Front Entry Doors
A new front entry door instantly enhances your home's appearance and greatly increases resale value. A recent study by door manufacturer Therma-Tru found that upgrading the front door of a house increased the perceived value of an average home by $8,000. Entry doors must be tough enough to withstand wind, rain, scorching sun, and would-be intruders, yet handsome enough to make a good first impression. Historically, entry doors were fabricated solely out of wood and the best doors were made of mahogany. Wood looks rich, can be stained and has a warm look and feel. Unfortunately, wood doors require alot of maintenance to keep them looking good.
Over the years, average wood doors were replaced with metal doors for their insulating value and durability. However, metal doors can only be painted and are sometimes easily dented. Today, many entry doors are made of modern materials, with the latest being fiberglass. Fiberglass entry doors are low maintenance and look like wood. Many fiberglass entry doors can be stained and have simulated wood grain to mimic oak or mahogany doors with an energy efficiency five (5) times that of wood. Additionally, fiberglass resists dents and scratches and is very low maintenance. Pratt & D'Angelo installs entry doors from Therma-Tru, Pro-Via and Pella to match your style and budget perfectly.
If your home's interior doors feel flimsy, hollow or just don't look nice, you should consider replacing them with solid core, MDF doors. Solid MDF doors are available in a wide range of sizes and styles to compliment any home. In fact, when your doors are painted, solid MDF doors are better than conventional wood since they wont expand and contract or split due to temperature and humidity variations typical in the northeast.
