Doors get a lot of use, whether you’re coming and going constantly, or just passing through once a week to a specific room. It can be difficult to tell when the time comes to replace an interior door, especially when there is minor damage or an issue so small you barely notice it. Let’s discuss how to know whether to replace interior doors.
Signs of Door Damage
There are various signs that a door has been damaged, some of them visible, some of them not. A few of the most common signs include:
- Sticking or Jamming Doors
- Cracks or Splits in the Door Frame
- Warped or Uneven Door Surfaces
- Loose Hinges or Handles
- Rattling or Creaking Noises
If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to start considering whether to replace the door. If the door no longer swings on its hinges, there is no doubt that it’s time to replace it. If it is causing enough annoyance that you think it might be time for a change, a door manufacturer and installer can help you figure out what to choose.
Replacing the Door Hardware as a Stopgap
While some issues are too large to ignore, sometimes the driving motivation behind wanting to change your door is to give your home a fresh look. If that’s the case, you might want to consider replacing the door hardware as a stopgap measure. Replacing the knobs, hinges and any other visible hardware can give your home a much-needed facelift without the time, money, and effort required to replace the entire door.
