It is their introduction to your style and taste as a homeowner. Wouldn’t it be a shame if your first impression was less than stellar?
Because your home’s front door is often the most commonly used, it requires some door maintenance to stay in great shape. Entry doors must be tough enough to withstand wind, rain, scorching sun, and would-be intruders, yet handsome enough to make a good first impression. Unfortunately, meeting those needs is a tall order for many front doors. Over time you may notice that your entry door sticks, creaks or does not close as easily as it did when it was first installed.
Because a house is usually constructed from organic material, it is susceptible to wear and tear. In addition, wood doors expand and contract through changing weather. After your house has “settled” you may need to make simple adjustments to make sure your entry door is still plumb in the doorway and can easily open and shut.
