Do you think you need a new front door? If you’re unsure we hope our post today helps with our 5 signs you need to buy a new front door. Don’t leave it too long, as the longer you leave it the more your door could be letting things in instead of keeping things out.
1. Squeaking Hinges.
If you’re getting some unwanted sound effects from your front door, consider it a sign your door is gradually wearing out. This could be because the hinges are loose, and if that is the case, then someone will be able to break in much easier if the door opens a little too easily.
2. Is Your Door Sticking?
If you’re finding it hard to shut or open the door then you may need to replace it. You can try and replace it but you’ll need to know what you’re doing. Investing in a new door could be the simplest and easiest option.
3. Does Your Door Scrape Along the Floor?
If when you’re opening and closing the door, you find it scrapes the surface of the floor and you can hear it, then it could be due to the door being out of shape. There could be numerous causes for this such as sagging or warping due to rain and changes in temperature. Get it checked and if it’s beyond repair, then it’s high time you replaced it.
4. Drafty Doors?
One of the worst problems you’ll notice quickly, almost as quickly as noisy hinges, is drafts. Yes, if your home is starting to feel like the North Pole it could be because your front door is no longer able to provide insulation. This could play havoc with your energy bills. It’s usually down to something like the seals around the door having worn out and you can try replacing them, but it may be the case that you simply need a new front door.
5. Door Out Of Style?
Finally, it could be just that your door is out of step with fashion trends and it looks odd and out of style with the rest of your home. In fact, it could be out of place with the architecture, perhaps one chosen by a previous owner? If that is the case, then time to replace with something that’s more stylish and fitting for the style of your home, both inside and on the outside. Think curb appeal, should you decide to sell your home at some point in the future you want your home to look the part for potential buyers. First impressions count, so think about all the details, including your door.
