Replacement entry doors: a smart investment

Projects like window and door replacements can recoup more than 70 percent of their cost at resale, according to the National Association of Realtors® and Remodeling magazine’s 2013 Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report.

Steel entry doors topped the list of projects with the potential to return the most, with an estimated 85.6 percent of costs recouped upon resale, according to the report.
