A Front Entry Door Adds Value to a Home

Consumers believe an attractive front entrance not only adds to a home’s curb appeal, but can also boost its perceived market value, according to a national study commissioned by Therma-Tru.

The study, conducted by an independent research company, found that a home with an enhanced Therma-Tru entryway added to its perceived value by as much as five times the cost of the door itself.*

At a time when homeowners are looking to get the most out of every dollar they spend on their home, installing an attractive new front entryway is a cost-effective investment that can have a big impact.
