Problems that can arise with poor installation
Issues with Security
If a door is not installed properly, it may make it much easier for intruders to enter your home. Whether the door is not flush against the door mount or the locks are not lined up correctly, this gives thieves a chance to take advantage of the situation and easily enter your home.
An Invasion of Pests
If there is an improper fit, which can happen with an unprofessional door company, air gaps may be present. If there is any air flow between the door and your home, this gives way to an invasion of pests that can infest your home. It’s important to make sure that a licensed professional is there to make sure that the door is flush and sealed and that no pests will be allowed in.
Higher Energy Bills Because of Drafts
Many customers choose to install a new door to decrease their energy bills, increase the appeal of their front porch area, and increase safety. However, if a door is not installed properly, this means that air can get in and because of this, increased air conditioning and heating may be necessary, which will increase your energy bills.
Issues With Your Door Opening & Closing
This is yet another safety issue that can cause havoc if a door is not installed properly. Does your door not fit? Was it not measured before it was installed? Perhaps, it was not customized to fit, or the measurements were off? When there is an issue with opening and closing a door, it’s important to have an expert to assess what has happened and install a door properly that is functional without issues.
Extreme Damage to the Hinges & Integrity of the Door
The more and more you use your door when it has been installed poorly, the more damage there will be to the hinges. It will also cause issues to the integrity of the door over time leading to sooner replacements and more issues with drafts, air gaps and increased pests.
Besides the many advantages of working with a licensed and knowledgeable door installer, Today’s Entry Doors has door options that include bluetooth recognition, flexible security with digital keys, one-touch entry, customization and e-notifications as well as in-home integration.
