Although door replacement and repair may not seem necessary, door issues are more common than you think. Here are a few indicators that you need a replacement:
Wooden doors are beautiful, but unfortunately, they can become warped due to weather and condensation. When wood is warped, your entry won’t look its best, but it also may not function its best because the latch area may be affected. If this is the case, the latch may not fit anymore, and your door will not close properly, so it won’t lock or keep you safe from intruders.
When you walk by your front door, does the temperature change? This might result from a cracked door seal that can only be repaired so many times until it’s time to get a replacement. This could also indicate a gap in your door, which welcomes unwanted insects, debris, and condensation.
This one may seem unnecessary, but replacing your door is perfectly valid because it’s out of style. Doing so can also save you on energy bills, as newer models have adapted to new standards and environmental regulations. Not to mention, it will tie your house together!
