4 MAJOR PROBLEMS YOUR WOODEN DOOR MIGHT FACE

Wooden doors can be beautiful for years after installation. But after a while, several costly and time-consuming problems may arise. Here are some examples:

4 Major Problems Your Wooden Door Might Face

Squeaking Door

This eerie and unsettling sound a wooden door makes means that it’s trying to tell you that its hinges are rusty or in a dilapidated condition. You can oil your door hinge as a patch solution, but the problem will still return after a while.

Warp and Bow 

Wood doors are more susceptible to warping or bowing due to moisture damage. This causes blemishes on the surface of the door frame.

Once your door begins to warp or bow, air and heat could easily escape or enter your home. Air leaks are common among old wood windows and doors.

That is why you must make sure your door or the frames of your windows are resistant to any seal and moisture damage as such issues increase your energy use and causes your bills to skyrocket.

Expansion or Swelling

This happens when your door frame doesn’t allow you to shut your door completely. Wood is actually a porous material, meaning that, without proper protection, it expands when exposed to humidity. Not only will you waste plenty of energy, but this problem also leaves your door vulnerable to mold formation and weakens the security of your home.

Sticking Door Frames

A hard-to-operate door is a door that should be replaced. Once you experience difficulty in closing and opening your door, you should call your trusted contractor to create a plan to restore it or to install a new door.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
