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.

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

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.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
