The First Impression of Doors


Apart from keeping unwanted guests out, doors can also help maintain comfortable temperatures in your home and also keep the elements at bay. Apart from such practical purposes, doors also serve an aesthetic role and can quite literally make or break someone’s first impression of your home.

Curb Appeal:

When you first approach a house, the front door is one of the first things that will catch your eye. Even if the entire front exterior of the property is well taken care of, if the entry door is not in top shape, it will ruin your home's curb appeal. And as they say: first impressions are everything.

Creating a Theme:   

Entry doors come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. When choosing an entry door and even a patio door, it's important to consider the theme of your home. By choosing the right design and color to match your existing windows, you will enhance the current style. Accent lighting and decals allow homeowners to add even more style and character to their home.

Interior Aesthetics:

The right front and patio doors can make a significant difference on the interior and exterior design of your home. Just imagine all that extra light and the lovely view of your patio and garden! Patio doors are popular for their capacity to add extra light to the home without sacrificing energy efficiency. With the right doors you can let in light when you need it most without ever worrying about heat loss in the winter or letting the hot air in during the summer. You can choose whichever design you like the most in order to maximize your view when you spend time indoors. Not only will a lighter, brighter home appear cleaner and more spacious, but it will also have a remarkable effect on the mind and body.

Setting the tone:

The front door to your home helps set the tone for the rest of the house. As you approach the front door, you will get a sense of what to expect once you enter the home. For example, an old door or a door that has clearly been neglected can make visitors feel like they are about to enter a poorly maintained, or even dirty property. It's not the most inviting of experiences and you may find buyers reluctant to show express interest. On the other hand, if your front door is in good condition, your visitors will immediately expect the rest of your home to be well-organized and tidy. By choosing a particular color or design, you can create any look you’d prefer. For example: you could choose a brightly colored door to show your fun side, or you could opt for a darker color to show off your sophistication.

There are endless possibilities!

 

At NorthShield Windows and Doors, we have a wide range of doors including Steel Doors and French Patio Doors. All of our designs will ensure that your visitors will be impressed by your sense of style.

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.
