Is It Time for a Door Replacement? 3 Signs to Help You Know

by Robert Larson

Your home's door is the first line of defense against burglary or unauthorized entry into your house. Therefore, you should keep it in tiptop shape to keep your home safe from intruders. If properly maintained, your residential door can serve you for many years. However, your door will need a replacement at some point because it may wear out faster than the other parts of your house due to its constant use. Even your strongest door may need a replacement due to weather damage or an attempted break-in. But how will you know that your front door needs a replacement? The following are three critical signs to watch out for:

Your Door Is Hard to Close or Open

Your front door may need a replacement if it always gets stuck when opening or closing it. This problem may occur when the door's shape is compromised. Additionally, your door may be hard to close or open due to defective hinges or a malfunctioning frame. If your efforts to repair your door are not bearing any fruits, having it replaced by a professional is the best solution. 

Your Door Is Extremely Weathered or Cracked

As your door gets old, it may develop cracks due to natural wear and tear or other severe problems because it is constantly exposed to harsh weather. A cracked door will allow conditioned air to seep out of your house, which will force your HVAC to overwork. For that reason, your energy bills will increase. Repairing an extremely weathered or cracked door may not be possible. In such a situation, it's advisable to have the door replaced as soon as possible by a professional to prevent high energy bills and boost security in your home.  

Your Door Is Outdated

An outdated door can ruin the overall appearance of your house. It will also be easy to compromise, which will increase the risk of burglary in your home. Replacing your outdated front door is a cost-effective strategy to improve safety in your home and boost the overall appearance of the residential property. The newly installed door will also reduce noise pollution and minimize the risk of pest infestation.

As a homeowner, you should not take your front door for granted because it is an indispensable part of your house that keeps unwanted guests out of your home. Do not hesitate to hire a door replacement contractor to replace your malfunctioning door if you notice any of the problems discussed above.
