Here are four takeaways from Principia’s latest survey of homeowners with recent door replacement projects.

  • Homeowners with older homes are more likely to change materials compared to homeowners with younger homes who are less likely to change materials.
  • Homeowners ranked performance and aesthetics as the most important attributes for a new entry door. The least important attributes were contractor suggestion and brand.
  • Three out of four homeowners with a recent door replacement project bought their new door themselves rather than a contractor buying it for them.
  • 78% of homeowners who bought replacement doors themselves purchased their doors through big box stores.
