The first impression of your house is your entrance door. It’s the first thing you see when you get home from work and it’s the first thing your guests see.
We all want to be proud of our homes, and this starts on how it looks from the outside. If you know your entrance door isn’t working or looking as it once did, maybe you should start considering replacing it, and at PBS we might be able to help you out!
How to tell if your door needs replacing…
It may not be necessary for you to replace your front door, unless you are looking to change your home style, but we can help you with some signs that may point out that your door is not functioning correctly:
Opening and closing
One of the most effective and easiest way homeowners can tell whether or not their current entrance door needs replacing is by how it opens and closes.
Do you have any large gaps between the frame and the door? Is it an effort to close it? Does the door sash stick when pushed? Some of these problems can be solved, sticking is due to a larger problem,warping.
Old entrance doors are prone to warping, it means that when they are exposed to extreme weather conditions or are being constantly used, they have the potential to expand. Which eventually will cause gaps between the door and its threshold. Modern doors from PBS use PVCu that doesn’t have these attributes, granting that the new door will have a longer lifespan and will be highly functional.
Weathered and peeling
If your current door is cracked, peeling or weathered it may actually need a bit more than just a brush of paint. Your door is susceptible to harsh weather elements on a daily basis, as it’s exposed to cold, heat, sun, rain and wind. Every old entrance wooden door will eventually need to be replaced. If you think yours can’t be repaired or fixed, you should start looking for options to replace it with one of our PVCu or composite doors.
Are you feeling draughts in your home?
If you aren’t planning in renovating your home but you feel a draught or you are suddenly feeling regular cold spots in your home, replacing your old door with a new one may be a solution. The threshold, frame and door jamb contribute with the functionality of your front door, and these can also become faulty overtime.
