Find the Replacement Door Thats Right for You
At the start of your search for a replacement door, here are some key aspects to consider:
What type of door do you want?
If you’re planning to replace your entry door, consider a material type that is right for the style of your home. In homes with wood windows or homes that feature a variety of other wood accents in the style, a wood entry door may be the answer. Fiberglass and steel entry doors also look great with any home type, hold up through harsh weather and are affordable for nearly any budget.
Before selecting new patio doors, make sure to decide between hinged or sliding door options. Hinged patio doors offer outstanding style and the widest possible opening. For patios that don’t have a lot of space, sliding patio doors are a great choice to fit your needs while still providing an excellent look at your view outside.
Improve Your Security
When you begin the door replacement process, take a moment to look at your current security. Are you content with the performance of your locks and strength of your glass? A new replacement door can help increase your home security in a number of ways.
- Locks: A selection of lock options can enhance the security of your entry door or patio door. For more security, go with a multipoint locking system, which locks in two to three places. On sliding patio doors, this option features a lock at the top and bottom. On both entry and patio-hinged doors, the locks are the top, bottom and center.
- Glass: In products where glass makes up the majority of the door, the glass plays a significant role in safeguarding your family and your home from strong storms as well as intruders. When planning your new entry or patio replacement door, make sure to ask about the glass options available for the door your chosen model. One of the strongest materials out there is laminated glass, which is created by including a polymer layer between two sheets of glass. This inner layer holds the glass together even if it’s shattered.
Additional security features – Home automation is a developing trend, and that includes safety components for your doors. With Pella® Insynctive®, your doors are synced with the system’s status indicator so you can simply see whether the door is open or closed and locked or unlocked.
