A New Entry Door Can Make Your Home Safer & Add Curb Appeal

Posted in Steel Doors, Entry Doors

70% of burglars enter through a home's door

Research shows a strong first impression is formed when a person first enters your home, starting with the look and feel of your home’s front entry door.   It’s the first thing anyone notices before entering. Why not make a positive statement and invest in a door that not only adds curb appeal but enhances your home security at the same time.

If you have a wood door, consider updating it to a steel security door. If your current entry door is dented, replace it with an inexpensive steel door, a fiberglass door or upgrade to a nice wood grain door. Installing new entry doors can secure your home against theft and keep out warm air as an added bonus. New doors are far safer than old doors and harder for would-be thieves to get through. Since 70% of burglars enter through a door, it’s very important to make sure your entry doors and sliding doors are secure and that locks and latches work properly.

Trim A Seal installs energy efficient replacement entry doors and security doors to improve the appearance of your home’s exterior and keep you safe.

A Retractable Sunsetter Awning Can Cut Energy Costs

The Green Way to Reduce Energy Use

Having an Sunsetter awning installed over your patio or deck during the summer offers not only a great escape from the hot sun, but it also helps to shield your carpet and furniture from the sun’s harmful rays.  However, one thing you may not have considered is that because outdoor shade products, like awnings, reduce the amount of sun coming through your home’s windows, they also help reduce your energy use! A study by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers proved that awnings keep your home up to 30% cooler. That can add up to substantial savings in energy usage and costs. For the same reasons, awnings are actually good for the environment.  How you ask?  Because using an awning contributes to a reduction in a household’s demand for energy which then directly reduces the impact of global warming from excessive energy use.

Whatever the reason you choose a Sunsetter retractable awning, you can’t go wrong.  Contact the awning installation experts at Trim-A-Seal today to find out more. Call 1-800-217-6355 for a free no hassle estimate.
