Are you in the market for replacement doors, but unsure whether to do the door installation yourself or hire a professional? Below we’ve made a list of things you should know before installing your new replacement or custom doors yourself so that you’re ready and prepared to face the job.

Assessing Size

First and foremost, it’s important that you choose a door that fits. This means making sure to get exact measurements so that your door fits within your door frame without leaking air or light, but also without damaging your floors or scraping up your frame.

Customizing Features

After you’re certain you know what size door you’re looking for, it’s important to assess what you need most out of that door. Do you have drastic temperature changes that require energy efficient material to ensure better climate control and thermal performance in your home? Do you have severe storms that require a durable exterior to withstand harsh winds or rains? Are you looking to sell you home in the future, and wanting to upgrade your home’s curb appeal? These are all questions you should answer before you start shopping for a new door, as these will determine the style, material, and cost of your replacement door.

Getting Peace of Mind

Finally, when replacing your home doors, it’s important to consider if the benefits of going the DIY door route truly outnumber the benefits of hiring a professional contractor. While installing your door yourself might save you a few hours of labor expenses, when you choose to go with a certified contractor like Armorvue Windows & Doors to help replace your doors, you can rest easy knowing that the job is being handled by a skilled professional, and that your new door will be covered by an installation warranty.
