Choosing an Exterior Door

Whether you’re looking for a beautiful wood door with inlaid glass or need a sturdy steel entry door for your business, we’ve got you covered. There are many different factors to consider when choosing an exterior door, including:

Climate

Icy New Jersey winters and steamy summers can take a toll on the exterior of your home, so your entry doors need to stand up to the elements. Wood looks amazing but definitely requires maintenance with painting and sealing, or it may eventually crack or warp. Steel doors function well in almost any climate and come in an array of finishes that look like real wood. Good quality fiberglass doors are resistant to cracking, easy to maintain, and can be customized to match most facades.

Insulation and Energy Efficiency

Both steel and fiberglass provide great insulation from hot and cold air. However, it’s important to keep in mind that leakage around your exterior door can let cold air in and warm air out (and vice versa in warmer months). This means that not only is the quality of the door important; weather stripping, framing, and proper door and window installation are critical. Manufacturers such as Therma Tru offer Energy Star® rated exterior doors that offer exceptional energy efficiency, which also can result in cost savings on utility bills.

Security

It’s essential for an entry door to be secure. The most important component of your door when it comes to keeping your home or building secure is the locking mechanism. At Jaeger Lumber, we offer traditional locks and state-of-the-art products from Schlage that look great and keep your home, office, or business safe and sound.

Accessibility

When shopping for a new door, it’s also important to keep large items in mind. You want to ensure your exterior door is wide enough to move furniture and equipment and to accommodate a wheelchair or scooter for elderly or disabled loved ones or customers.

Curb appeal

Sprucing up your home or business with a new door adds curb appeal and can increase the value of your property. When it comes to choosing a style and color for your new entry door, the possibilities are endless. Our experienced team members can help you look at all the elements that go into selecting a door and help you find something that meets your needs and your personality.
