Look for the Warning Signs
How do you know if your door is mis-aligned and needs to be adjusted?
Easy, look for the warning signs! When a door is out of alignment, you may need to push or pull real hard to get it to close all the way. There may also be physical signs of rubbing, like tread marks on the frame or door itself. You may also hear the door rubbing and making a nose when it closes or opens. These are all signs that the door
is rubbing against the frame somewhere and creating a security risk for your home or business.
Maximize the Lifespan of Your Doors
By not properly maintaining or repairing your doors and frames, misalignment will add to future repair costs and reduce the lifespan of your doors too. While it may not seem like much of an issue now, the pressure is being placed on components of the door, that will cause miscellaneous failures on things like door closers, locks, hinges and the frame itself. Those repairs can get costly, the longer they go unattended. Being proactive to maintain the alignment of your doors reduces long-term costs and helps you get the most out of your investment.
