Find the Replacement Door Thats Right for You

An important part of your Memphis-area home, doors are used every day and can be a key aspect of your home’s curb appeal and overall appearance both inside and out. So when the time comes to replace your entry or patio doors, picking the best option shouldn’t be a decision you take lightly.

At the start of your shopping for a replacement door, here are some key options to consider:

What type of door do you want?

If you’re replacing your entry door, think about a material type that fits best with the style of your home. In homes with wood windows or homes that feature a lot of other wood accents in the style, a wood entry door may be the best choice. Fiberglass and steel entry doors also look great with any home type, last through harsh weather and are affordable for just about any budget.

Before choosing replacement patio doors, make sure to decide between hinged or sliding door options. Hinged patio doors offer exquisite style and the widest possible opening. For limited space areas, sliding patio doors are the ideal choice to fit your needs while still providing an excellent look at your view outside.

Improve Your Security

When you go through the door replacement process, take a moment to look at the security you have in place. Are you happy with the performance of your locks and strength of your glass? A new replacement door can help increase your home security in a number of ways.

  • Locks: A variety of lock options can boost the security of your entry door or patio door. For more security, go with a multipoint locking system, which locks in two to three places. On sliding patio doors, this option features a lock at the top and bottom. On both entry and patio-hinged doors, the locks are the top, bottom and center.
  • Glass: In situations where glass makes up most of the door, the glass plays a significant role in safeguarding your family and your home from harsh weather as well as intruders.
