Is a $5,000 Custom Entry Door Worth It? December 15, 2016 If you’re looking for replacement doors, such as a new front door for your home, you may see that custom doors could cost $5,000 and sometimes even more than that. It seems a high price at first, but once you get into the nitty-gritty and understand what’s at stake, you realize $5,000 is a small investment in quality, design, functionality, and safety. Ultimately, it comes down to what you’re looking for. While you can purchase a brand new replacement entry door for the front of your home for a few thousand dollars, it might look nothing more than plain and ordinary. Maybe that’s okay with you, but consider safety and security. The more expensive a door is, that doesn’t mean it’s a higher quality, but more often than not it has better hardware, is more durable, and is much more difficult to break down. You want to protect your home, assets, and family. You’ve invested significantly in this house and want it to look its best. With a high quality entry door, not only will you get the best in security, you can also benefit from improved curb appeal, lighting (with great stained-glass or etched glass windows on the door) and much more. You can make your home appear much more inviting than it is at the moment.
