It may be impossible to overstate how important doors are to a house. There is, of course, the obvious importance – as the entryway into your home – but a door is so much more than that.
Tax Credits for windows and doors are back! We are excited to announce that our energy efficient Windows and Doors are eligible for a tax credit.
It must be an existing home and your principal residence – new construction does not qualify. Included in the tax credit at energy efficient windows, doors, and skylights that reduce your energy bills.
Requirements: The product must be ENERGY STAR qualified. You need not replace all windows, doors, or skylights to qualify, nor does it have to be a replacement window.

When it comes to exterior doors, there are several types to choose from, each with a distinct purpose. These include:
In addition to these doors, homeowners can also order custom doors to fit a special space. This is a particular factor when seeking a replacement door for a unique, older house that many not have the standard features of most modern homes.
Doors can be made out of various types of materials to suit your home’s design or the local environmental conditions. A classic wooden door can give your home a rustic look while tall, painted fiberglass embossed doors can lend your home an elegant appearance. Glass doors can let you enjoy the view of your backyard from the comfort of your home and can illuminate an entire room while dual doors can open up an entire room and extend the available space.
The material used to construct your door will dictate how it’s to be maintained. Wood doors will require protection against the elements (such as staining) to keep them in good condition for many years. Meanwhile, fiberglass doors often require only a quick wash with the garden hose to keep them looking their best.
Unless you’re experienced with construction and installation, it’s probably best to leave installing a door to the professionals. Sunshine Contracting is a certified installer and has professional certifications to install Alside, Pro-Via and Therma-Tru doors.
