The “Pizza Theory” for selecting the best Entry Doors for your home.

Yes, you can make the comparison of ordering a pizza with a variety of toppings, as an analogy for selecting a new front entry door, for your home or business.

It’s all about the toppings, or in this case, the options. Just like everyone has their own unique taste and personal preferences when ordering a pizza: (Thin crust, deep dish, traditional, sausage, pepperoni, bacon, ham, mozzarella, seasoned cheese, olives, pineapple, artichoke hearts, anchovies, etc.)

Of course, the more toppings you add, and the more exotic the toppings, the more the price increases. So let’s determine your taste for style and what options you would like to add.
