Different types of businesses may often have different front door requirements. Traditional retail businesses may choose full glass doors so customers can look right into the retail establishment. Hospitals and other medical facilities may have handicap-accessible automatic opening doors.

5 Ways to Add Value to your North Carolina Home

Buying real estate is a significant investment and an enormous achievement. Your home will build up equity over time, but there are other ways to increase its value — meaning it’s worth more money should you opt to sell.

At the same time, you and your family get to enjoy the impact of these improvements, like getting a new gorgeous wrought iron door. What else can you do to add home value to your North Carolina property?

1. Update Your Doors, Especially the Front one

A gorgeous door can transform a home from something nice but average to a showpiece. Add luxurious value to your home by removing the dated entrance door and replacing it with a thick and stable wrought iron door.

A wrought iron door adds more than just elegance to your home. It helps to protect it during bad weather or attempted break-ins. Wrought iron doors are:

  • Energy efficient
  • Highly functional
  • Aesthetically pleasing

They come in a variety of designs, shapes and sizes suitable for most entryways regardless of the square footage. They will definitely make your home look more attractive, adding value.

2. Add Iron Gates and Railings

There are plenty of things North Carolina homeowners can do to make their homes more safer. It starts with an iron door but for extra security, consider including an iron gate. If you are located in North Carolina or South Carolina, then we can also install your iron gate to provide a level of safety.

If you have children or live with older adults, then check out the iron railings that Forever Iron Doors has to offer. They can be made to perfectly match your custom iron door.

3. Add a New Garage Door

If you are looking for a low-cost way to add some value, consider upgrading your garage door. Nothing impacts curb appeal quite like a stodgy-looking, dented garage door. Old or low-quality garage doors not only corrode but they also leave your home vulnerable should someone try to break into it.

Consider a specially designed garage door if you want to make a significant investment. Look for one-of-a-kind designs, large window choices and a variety of vibrant colors and powder-coated finishes for long-lasting attractiveness.

4. Give Your Kitchen a Makeover

Big and minor improvements to the kitchen have value. Just upgrading the counters and old appliances will more equity. You could also consider:

  • Changing out the light fixtures
  • Painting or replacing the cabinets
  • Painting the interior walls
  • Expanding the space

A kitchen remodel can offer a significant value increase. Look to modernize the colors and increase the natural light to get the most out of the makeover.

5. Put Fresh Color on the Exterior

The most durable way to freshen up the color of your home is with vinyl siding. Vinyl siding comes in various colors and patterns, but it also requires less maintenance than other exterior surfaces like stucco or wood. It will also help to protect your home from things like mold and corrosion.

If adding new siding isn’t going to work for you, then consider just painting the house. Although not as durable as vinyl siding, a fresh paint job will go a long way to improve your home’s curb appeal and give it a fresh new look.

Key Takeaways

  • Updating the various parts of your home will pay off when it comes time to sell.
  • There are projects big and small that increase the value of your home.
  • An excellent place to start is by adding a quality wrought iron door.

If you are looking for ways to add value to your North Carolina home, why not start with the doors? Give us a call today for an estimate on quality iron doors. We ship anywhere in the U.S.

What are Thermally Broken Iron Entry Doors?

Forever Custom Iron Doors utilizes thermal break technology so that your wrought iron door protects against cold air in the winter and hot air in the summer to help lower your energy bill.

Thermal break doors are constructed with three crucial elements — the interior panel connector separates the internal panel and the exterior panel. This separation of outside air (either cold or hot) from the internal panel prevents the transfer of winter’s cold blast or summer’s blistering heat.

That separation is just the first step in thermally broken iron entry doors. Forever Custom Iron Doors then injects the door with closed-cell polyurethane foam to provide additional insulation and provides sound insulation.

No matter where your home is located in North Carolina — from the higher elevations of the Appalachians to the Outer Banks — your home will be protected against cold winds, snow, sleet and driving rain.

