Choosing The Right Front Door
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The exterior of homes provides great insight into its residents.

That being said, selecting an entry door that fits the rest of your home’s style and is aesthetically beautiful can do wonders to add value to the rest of the property. Choosing the right door or replacing one should come as a high value project for homeowners (as an investment), because not only can a front door add or subtract to a home’s curb appeal, but also safety and security of the ones living inside.

Following are some tips shared by Oridow, the largest UPVC door manufacturer in China that can be used when purchasing a door.

Determine Your Budget

This is the first step homeowners usually think of before making any purchase. When it comes to home improvement, it’s fairly easy for projects to go over budget. This is largely due to delays in starting the project or beginning it prior to determining all costs of the project.

Your front door, like all home improvement projects, is an investment therefore the budget should be determined after careful planning. Think about;

Estimated Useful Life

Upfront Costs versus Long-term Benefits

Energy Efficiency

Maintenance Requirements

Weather Protection and Performance

The Features Included

Hardware and Accessories

Pre-finishing Costs

Remodeling Costs

The Materials Used Matter

What material the door’s made of should be considered as this will directly affect the door’s performance, durability, maintenance and appearance. In addition, the material used will also determine the price which is why it’s important to keep on mind. Oridow uses highest quality UPVC materials to design doors and windows as well as aluminum and faux wood. See their product’s catalogue here.

Size of the Door Matters Too

Properly measure the entry-way of your home before purchasing the front door. At the standard, an exterior entry door will come up to 80 inches tall, 36 inches wide and almost 2 inches thick. What size door will fit on your home’s entryway depends on the structure of your home. You might need a double door or a single will be more than fine.

Keep Style of the Door in Mind

Of course, you’ll want to choose a front door that complements the rest of your home. Not only should this but the front door also be able to increase the curb appeal of your home. Traditional homeowners often go for the classic wood paneled doors or may even go for a front door that has decorative glass elements to it.

Every house and homeowner is different, therefore picking the front door that suits just right to you and your home is very important. Oridow understands that and knows homeowners want something different. Take a look at their UPVC French doors or their standard UPVC doors before making a decision.
