How To Choose A Back Door

Finding the perfect back door for any home is easier than you think!

While almost everyone spends time dreaming of their perfect front door to add curb appeal and charm to their home, most homeowners completely skip over thinking about their back door. If you need to choose a back door replacement for your home, here are some of our best tips for doing so quickly and easily.

Keep The Basics In Mind

Your back door is another main entrance to your home and typically also spills out onto your patio, deck, or backyard. As a result, it’s important to keep the same basics in mind that you do when choosing a front door. Will the back door replacement be secure and protect my home from any intruders? Does the back door need to offer the same amount of privacy as the front door? Are their furnishings near the back door that need to be protected from the sun or fading? Always choose a back door replacement that has double-paned glass and weather stripping to reduce your heating and cooling costs over the course of the year.

Sliding Back Doors

If your back door opens onto a patio, sliding patio doors are probably your best bet. This type of door works especially well if you have a tight amount of space between the outside and the rest of your home since you don’t need to allow for clear space where the hinged door will open. If you do choose a sliding back door for your home, make sure that you also budget for a screen. This way you can enjoy the cool seasonal breeze without worry over bugs getting into your home.

French Doors

French doors are practical and beautiful replacement back door options for your home. They do a great job of giving you a view of the backyard and letting lots of natural lighting in. Make sure that you use a locking system that locks at top, bottom, and center to protect your doors from break-ins and harsh storms. If you want a little-added privacy, use curtains on the French doors to decide exactly how much light you want to let in.
