How to Decorate Your Front Door

Fall weather is here and for many homeowners, it’s time to start decorating their front entryways for autumn. Whether it is pumpkins lining the walkway, scary ghosts or gobbling décor, or hay bales, getting your outside looking festive is fun. Don’t forget to include your front door in your decorating, because this is one of the first things that guests notice when they come to visit you!  Here are some fun fall door decorating ideas:

  1.  Adding a wreath to your front door to ring in the fall season is a great idea. Make one yourself or find a store-bought wreath that is made of grapevines or greenery. If you want to make it more colorful, you can attach white mini pumpkins or colorful fall leaves with florist picks and secure it tightly with wire.
  2.  Old wooden signs with your house number or your family’s last name can be a fun way to welcome guests to your home. Paint the number or name on there or stencil it and attach. If you don’t want to put it directly on the door itself, consider hanging it to the left or right of the front door and keep it up all year long!
  3.  The fall weather brings plenty of rain and mud, so when guests head up to your entryway, be sure there is a nice doormat in front of the doorway. Consider a harvest-themed monogrammed doormat or floor rug that is eye-catching and usable so after guests knock on your front door, they have a place to wipe their feet before stepping inside.

If the doors in your home or old and inefficient, it may be time to start thinking about replacement doors. A new door will not only look great all year long – especially when it comes to decorating for all of those special holidays. Not to mention, new doors will save energy. Old doors can leak cold autumn air inside and let warm air outside, causing your utility bills to rise.  Need a new front door installed?

If your roof is leaking and has been repaired significantly over the years, it’s likely that you will need to consider a full roof replacement.  A new roof will keep your home protected throughout the various seasons of the year, including the springtime when we get a lot of wind and rain. In addition, a new roof will help add value to your home. We use only factory-trained installers for our roof replacements, so that means you’ll get the job done right the first time and you won’t need to worry about a thing.
