DeGraff Construction is a company that specializes in a wide range of remodeling and handy man work, including door installation. As such, we often get asked about the best time to tackle this type of home improvement project. You may initially think of spring or summer, and, while they are both popular seasons for home renovations, winter can actually be an excellent time to consider replacing your doors. Here are three reasons why:
Improved Energy Efficiency
Cold drafts and heat loss are common problems during the winter months, and old or poorly sealed doors can be a major contributor to these issues. By upgrading to a new door with better insulation and weatherstripping, you can significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home and reduce your heating bills.
Winter is a time when burglaries and break-ins tend to increase, as thieves take advantage of the shorter days and longer periods of darkness. A new door with a high-quality lock and sturdy construction can provide an added layer of security for your home and give you peace of mind.
During the winter months, the air inside your home can become dry and stagnant, leading to health issues such as dry skin, respiratory problems, and static electricity. A new door with a tighter seal can help to prevent drafts and maintain a consistent indoor temperature, which can lead to increased comfort for you and your family. Additionally, a door with good insulation can help to reduce noise pollution from the outside, making your home a more peaceful and relaxing place to be.
So if you’re thinking about door replacement, don’t wait until the warmer weather arrives. Take advantage of the opportunity to upgrade your home and improve its energy efficiency, security, and comfort during the winter months.
