A home remodel is no easy feat, and it can leave your mind, and your bank account drained. It's definitely challenging to decide what needs more attention and resources and what you can put off for a while, or perhaps even DIY.
However, your home’s front door is never something to compromise on. It's something that visitors and passersby see, as well as an important way to boost curb appeal. So here’s what you need to know about using our steel entry doors for your home:
Set a budget for the remodeling project
Before you start, it’s important to set a clear budget. What are you willing to spend, and what is your upper limit on it? Consider the number of doors you're getting replaced, costs of transportation, installation, additional disposal or removal services, and other details.
Without factoring all this in, you run the risk of exceeding your budget and possibly ending up with excess costs and incomplete remodels. Be realistic about your budget too, and don't try to cut corners because that may hinder the quality of the final results.
Identify your needs and requirements
As with any project, door replacements and remodeling also need planning and identification. We've got single entry doors, double entry doors, doors that swing left, doors that go right, front doors that have wider glass panels, and doors that come with thermally broken technology. You should know your needs, including the size, orientation, and other factors that can impact the use and functionality, so we're able to deliver exactly what you require.
Pick a style that complements your home
Apart from just the functional and logistical details, consider the stylistic and aesthetic details too. Our doors are designed to work with most modern housing styles, bringing a touch of industrial, minimalist aesthetics, but you can choose from our various designs, including gorgeous Beverly doors, full arches, flat tops, frosted glass, and more. Look at all the factors like privacy, durability, and the overall style of your home's construction before making your final pick!
Work with a contractor for installation
Our doors may be lightweight, but they are heavy-duty, and while it's fairly simple to install them yourself, if you require more extensive remodeling and reshaping, such as changing the shape of your doorframe, or widening your entryway, hire a contractor. It's tempting to save more by doing it on your own, but it might end up costing you in the long run. You could damage the doors with tends, nicks, and scratches or even break the otherwise strong glass.
We’d love to help you find the perfect steel front door, steel windows, and steel entry door for other parts of your house too. Feel free to reach out to us today!
