A month or so ago, I shared the plans with Pella Windows and Doors that mom has for the exterior entrance way to the house they’re completely remodeling inside and out.
Things are moving along with the home renovation and the latest is a cool hi tech Pella Windows and Doors entry door with Pella Insynctive Technology (also featured in the Better Homes & Gardens Innovation Home)!
So much work is being completed on the inside – new electrical, plumbing, new walls, new floors, new everything! I can’t wait to show you! Exterior/outdoor/landscaping DIY will resume next spring. I love the board and batten siding! Wouldn’t it be beautiful in a lighter color? Their plans are to create a stone facade. That’ll be gorgeous too. The ugly carport/paved parking area will be transformed into a pergola and patio. But in the meantime, a beautiful new ‘smart’ entry door just couldn’t wait. Because this entrance (before) was anything but welcoming…
Pella arrived to do the measurements and to confirm the door and accessories that my mom wanted. A quick simple visit and an appointment made for installation. Then Pella’s installation crew showed up and got to work. They handled everything from removing the old door and door jamb to installation of the gorgeous new door and accessories to installing trim to clean up. Professional, fast, friendly and quality work…
…and a gorgeous entry door…
…with Insynctive technology. What is Insynctive technology? It’s a wireless system that monitors when the door is locked or unlocked, closed or opened. How handy is that? Smart! There’s a sensor in the door that connects wirelessly to a bridge home automation hub (which reads sensors on as many doors and windows as you wish to connect) adding extra security and peace of mind to the homeowner. They’re even considering the garage door sensors for several of their outbuildings. A status indicator is then displayed anywhere in the home. We’re thinking the bedroom is a good place…a quick glance before going to sleep to know if you’re all locked down without having to get back up to check the doors and windows. A Pella representative does the installation and provides education for how it all works.
My mom and her husband are thrilled with the gorgeous Pella door that allows natural light to flood into what will be their kitchen, a beautiful warm welcome from the outside as well as the Insynctive technology that will provide convenience and extra security. Huge difference!
Looking forward to how that gorgeous door is going to inspire a beautiful outdoor entryway in the near future!
