4 Door Problems You may Encounter During WinterJanuary 11, 2018
The cold won’t be the only problem you deal with during winter. This time of year may also cause problems to your home’s doors. Identifying these issues allows you to make repairs or replacements, or find long-lasting solutions.
The Door Doesn’t Close Properly
Your home’s temperature will drop if the door doesn’t close properly. This is a common problem that homeowners encounter during winter. This means your door doesn’t fit properly within the frame, and the jamb is slightly leaning to the right or left.
A Draft Enters the Room
Patio doors that have gaps allow cold air to enter, even if you close them properly. This decreases the temperature of a room to a level that you may not want. This also affects the overall insulation of your house as there is a temperature imbalance.
Wet, cold and snowy weather has a negative effect on the color of your door. Long exposure to the elements leads to the fading and discoloration of patio doors.
Door Binds in a Corner
The cold and changing weather causes your door or its frame to contract and expand. This may lead to it getting stuck sometimes. The door may also pull down from the top, making it difficult to open or close.
