  1. Thank you for the article!
    I agree that front door replacement to a new steel door is a great investment. It gives the house “cleaner” look. Also these doors come in different finishes which is great.
    And as an entry door we use very often, it’s important that they are durable. And steel doors are also made for this purpose.
    And we can’t forget that these doors are much safer than wood doors, for example.
