MAUMEE, OHIO – How do you know if your home needs a new front door? What color entry door improves the curb appeal of your home? When is the best time to make an investment in a new door? These are just some of the questions that experts at Therma-Tru offer answers and guidance to during “Door Do-Over Week” from August 3-7, 2015.
“Our inaugural Door Do-Over Week was extremely successful last year,” says Donna Contat, director of brand management for Therma-Tru Corp. “We were able to provide helpful insights to homeowners and guide them through the door evaluation and selection processes. We’re looking forward to once again helping consumers evaluate their current doors, learn more about door aesthetics and components, and providing valuable information on making door purchase decisions.”
There are many reasons why a home could need a door do-over. According to Contat, entry doors, like other major components of the home, can wear out over time and need to be replaced. Additionally, a homeowner may “inherit” a door on a home they’ve recently purchased and wish to change the style to a better one in order to complement their home’s personality.
“Homeowners don’t need to live with a front entry door that they don’t like or that has become inefficient over time,” says Contat. “From a curb appeal and investment standpoint, it can make good economic sense to replace a front entry door.”
Door Do-Over Week coincides with National Curb Appeal Month in August. “Our goal is to provide homeowners with information and ideas for making a smart, affordable and good-looking door replacement choice for their homes,” says Contat. “Whether it’s a wood-grained entry door that complements an Arts and Crafts-style home or a smooth painted door to highlight a Modern-style home, the entry is the key welcoming trademark of every house.
“Curb appeal isn’t just a buzzword. It’s the wow factor people get when they drive by your home. It’s the cozy feel that welcomes guests to come in and stay a while. And most homeowners agree: An attractive front entrance not only adds curb appeal, but can increase perceived resale value.”
