If you’re in the market to replace any of the exterior doors on your home, there are many factors to consider before deciding which is the best door for your house. Factors to consider in your decision include cost, type of door, how long the door is expected to last, security the door offers, style, and type of material. You should also consider whether you want a screen or security door installed to protect the front door.
In this blog, we’ll discuss our preferred door brands and why they may be right for your new exterior door installation project.
Unified is the only dealer on Long Island who is certified to offer Homeguard Entry Doors.
Homeguard (HGI) steel entry doors are ideal for homeowners because they are made of composite material instead of wood which means they will never rot or warp. They are built using an all-steel construction that is heavier than competitor’s doors offering more security and durability. These doors offer features such as an 18 gauge steel frame, a double reinforced security lock with steel plates to ensure your home is burglar-proof, and tempered safety glass giving you the peace of mind your family will be safe in your home.
HGI doors also offer a higher level of energy-efficiency than other door brands on the market, allowing for you to control the temperature of your home more accurately. Homeguards doors also have a bottom weather-strip that slides off and on for easy replacement and forms a weather-tight seal to your home’s threshold. This will increase the overall insulation of your house making your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Finally, HGI entry doors offer an elevated level of beauty for your home. Choose from stained and painted finishes with a variety of options for decorative glass and unique hardware options. Choose from steel or fiberglass with many glass options as well as designs, colors, and stains. Homeguard doors are truly the most customizable option for homeowners.
