Choosing the perfect entry doors Bend OR involves a variety of factors. Before diving into your search, take a look at Great Northern Window and Door’s Buying Guide for 2016.

Entry Doors Bend Oregon

Entry doors Bend OR hold a great deal of importance. Entry doors command the most attention from a street view and are the first threshold of safety for you and your family.

Security

Unless you have a hollow door, it’s usually not the door itself that lets burglars and home invaders inside. Battering ram tests show little difference in door strength among materials, but rather weakness because of faulty doorjambs and lock strike plates. Choose entry doors Bend OR with strong locks and strike plates to increase a door’s kick-in resistance and enhance your home security.

Installation

As the focal point of the front of your home, it’s important to have entry doors Bend OR properly installed for safety, energy efficiency and to ensure everyone is up to date on rules, regulations and codes.

Energy Efficiency

Choosing new entry doors Bend OR can improve your home’s energy efficiency. Proper installation ensures you receive the energy saving properties that a new door promises. Great Northern Window and Door features new entry doors Bend OR with Energy Star certifications.
