@sozobe,
Looking to make a great first impression? How about switching out that overgrown cereal box you call a front door for an entry door that's as stylish and welcoming as you are? When it comes to adding some curb appeal to your home - and making a statement about who lives inside - your front door plays a leading role on the grand theater of your property.

@sozobe,
We're going to change our entry door also but I think the said price of the man you are talking about is big.

I like all the viewpoints. In my opinion alternative for purchasing brand new doors which will cost little more but they make more sense due to their energy efficiency in present doors as compared to older metal doors. I hate the storm doors maybe I lost a little in energy efficiency, but my front door was so much nicer looking without the storm.

Entrance doors must have good insulation.

Well, this requirement is a must when you live in areas with extremely hot or cold weather, even if it is seasonal.

Replacing the door alone will require of new weather strip insulation.

Replacing the door and frame together -as coming in the same set- will give you better insulation results because the fit is calibrated to its best.

From here, new expensive doors with windows, as pictured by you, usually have double or triple glass, or are gas insulated, and/or have similar new technology.

So, this is a first part to be reviewed.

The second part, is the style.

The more stylish with new technology added, the more expensive will be... duhhh.

Then, it will be opt to you, to mix both (energy conservation and style) or to go just for one of them in order to fit your budget.

Just remember that at the end, if you live in an area with rough weather, at the long run, a good insulated door will be the best for saving in gas or electric bills, depending of what kind of energy you use for heating, and if you need AC in your zone.

On the other hand, if you are thinking to put a screen door, then, the one with "style" will be the outsider door. In this scenario the entrance door style will be enjoyed mostly from the people inside, but from inside almost nobody look at the door, they look at the door lock instead.

Still, you want something bringing light to the room, and I strongly support that,.Day light coming from the door and windows makes people more positive, it makes you feel more "alive", it is great.

Doors last long, specially when you put a screen door at front, so, take the risk, invest in your comfort, just try to make it energy saver.

@sozobe,
It depends also how safe you want to be, which materials they are made of, and many other factors...
