Like your siding, windows and roofing system, your entry door protects your home from the harsh elements. And like the aforementioned exterior components, it needs to be replaced immediately if it is severely damaged or has already seen years of use and abuse. You might think about waiting for warmer and more pleasant weather to arrive, but having it replaced in winter has its unique advantages. Here are some of them:
Easier Problem Detection
When you call your home improvement contractor for a door inspection in winter, they can determine whether it needs to be replaced right away or not. The cold outdoor air passing through your closed door might indicate a potential leak, which the professionals can notice almost immediately.
The demand for door replacement or any home improvement project increases during spring and summer. This only means one thing—competition among homeowners for the services of roofers and door installers. Fortunately, this won’t be a problem when you schedule yours in winter. The professionals won’t have a lot on their proverbial plate, allowing them to give your project the full attention it deserves.
No longer is door replacement a project that’s deemed impractical during the winter months because contractors follow certain precautions when working in such conditions.
Off-season door replacement offers you the chance to take advantage of potential savings. Since contractors are not usually busy during this time of the year, they come up with great offers for the slow business to pick up a bit. It also puts you in the position to negotiate for favorable deals.
