Gee, I’d like to say “yes,” but you probably won’t be very happy with that door in the long run! A good quality entry door will cost about $5000, but it will be worth every penny because it will last and look good for years to come.
If you have started to shop around with the $3000 limit in mind, you’re probably dismayed right about now at the selection available to you. That’s because low-end, low-quality doors are simply not designed to look beautiful, to seal properly, in short, they are not designed to last. In the world of windows and doors, you really do get what you pay for. A low-budget product probably means a low-budget installation. So chances are they are not going to be sending out the best sub-contractors to install the door correctly.
I would say, wait a little longer, save up for the door you really want, invest in quality and in a professional installation. Don’t sacrifice, don’t settle. Get your $5000 door — a door that you are going to love for a long time. You don’t want to have to replace your entry door three years from now.
One option you could consider is financing. That way, you can make monthly payments on the right door. Treat this entry door purchase as an investment. Besides, you want to be proud to drive up to your home every day and see a great-looking door! And a home with a beautiful front entrance has great curb appeal, so bear that in mind too if you ever plan to sell your home.
