Increase the Value of Your Home With Doors From Homespire
When looking to help improve your home’s ranking on the housing market, whether it’s cash or aesthetic value, consider replacing your exterior entryway and patio doors. Not only does this skyrocket the value of your home (more than other, similar-costing types of remodeling projects), but it improves the value to a potential buyer interested in structural integrity and home security. As an added bonus, green home improvements that improve your home’s carbon footprint may qualify you for tax credits.
Lower Energy Bills When You Replace an Old Door
When the structural integrity of your exterior doors isn’t up to par, you’re at risk of having cool drafts drive up your heating bill and pests enter your home. Install a new door if you notice issues such as:
- Cracks in the frame or glass seals
- You need to take extra measures to prevent drafts, such as keeping a towel at the bottom of your door
- Your door or doorknob makes noises when opening or closing
- The door doesn’t function properly, such as the knob not turning or the door getting stuck, especially in wet or hot weather
Withstand the Weather in Pennsylvania
According to data from the National Weather Service, Pennsylvania receives about three feet of rain per year. The most recent recorded rainfall was in 2018, when 56 inches of rain fell, mostly in July through September. Combine the humidity with temperatures that fluctuate from below 20 degrees to the mid-70s and you have a recipe for door swelling and warping. Replace your older door with a new one by ProVia, built to last in harsh weather and enjoy peace of mind that your family will be safe from the cold.
Types of Door Installations
With constant exposure to wind, rain, heat and snow, your doors have a hard life keeping you safe and dry. Whether you’re looking for a replacement front door or patio door, your home’s need will guide the type of door installation you’re looking for, as will the install experts at Homespire. With over 30 years of experience, we serve Pennsylvania homeowners with quality exterior doors for seamless outdoor-to-inside-living transitions.
Entryway Doors and Storm Doors
Don’t let your hard-earned cash sneak out underneath a gap in your door seals. Perform routine energy audits and replace your older entryway doors regularly. Experts recommend homeowners invest in a new front door every 20-60 years, depending on your climate and the material your door is made of. Fiberglass and metal doors are expected to last much longer than the wooden doors most older houses were built with.
Not only will replacing your front door help you save on heating and cooling costs, but you’ll increase your home’s value. New front doors typically generate around 68%-72% return on investment, between lower energy bills year-round and the upgrade in appearance. The gorgeous glass trim components in our doors are made with a high-quality heat- and moisture-resistant warm-edge glazing system that doesn’t pull away from the glass or warp due to changing weather over the years, keeping cold drafts out and warm air in.
ProVia entryway doors offer top-of-the-line class and security, with custom secure doors in a timeless style and finish to complement your decor. Enjoy long-lasting use with ProVia front doors, built sturdier than most with up to 49% more galvanized steel than competitors and hardware meant to stand the test of time, such as heavy-duty ball bearing hinges. Many ProVia doors feature a unique construction, such as our 20-gauge door made in-house with a weld-free interlocking design, with polyurethane foam filling to ensure insulation against hot or cold temperatures as well as noise.
Guard your entryway against the elements with a secure storm door. Made with heavy-duty steel mesh screening, you can count on our Duraguard series storm doors to keep pets and children safely inside when you need some extra circulation in the house or have an unexpected visitor. Corrosion-proof gussets keep your doors sturdy despite the weather and help keep your entryway door dry in wet weather.
