Solutions for Common Door Problems

Doors are essential for our homes, offering entry, exit, and space separation. However, they can also be sources of discomfort and security concerns when problems arise. Here are some common door problems and effective ways to address them, ensuring your home remains comfortable and secure all year round.

Creaky Doors

Problem: Creaky doors can be annoying and disturbing, especially at night.

Solution: Apply a silicone-based lubricant to the hinges and door handles. If the problem persists, consider replacing the hinges or door hardware. Our door hardware replacement services can provide a quiet and smooth operation.

Drafts Under Doors

Problem: Drafty doors can significantly increase heating bills, especially during cold winters.

Solution: While there are temporary fixes, such as sealing gaps with weatherstripping or a door sweep, youneed to address the root cause of the drafts. Consider replacing your old doors with new, energy-efficient models for a comprehensive solution. Our replacement doors are designed to provide superior insulation and a perfect fit, eliminating drafts and reducing energy costs.

Sticking Doors

Problem: Doors that stick or are difficult to open and close can be frustrating, especially in older homes.

Solution: Clean the hinges and door tracks and remove dirt or debris. Lubricate the hinges and tracks with silicone-based lubricant (avoid oil-based products as they can attract more dirt). Adjust or replace any damaged door hardware to ensure smooth operation.

Broken Locks

Problem: Broken or ineffective locks can compromise the security of your home.

Solution: Replace the locks or upgrade to high-security models. This enhances your home’s safety and improves its energy efficiency by ensuring the doors are tightly sealed when closed.

Warped or Damaged Doors

Problem: Warped or damaged doors can offer poor insulation and compromise the security of your home.

Solution: Consider replacing the doors with new, energy-efficient models that provide superior insulation and security. Our door replacement services offer a range of modern door options that match any home style.
