Most people would not dream of putting up with exterior doors that offer less than ideal function. Many of those same homeowners will put off replacing interior doors even if they no longer provide a reasonable level of performance. In fact, choosing to not replace a poorly functioning interior door paves the way for a lot of inconvenience. Here are some of the things that can happen and why replacing those older doors is one of the smartest moves the homeowner can make.
Nothing is quite as frustrating as trying to open a door that sticks. It may be a bedroom door, one of the sliding patio doors, or even the door to the kitchen pantry. Wherever the door happens to be located, it's preventing the easy access to some part of the house.
There are times when some adjustments to the doors will remedy the problem. If so, that's great! Unfortunately, there are other times when nothing will restore those older doors to their former level of performance. When that happens, the only real choice is to call a professional and start considering options for a door replacement. The cost of the purchase and installation will quickly be offset by the fact that there is no longer any need to struggle when the door needs to be opened.
At times, the culprit is not just a weakened or warped interior door. Over time, the doorjamb has deteriorated, shifted, or is now damaged to the point that something has to be done. What many homeowners don't realize is that attempting to replace a damaged doorjamb is not that much less than investing in a new jamb and door combination.
Opting for a complete replacement means that the door fits perfectly in the jamb and the framework. When closed, the door will be snug enough to prevent seepage. When the time comes to open the door, the movement will be quick and easy.
If not having to fight with a door every time there's the need to open and close it does not offer enough incentive, consider the impact that the old door is having on privacy. When that older door no longer fits into the doorframe properly, the lock may or may not offer the opportunity to prevent unwanted guests from entering the room. An ill-fitting door also allows more seepage around the edges. Those same points of seepage also allow sound to carry to the outside of the room, or make it harder to sleep when someone outside the door is talking.
The bottom line is that any windows & doors that no longer offer the best performance need to be replaced. Call a professional today and find out what it would take to remove that old door and replace it with one that offers all the benefits that the homeowner wants. Once the task is complete, life around the house will be a lot easier.
We just wanted to write to say thanks because the window quality is great and your helpful craftsman and professional installers made the entire experience wonderful. We only wish we could have this experience with all of our renovation projects.
We recently moved to our new house and needed to do some repairs and renovations. Your company was recommended by our very pleased friends. The windows look amazing and the installation job Richard did was first class.
It’s not everyday that I take the time to email a contractor… but my wife insisted! You guys did a great job and you kept it quick and quiet. We’ve got a newborn who sleeps often and your man did a good job not waking her up. Cheers.
We had done our share of research before finally deciding to go with your company and we must say that EuroSeal really had the greatest value. Guess we can chalk it up to working with a manufacturer.
It is our pleasure to say thanks for a great job done by your company. Luke and his colleague did a lovely job and they were very well mannered. It was a pleasure having them around.
We especially appreciated the help of your craftsman in choosing the appropriate style and colour for our first home. In the end, the windows look beautiful and I’m extremely happy with how easy they are to clean.
We damaged one of the external hinges a month ago, and your company’s prompt and efficient handling of the service call was impressive! We appreciate how quickly your company sent over a representative to fix the problem.
