Entry doors are more than just the part of your home that controls who comes in and out. This is why you have to be careful when picking a door. Renewal by Andersen® of Tucson lists the five indispensable qualities you should look for when choosing a new entry door.
Good Weather Resistance
Because entry doors are exposed to the outdoors, they must be made of materials that can survive the constant temperature and humidity changes unique to your home’s climate. Our Fibrex® doors are a great option because they can do well in almost any weather condition with minimal maintenance necessary.
An entry door surviving the harsh weather is one thing, but being structurally resilient is a different story altogether. Entry doors must be able to survive or resist damage caused by strong impact, moisture and even fire. Fortunately, we offer French doors and other high-quality options that are durable enough to keep your home safe and your repair bills at a minimum.
Entry doors must have all the necessary hardware to give homeowners a sense of security. An entry door with a single tumbler lock won’t provide as much security, but a main entry door with a deadbolt lock on top of a tumbler/drum lock should provide an extra layer of security to help keep your mind at ease.
Good Energy Efficiency
An entry door also plays an important role in the home’s energy efficiency. If properly installed, our entry doors should have a fairly airtight seal, completing the home’s isolative layer that keeps indoor temperatures comfortable. We also use energy-efficient materials to further enhance your entry door’s ability to cut down on regular energy consumption.
Entry doors are part of your home’s exterior, so make sure your preferred options go well with the rest of your home. In most cases, French doors are a staple of more traditional home designs while sliding windows are great for more modern home themes. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you’re always stuck with a certain type of door; you can always get help from our team to help you find a door that looks perfect for your home.
