Exterior Door Replacement: 4 Mistakes You Need to Avoid

Your doors are an incredibly important part of your home. After all, since it’s one of the first things that people will see, your exterior door plays a big role in your home’s aesthetic appeal. Apart from that, it can also affect your home’s energy efficiency. To make the most of getting new doors, you have to make sure that you avoid a few door replacement mistakes.

These mistakes include:

Exterior Door Replacement

  1. Picking the Wrong Door Color 
    As stated before, your exterior doors can affect your home’s overall look. So, one of the mistakes that you need to avoid is picking the wrong color for your door. This is because if your door’s color doesn’t match your home’s overall color scheme, it can easily throw off the look of your entire home, causing its aesthetic appeal to suffer in the process.

  2. Spending Too Much 
    It’s understandable why some homeowners think that an expensive door equates to high quality. After all, at such a high price, it should be a good door, right? Unfortunately, focusing too much on the price is one of the exterior door replacement mistakes that you need to avoid. Instead, when picking out a door, start with a budget, and pick a quality door that’s within the aforementioned budget. That way, you’ll be getting a good door without having to break the bank.

  3. Sacrificing Quality 
    Likewise, you shouldn’t sacrifice door quality just so you can get a cheap door. This is because if you do, the flimsy material can not only negatively impact your home’s look, but it’s energy efficiency as well. Again, to avoid making this mistake, pick a quality door that’s within your budget. If you’re having a hard time doing so, meanwhile, you can always turn to a professional for advice and assistance.

  4. Picking a Door That Doesn’t Match Your Home’s Architectural Style 
    Similar to color, you also need to avoid making the mistake of picking a door that doesn’t match the architectural style of your home. Remember: there are some doors that suit a specific architectural style and some that do not. If you want to maintain your home’s look, it’s best that you pick one that matches your home’s style.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."
