Embrace the Great Outdoors

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I modernize my front door?

Updating and modernizing your door are two separate projects. Updating is more focused on refreshing what is already there and may look like adding plants, flowers, or lights around your door. On the other hand, modernizing your door will involve some larger changes like designing a custom door with clean lines or installing minimalistic hardware.

What style of front door is best?

An iron door is best for security, durability, and customization purposes. Iron front doors are stronger than wood or fiberglass doors, and they won’t crack or warp. Any scratches can be easily fixed with our touch-up kit, which we provide upon installation.

What color front door increases value?

Right now, black is the most popular front door color. According to Homes and Gardens, real estate professionals suggest that this timeless tone could raise your property’s value by up to $6,500.
