One of the most important features of your home is the front door. While a well-designed entrance can enhance your property’s kerb appeal, a sturdy door is also an essential security feature to keep intruders out. Additionally, they can raise the market value and energy efficiency of your house. 

Given the significance of a front door, it is essential that you recognise the signs that indicate you require a replacement. So, keep reading to find out 4 signs you need a new front door.

The Glass Is Single Glazed

If the glass in your front door is single glazed, you are in dire need of a replacement. This is because single glazed glass is a poor insulator, which can make it difficult to heat your home in the winter. In turn, this can lead to increased energy bills and lower your property’s energy efficiency. As single glazing is highly conductive, you may even find that your home is too hot in the summer! Furthermore, single glazed glass is fragile, and provides little protection against burglars and intruders.

Your Front Door Doesn’t Close Properly

A front door which struggles to close properly can be incredibly dangerous. Whilst a faulty lock can be mended, there’s little that can be done to repair an ineffective door. As the front door is typically an entry-point for home break-ins, they need to be as strong and secure as possible. So, if it takes some effort for your door to fully shut, have a replacement installed as soon as possible.

There’s A Draught 

A draught coming from your front door can indicate several issues. Perhaps it was originally installed by a non-professional, or fitted poorly? Or maybe the seals are damaged? In any case, if you feel a draught, it’s time to have a new one installed. If the door was poorly fitted or damaged, it will be easy for intruders to gain access or break in. What’s more, as a draught indicates gaps in the seals, your home’s energy efficiency may be compromised.
