New Technology Makes Door Replacement Extremely Affordable

New Technology Makes Door Replacement Extremely Affordable

Doors are a great way to easily improve the look and feel of a house. When you replace a dated front door, it adds to the charm of your property and helps increase its value. When you then also update the interior doors, it’s amazing how something so simple can utterly transform the look of a home!

Not only do new doors enhance your home, they also make it more energy-efficient, providing you with savings on your heating bill over time. However, when we were approaching our door replacement projects in the past, we were looking at replacing the casing, the base and then painting the door. They were big projects and it took time and money to do right.

At Design Build Specialists, we’ve adopted a new process for replacing doors that’s not only cheaper, but also faster thanks to a new high-tech service provided by HomeStory, where we are the exclusive Marin area franchisee. With HomeStory’s technology, we can now take accurate digital measurements of any door frame down to the fraction of an inch. Once the measurements are taken, we then transfer the specifications digitally to HomeStory. They then pre-cut the door to perfectly fit the opening and also pre-finish it with a factory paint job. While the door is being cut, we’ll order up brand new hinges and locksets. Put it all together and you’ve got a replacement door that’s less expensive than the standard process that’s out there.

This new and improved door replacement system being utilized by Design Build Specialists is also being done at an unbelievable cost. How reasonable? Look at it this way; we can’t even compete with those prices ourselves as general contractors! Our average door replacements are now running around $2,500 instead of the tens of thousands it used to cost earlier. That’s an incredible bargain!

Ask around and you’ll find out that’s a huge savings. But don’t just take my word for it. Check out the pictures of some of the doors we’ve already placed into homes of some extremely happy homeowners.
