Monsters at the Door: Understanding When it's Time for Door Replacement

BLOG Posts

Halloween is right around the corner which means kids will soon be knocking on your front door, ringing your doorbell, and screaming “TRICK-OR-TREAT” looking for candy. During a time with such high-traffic on your front porch, it’s important to ensure that your doors work properly as you open and shut them. Your Halloween should leave you and your family feeling safe and secure while celebrating the spooky holiday together.

The reality of the matter is that no door lasts forever. Instead, you should pay attention to how your doors look, feel, and operate so you know when it’s time to replace them. There are many advantages that come with properly fitting and installed doors you simply can’t pass up or ignore. Thankfully, at Legend Windows, we know doors and can assist you in choosing a new one that compliments your home’s aesthetics and your family’s personality.

How Doors Degrade

You may assume that a door is in good shape if it opens and closes. However, the truth is that doors degrade over time and will eventually need to be replaced. There are some signs that you can be on the lookout for to know if it’s time to replace your front door or sliding doors. For instance, there may be sealing issues present or cracks and pests getting in. It’s not only about feeling a draft or noticing that the outdoor air is seeping in but your doors might also be worn-down in appearance.

If you're concerned with whether or not your doors are damaged or deteriorating, it’s important to schedule inspections. This will ensure they’re operating properly and can help you avoid failure at the hinges and other hardware. Wood and metal doors can become damaged over time from moisture and natural outdoor elements, causing rot and corrosion. Regardless of where you live, countryside or city, your doors are at risk for becoming deteriorated.

Advantages of New Doors

The good news is you don’t have to live with degrading doors for the rest of time. There are multiple advantages you can gain when you decide to replace your doors with properly fitted and newly installed doors. These benefits include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Keep your home at the proper temperature, reducing HVAC costs
  • Control outdoor noise from traveling inside and vice versa
  • Boost your curb appeal
  • Ensure your home is secure and protected
