How Long Do Front Doors Typically Last?

Front doors typically last for several decades, with proper maintenance and quality materials. Solid wood doors can endure 30-100 years or more, while steel and fiberglass doors often last 20-50 years. Factors like climate, exposure, and maintenance play a crucial role in determining a front door's lifespan.

What Takes Place During an Exterior Door Installation 

The process of installing an exterior door is very extensive, which is why it is also important to have professionals take care of it. First, the door opening needs to be precisely measured to ensure that the new door will be able to fit the entrance. The height of the door, the doorway width, and the door jamb width must be calculated carefully in case the new door is not the same size as the old one. Next, the door and frame must be test-fitted to make sure it is centered. 

Following this, experts will fit the trim and molding around the door, ensuring that if there is any siding, additional trim must be added. Any small gaps that are present must be thoroughly caulked and shimmed. Retaining brackets, anchor screws, knobs, and locks will be added. Finally, the jambs, hinges, and door handles should be tested to make sure they work properly. 

Things to Consider When Choosing Exterior Doors

When considering the right kind of material for an exterior door, it is helpful to consider which factors are most important. Every kind of material has its pros and cons that need to be weighed before making a decision. After all, this type of installment is meant to last a long time. Some kinds of doors may look attractive, but they require a lot of maintenance.

Other types of doors may be initially expensive to install, but they are built to last many years. Our experts can also discuss the installation length of different doors, since multi-paneled or multi-windowed doors may require more steps for setup. 

Exterior Door Materials

Since exterior doors are so visible, it is important that they look appealing. However, residents should also take into account the different lifespans for door materials. Wood is known for looking beautiful, but it does require refinishing and staining from time to time to stay functional. It can also succumb to termites, wood rot, and mildew. On the other hand, fiberglass has become increasingly popular since it is both very strong and good at saving energy. Metal can be an investment, but it is very durable.

Let our contractors help in explaining the distinctions between doors made from: 

  • Steel
  • Wood
  • Fiberglass
  • Glass panels
  • Iron 

Choosing the right material can make all the difference in increasing the entire property‚Äôs curb appeal. To make sure you are happy with the final product, reach out to Chriswell Home Improvements for more info.
