You don’t want to make an upgrade to your home that doesn’t have a high ROI (return on investment). Many homeowners make the mistake of upgrading the wrong features of their home. However, adding in screen doors is an upgrade worth investing in. Screen doors not only improve the overall function of your home, but also increase its value.
So how do screen doors add value to your home?
There are a few ways installing screen doors can increase the worth of your home.
Protects your glass
Screen doors actually can help protect your front and sliding glass doors. By having a protective mesh layer on the outside of your glass door, any debris heading for your glass door is shielded by your screen one. Installing a screen door is much cheaper than replacing a glass door. Equally, if wind-blown debris damages your screen, a screen door repair in Aurora is much cheaper than repairing damage done to your front door.
Screen doors allow you to let the wind outside cool down your house without leaving the doors to you house completely open. Being able to cool down your home without turning on your central air conditioning system can save you a significant amount of money on your monthly energy bills. Since screen doors can be locked, you can enjoy saving energy while not having to worry about someone walking right into your home off the street.
Breeze without bugs
When the weather is nice outside you want to be able to open the windows and doors to let in a nice breeze. However, if you don’t have screens installed than you are running the risk of mosquitoes, flies and other insects flying into your home. A screen door allows you to feel that warm summer breeze without having to chase bugs out of your house.
Indoor to outdoor space
When the warm weather rolls around you will want to have barbecues and make the most of your outdoor space. Installing screens in front of your patio or backyard doors allows you to safely transform your indoor space into a larger outdoor space. Having this feature in your home will increase its market value should you ever decide to put it on the market.
While you might not think screen doors add any security to your home, they actually do! All screen doors come with locks, which means if a burglar is attempting to break into your house, they would have to break through two locked doors instead of just one. Just this fact alone deters criminals from targeting your home. Screen doors can also be customized to your security needs. Equally, they come in a variety of colors so you can match your screen doors to the exterior of your house.
It’s important to remember that a screen door needs to be maintained. You will want to make sure you clean it regularly and keep dirt, grime and debris from jamming the lock or opening mechanism. If you need a screen door repair in Aurora, call United Glass Aurora.
