A front door replacement project must be given special attention because the front door is one of the most important parts of any home. It is considered by many to be the mouthpiece of a house due to the significant role it plays in welcoming people. In other words, it represents the first impression of your home and speaks volumes about you.
But it is not just about the aesthetic appeal of your home. Front doors also play a key role in the safety and energy efficiency of your home. This is why it is important to watch for signs of wear from continuous use, changes in weather and other factors like its lifespan which often indicate the need for a front door replacement.
1. Your door is single glazed
A single glazed door consists of a single pane of glass in its frame. If your entry door is single glazed then you need to think about replacing it because single glazed doors/windows lack insulation (less energy efficient), lack noise protection and are not sturdy. Replacing your single glazed door with a double glazed door is a significant upgrade and a great addition to your home.
2. Your door is drafty
Drafts are a huge sign you need a front door replacement. As your door ages, you might notice that the seals around it are shrinking or cracking. This explains why your home feels colder at night and is unable to keep heat in and noise out. Replacing your door will help solve these issues.
3. Difficult to open or close
Opening or closing your front door should not be a stressful exercise. If the movements of your entry door have become more and more restricted, then it is probably an indication you need a new door. This often comes as a result of frequent use over a long period of time and in some cases due to poor maintenance as well.
