Everyone knows the importance of making a good first impression. Curb appeal depends on many factors - landscaping and siding, lighting and lawn care. The front door, the focal point of the facade, trumps the others in terms of importance. It also has essential daily functions to perform, keeping out the weather and intruders, while also resisting more wear and tear than most other components are subject to. Despite its prominence, we rarely think twice about the entryway. Perhaps we should give it our full attention.
Properly maintained, a quality door can last for decades, but there comes a time when it makes more sense to replace it than to repair it. Take a close look and ask yourself the following questions:
Is the front door weathered, scratched, or dented?
Are there cracks or breaks along the door's edges or within it's panel?
Does the door let in drafts?
Have you encountered difficulty getting the door to hang level on it's hinges?
Is it often a hassle to close and lock the door?
If you answered yes to any of those questions you might consider replacing your front door.
