Under the Canopy: The Benefits of Adding a Door Canopy to Your Home

Posted: Monday 20th November 2017 |Author: Elglaze Team

Elglaze range of doors add distinction to any property. But what if you want to go one step further when it comes to creating a grand entrance to your home? Door canopies are easy to install and come with built-in benefits.  Here are the top five reasons why you should consider topping off that front door with a canopy:


1: Boost your kerb appeal: We’ve talked in the past how new windows and the right front door give your home that instant facelift that revs up your kerb appeal. Door canopies take that one step further. If you ever think of selling your home, most buyers decide whether they are interested in your property or not before even getting out of their car – simply based on how the exterior looks. Adding a door canopy elevates your property above that of its neighbours and says you care enough about your home to invest in it. If the outside looks this good, the inside will too!

2: Shelter: If you’ve a front entrance that’s exposed then a door canopy provides shelter from the elements and also adds an extra level of security. You and your visitors no longer have to stand exposed to the elements. And a light under the canopy means you can not only find the lock easily on dark nights but can see who has come calling too.

3: Extra storage: At last! Somewhere to park those muddy boots or umbrellas. When the weather turns wet, the outside stays out where it belongs.

4: Insulation: A door canopy can protect your interior. It can act as a barrier against direct wind in the winter and also shelter your hallway (or living area if your front door opens directly into it as with many terraced homes), from excessive heat in summer.

5: Protection: A door canopy protects your front door and the immediate area around it from the worst the weather can throw at it.
