Your front door is pretty important because it protects your home and your family from weather and intruders. Doors are built to last, but that doesn’t mean they won’t need to be replaced from time to time. Here are some signs it’s time for you to get a new front door.
Warping or Cracking
If your door is warped or cracked, it’s obviously damaged and isn’t providing the safety and protection benefits you need it to. Age and extreme weather can lead to both warping and cracking, both of which can interfere with the structural integrity of the door and can invite pests and weather inside your home. This is a good reason to get a new front door right away.
If you notice draughts around your front door, it’s clearly not doing its job. Gaps in the frame can let in cold air during the winter and hot air during the summer, which increases your energy usage and your energy bills. To properly fix the problem, it’s best to get a new front door instead of using door stops to block the draught.
Sticking or Squeaking
Nothing is more irritating than a front door that sticks and squeaks when you open and close it. Not only is it annoying, but it’s also a clear indication that you need a new front door. In most cases, this problem means your door is old, but in other cases it could be because there’s moisture making it swell. Leaving the problem usually makes it worse so it’s best to give us a call so we can help you pick out a new front door.
If your front door is scraping the floor, chances are you need a new door. The problem is usually a door that isn’t properly sized, but this can also occur due to warping and age. It’s something that won’t get better and to prevent further damage to your floors, it’s best to replace the door and we can help you get it done right.
A new front door will lower your energy bills, increase the value of your home and boost the curb appeal. Contact us here at Lifestyle Windows to discuss the door solutions we offer.
