August is National Curb Appeal Month, check out three great options to enhance your curb appeal in a smart way.
1. Wood Garage Doors
According to Remodeling Magazine’s 31st Cost vs Value report in 2018, the #1 return on investment is a garage door replacement; recouping 98% of its cost.
2. Front Entry Exterior Door
A truly great way to distinguish your home’s curb appeal is to replace a steel entry door with a wood Front Entry Door system; also referred to as a Front Entry Door or Exterior Door.
Deciding to revive the front of your home will leave a lasting impression on your guests! We can match your preferred style from rustic to refined with the perfect selection. For example, we can design a craftsman style shaker wood exterior door with sidelites and transom or we can create a modern all glass style and rail wood exterior door. We use fine design, precise machining, and high-quality materials to provide a durable and secure front entry door system.
The construction of the wood entry door is very important. Our preferred method to insure your wood front exterior door does not warp or bow is to use a solid engineered core with a ¼” veneer on the styles and rails.
Let’s not forget about security. We offer a multi-point locking system that offers equal security on both sides of your door.
Lastly, a great option to customize your wood entry door is with decorative obscured glass. We can help guide your selection of glass styles, some of the options include a traditional rain glass to a more luxurious look of Autumn. Below are four ideas for glass options; this is not the full selection that is available.
