Rockwood MI may be a little city but it’s full of life, electricity and excitement. One of its beautiful attractions is the Detroit River Light Station, a U.S. Coast Guard Lighthouse located on the river. According to people in the housing industry, it’s a good time to buy a house there now, as the average annual appreciation over the past 12 months was 7.7%. The best way to keep up that momentum is to make sure your property is well-maintained and taken care of. If your home is in this scenic city by the river and you’ve been looking at replacement doors, you’re on the right track. Whether it’s a part of a bigger home remodeling effort, or you just know it’s time to change up your doors, this is a great start. By contacting a licensed, insured and certified building contractor like Adkins & Sons, you’ll be investing in something that’s sure to keep your property value up. We’ve been inspecting, replacing, repairing and installing entry doors, wood doors, storm doors and patio doors for more than 25 years in the Downriver area.
Door installation can be tricky
Despite the fact that home improvement stores may tell you installing interior or exterior doors is easy, there’s more to it than you think, and here’s why:
- Most doors sold in big box home remodeling stores do not come in a standard size. Therefore, the one you buy off the shelf may not fit. If you try to pare it down, you could go overboard and then you’ll be left with a gap that will let a draft in.
- If the existing frame is bent or damaged, that means you need to take it down completely and re-frame the door, and that takes patience and precision.
- Do you know terms like “shimming?” What about hardware for your door? If it’s a wooden door, you’ll have to stain it, treat it, paint it and / or seal it…do you have the time and proper equipment for that?
- If you mis-measure, you’ll end up with a door that probably cost you several hundred dollars that you won’t be able to use.
All in all, it’s a good idea to hire door professionals to do the job. They will have the knowledge, expertise, experience, liability insurance and equipment needed to assess your doors and install new ones perfectly. All you’ll have to do is watch the magic happen.
