When is Door Replacement Needed?
Some Signs to Look For
Under the right conditions, doors may last several decades before it’s time to replace them. However, extreme weather, improper installation, and a variety of other factors can create problems requiring more immediate attention. If you’ve noticed that you can no longer shut your door or that it has swollen and begun to rot, it is time to replace your door. Most often this will happen when water that hasn’t properly drained from the roof splashes back onto your door.
From Hinges to Door Jambs
Learning the Parts of a Door
While doors can be made from almost any material, they all come with a few standard features. It is important to familiarize yourself with each part of the door so that you can readily identify any problems.
Doors sit inside a frame, or door jamb, that is nailed or screwed to walls to the house itself. The door attaches to the frame via screwed hinges that allow the door to swing open and closed. The door itself may be made entirely of one material or contain a small window, or windows, of its own. Each door may be opened with either a knob or a lever style handle, and a variety of locks may be added. Exterior doors will also have some kind of weather stripping along the bottom of the door.

Expert Installation and Fitting
John Moore’s Door Replacement Process
Once you have scheduled an appointment with John Moore, we will arrive to take measurements, conduct a consultation, and discuss customization options for your exterior door. We work with a variety of suppliers to match each customer with their ideal door, and after taking into account budget, the space we’re working with, and your unique needs, we’ll help you narrow down your choices to just a few doors. Once you’ve selected your door, we’ll place the order and return when your new door is ready.
When we return with your new door, we’ll first unscrew and remove your old door and frame and conduct any resizing or adjustments needed before adding the new door and frame. While many doors can be added in a single day, any work that requires resizing may take longer.
