Is the front door to your home squeaking every time you open it? Do you feel a draft in the wintertime? Maybe it’s time for repairing your door with some carpentry services. If you do not know when it is time to repair your door, or you have been overlooking these issues, here are some tips from our handymen on when you should have your door repaired.
The most obvious sign a door needs repaired or tuned up is if it squeaks, creaks, doesn’t stay shut, or gets jammed while opening or closing. A noisy door can be fixed if the hinges are oiled, or if they are distorted and the door is uneven, the hinges can be unscrewed and replaced easily to have a quiet door. Replacing your door handles and locks will help if your door does not stay closed or if the lock jams. If you need help with any of these tasks, nothing is too small to ask for professional carpentry services’ help.
Your door may warp overtime due to age or exposure to moisture. This may cause the door to stick while opening or not closing correctly. This is when a door will need to be replaced. If you have smaller damage like knicks, scratches, dents, or stains, a nice coat of paint can make your door look brand new. To get a clean look, be sure to remove the door from its hinges and set it up on sawhorses outside or in the garage to evenly paint all sides.
If you feel a draft coming in, purchasing, and installing a simple weatherstrip can save you a lot of money when it comes to heating and maintaining the temperature in you house during any season.
If your door is outdated or in need of repair, don’t hesitate to call your local handymen. Carpentry services are available to help you no matter what size the project. It’s a good time to see how the doors in your home can benefit from these services.
