Benefits of Updating Your Entry Door
If you are realizing that your home needs a more updated look, then you many find, like millions of other homeowners, that your main entrance is where you will get the most ‘bang for your buck’. Tired, weather worn, or out dated door styles can dramatically depress the first impression of your home. If you are planning to sell your home, this is even more important because buyers are known to make critical decisions even before they enter the home.
Never underestimate the benefits of curb appeal when presenting your home. Too often a potential buyer will just drive by and not even stop to see all the upgrades inside if the outside of your home says – needs work! Or maybe you intend to stay in your home forever, but are planning an important event – like a wedding, – a new front entry door will have the biggest impact on your home’s curb appeal.
Nowadays, most entry doors come pre-hung in a frame and are often pre-drilled for a knob and lock. However, the hardware is typically not included since you will want to choose a style that matches other features of your entry way, such as external light fixtures. With an older home, you may have a single entry door and want to expand to double doors, or double doors with side lights and transom. In most cases, this would require engaging a contractor. But adding sidelights and transom, even to a single door adds significant light to the entrance way and can’t be topped for beauty and prestige.
If you are remodeling from one size entrance way to a much larger one, you will likely need a company to customize your door. Donatello Doors offers dozens of options for panel and glass designs, grille patterns, sidelights, and transoms and each door is hand crafted to your specifications. Donatello Doors even allows you to submit your own designs for the handcrafted grill work!

In the end, whatever entrance system you choose, you want to be certain that it matches your personal aesthetic, your demand for superior workmanship and your budget. At Donatello Doors we guarantee that you will be thrilled with your choice and our service.
