Signs You Need to Replace Your Doors

Most homes have two main entry doors – one in front and one in back.  However, many older Florida homes were built with more.  In addition to connecting you with the outside of your home, these doors also serve as a protective element.  V&V Windows specialists have a question for you.  How long has it been since you looked at your doors and assessed the condition of them?

Consequently, knowing when to replace them is an important concern for Floridians, especially with hurricane season approaching.  Here are 4 signs that indicate the need for replacing your doors with impact-resistant doors:

  • You feel a draft – when you walk past any of your entry doors, are you feeling a draft? If you are, it’s time to consider replacing them.  Gaps between the door and frame are going to develop over time.  Although you can use some type of stopper, this is only a temporary fix at best and won’t help to maintain a comfortable interior temperature.  Let V&V Windows solve your dilemma with high-quality impact doors.
  • Your doors are cracked or look warped and weathered – the appearance of your exterior doors can make or break your home’s curb appeal.  If they’ve developed cracks or are warping and showing signs of weathering, it’s time to have our specialists assess their condition and determine if it’s time to replace them.  The ideal solution is hurricane impact doors manufactured with impact-resistant glass. This will prevent all of the weathering and breakage issues that you find with other standard doors. 
  • Your doors are squeaking or sticking – this is usually caused by aging and can get irritating over time.  It can also be a result from moisture damage to the wood and from worn out hinges.  As time passes, the problem will continue to worsen.  When it gets to the point where opening and closing the door becomes a struggle, it’s time to replace it with impact doors from V&V Windows.
  • You and your family don’t feel safe – your home is supposed to be your sanctuary; a safe haven where you don’t have to worry about intruders in the middle of the night.  If you feel that your doors are no longer protecting you from what’s outside them, it’s definitely time to replace them with something that’s resistant to a forced entry.  Our impact doors provide an added layer of security and protection against criminals.
