Custom Door Atlanta

You likely don’t think much about your front door.  You come home, open the door, go inside and live your life.  Just because you don’t think about it, though, doesn’t mean others don’t.  It is true that your front door will not draw much attention if it’s just another front door. But, your front door could also be a statement piece.  It could be something that when people pass by they say, “now that’s a nice house.”  Other than windows and perhaps shutters, there is nothing else that will make a house stand out than a front door.

Replace Your Wood Door System with a Fiberglass or Iron Door from Atlanta’s Own North Georgia Replacement Windows

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Replacement_Door_Before_AfterUpgrading your old, wood door system is the ideal decision for many homeowners. A variety of problems exist with wooden doors, including the simple fact that they wear down over time. Nevertheless, new doors, including iron doors and fiberglass doors, are highly affordable and a better overall investment for many homeowners.

Improved Energy Efficiency

One of the key reasons to invest in a fiberglass or iron door in Atlanta is the improved efficiency. Due to their composition, these doors tend to offer far better insulation to the home. Even if you have a thick, well-preserved door, replacing it with fiberglass or iron will ensure the entire enclosure, including each of the seals, is airtight. This reduces your heating and cooling costs while creating greater comfort.

The Flexibility

When investing in a new door system for your home, think about the flexibility of your design options. Imagine being able to have large, double doors to open up to the visitors of your home. Buying new furniture just got easier, too. With iron doors in particular, you can craft the door in any shape and style you want, including arches and with uniquely shaped windows. There are very few, if any, limitations here.

Think Long Term

In the long term, iron and fiberglass doors last for years to come. In most cases, you will not have to replace these doors with new ones. A new door system, either iron or fiberglass, can transform the beauty, value, and energy efficiency of your home and last for decades.

There are also tax benefits to replacing your doors with qualified energy efficient fiberglass doors in 2013.

Is it Time to Replace Your Home’s Entry Doors?

Is it Time to Replace Your Home’s Entry Doors?

Dysfunctional doors require immediate attention, and some issues can be resolved with simple repairs. Replacement screws are easy enough to find at the local hardware store, new weather-stripping can prevent moisture, debris, and pests from coming inside, and doors that don’t open and close correctly can sometimes be fixed by realigning the hinges, strike plate, or latch.

Beyond screws, finding hardware can be tricky or impossible if you aren’t sure which manufacturer made the door, and, many times, problematic doors need to be completely replaced.

So, how do you know if a door needs complete replacement?

You should seriously consider totally replacing your door if…

After alignment, it still won’t open, close, or lock securely. When your doors don’t close securely, your family is at risk for home invasion. It if doesn’t open quickly and easily, you and your family could be trapped during an emergency.

The frame/door is rotten or broken. Repairs to rotten structures are difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. Even if you do get the frame repaired, future repairs and problems are inevitable.

Your energy bills are high. Replacing old doors with new, energy-efficient doors will reduce your heating and cooling bills.  A new door with proper weatherstripping will also cut down on air infiltration and make you more comfortable inside your home.

The furniture and flooring around the door are sun-bleached. When unfiltered sunlight streams in, it can damage fabrics and flooring by fading the color and can increase the overall temperature of your home.

You want to give your home a makeover.  The first thing people see when they come over is the front door, and enhancing your home’s curb appeal can increase your return investment if you plan on selling it in the future.

Once you’ve decided to replace a door in your home, the fun really starts! The door you choose says a lot about your family and can increase your curb-appeal in minutes.

At North Georgia Replacement Windows, we offer a huge variety of custom door options ranging from modern sliding glass doors to durable, insulated fiberglass doors that resist warping, rust, dents, and water damage. We even offer unique wrought-iron doors that are hand-forged in Mexico and provide a variety of glass and finish options.

As you design the perfect door for your home, here are a few final considerations:

Size

You may be inclined to stick with a standard size, but larger homes can accommodate larger doors. And, if you’re the proud owner of a room with a view, show it off with large panels of glass or a double door that opens wide for entertaining!

Shape

Arched doorways are gaining popularity and are a fantastic way to instantly change the aesthetic of your home. Cool, modern designs as well as more traditional ones are available.

Color

Selecting a color for your front door is often determined by your home’s aesthetics and decor.  But sometimes that’s the one area that people want to add a pop of color.  And, whether you realize it or not, studies have shown that there is power in color and that certain shades evoke different meanings and emotions.  Studies show that people with black doors are most successful, while white doors imply virtue and purity—blue ones, abundance and prosperity—and green ones, harmony and compassion. In Scotland, painting your door red means you’ve paid off your mortgage, while Americans living in the 1800’s recognized homes with red doors as places where they would be welcome to stop and rest for the night.  So whether you’re looking to create a certain feeling or send a certain message, we can help you with all your color needs!
