The Power of a Replacing Your Front Door

We all want our house to look its best and in pristine condition. Did you know that by simply replacing your front door, you can increase your home’s curb appeal?

A Therma-Tru® National Home Valuation Study found that when you update, replace or improve your entry door, you can increase your home’s perceived value by $18,750 on average! Front door replacement consistently ranks among the most valuable remodeling projects in Remodeling magazine’s “Cost vs. Value Report,” which evaluates remodeling costs and resale value to determine which projects will give you the greatest return on your investment.

Types of Front Doors

When replacing your front door, you have several choices, including steel, wood or fiberglass. To choose, determine how much the door will be exposed to weather. It’s important to research the durability of the material and the quality of the weather stripping system to make sure the door will hold up and keep air and water out.

 Steels Doors

A steel entry door combines strength and stability with relatively low cost. A steel door has a well-deserved reputation for security and weather resistance.  The downfall of a steel door is that it’s prone to dents and dings that may be difficult or impossible to repair. Also, scratches in the surface may rust.

Wood Doors

If you want to add character to your home, a wood door should be your top choice. Wood doors with a natural or stained finish harmonize with all house styles. Of the types of front doors, they are generally the most expensive option. The drawback of wood is that it needs consistent maintenance, especially in harsh climates, or if the door is exposed to moisture and direct sunlight.

Fiberglass

Similar to steel doors, fiberglass doors feature an inner foam core that contributes to their light weight and high energy efficiency. Price-wise, fiberglass sits in the middle between steel and wood doors, but outperforms both in terms of toughness and low maintenance. Because fiberglass doesn’t contract and expand with changes in humidity as much as real wood, paint and stains last a long time. They  rarely need a touch-up!

Consider Color Options

Material, glass and finish are important, but we can’t forget about color! Do you prefer a bold color, or do you want a more natural look? Therma-Tru’s selection has a door color for everyone’s style that will match your home’s look and feel.

I just spoke with Dave V. by phone, but wanted to be sure that my appreciation did not go unnoticed. Jeff and Mark of your residential division just left my home after spending two days replacing several storm damaged windows.  I am calling and writing to express my deep appreciation for their professionalism, expertise and spirit.  They are both an asset to your company.  With a positive experience like the one I have experienced, you can bet that if there is additional work that I need done, Omni will be my first call.   ~ Thom N.

My recent experience with Omni Glass & Paint was fantastic. I had been waiting 3 months for a part for our front door from another glass company in Oshkosh. I reached out to Omni Glass & Paint; they came to look at the door, found the part and installed the part in less than a day. The door works perfect now. I was so impressed with Omni’s work and would highly recommend them to anyone. – Matt Bakalars, Fox Valley Savings Bank

Mark and Jeff installed windows in our home in Oshkosh.  We were extremely happy with their work but more than that, they went above and beyond to install those windows and were extremely friendly and informative along the way.  They even found an issue with rotten wood that the workers who installed our siding just covered up…so we are very grateful. Because of their services we would highly recommend Omni Glass to everyone.  And the windows are outstanding too!   ~ Roxanne D. – Oshkosh, WI

I just called to compliment the man who installed my new shower door.  Jeff was very pleasant, he did an AWESOME job, everything is perfect, and he left the place neater than when he arrived!  Everything lines up, everything fits, nothing leaks! I am so happy with the job he did!   ~ Nancy, Oshkosh, WI

I just wanted to congratulate the great crew we had working at my home, they were fantastic.  I am very, very pleased with their knowledge and abilities, they were the most impressive group of people I have ever worked with. Mark was especially helpful, he was absolutely wonderful to work with. Thanks again!   ~ Rick, P
