Entry Door Installation
Entry door installation is one of the easiest ways to change curb appeal. With so many door styles and choices available, homeowners can select doors that deliver their desired look. At Window & Door Outlet®, we offer exterior doors in many uses and styles including front doors, craftsman style doors, entry doors, patio doors, storm doors, hinged doors, french doors, sliding doors, and beautiful leaded glass doors. Doors were our specialty when we started, and continue to be a category that distinguishes us from the rest.
In addition to looks, entry door installation also provides greater energy efficiency, which reduces the amount of money that you will spend heating and cooling your home. According to the US Department of Energy “New exterior doors often fit and insulate better than older types. If you have older doors in your home, replacing them might be a good investment, resulting in lower heating and cooling costs. ” For more information from Energy.gov about energy ratings for doors and other home fixtures, see this useful article: http://energy.gov/energysaver/energy-performance-ratings-windows-doors-and-skylights

The overall separation of the home with the outside elements is called the home “envelope”. With this in mind, we cater your installation maximize your home’s envelope, taking into account sunlight exposure, wind direction, and other factors that effect energy efficiency from an architectural standpoint. Some contractors may just install a door that looks nice, but our entry door installations look beautiful AND help reduce energy costs.
