When choosing a door material, you’ll need to consider price, energy efficiency, maintenance, and of course, style. Doors are commonly built from one of the following three types of materials:
What Do I Need to Know About Locks and Hardware?
While locks and hardware are designed to add style to your doors, their primary function is security. With countless options available for new doors, it’s best to ask an experienced door installer for recommendations to ensure that your new locks and hardware provide the level of security you want at a cost-effective price. Some manufacturers even offer state-of-the-art options such as integrated lock sensors for an extra layer of protection and peace of mind.
Should My Doors Swing Inward or Outward?
While most doors swing inward, the climate where you live can impact your decision. Outward-swinging doors are popular for homeowners in regions that experience strong winds, tropical storms, or hurricanes since they help decrease chances that the doors will be blown in. Inward-swinging doors are beneficial in areas that receive heavy snowfall. With an inward-swinging door, you won’t get trapped inside your home when snow piles up against the door.
Do My New Doors Come with Warranties?
In order to protect your investment, you want to make sure that your new doors are at least covered by a manufacturer warranty. While most door manufacturers offer lifetime or limited lifetime warranties on their products, also ask your contractor if they offer a labor warranty.
Are You a Licensed and Insured Contractor?
With so many home remodeling scams in the headlines today, it’s important to choose a professional contractor to install your new doors. Ask to see proof of the contractor’s insurance and licensing, as well as coverage for any workers who will be on your property.
How Long Have You Been Installing Doors?
When it comes to replacement doors, it’s important to know how long they’ve actually been installing new doors. Even if they have years of experience performing basis home remodeling jobs, you’ll want to make sure they are door installation experts dedicated to providing high-quality products, workmanship, and service.
