Should I replace my doors? What you need to know...

  1. Most doors have wood frames that are prone to rot when exposed to weather.  This often is first seen as black staining of the paint at the bottom of the wooden door frame or trim, which indicates it has been wet and is starting to decay.  In little time, this situation can lead to rotted door frames and trim.  Given enough time, this problem can easily extend beyond the door and into the house's structure. The Cure: We offer wood frames that are guaranteed not to rot, as well as composite frames that can't rot. Our thresholds contain only rot proof materials.  While not expensive upgrades to a basic door, these are the things that give lasting value to our customers.

  2. Older wood doors may have sagged and settled out of square, often a result of glue joints that have lost their integrity. This allows the door to drag at the bottom and sometimes the side as well.  In some cases, the lock may no longer align with its strike. The Cure: We can replace your doors with wood, steel, fiberglass, or aluminum clad doors, to give the balance of looks, durability, and ease of maintenance that is right for you.

  3. Doors sold before the 1980s seldom had insulated glass or were insulated themselves. Older sweeps and weather stripping may be worn, damaged, or missing.
    The Cure: Nearly all modern doors utilize insulated glass and efficient weather stripping. We can add Low-E glass, blinds between the glass, highly insulated doors, and many other enhancements to increase your comfort and energy efficiency.  

  4. We often see where poor installation techniques make for doors that do not operate well, particularly in newer homes. These doors may be installed in a way that does not secure them to your home's framing, or they may have just been installed out of square.  They may have been installed in a way that allows water or air to penetrate around the frame and into your home. The Cure: Let our professional, employee (NOT contractor) installers show you why they are proud of their work!  They will install your new door the right way, properly anchored to your house's framing, for secure, solid, lasting operation. Our installations are guaranteed to give that "just right" operation, air and water tightness, and proper lock alignment and clearance for security and efficiency.  Our attention to detail ensures your lasting satisfaction!
