Whether you have an old front door that you want to replace, or all your internal doors need refurbishment, door installation and maintenance is an important part of any household. Think about how often you use every door in your home on a daily basis - you certainly don't want to take its appearance or safety for granted.
And while new doors can be fitted into existing frames, it can sometimes be more beneficial to have both replaced at the same time. The main disadvantage of fitting a new door into an existing frame is that it’s not always a perfect fit, therefore you may have unsightly and unsafe gaps between the frame and door.
There could be a number of reasons why you're considering changing your doors, below we’ll outline some of the main reasons for door installation in more detail.
Damage due to burglary
If your house has been broken into, you’ll want to get your door fixed (and preferably made safer!) as soon as you can. This is usually done through your insurance and if you have been victim of a burglary, it could be time to consider a more secure option. In this case it’s usually best to have a new door and frame fitted.
Improving the security of your property
On a similar note, though you may not have been victim of crime already, it can be reassuring to know that your property is secure. This is especially true if it’s an older building or has been subject to a lot of wear and tear over the years. If your front door is starting to look a little worse for wear, it could be time to upgrade.
Fire door installation
If you rent out a property, it could be that your fire doors no longer meet regulation and you need new doors put in. If this is the case, it’s vital that you get this sorted as soon as possible. Alternatively, you may just want to ensure that your own home meets regulation and that you are safe.
Perhaps you’re looking to sell your house? Or maybe you’ve just moved in and it needs some work? Whatever the reason for refurbishing your property, door installation can be an important aspect. Firstly for safety reasons, but also for cosmetic reasons too. This is especially true if it’s a new house that you’ve just moved into.
