool area or a lusciously appointed garden you want to highlight when you have friends or guests over.  There is no better way to make a great impression and show off your impeccable taste than with exterior doors that are of the highest possible quality, carefully crafted to enhance your home’s distinctive beauty!
