Find Out Why You Need Replacement Doors
Learn the Signs of Failing & Outdated Door
As the primary entryways into your home, your exterior doors should perform in the capacities of providing security, energy efficiency, and beauty. However, doors do age over time just like anything else, which is why it’s important to keep an eye on their performance. Granted, their life can be extended with routine maintenance, but eventually they will need to be replaced. At Precision Home Products, we have a large selection of replacement doors that will instantly upgrade your home the moment they are installed. We want to ensure that your home is equipped with the highest quality exterior doors. Furthermore, we’ll help you identify when you need to replace the doors of your home so you can avoid negative impacts to your curb appeal, security, and energy efficiency.
Signs You Need Replacement Doors:
- Difficulty of Operation: Doors that have become difficult to open and close are generally in need of replacement. This is because the difficulty of operation usually means that the door is not closing securely enough to seal off air, which results in you losing energy. Furthermore, this could be a sign of your door or frame being warped or ill-fitting.
- Weather Stripping Inspection: The weather stripping is designed to prevent air and moisture from entering your home so if you can see daylight entering through the perimeter of your door, you are most likely having air and moisture come in too. Visible daylight through the perimeter is a sign that your weather stripping has become worn and it should be replaced.
- Energy Loss: Place your hand on the door during a hot or cold day to see if you’re losing energy through it. If you feel the outside temperature on the inside surface of your door, then it doesn’t have sufficient insulation inside of it. The course of action is to replace the door with an energy efficient one like those we carry at Precision Home Products, which is Energy Star® certified.
- Physical Damage: Signs like rotting, warping, rust, or any other significant damage are strong indicators that you need to replace your door. Damage to your door will reduce the value of your home and negatively affect its curb appeal.
