When to Replace Your Front Door

Is your front door in good shape? If it’s not, it may be time for replacement. Old front entry doors take away from the aesthetic of your home, but, more importantly, they leave your home less:

  • Secure
  • Energy-efficient
  • Comfortable

Do You Need Front Door Replacement?

Does your front entry door need to be replaced?

You should talk to a professional to determine if you need a new door, but there are some signs you can look out for on your own that indicate a replacement may be necessary. You may need a new front door if your door:

  • Is hard to open or close
  • Doesn’t operate the way it should (sticks, doesn’t latch properly, etc.)
  • Doesn’t lock correctly
  • Has moisture around the frame and/or by the bottom
  • Is cracking, warping, rotting or rusting
  • Has a lot of dents and dings

You may also need a new door if your energy bills have been increasing for no apparent reason and are higher than they were at the same time last year. An old, drafty front door can be a significant source of air leaks, so if your utility bills have increased, your old, inefficient door could be the culprit.
