Top 3 Benefits of a New Front Door


The front door of any home is an important feature for three reasons; it is a crucial factor influencing a home’s security and insulation. And the front door can have a big impact on a home’s curb appeal.

#1 Secure Front Door

Most people enter their home through the front door, it just so happens that is also the most common way that intruders break-in. A new, secure front door might be the first step to securing your home if you have an older Connecticut home with an antique door that you don’t want to destroy with a new lock system. Most older, outdated front doors cannot provide the security needed to keep unwanted people out. By installing a new door, you are improving your home’s security to keep you and your family safe.

#2 Energy Efficient

Not only will your home be safer with a new front door, it will be more energy-efficient. An older door is more likely to have holes or leaks in it, allowing outside air to get inside and inside air to get outside. No matter the weather you will be leaking out cold or warm air. The more cold or hot air that gets inside, the more costly your heating and cooling bill will be.

#3 Improved Curb Appeal

And last but not least, the first impression of a house, the curb appeal can be dramatically improved by the front door. Since the front door is a focal point for most homes a quality front door will set the tone and improve a home’s appearance. (Therma-Tru offers some suggestions on improving your curb appeal).

You can improve your home’s energy efficiency with a Therma-Tru fiberglass door. No more leaks and costly electrical bills for you. A fiberglass door is stronger and more durable.

J. C. Tonnotti can install any replacement door. We have installed front doors made out of wood, steel, or fiberglass. Each one varies in quality and appearance.

  1. Doors made of wood demand a high price and are vulnerable to damages such as dents and scratches, lowering their long-term functionality despite their appeal.
  2. For a more functional door, some people chose steel doors, which are inexpensive but unappealing and can be damaged as well.
  3. The third and best option is a Therma-Tru fiberglass door. Therma-tru fiberglass doors are both resilient to scratches and scrapes as well as appealing to the eye. Fiberglass doors also do not interfere with front door decorations you may want to do. They are the clear choice for front door installation.
