Hopefully you'll never get burglarized or the Emergency serivices need to kick in a door to get Into your home quickly. All is not lost. As long as the door isn't damaged we can repair or replace the damaged frame around the door and have you secure once again.
Termites! Yes, those annoying little things love to devour wood products and even if you have a Steel or Fiberglass door you will generally still have a wood frame which may get eaten and we even have you covered here. On many occassion we have had to remove a beautiful door and re-hang It In a new frame with new trim and hardware and this can be done very simply also.
door repair and installation door threshold Door knobs, handles, locks and deadbolts dont last forever but can easily be changed and we can replace damaged hardware very simply.
If your having problems with locking a door or you want to change the finish / color of your hardware to match the style of your home we can do it.
Perhaps you want to upgrade to the latest in keypad style locks. We have you covered there also.
Thresholds, weather stripping and door bottom shoes also need replacing from time to time to help seal your doors properly and keep out the damp or cold.
Through the years Oak thresholds on raised foundation homes rot and crack and once that happens it's impossible to change them properly because they're attached to the door frame and removing the door frame is futile and pointless. You had just as well change the whole door.
I have listened to literally thousands of my customers that have a rotten sill or threshold but a beautifully perfect door and even though it may be coated in Latex water based paint now it still has a few coats of an Oil based product keeping it sealed.
You can easily spend over a $1,000 replacing the door and having to have the Stucco patched or have it replaced with today's Anodized Aluminum style thresholds in many different colors/finishes to match your flooring.
Years ago doors were painted with Oil based paints and over 25 years ago they were Lead based and even though these products were bad for almost everything on the planet they were great for sealing doors, decks and fences etc.
Homeowners would go ahead and have their homes painted every ten years or so which was fine but the oak Thresholds and Sills needed re-finishing every two years because the sun would beat down on them followed by the rain. Game over!
So what I do is carefully remove the rotten, cracked, damaged Threshold without moving the door or the frame and build up the sub-floor to your home so that I can Install a weather proof Aluminum Threshold and Sill cover.
There is a small amount of Stucco that needs replacing after I do my work but generally your painter will take care of that when he's re-finishing the door to make everything look like new.
There are still a lot of people that have older doors frames that have been protected and painted through the years and wish to replace the door only and not install a whole new pre-hung unit.
If your frame is good but the threshold looks terrible or is rotten or cracked ask me about replacing it and I will even give you an estimate for the door installation.
There are just as many people that have doors that are in good condition in older homes but once again the threshold or sill is terrible and the painter even says that he can fill and paint over it. It will look good until someone steps on it and then the filler starts to crack and fall out so get it replaced before they paint or I will even work with them to get the job done quickly and cleanly.
