4 Door Problems You may Encounter During Winter

January 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.

4 Door Problems You may Encounter During Winter

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

Entry 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.

Fading Color

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.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.
