4 Things to Consider When Choosing an Entry Door


When you're making a decision about your home, you need to consider all the facts. You don't have to become an expert on all things related to home renovations, but you should always equip yourself with some basic knowledge. Often a few Google searches is all you need to learn the necessary facts.

 

Your entry door is one of the most important aspects of your home, so before you start calling companies to find a replacement, take a few moments to get acquainted with the options available.

 

Here are 4 things you should consider when you're thinking about getting a new entry door:

 

1. Maintenance – cost is probably one of your main concerns already, but have you thought about maintenance? Depending on the door you choose, you could end up spending a fair bit of time and money to keep your door looking good. Many people choose fiberglass doors because it can be manufactured to look like wood but doesn't require nearly as much maintenance.

 

2. Glass panes – have you always wanted a door with some intricately decorated glass panels? You can get entry doors with glass panels in all shapes and sizes. What's really important about your glass panels is that you make sure they're double or triple glazed and sealed properly so you won't be losing energy through them.

 

3. Insulation – it's not just the glass panels that have an impact on how well your door insulates your home. The material your entry door is made out of has a huge impact on how well it insulates your home—and for how long. Wooden entry doors can warp or rot, but fiberglass and steel doors will keep your home well insulated for years. And don't think insulation is just about winter—it's also what keeps the cool air in during the summer.

 

4. Style – you and your home are unique, and your entry door should express something about yourself and your home. When you're choosing an entry door think about the decor of your house and the overall style of your entry hall in particular. When you're looking for a company to purchase your entry door from, NorthShield is a clear choice. We offer a wide range of styles so you know you'll find the perfect entry door for you.

 

Still not sure what kind of entry door you're going to purchase? When you call NorthShield Windows and Doors we'll send one of our experts to your house to walk you through the different options and help you make the best decision possible. You'll also get a free estimate so you have all the knowledge necessary to make the right choice for you and your home.

Likely a good company for windows, installers seemed competent. However for doors they seemed to have much less experience. My salesman left the company midway through the process and I wasn't informed, and turns out some miscommunication between him and I led to a product I didn't want. The door is nice, just not what I had thought I ordered, and it took about 4 months to get, so I accepted it. The paint also chipped after they left, which leaves a bad feeling (even though that's more of a manufacturer issue than NorthShield issue). I'm not saying these guys are going to be bad for you, but I'm not thrilled with my result. REPLY December 5, 2018: I had called about the paint chip and wrong door options already at the time and was told there was no recourse for me. The paint chip was there when I came home from work after the door was installed, but you provided a picture the installers took before the paint was chipped, so at that time I was told there was no recourse. The wrong options I was told was due to a salesman who took my order having left the company, and there was no paperwork showing my chosen option (no door handle hole to be cut). I will call again tomorrow and update this with the results of that conversation.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Very professional workers that despite finding, no vapor barrier and wood rot on our deck, fixed it right and continued to install our very beautiful door and side light without complaint. I would highly recommend Northshield to any friends, neighbors or anyone else. I am a very Happy, Happy Gal with my beautiful new door!

Installation crew showed up on time. Brought coverings and tarps to contain any mess. Installation went smoothly and the guys were very polite and considerate. The old windows and frames were removed and the jobsite was clean when they left. Great work at a good price! Thanks Andy and Serge.

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.
