Remodeling your home can be a very fun process. You get the opportunity to use your creativity and design your home the way you want to. A part of this process is choosing which door to make your home perfect. Choosing the perfect exterior door for your home adds curb appeal, especially when you implement solid mahogany doors. At Bellini Mastercraft, we are here to ensure that you get the best choices in all of West Palm Beach.
Your Entry Door is the Most Important Door
Entry doors are often more than just front doors. Those we tested can also be used in the back or on the side. Because the front entrance of your home commands the most attention from the street, it also commands the most attention in the marketplace. Here is what to consider, wherever you put it.
Most entry doors perform well overall. But the materials they are made of—fiberglass, steel, and wood—each have strengths and weaknesses. And while a low-priced steel door can be the equal of a wood or fiberglass door costing five times as much, it’s not the best choice for wear and tear. This is why solid mahogany doors often takes the cake!
Shopping Tips for an Exterior Door
Whether you buy at a store or online, you will save time by doing some research online and at least visiting a store to truly see what you are buying. Manufacturer sites describe materials and offer catalogs, and can help you to find a local retailer. And even if you don’t see the exact door you want, a similar model can give you a good idea of construction and finish.
Entry doors are also known as door systems because they come pre-hung in a frame and are often pre-drilled for a knob and deadbolt. Unless a replacement door is part of a larger remodeling project, you may want the new door to be the same size as the old one. Choosing a larger door or adding sidelights means redoing the door framing around the door—a job best left to a contractor. Home centers generally offer installation or referral services. Unless you are a skilled carpenter, you may also want to hire a pro to install same-size doors.
It takes a quality door lock to deter burglaries and home invasions. Many crooks kick in doors to get in. But unless your door is hollow, it is not the door itself that lets burglars in. This is why it is important to invest in solid mahogany doors.
Here are some ways to strengthen exterior doors: Use a lock with a 1-inch-long deadbolt and a reinforced metal box strike. Use 3-inch-long mounting screws so they lodge in the framing beyond the door jamb. And don’t overlook the door that leads into your house from the garage.