Advantages of Upgrading to a Custom Iron Door

If you’re a North Carolina homeowner contemplating a custom iron door from Forever Custom Iron Doors, now is the perfect time to prepare your home for all and the upcoming winter.

  1. Repair or upgrade door frame: Retrofitting an exterior door to a custom iron door is the ideal time to inspect your door frame and threshold for rotting boards and other water damage. If you live within two hours of our Charlotte location, installation by our professional crew is available. Our crew will prep your door opening, remove any rotted wood, and seal the framing to protect against water intrusion and condensation.
  2. Conversion of a single door to a double door: The Forever Custom Iron Doors staff can help you if you want to convert your single door or single door with skylight to a double door.
  3. Increased security: Custom iron doors deter break-ins. Most intruders avoid custom iron doors because of their installation and locks.
  4. Add curb appeal and value: The choice of a custom iron door instantly adds curb appeal. Your new door adds value to your home — buyers know that you care about the safety and beauty of your property.

How a Custom Iron Door can Cut your Electric Bill this Summer

The high heat of summer is upon us and many of us are sweating while sitting inside. It’s tempting to turn the AC even colder, but this will also cause your electric bill to spike. There are many ways to boost your home’s energy efficiency to avoid those large bills. Blackout curtains, managing the thermostat and blocking all window drafts are just a few of the ways you can keep your home cooler in the summer. At Forever Custom Iron Doors, we have another solution you might not have thought of: custom wrought iron doors.

Are Wrought Iron Doors Energy Efficient?

Every door that comes from Forever Custom Iron Doors is made with three-layer construction. This construction is what allows the doors to act as an insulator, keeping your home cooler in the summer.

The three layers are similar in design to corrugated cardboard. There is an interior and exterior panel, and between them is a connector. To fill the gaps, we inject a closed-cell polyurethane foam.

If you choose, your custom iron door can be built with thermal break. We have a variety of in-stock models with thermal breaks, but we can also custom-design doors just for you.

How Iron Doors Help Your Energy Bill

How exactly do these thermally broken doors help your energy bill? As mentioned before, the three-layer construction with closed-cell polyurethane foam acts as insulation. It provides a thicker frame which makes it more difficult for the sun’s heat to enter your home. Without this heat getting inside, you don’t need to use the air conditioner as much, which means you won’t be using as much electricity to run it. This results in a lower electric bill for you, and a cooler environment.

Other Benefits of Thermally Broken Doors

Thermally broken doors are not just beneficial for your electricity bill and the environment. They are also beautiful and elegant with wrought iron designs that ensure your door stands out from the rest. The iron is easy to maintain so your doors will be looking great year after year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at them. The doors are made with 2″ thick 12 gauge steel, iron deadbolts, and forged and welded hinges. This makes them strong and durable to keep out heat, cold, wind and rain. This strong construction also makes them more secure than traditional doors, keeping you and your family safe. Plus, the thickness of the doors and injected closed-cell polyurethane foam also serve as a sound barrier to keep loud noises from interrupting your peaceful space.

Takeaways

  • Electricity bills can be costly during the summer and custom wrought iron doors can help.
  • Wrought iron doors include a thermal break design that keeps your home cooler in the summer.
  • This insulating design keeps the heat from entering your home, meaning you don’t need to use the AC as much.
  • Thermally broken doors are also beautiful, easy to maintain, strong, durable, secure and noise-canceling.

Boost Your Home’s Energy Efficiency with Thermally Broken Doors

Our thermally broken wrought iron doors can be custom-designed to suit your personal tastes, or you can choose from one of our in-stock designs. Every door is hand-crafted in New Jersey by our expert craftsmen and can be shipped anywhere in the continental United States. For more information about our other products, design process and door installation, please contact us online or call at 732-851-8502. We’ll be happy to tell you more about the benefits of thermally broken doors and how iron doors help your energy bill stay low, so you can have a cooler summer without breaking the bank.
