Full Frontal!

It’s a big decision that will impact the look and feel of your home for years to come. This DIY fixer-upper is all about your front door. ⁣

You know it needs some TLC, but should you paint it or replace it? Here are a few tips to help you identify which DIY path is right for you:⁣

If your current front door is wood (or painted wood), you can sand and repaint/restain it for little more than $100 and a bit of elbow grease.⁣

If your current door is steel and spotted with rust, dents, and dings, you may want to consider a new exterior door.⁣

Try this. Shut your front door from the inside of your home, and take a few steps back. If you see light shining through the bottom of the door, other things like drafts, water, insects may seep in.⁣ If you decide to replace your door, consider fiberglass. Fiberglass has the lowest maintenance when compared with wood and steel.⁣

The bottom line is this: If your wood door is in great shape, paint it. You can always go back and replace it later. If your door isn’t functioning well, like a door, it’s probably time to replace it.⁣

If you have other questions about how you can keep your home in tip-top shape, give us a call! We’d love to help.⁣
