Relieving Home Improvement Stress Since 1959

A Guide to Buying New Doors

People do not spend a lot of time thinking about doors. As long as they open and close, the average individual does not worry about them. Sometimes doors get broken. When doors get broken, they need to be replaced. But there are also other reasons to get new doors including insulation and aesthetics. Consider this basic guide before you go shopping for updated doors.


Measure First


When someone wants to buy a new door, they need to measure the frame. They also need to pay attention to any molding. They do not need to worry about where the hinges attach, but they should measure this piece of hardware as well. When the home owner does install the new door, he may or may not need to buy new hinges. Accurate measurements are crucial or the door may not properly fit the space.


Type of Door


Familiarize yourself with the various types of doors currently available. If the door will serve as the primary entrance to you abode, make sure it provides the extra security you need to feel safe. For example, the door should have slots for dead bolts and be heavier than doors used throughout the interior of the house. Some residences require double doors to fill the space while others have a single door. You might also want to consider a screen door to let air in without allowing bugs into your home.


Match Your Decor


While the individual needs to pay attention to the practical issues that come with purchasing such hardware, you may also want to make sure that it fits in with your basic decor. The door guarding the entrance to the home should go well with the outside paint color. Inside doors need to match the paneling or paint color in each room. Consider sliding glass doors in the back if you have a deck, pool or yard area. Inquire about screens to make your doorways a place where you can let air into your home.


When you look at doors online or at the local home goods store, it can get confusing and overwhelming. Trying to measure them yourself can be frustrating and errors become costly. Consult with a home renovation expert to get the right doors for your home without any hassles. From selection to installation, a home renovation specialist is with you every step of the way.
