[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]If it’s your first time purchasing front entry doors for your Fairfield home, you may be surprised to find how stressful the ordeal can be. The truth is, there are a number of factors to be considered while purchasing your front entry doors. These doors will be responsible for the security, energy efficiency, and exterior appeal of your home, so it’s not a decision to be rushed. At Rocket Door, we have been matching homeowners with their perfect doors for decades, so we know a thing or two about which factors will matter in the long run. Here’s our list of important factors to keep in mind to ensure you’re satisfied with your front entry door purchase.

How Much Are You Willing to Invest?

Chances are you’ve already taken into consideration how much you would like to spend on the initial cost of your entry doors, but have you thought about how much you are willing to spend on the long term. The happiest homeowners are those who have decided what their long term budget is, and have done their homework to ensure there are no surprises. Your long term budget will entail extra costs like upkeep, maintenance, the cost of extra security hardware or features, and the number of times you plan on replacing your door. Once you have a better idea of your long term budget, it will become easier to narrow down which material and model is right for you.

How Much Time Are You Willing to Spend?

If you plan on doing all of your front entry door maintenance yourself, it’s important to know how much time you’re willing to spend on such tasks. For example, wooden front entry doors will require annual peeling, sanding, painting and staining while fiberglass entry doors only require the occasional cleaning with soap and water. By considering this factor beforehand you will ensure that you aren’t stuck with any extra chores.

Are You Planning on Reselling Your Home?

If you’re planning on reselling your home sometime in the near future, it’s important that every home improvement task reflects this end goal. While it’s important to find an entry door style that will suit your personal taste, you want to be sure that your choice increases your resale value not decreases it. We suggest speaking with real estate agents in your area or visiting local open houses to learn more about what is considered standard for entry doors in your district.
