Few aspects of your home make a greater first impression than your front door, and few front doors look better than a door made custom to fit all your needs and specifications. Custom doors are available many number of styles and materials, and are a perfect, and easy, solution if you’re looking to improve the curb appeal of your home.
Custom Door 101
Not only are there a wide range of styles and materials to choose from, but there’s a wide range of custom door manufacturers to choose from as well. If you’re on a budget, but still want a custom look, you can order a custom door from a major door supplier by choosing from a pre-determined series of door styles, window glass, door materials, and security levels. The resulting door will be one-of-a-kind, but it won’t break the bank.
Of course, if money isn’t an issue, you might want to seek out a higher end manufacturer of custom doors. These specialty suppliers aren’t beholden to pre-determined, factory set limitations. They will literally build any style of door you choose, made from any material you can imagine. If you’re looking for a door that has no equal, there isn’t any question that this is the route you want to go.
Custom Doors and Materials
If you’re choosing a custom door from a large door manufacturer such as Pella Doors, your choices when it comes to materials are going to be somewhat limited. Steel and fiberglass are the most common exterior door materials available, though there are exceptions. You can usually choose from a wide range of colors and veneers, so your door won’t look like all the rest on the block. Be it a storybook, red front door, or one with a faux mahogany veneer, these aesthetic additions to traditional steel and fiberglass doors can transform an average door into something with serious curb appeal. If you’re going with a high-end manufacturer of custom doors, then the sky is the limit. We’ve even heard of a door made from recycled pickle barrels. Sure it’s a bit unusual, but it’s also an excellent example of how “custom” your custom doors can be.
Common Shower Door Problems
Replacing sliding patio and shower glass doors is a home improvement project that comes up often, especially in older homes. Before energy efficiency became a priority, and before technology improved building materials, sliding glass doors were some of the most inefficient aspects of a home, bar none. In fact, an older sliding glass door that faced the wrong direction was almost like not having a barrier there at all. All that being said, replacing sliding glass doors can beautify your home and do wonders when it comes to improving your home’s energy efficiency.
