Make sure your new front door complements the style of your home and neighborhood. Change your old door out for a steel door and paint it to match your home’s trim. If appropriate, try leaded glass as well.
Other considerations include the type of steel, rust inhibitors, paint vs powder coating, aluminum thresholds, composite stops, new lock sets with a brass or antique finish.
This budget-concious project will add excellent curb appeal to your home. Next week we will take a look at the garage door replacement.
