Beware of older doors

Old doors (as well as windows) can be inefficient for several reasons. For example for structural reasons, because they are built without the right criteria. Or because they are installed incorrectly, in a hole that is too large that inevitably lets air pass through.

Old doors, then, are usually more dilapidated than a newly purchased window frame. Without proper attention, even the most resistant window will wither over time. In our door maintenance guide, then, you can learn some secrets to keep your fixtures in shape.
Insert an additional entry door

Many homeowners see their doors as an important part of their home and want to keep them for as long as possible. The good news is that there are many reasons to keep your door in good shape, including greater energy efficiency, versatility, and security. But all the attention of the world may not be enough, if you are in an area that is very exposed to atmospheric agents.

In these cases, then, one could consider adding an additional door (provided that the type of building allows it). An investment of this type can help you increase energy efficiency, and can also add more space to your home, in fact creating a sort of additional entrance area.

Measure the doors correctly

Before replacing the doors, obviously, it is necessary to measure the hole where the new frame will be installed.

Generally speaking, when it comes to measuring the hole in doors, there are two possible situations you can find yourself in. The first is the one where you don't have the door frame. The second is the one in which you already have a frame and you want to work on it.

The important thing to understand is that measurement is a procedure that deserves a lot of attention. The key point to understand is that just one attempt is not enough. Just like a tailor does with a new suit, you need to act with extreme caution. In our guide to measuring interior doors we explain how to do it.
