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.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."

"My new windows look great!! I can feel the difference in my house and my furnace is no longer staying on constantly. My installation crew was polite, tidy and speedy. It couldn't have went better"

"From start to finish everyone we dealt with were total professionals.. The project process was well communicated, the installers did an excellent job and the windows - I’m so excited about our new windows! They look great. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am looking forward to cleaning them. And it was obvious immediately that the insulation is vastly better than the old windows. Also, I am just a customer who gets nothing for this endorsement. I just appreciate good service and an excellent product. This company knows how to do it right."
