Ready for a warm new look? Try a wood front door

Winters in Bloomington, IN might mean a lot of weather changes: colder temperatures, wetter environments and overcast skies. One of the best ways to warm up the look of your home throughout this sometimes dreary time of year is by adding a wooden replacement door. The detailed wood doors from McComb Window & Door are crafted to complement your home and insert warmth to your entryway.

Now that understand the types of wooden doors available to you through McComb Window & Door, how do know if a wooden door is best for your home? There are several advantages to wood replacement doors besides their style and warmth. Here are some things to think about:

  • Because the doors are comprised of wood, they are easier to customize. Door panels, molding and any other special features can easily be crafted into wood to make your front door unique. You can also highlight your wood’s natural grain with stain.
  • Depending on the environment, wood replacement doors and windows can be a long-lasting, durable product. Wood doors usually require an overhang, so you will want to consider that for your replacement project. That means that wood doors may help increase your home’s energy efficiency, and even diminish noise from the outdoors.
  • Because wood is a natural material that can be shaped in different ways, wooden doors can be custom made to fit almost any size of doorway. And it isn’t difficult to insert glass windows or pieces into a custom door for increased light.
  • According to Consumer Reports, wood is one of the ideal door materials for resisting wear and tear. Wood doors are less likely to dent and scratch and are easily repairable. However, to keep the doors looking their best, they require routine painting or varnishing on a frequent basis.

The entryway is the main point of any home. If you are looking for an inviting upgrade this winter, or just want to try out a more unique look for your house, chat with our McComb Window & Door professionals about wood replacement doors.
