Things to Consider When Adding a Door to Your Home

Are you toying with the idea of adding a door to your home? Replacing a current door, such as a front door, is an investment sure to pay off in the short and long term, but it can be especially hard adding a door to your home. For many clients that come into our Rusco Windows and Doors showroom looking to add a door to their home, they have no idea where to start.

Fortunately, we have 80 years worth of experience giving customers throughout Chicagoland quality products and customized experiences. When you are considering adding a door to your home, we are ready to guide you along the process so that you are pleased with your final result. Here are just a few things to consider as you begin your project with us:

What is the new door’s purpose?
First and foremost, let’s talk about what your new door is for. Is it for an added element of style, or is it to give you a new path out to your outdoor garden in the backyard? Once we are able to nail down what the door’s purpose is, we can begin to offer you options to meet this need.

Will the new door match your current architecture?
Next, we will talk about your home’s exterior architecture to see which door options may best accentuate it. Don’t worry if you have more modern taste but your home has a Victorian flair; we have experience in meshing together styles so that it creates a cohesive look. That is what is great about creating a custom door with Rusco – we can design it to look perfect by utilizing complementing color and stain as well as overall door aesthetics.

Will the door be energy efficient?
No matter what your door’s purpose or style, it is important to consider energy efficiency and savings. If the most stylish door is drafty in the wintertime, you won’t love it. Let the experts at Rusco help you select the best door so that you get the style and the efficiency.
