We at Eastway Lock & Key, Inc. know that your property–whether it’s your home or your business–is important to you, and we want to help you keep it secure. When it comes to security, one of the most basic but most important safeguards is your exterior doors. After all, while higher-tech security tools such as alarms and cameras may help to catch potential intruders, a strong door can physically prevent them from gaining access to your space. Because of this, it’s important to keep your exterior doors in good shape, which will sometimes require you to get door repairs. In this article, our team will go over a few ways to tell whether your door needs to be repaired–if you notice any of these signs, we encourage you to give us a call as soon as possible.
- It’s Hard to Close Properly- One indicator that you need door repair is the door refusing to close properly, or only doing so with great difficulty. This problem is often caused by sagging hinges, which cause the door to hang crookedly in its frame, making it hard to close all the way–or to get open again.
- You Feel a Draft- Another thing that might alert you to a need for door repair services is a chilly draft or breeze from under the door. This means there is a gap between the door and the frame, and that in turn means that heat energy can more easily leak in and out of your building, making it harder to keep at a comfortable temperature.
- It Won’t Stay Locked- A third way to tell whether you need door repair services is to consider how effective your locks are. If you find that your door isn’t staying locked like it should, we encourage you to give us a call to have our experts inspect the problem. We can provide the solutions you need.
