3 Reasons to Update Your External Doors
Now is the perfect time to get rid of that old front door of yours and invest in one that is new, attractive and highly functional. With autumn just around the corner, it’s very sensible try and get those outdoor DIY jobs done while nicer weather is a little more likely – plus, there are some pretty major reasons why your front door should be one of your first priorities. The specialists at Wonkee Donkee XL Joinery know the importance of a good front door first hand, and they’ve listed just a few reasons why now is the ideal time to treat yourself to a new one.
- Tightening Security
You can never underestimate the importance of home security. A rickety front door is an invitation for break-ins, as burglars naturally shun houses that appear to have good, up-to-date security features and will target a home that looks easy to enter. You may think it will never happen to you, but failing to update your front door will certainly make it just that little bit more likely. High quality, sturdy new materials will help keep thieves away, and a good solid set of locks will top off your new super-safe entrance perfectly.
- Saving Energy
These days, everyone’s trying to do their bit for the planet. Combatting energy waste is part of our duty to planet earth, and it’s something that can be achieved in unexpected ways. With the cold weather coming in, we’ll all be turning the heat up to stay warm and cosy, but that nasty draft from the front door could be affecting more than just your family’s personal comfort. Keeping the heat in will lower the amount of energy you use, making your household that much greener, but also saving you a surprising amount of money on energy bills. A new, properly sealed front door is perfect for that purpose.
- Sprucing Up
We’re all a little house-proud to some degree, and we like our homes to look their best. Whether it’s just a matter of keeping up with the Joneses, or giving yourself a warm sense of satisfaction when your house’s lovely façade appears on the horizon as you head home after a long day’s work, there’s nothing wrong with admitting the power of appearances. They can have a big influence over the value of your house too, so whether you’re looking to sell soon or not, a stylish new front door can make all the difference – giving your house a cosy, inviting feel.
