3 Ways New Doors Improve Your Home Value

A new door does more than welcome you home and help you feel safer and more secure in your home. The right door can enhance your home’s value by adding more security, curb appeal, and energy efficiency to your home. At ARMORVUE, our team of local Florida experts has years of experience helping Florida homeowners find the right door for their style and budget. Is a new door on your home decor wishlist, but you’re still on the fence about buying one? Here are three ways a new door can improve your home value—and each one is an excellent reason why you should start browsing options for impact entry doors and patio doors.

1. Be Ready for the Next Hurricane or Tropical Storm

Florida has a very long hurricane season, running from the start of June through to the end of November. Every mile of Florida’s coastline has been hit by a hurricane at least once since 1850, and homes can see dozens of heavy storms and gale-force winds every year. Preparing your home for the inevitability of a tropical storm or hurricane—not just the likelihood of one—can minimize costly damage to your home and help keep your family and property safe.

Impact-resistant doors are extremely durable alternatives to conventional doors, protecting your home from inclement weather and branches or debris thrown around in the wind. They provide additional safety for your home’s occupants while strong winds are blowing or hurricanes are rolling up to the coast. They can protect your entryways and interiors from impact damage due to flying debris, downed branches, and other hazards.

Directly, homeowners benefit from the reduced risk of breakage.  Conventional doors may be dented, cracked, or scratched in heavy storms, but impact doors can withstand harsh weather for years. They come in a variety of styles, including sliding doors, French doors, and classic entry doors. Prospective buyers prefer properties that have been well taken care of, need minimal repairs, and have upgrades that benefit their lives in the new property.

2. Give Your Home More Curb Appeal

Curb appeal matters, whether you plan on selling your home today or you think you’ll put it on the market in the future. And new doors are proven to add that value. 

For an added boost of curb appeal, consider a patio door. These doors allow more sunlight and fresh air into your home while adding even more charm to your outdoor living space. You can enjoy your new installations for years to come and then still see an increase in your home’s sellability down the line. Some added benefits of a vinyl patio door from ARMORVUE include:

  • Energy Efficiency: ARMORVUE vinyl patio doors reduce the transfer of heat energy into your home. Enjoy the summer sunlight without letting in heat or losing cool, conditioned air.
  • A low-maintenance seal against pests and the elements: ARMORVUE patio door frames and seals are designed to handle the elements. The vinyl materials don’t warp or sag over time.

3. Enjoy More Energy Efficiency

Replacing an older door can immediately boost your home’s energy efficiency by helping to keep cold air inside while your A/C is running. Modern doors are often made with vinyl, an energy-efficient material that doesn’t transfer heat energy into your home. Lightly colored vinyl can even reflect the sun’s heat away from your home. Newer seals also create a tighter building envelope so there are fewer air leaks and less thermal movement.
