Door Alignments

Improve Security And Longevity With Proper Door Alignment

A rubbing door is often misaligned, which is a problem that should be fixed right away. If you neglect to have a rubbing door fixed, it could end up damaging the locking mechanism wherein you will need to pay even more to have the door repaired. Maintain the security and longevity of your doors with the help of a physical security specialist at The Flying Locksmiths.

If you need to pull up on a door in order to get it to close properly, it is possible that your building has settled over the years, causing misalignment of the frame. Misalignment of doors puts additional strain on hinges and locking mechanisms, putting them at great risk of failure or more susceptible to forced entry.

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.
