bigstock-Home-Exterior-61868876.jpgYour front door is used a lot, and even that’s an understatement! Try to do a quick count of how many times you or a family member goes in and out the door in a regular day. Whether you’re headed to work, getting the mail, answering the door for the pizza delivery guy or walking the dog, you’re using the door. This is the reason it’s so important to have a door that’s both functional and attractive. When your front door works well and looks good, your life is just a little bit easier.

Installing a front door is a complicated process, unless you have the American Window Products team to get it done. Whether you think the job seems incredibly easy or absolutely terrifying, there are some important reasons why the job should be left up to the experts. Your main entry door is the first line of defense against an intruder, is the main source of curb appeal for your home and must function perfectly 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Consider the Design

Start by imagining what you want your front door to look like based on the theme and color schemes of your home. Everything from the functionality to the color should be taken into consideration before making the big purchase.

The most popular door material on the market is fiberglass. Fiberglass doors look great and come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes. They’re extremely durable and are low maintenance, which is always a plus. Other than fiberglass, wood and steel are also traditional options.

Functionality Matters

The door’s functionality might be even more important than the way it looks from the street. How well the door opens and closes completely rides on the right selection and proper installation.

It’s important to consider the door’s durability and its expected lifespan. If a huge tropical storm hits (which, let’s face it, is inevitable in Jacksonville) will the door be able to withstand the impact and protect your family and interior? These are the questions that most buyers have and the great team at American Window Products can answer.

Our goal is to give you, our client, as much information about the purchase as possible and to ensure complete confidence in your door decision. We never walk away from a project until every client is happy with the door’s design, appearance and functionality.

The team at American Window Products will help you select and install a door that makes you proud to step in and out of countless times each day. Your home’s front door should be careful selected and expertly installed, and that’s exactly what you’ll get from our knowledgeable team.
