Exterior doors aren’t merely just an entryway into your home – they secure your home, contribute to its energy performance, and enhance your home’s curb appeal. Given the impact your exterior doors can have on your home overall, it’s important to spend some time putting some thought and consideration into which one’s you end up purchasing.
So – what qualities should you be looking for in a patio or entry door? Read on to find out.
- Energy Efficiency
Investing in energy efficient doors can go a long way if you want to save money on your energy bills. Choosing a premium exterior door that is designed to be a great insulator, resist thermal transfer and heat loss, and block outdoor drafts will allow you to maintain your preferred indoor climate and reduce wasted energy. Entry and patio doors from Mr. Rogers do just that, as they’re engineered for energy efficiency and to be weathertight.
- Weatherproof Finish
An external door should be able to stand up to the rigors of nature reliably as time goes on. A great front door should last a life time, not only a few years, and because of this, you’ll want to ensure it’s made out of the right materials. We carry several types of doors in both steel and ProVia Fiberglass, each with its own tradeoffs. You’ll want to consider your options carefully to ensure your door does everything you need it to. However, all doors sold by Mr. Rogers resist denting, cracking, warping, and rotting – and they come outfitted with weather-stripping to keep drafts and moisture outside.
- A Pleasing Appearance
When it comes to doors, looks are important! Often times, your front door will be the primary focal point of your home’s façade. After all, the front entryway is where you greet guests and people first enter your home. A beautiful front door can add pizazz to your home’s design and enhance its overall charm. Thankfully, all the doors sold by Mr. Rogers are customizable, with many options available to make your door unique.
When replacing an exterior door, look at it as an opportunity to get rid of the hassle of constant upkeep. Wood doors can be great, but they require maintenance and repainting as time goes on. All doors sold by Mr. Rogers will maintain their appearance with just basic cleaning – eliminating the need for repainting as the years roll by.
