Aging in place is becoming increasingly popular as more people choose to stay in their homes as they grow older. To make your home suitable for the next phase of your life, a door replacement would make sense to ensure seamless accessibility, safety and comfort. In this post, Tri-County Contracting will guide you through the important factors to consider when planning a door replacement with your future needs in mind.


When planning a door replacement, it is important to consider the door’s width, threshold and entryway modifications. The door’s size should fit well and fill any gaps to improve insulation and keep your home secure.


Thresholds can be a tripping hazard, so opt for a low or no-threshold design. You can have an expert remove the door’s old threshold to provide a seamless, non-obstructed frame.


The material that your door is made from should be durable, low-maintenance and energy-efficient. Security features should include reliable locks, peepholes or video doorbells. Your contractor might recommend doors with multiple traditional or digital locks.


Most homeowners want a door that looks great with the entirety of their property. You can use your HOA’s door aesthetics, style and colors guidelines. Alternatively, you can look at homes in your area with the same architecture to help you decide. Your contractor may also provide suitable recommendations if you need inspiration.
