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.

You'll also get a free estimate so you have all the knowledge necessary to make the right choice for you and your home.

This the second time I used Northshield. They replaced five windows and two doors. Work was done efficiently and accurately. Would recommend it to all my friends and family.

Northshield replaced 9 windows in our house. Our only complaint would be that the colour doesn't really match the sample we were shown. The woman we first encountered in the showroom was pleasant and helpful. There are only so many things she could tell us in the showroom but it was enough to convince us to book an appointment with a salesman. Walter, the fellow who came to our house, wasn't really a salesman at all and yet he knew exactly what he was doing. Answered all of our questions, clearly knew his business inside and out, was patient with us, made some really helpful suggestions, and just generally made us feel confident and comfortable. Next came Vladimir. He came to do the final measurements and to verify the details of each window. Another very very knowledgeable guy. Clearly an expert in his field and yet friendly and patient with us. The team of men who came to do the install were all very much polite and professional. Their workmanship is first rate. In the end, what I know is this, the new windows are in, the drafts and rattles from the old ones are gone, the price was fine, the quality is A1, and every single individual along our journey was a genuine pleasure to work with.
