What do you see when you look at your front door?

Maybe it’s time to think about replacing your front door if it doesn’t have the curb appeal you are looking for. However, looks aren’t the only reason you might need to replace that exterior door. There are some tell-tale signs it’s time to call a door replacement contractor.

Signs Your Exterior Door Needs Replaced

Your front door gets a lot of heavy use and they wear out over time. Look for these signs indicating your door needs replaced:

This exterior door needs replaced!

  • Drafty – Can you feel the hot or cold air coming straight through your door? If so, that’s a major sign it’s time for a replacement. A primary function of an exterior door is to protect you and your family from the outside elements.
  • Cracks and Visible Damage – Are there cracks, dents or other similar damage to your door? A structurally damaged door should be replaced. Exterior doors with cracks and other damage tend to not be structurally sound. That means they could be broken into easier. That poses a threat to you and your family.
  • Hard to shut/open – Over time doors can warp which can make it hard for the door to function properly! Warped doors tend to not shut as securely as they once did, which again, can pose a threat to your home.

There are a number of other reasons your door(s) might need replaced. If you are concerned about the state of your exterior doors, we offer a free inspection and quote for any replacement project.
