When is it Time for a Door Repair? Home Repair in Colorado Springs, CO

Professional Home Repair Services: When is it Time for a Door Repair? in Colorado Springs, CO & Surrounding Areas

Sometimes it is easy to overlook when something needs to be repaired on a door or for any home repair. A few dents, scratches, and more. But, after a while, whether the door starts squeaking too loud you might notice that it is time for a repair. Our handymen share some tips about home repair and how to know when it is time to repair the doors in your home, office, or business.

It’s time to repair your door when it is no longer working efficiently, is not weather-tight, or needs a fresh look in time for selling your house. Continue reading to see how to spot these needs for repairs.

  • If your door does not open smoothly, or opens with squeaks, this is an obvious sign of repair. Squeaking hinges can be removed and replaced to help maintain the peace and quiet, or to make the door open easier.
  • If your handle or locks jam or stick, it is important to replace the handles or have a handyman replace it for you.
  • A warped door may not close correctly or all the way, may get stuck while opening or closing. This can happen overtime by age, exposure to moisture, and damage done to the door.
  • On wooden doors, a fresh coat of paint can clean up years of dents, dings, scratches, and stains. Remove your door from the hinges and paint to reach the tops, bottoms, and sides of the door as well.
  • If your door is no longer weather-tight, or opens with a gap, consider a weatherstrip to help block out the air coming in and leaving your home when the air-conditioning is on, or when the house is heated.

With these points, you will know if it is time to replace the doors in your home. A door is meant to open easily and keep what you need in or out. As soon as this becomes challenged by warping, old hardware, and more, it is time for home repair.
