Once spring arrives and the daffodils begin to bloom, your old front door may look pretty drab. Still, many consumers may avoid home improvement projects because of a reluctance to spend money in a questionable economy.

As many as one-third to one-half of consumers expect to stick with money-saving strategies even after the recession ends, according to Retail Forward, a retail-consulting firm. However, this could be the season when homeowners can have it all.

“Today, homeowners are still focused on getting the most for their money,” says Kathy Krafka Harkema, Pella Windows and Doors spokesperson. “Home improvement projects can add to the look and comfort of your home, and help reduce monthly utility bills to help make the most of your hard-earned money.”

A new study from Pella Corporation finds plenty of items in homes across the country calling for attention. According to the survey conducted by Kelton Research, almost two-thirds of U.S. homeowners admit they have a major item in their home that needs some maintenance. In fact, the average American has five items that need to be repaired or replaced.

In many cases, items on the “to-do” list include replacing windows or doors. One way to update your home and help cut the maintenance of it is to revitalize your entryway with an energy-efficient, stylish new prefinished door. Decorative glass options featured in today’s entry door systems can welcome in natural light and enhance the curb appeal of a home. Now’s also the time to replace those worn-out windows and get the added benefit of energy-saving to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
