Read along to find out 5 reasons it is time for a new replacement exterior door.
Cracks in the Door
Traditional wood doors are pretty and classic, but over time they take on moisture, wear and tear, and the occasional kick to open them. Wood front doors can develop cracks along the edges and often within the panel design. These cracks may be hard to see but a close examination can reveal minor cracks that can develop into more major issues if left untreated.
Door scratches and dents
Entry doors can take a beating through the years. After all, this is the point of entry for every piece of furniture you’ve moved in or out, not to mention appliances and boisterous kids. If you have dents or rusted scratches on your metal front door, it may have put a dent into its structural integrity and the energy efficiency it provides for your home.
Moisture in your entry door windows
Having a front door with glass or window inserts adds beauty to your home and sunlight to your interior. But if you’ve been noticing moisture between the double panes in form of condensation and fog, it’s sign that the seal on the window is compromised, and your door should be replaced.
Doors that are difficult to close or lock
Having to force your front door open tv-cop-show style is not the most serene way to enter your home (and it may make the neighbors want to call the real cops!) If you have to wrestle your front door open or closed, or if you have difficulty locking the door or dead bolt, something is not right. It could be due to warping, swelling, your house settling over time, loose door hinges, or it could be that the door frame is out of alignment, meaning the door’s locks don’t align with the door jamb. Unless you’re handy with tools, the door may need to be replaced by a professional.
Your front door is just not your style
There are certainly ways to dress up your home’s existing front door with a new paint color or door hardware, but if the door’s shape or style itself doesn’t speak to you or compliment the style of the house, why not get a new front door that does? And if you need to convince your partner, roommate, or yourself, know that replacing your entry door is a cost-efficient, energy-efficient solution. The curb appeal value alone will pay for itself when you sell. Depending on space, you may want to consider adding sidelite windows or a transom window above your entry door. This is the time to get exactly what you want for your home’s first impression.
