Why Do I Need High-Quality Doors for My Home?

Replacing any door will cost you money in labor and materials. However, the door might not yield the expected return on investment if you choose poor quality.

On the other hand, selecting a high-quality door will help you in the following ways:

Protect Your Home

The door is the first line of defense in any home. You need doors that secure your home from intrusion to protect your family and possessions. Old and dilapidated doors offer an opportunity for burglars and intruders to gain illegal access to your home.

Reduce Energy Costs

One of the main reasons for considering a replacement door is having drafty, energy-inefficient doors that allow conditioned air to escape out of your home or unconditioned air to permeate into your house. Homes lose anywhere between 10% and 20% of heat through external doors and windows, which affects the overall energy efficiency of your home.

As such, you should consider replacing your doors with high-quality modern doors manufactured using modern materials such as insulated wood, fiberglass, or other low-emissivity composite materials. Such doors also combine tighter seals and integrate glazed glasses that enhance the energy efficiency of the doors.

Replacing your doors with new, more energy-efficient doors will reduce the overall energy consumed through air conditioning. In turn, reducing energy consumption helps you save on heating and cooling costs by up to 50%. Importantly, it reduces your environmental footprint.

Weather Resistant

Modern doors are constructed of new materials that are durable and resistant to the elements. Materials such as vinyl, glazed glass, fiberglass, and some traditional materials such as treated solid wood will last years without performance deteriorations occasioned by constant exposure to rain, solar tradition, wind, and other weather elements.

Increase Your Home’s Value

The combination of improved energy efficiency, spruced-up aesthetics, improved security, and weather resistance translates to an increase in property value. When you take your property to the market, new, modern and secure doors allow prospective homebuyers to worry less about their security and energy efficiency, which can help to match or beat your asking price.

What is the Installation Process for Spartanburg Replacement Doors?

Step #1: Consultations and Planning

The first stage of the process is the consultation meeting. The client meet our professional team, designed to discuss all aspects of the project. During the meeting, you’ll state their desired goals and outcomes from the project, including budgetary goals, design, cleaning and maintenance, and much more. Additionally, all the questions the client has are answered.

Thereafter, decisions are made regarding their door type, style, material, color, and other elements to consider. The timelines and dates of the projects are defined.

Step #2: Project Planning

Once all the decisions have been made, we move on to the planning stages in preparation for the actual installation. At this stage, we take precise measurements of the door(s) to ensure we order the right products of the right sizes.

Thereafter, we purchase everything that’s necessary for the project. This includes the doors, the caulking, paint, trims, insulation (typically expanding foam), and door hardware.

Another aspect of planning is to notify any concerned party of the intended Spartanburg replacement door project. We work with our clients to notify the homeowner’s association if necessary. Some HOAs require homeowners to notify of any changes that affect the house’s exterior, including doors. Additionally, we work with homeowners to notify the alarm company if they have one.

Step #3: Preparing for Installation

During the preparation stage, we ensure we have all the supplies needed to complete the projects. Importantly, we double-check the doors to ensure they are the right fit for your home. This includes ensuring the door is pre-hung or slab, depending on whether the new door requires new framing or we’ll reuse the old frame.

We also prepare the project area by moving furniture and removing decorative items near the door. We also cover anything that we cannot move and tarp the floor.

Step #4: Installation

  • Removing the Old Door and Dry-fitting the New One – On the installation day, we start by removing the old door. In projects that use pre-hang doors, we also remove the door frame to create space for the new frame. Before installing the new door, we dry fit to ensure the door will fit.
  • Preparing the Frame for Installation – After the dry fitting, we weather-seal and caulk the bottom of the opening in preparation for installing the threshold. We then caulk the studs and use a premium weather sealant to cover all the exposed exterior surfaces. We then install the hinges, screwing them into the door frame. The screws are driven through into the jamb to the wall.
  • Installing the New Door – We install and level the new door. We use shims to assist us in leveling the door horizontally and vertically. A door should be leveled to ensure it opens and closes properly. Part of leveling is to ensure the hinge side of the door has an even gap. When everything checks out, we fasten the door to the hinges. We then check the lock-side gap and, if necessary, shim it to make the fit tighter.
  • Fitting Door Hardware – The next step is to install door hardware. We install the handle/knob and lock system. We then make sure everything works and make adjustments where necessary.
  • Insulate Around the Door and Install Door Trimming – To ensure your new door is not drafty, we seal the door jambs with expanding foam to seal any gaps and cracks surrounding the new door. Importantly, the sealant seals the shims in place. We finish off by installing the trimmings.

After we complete the installation process, we inspect everything and reinstall the alarm system if you have one. The final touches, such as painting, are performed after the caulking and sealants are completely set, which is typically a day after installation.

Throughout the process, our team prioritizes everyone’s safety and the quality of workmanship. Our team works with homeowners and their families to ensure the entire replacement door process is undertaken without instances of injuries and damage.

Aside from ensuring kids and children are secured from the job site, our team of door installers wear all the personal protective equipment to ensure a safe working environment. We tarp the interior and exterior of your house around the door. The work area is continuously cleaned and vacuumed to minimize dust transfer into your home.

Typically, installing replacement doors can take anywhere between four and 8 hours, depending on the complexity of the task. Generally, the expected timeline from consultation to installation is between 20 to 30 days, depending on the lead time necessary for the fabrication of your door.
