When Should I Replace My Doors
Are you wondering if it’s time to replace the doors at your home? Checking your existing doors can be a good place to start. Here are some of the key indicators that it may be time to consider a door replacement project.
The Door Doesn’t Open or Close Properly
If the door can’t function the way a door is supposed to, it’s a clear sign it’s time to replace the door. Your exterior doors play an important role in the safety and security of your home. If you can’t close the door all the way or can’t lock it for any reason, your safety is compromised and you need a new door.
The Door Is Constantly Stuck
Having a hard time opening and closing your door? This isn’t the way it should be. Being able to easily open the door and then close it securely is essential. Whether your front entry door is stuck in the door frame, or your patio doors require excessive effort to slide open, difficulty with your doors may mean it’s time for a door replacement project.
The Door Is Drafty or Poorly Insulated
The constant opening and closing of your door over the years can result in it wearing down over time. As it deteriorates, it may lead to air gaps that can cause draftiness. This is detrimental to your home, as it can result in a huge amount of energy loss over the years. Having a new, energy-efficient door installed on your home will address these issues and promote a more comfortable home environment.
Your Door Is Visibly Worn Down
Even if your door functions just fine, visible deterioration may also be a sign it’s time for a door replacement. A worn-down door may be just a day away from breaking down. Additionally, visible deterioration may serve as an invitation to intruders who will find it easier to break down an old door over a newer, more secure one.
You Don’t Like the Style of Your Door
You may also want to consider a door replacement project if you’re simply not satisfied with some aspect of your door. Whether you have a solid door and would prefer an option with decorative glass, or you’d prefer a fiberglass door that doesn’t require much maintenance over the years, it’s the right time for a door replacement if you simply want a new door.
You’re Planning a Window Replacement Project
If you already know your windows need to be replaced or are planning a window replacement project, this is also a good time to replace your doors. In many cases, window companies offer patio doors that match the features and styles of your windows. Additionally, your windows and doors may deteriorate at roughly the same rate. So, if your windows need to be replaced, your doors are probably in the same boat.
