Common Problems with Doors During Winter

Winter DoorsWinter weather can wreak havoc on many different parts of your home, leading to headaches that need to be dealt with in a timely matter. Your home’s exterior doors are especially susceptible to winter conditions, as moisture and extreme temperature swings can lead to a variety of issues.

Here are some of the more common door problems that can occur during the winter months:

Loose Screws

Temperature and humidity changes can lead to loose screws, which, in turn, can result in a door that sags or no longer fits properly in its frame.

Swelling & Sticking

This issue is especially common for wooden doors, which expand and contract due to temperature changes and can swell when affected by moisture.

Air Drafts

When a door no longer fits perfectly in its frame, you’ll likely lose the airtight seal that prevents the cold outside air from infiltrating your home.

Iced-Up Locks

If ice forms in your lock and prevents the use of your keys, you may have to use a spray deicer.

Fading Colors

Extreme winter conditions can cause a door’s paint job to fade, especially on a wooden door.

There are a variety of steps you can take to winter-proof your home’s doors, such as replacing old weather stripping and sealing the finish. However, some of these issues are directly related to the quality of your existing doors.
