Regardless of where you are in the process, here are four pointers to be on the lookout for when selecting replacement doors that anyone can utilize:

  1. Weatherproof performance: Exterior doors on a home have to be able to handle extreme weather conditions and you shouldn’t have to be concerned about the weather impacting your door every time the season changes. Just as the material of the door is critical, so are its performance features, as you want your doors to protect your home from drafts and leaks.

  3. Energy efficiency: Selecting the correct exterior replacement door can help with efficiency because it’s not letting air in and out. The more insulated your door is, the more maintained your thermal transfer will be, which can reduce heat loss. A proper door frame is also an essential component for protection against rotting, leaks, dirt and other weather elements.
