Replacing the entry door is not an easy job. In most cases, an experienced carpenter or home improvement company should be used to install the door and the various door fixtures. Often times, the doorframe may need an adjustment. It is best to leave the precise measurements, sawing and adjustments to the professionals. When installation is complete, you`ll be amazed at how the look of a new entry door can completely change the perception of your home`s exterior.
There are many styles to choose from. You can customize the look with your personal selection of the glass, hard wood (such as mahogany) or fiber glass, single or double doors or transom and side light windows.
Installation should be considered. For one, the door components do not disassemble easily. The actual door is likely attached to the frames of the sidelights, or a joiner accommodates the door unit and the sidelights. The threshold of the door is likely one single unit under the door and the sidelights. Replacing either just the door or the sidelights, or the frame from the threshold, may cause real damage. When priming, pre-finishing or pre-glazing comes standard with the product, it adds magnetic appeal to remodelers and homeowners. Glazing ensures that glass is protected and easy to clean. Priming gets the surface of the door ready for painting, pre-finished with a mahogany, oak or cherrywood staining. In this electronic age, it also still matters that the door has increased security, such as protection against forced entry in the jamb, lockset & deadbolt areas.
Fibreglass exterior doors are becoming more popular in the exterior glass doors market. Fiberglass can be beautifully decorative while at the same time strong and durable, resisting dents and scratches. Glass styles include leaded glass, bevelled glass, stained glass and architectural glass doors. With fibreglass you have greater options for picking unique designs such as bevelled glass doors. Bevelled glass can be used for oblique designs in triangular and diagonal shapes creating interesting rainbow light patterns by picking up the reflections of the colours of your interior entryway. You can decide on the level of privacy you are most comfortable with by choosing clear or patterned bevelled glass. Timeless appeal, beauty and elegance, these glass doors will never go out of style.
