Do new doors add value to your home?
If you’re thinking of selling your home, or simply want to know you’re doing all that you can to create a good impression when the time comes to sell, replacing your exterior doors can have an impact.
While it’s difficult to attribute exact values to changes you make around your home, you can measure the difference in how a home improvement makes you feel about a space when you enter a room.
It's all in the kerb appeal
When the time comes to sell your home, first impressions count for a lot. Your front door plays a huge part in this.
If a potential buyer visits your home and is greeted by an old, worn door that’s perhaps draughty or appears unsecure, this could damage their first impression. Feeling safe is an important factor when choosing to buy a new home, and one way you can ensure this secure feeling is by making sure doors – and windows – are up to scratch.
Not only does this give a potential buyer confidence that your home has been looked after, but it’s one less thing for them to have to fix should they want to buy your property.
Increasing your home's energy efficiency
According to the Department of Energy and Climate Change, having a more energy-efficient home could increase its value too. While steps such as ensuring your home is properly insulated may have a more significant impact on energy efficiency, ensuring your doors are as efficient as possible can also contribute to this.
Our composite doors in particular can provide added insulation to your home – you’ll find each door’s energy-efficiency rating as you browse the different styles. Our Elite solid core doors are available in an A-rated upgrade, while Classic GRP have an energy rating of A to A++.
When it comes down to increasing your home's value, it's all about finding the right home improvement products for you. To find out more about the types of door we offer, browse our available styles here.
