Installing a New Entry Door

Published on 19 July 2013 by in Home Repair Projects


Installing a new door to your home will not only enhance the look from the inside and out but will also benefit you in the long run. Entry doors can be an eyesore when they start to deteriorate. They can also waste a lot of energy in cooling or heating your home when the glass loses its seal and/or the weatherstrip wears out. Ultimately, a deteriorated door can lead to water damage under the door resulting in more extensive repairs. A newer design door that offers Low-E glass and tighter weatherstrip will provide energy savings and enhance the look of your home. The lower part of the jamb in newer design doors are also made from a rot proof material, thus ensuring the bottom of the jamb is less prone to wood rot.
