4 Major Problems Your Wooden Door Might Face

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.
