No More Knocks On This Door!
Clymer, NY, (near Lake Erie)has the distinction of having the home with the ugliest door in America. The door company Therma-Tru is replacing this blue-and-red door with a more appealing entryway valued at $3,000 to $5,000. The owners, for now, prefer to remain anonymous.
The company's message is that an attractive door has more than aesthetic value:
Replacing an old entry door with a new fiberglass entry system increases the perceived value of a home by as much as $24,000 – up to six percent of the home’s value.
