August 29, 2013 // Franchising.com // Replacing your front door came out at the top of Remodeling’s Magazine’s 2013 Cost vs. Value report which compares the average cost for 35 popular remodeling projects and the value they retain at resale. It has also consistently maintained the number one upgrade since 2009 when it was added to the list. Now thanks to new measuring technology from HomeStory, interior doors can also be quickly and easily updated for about half the cost of a normal door installation.
“For homeowners, realtors, property managers and construction industry professionals, interior door replacement is now an excellent choice and value for their property improvement dollar. It is amazing how something as simple as door replacement can literally transform an interior and add new life to the appearance of a residence. Owners are stunned at the transformation and impressed with the results,” said Dave Winter, CEO of HomeStory. “The door replacement process is easy and all the interior doors can be replaced in a couple of hours with no mess or hassle. Homeowners, realtors, property mangers and industry professionals are thrilled with the results, convenience and cost savings we provide.”
Formerly interior doors could take days or even weeks to replace and the process was considerably more expensive depending upon the size of the property. A lot of the work was done on site and installation was messy, inconvenient and invasive. HomeStory’s innovative measuring technology allows each door to be customized perfectly to the doorframe making the process quick and efficient. This also helps to prevent drafts making them much more energy efficient, which could also help to meet energy efficiency standards for LEED homes.
“Our customers love how the new doors have updated the look of their property and the wide selection of doors that we have available. We even offer custom locksets and hinges along with our specialty French, glass and mirrored doors. We custom fit and install new painted doors for about $199.
