Exterior Door Installer in Novi

When it comes to deciding on the right door for your home, you’ll want one that can stand up to the harsh winter weather and help keep the heat inside the home.  While the look of a door is important to keeping your home visually appealing, also keep in mind the benefits that the different types of doors can provide in maximizing energy efficiency.

  • Wood Doors – The most common door out there in homes, wood doors will give your home an aesthetically pleasing look but at the cost of being the least energy efficient. Additions such as weatherstripping can help alleviate the loss of heat.
  • Fiberglass Doors – Many fiberglass doors can look similar to a wood door but are much more energy efficient which will save you money on utility bills.
  • Steel Doors – Although the least visually appealing, a steel door is good at insulating and keeping the home secure. The disadvantage to a steel door is the possibility of paint chipping away, scratches and even rust.  They may be the most ideal for garages and areas not as frequently seen as the front door.
