How do you know whether it’s time to replace your door?
This is a great question, and it applies to your front entry door along with all the other exterior and interior thresholds. We’ll cover some of the warning signs of door damage or deterioration, and offer our effective replacement services.
Common Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Door
- It’s way harder to open your door now.
- You’re getting warm or cold drafts.
- The door is loose at the hinges.
- There are obvious cracks, scratches, and other superficial damages.
- You notice moisture damage such as wood rot.
- You’d like to add more style and beauty with a modern replacement door.
These are just a few of the many reasons folks in Chicago call us for new doors. That part about wood root is especially important. Sometimes that problem becomes so extensive that we have to replace everything, including the framework. Otherwise, you risk suffering further deterioration, to say nothing of mold/algae problems, and lost insulation.
Perhaps the number one complaint (regarding old doors) is the sudden spike on one’s energy bill. We get both hot and cold weather around here, so you can’t tolerate exterior doors that let in hot/cold air, forcing your HVAC equipment to compensate.
Many Outstanding Replacement Door Options Available
There’s so much you can do with front door replacements nowadays. Exterior doors can help you improve energy efficiency, boost curb appeal, limit outdoor noise, and provide reliable home security. Our installation crews at All Star Products regularly install outstanding doors from popular brands such as ProVia, Albany Door Company, and Pella.
If it’s a solid front-entry door you’re after, then the ProVia selections are top-notch. These are doors made from steel, cedar, and other sturdy materials that will hold up against intrusion and protect you during inclement weather. You can also browse ProVia’s door selections for some of the most ornate designs, heavy-duty glass window adornments, and other modern fixtures.
Don’t forget about patio doors and those for every other area around your home. Perhaps that sliding door leading to your backyard is letting in a bunch of cold air, and it gets stuck on its tracks all the time. We can help you replace that with something more modern and easily accessible for seniors, children, and everyone in between.
Other Exterior Items That May Need Replacing
All Star Products also helps Chicagoland homeowners address problems with their siding and windows. It’s common for folks to focus on windows and doors together because they deteriorate in some of the same ways, and contribute to rising energy costs. One of the first things you should do, when you lose energy efficiency, is to conduct a home audit to determine whichever components are allowing air intrusion and other problems.
Your home’s siding is another area that can contribute to higher costs, water intrusion, and even mold overgrowth throughout your home. If it’s degrading, you’ll see signs such as loose boards, holes, chipped paint, wood rot, and warping. Fortunately, siding installation is one of our core competencies at All Star Products, so we help you with repairs or replacement options.
