When you choose high-quality doors for your Utah home, you can increase your property’s value and curb appeal. You can cut your energy use (and cost) and increase the interior comfort of your home. You can also eliminate the need for regular maintenance and better ensure the safety of your family.
To choose the right new or replacement doors for your home, consider the interior and exterior look you prefer and which materials will best meet your goals for durability, security and upkeep.
What Is a High-Quality Door?
To determine the quality of any door, you have to look beyond the price.
Look for models that resist wear and tear as well as weather extremes. Maintenance requirements are also important because no homeowner wants to spend excessive amounts of time sealing, refinishing or repairing their doors. Energy efficiency is another indicator of quality. Look for Energy Star certified designs, which help cut energy use and cost by reducing heat transfer.
Security is a primary concern for every Utah homeowner. High-quality doors offer the latest security innovations to deter potential breaches. Even the most durable, energy-efficient designs won’t pass the high-quality test if they don’t look great. Look for exceptional designs that enhance the curb appeal of your home as well as your interior design theme.
Manufacturing standards also contribute to quality. For example, Milgard produces many of their products in-house, rather than purchasing from third-party sources. This provides for a much higher level of quality control and has contributed to the many window and door quality awards Milgard receives every year – including eight “Best Quality Vinyl in the Nation” nods.
Why Should You Choose High-Quality Doors?
The primary reasons that Utah homeowners prefer high-quality doors include:
- Improved Home Security
- Reduced Energy Use & Cost
- Enhanced Curb Appeal
- Increased Home Value
Investing in a high-quality exterior door package for your Utah home will pay off when you sell your home. In fact, according to Remodeling magazine’s cost vs. value data, you can recover an amazing 91.3 percent of the cost of a steel entry door in increased home value.
Which Doors Should You Choose for Your Utah Home?
Utah’s weather extremes put doors and windows to the test, month after month and year after year. This means you have to choose designs that can stand up to rain, snow, harsh winds, extremes of heat and cold as well as our intense sun.
Assuming you’re not into doing a lot of maintenance, you’ll want a design and material that requires little or no maintenance. Fiberglass and steel designs are resistant to wear and don’t require a lot of maintenance but, ultimately, wood doors stand the test of time in value, durability and design.
