The Do’s and Don’ts of Toronto Door Replacement

January 16, 2017 0

If you’re like most Toronto homeowners; it’s probably been years since you first bought your front door. In fact, it may be the original door from when you first moved in. Compared to other areas of the home, your front door tends to get overlooked, even though you walk through it every single day. 

Do Take Action When You Notice Drafts or Damage
Sometimes your front door has to get damaged before you finally think about replacing it. A faded or dented front door can be a real eyesore, especially if you want to resell your house in the future. If the seal of the door is compromised, outside air leaks in through small gaps along the door frame. This airflow is what causes that sudden, chilly draft you sometimes feel coming from seemingly nowhere in particular. 

Don’t Opt Out of Energy Efficiency
As soon as your door develops a seal failure, your HVAC system will have to work overtime just to regulate the interior temperature of your house. Of course, since you will be using more heating and cooling, your utility bills will also increase. The good news is that you will never have to worry about this problem again when you choose Brock’s entry doors. All our entry doors are certified by Energy Star, a government program that tests and rates the energy performance of doors and windows. Brock’s Energy Star doors not only protect your home from drafts, but may also make you eligible to receive tax benefits. 

Do Spend a Little Time on Style
Remember: your front door has the power to either increase or decrease from your home’s curb appeal. This is why it’s always best to choose a style that matches your home’s architecture.  Otherwise, your door may seem out of place. From glass panels to decorative hardware, Brock Doors and Windows has everything you need to create the one-of-a-kind door of your dreams.
