Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Front Door

Your front door is more than just a point of entry. It welcomes visitors and sets the stage for the rest of your home; it contributes to its energy efficiency and is part of your security. At Rusco, a door isn’t just part of your home’s structure—it’s a statement of style and protection for you and your family. But how do you know when it’s time to upgrade your door? We have some easy-to-spot signs that it’s time to upgrade your front door.

Visible Wear and Tear

Visible signs of damage—like cracks, dents, or warping—are not just unappealing; they could also compromise your home’s security and insulation. Exposure to the elements can cause wood doors to rot or warp, while metal doors might rust or corrode over time. If your door has damage that affects the structural integrity, it makes your home vulnerable to more intense weather damage and possibly intruders.  

Drafts and Poor Insulation

Maintaining your home’s interior temperature is vital to energy efficiency and lowering utility bills. If you feel a draft when your front door is closed, it is possible that the door seals are aged and no longer fit properly. Upgrading your door to one with properly fitting seals eliminates drafts and saves you money in the long run.

Difficulty in Operation

A door that sticks, creaks, or doesn’t close properly can be more than just a minor annoyance—it might also pose a security risk. Doors that don’t shut or lock easily are a hassle for you and easy entry for an intruder. If you have trouble closing or locking your front door when you enter or exit your home, it’s time to consider replacing it with a more secure door.
