Replace Your Entry Door in Winter

Should you replace your entry door in winter

March 14, 2017

While some might be inclined to perform home maintenance and repairs during the warmer months, others understand the advantages of winter door installations. There has been some concern that sealants and adhesives are not suitable for use during cold weather. However, this is a common misconception, and there are special materials on the market that are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions.

One of the main advantages of performing a new door installation in winter is the fact that problems are that much easier to detect. So, if your old door doesn’t close properly or if you notice that your home is not as energy efficient as it should be, you might need to replace your front door. It’s not just about worn seals or air infiltration. It’s also about the type of door. Older doors are not necessarily as efficient as newer models with improved features. You might not notice these problems during the warmer months but, in winter, they certainly become more apparent. Air infiltration, for example, is far easier to detect during winter than in summer because of the significant temperature differences.

Another great advantage of winter door replacement is the fact that you are bound to get a great deal. All businesses are about supply and demand. When the demand becomes greater, the price can often follow. Window and door replacement companies often market their products by offering discounts. If you are able to wait and money is your main concern, then you may want to consider having your door installed in winter. As soon as the weather improves, the demand will increase again, and this means that they will no longer feel the need to offer financial incentives.

Winter door installations also allow homeowners to choose a date that suits them. Just like supply and demand, the demand will increase when the weather improves. This means that you will not be able to pick and choose your installation date. When the manufacturer has an abundance of orders, your door installation will be performed at the earliest convenience which may not be as convenient for you. In winter, the demand will not be as great which means that the installation team can afford to adjust their schedule to suit your needs.

Never underestimate the importance of planning ahead of time. Even if you noticed a problem with your door during the summer, you should still take the time to budget and shop for the perfect fit for your home. Remember, your front door will set the tone for the rest of your home, and it should make your guests feel welcome. By checking your doors on a regular basis, you will notice signs of wear or damage early. This means that you will have extra time to save and budget for a new, high-quality replacement door.

During the replacement, your home temperature will drop, and this is understandable. If this is of significant concern, you can close all the interior doors in your home so that you help reduce heat loss. A professional door installation team will work far quicker than somebody with little to no experience. They have the tools and experienced needed to get the job done fast.
