When your door’s life has run its course, don’t be afraid to replace it. With an ROI of at least 60%, new doors are a safe investment. They’re also a cost-effective way to increase your home’s value, aesthetic, energy efficiency, and safety. But don’t replace it with just any old door. Make sure you’re replacing it with a door of quality. Here at Blue Springs Siding & Windows, we only carry the best in the business. Here’s our guide to finding the perfect replacement door for your Kansas City home.
Determine Which Door Needs Replacing
There are several sure-fire ways to determine whether or not your door needs replacing. First, think back and ask yourself how old your doors are. If they are over 20 years old, you won’t need to do an inspection. We recommend you replace those doors regardless of condition because new door technology has come a long way in increasing your home’s safety and energy efficiency.
If your doors are a bit younger, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are there cracks or gaps between the door and the frame? If so, thermal retention and air infiltration rates go down while energy bills go up. Water and bugs get into the home via these gaps causing costly damage to the house.
- Is any part of the door or frame bowing or bending? If so, the door’s structural integrity could be compromised.
- Do they open, close, and lock properly? If they don’t, your door most likely won’t be able to protect against the elements or break-ins effectively.
Choose Your Door Installation Company
Putting in a new door takes a little more skill than one might think, specifically if the frame is damaged. Instead of trying it on your own or hiring the first company you find online, consider Blue Springs’ Siding and Windows.
