Door Systems at Verdi Home Improvements

Door systems at Verdi. As what feels like a long Winter has come to an end, Spring has begun! And with the warmer weather gradually returning, the sun can brighten up the look of your home completely. However, we know that the numbing cold, can leave lasting effects.

At Verdi, we want to tackle this! There are a range issues that can become apparent after Winter. For example, we often see that the aesthetics of your doors can be negatively impacted. Colour may fade on your door due to moisture, reducing its ‘new’ look, and causing your house to potentially look tired. For similar reasons, we often see that post-Wintertime, doors can easily warp. The significant changes in weather, overtime, can change the shape of your door, causing it to bend.

The weather is typically the main factor of damages to your home in Winter. Similar to warping, we often see the weather causing doors to rot. As the temperatures fluctuate, the change in humidity can cause fungi and other microbes to thrive. These then eat away at the material, chewing at the wood’s fibres. It’s important to catch this early, and there are ways you can spot rot which we will get into later.  

As well as changing the look of your home, problems that arise in Winter can also affect other characteristics of a door, such as its functionality, and security. We know this can be possibly the most important aspect to our customer’s homes. Cold weather can easily weaken the structure of your door system. For example, the latch can easily seize due to cold weather, leading to your door not being able to function as it should. Similarly, if your lock becomes too cold, it can snap! This can be a real security issue and shouldn’t be taken lightly. We strongly recommend resolving this issue as soon as possible.

So, how can you spot, and resolve these issues? Well, for some of these complications you can fix them yourself, and others it’s probably better for you to leave it to an expert. Say if you take the issue of rot. One way you can spot this early is from a cotton like substance appearing on the door. This is called Hyphae and indicates that rot is present. As for issues like security, like we said earlier, it’s important to sort these problems quickly. But we think it’s even more important to make sure that this is done correctly, and so could be worthwhile having a professional fix this. In the worst-case scenario however, a whole new system could be necessary.

 If this is the case, some doors we supply at Verdi could be perfect for your home. Our doors are all equipped with high technology, security features with a range of different aesthetic options.
