Remodels that pay off – Front Door Replacement


In a report by Remodeling magazine, the mid-range entry door replacement brought the highest payback at an average of 102.1%

This easy remodeling project can really make an impact on a buyer’s first impression, which we all know really does matter when selling your home.

Entry Door Replacement

Average cost: 1,218

Resale value: $1,243

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.
