Steps Involved in Installing an Entry Door
Blog | S&S Remodeling Contractors
When it comes to home improvement projects,
Installing a new entry door can provide a significant impact on the overall look and feel of your home. Not only does it improve your home’s curb appeal, but it can also increase your home’s energy efficiency and security.
At S&S Remodeling, we believe in providing our clients with the best products and services. That’s why we use Provia doors for all of our entry door installations. Provia offers a variety of options that cater to the unique needs of each homeowner.
But how exactly is an entry door installed? Here’s a step-by-step guide:
Step 1: Measurement and Ordering
Before anything else, the measurements of the existing door should be taken, and a new door should be ordered. Provia offers a variety of options when it comes to entry doors, including Legacy, Heritage, and Signet lines. Each line has its unique features, allowing you to choose the door that fits your needs best.
Step 2: Removal of Old Door
Once the new door arrives, the first step is to remove the old door carefully. The removal process can vary, depending on the type of door being removed. Our team takes care to remove the old door without causing any damage to the surrounding area.
Step 3: Frame Preparation
Before the new door can be installed, the frame should be prepared. The frame should be checked for any damage, and any necessary repairs should be made. The frame should also be levelled, and the opening should be squared to ensure the new door will fit correctly.
Step 4: Installing the Door
Now that the frame is prepared, it’s time to install the new door. Our team ensures that the new door is centred and levelled, and the hinge side is attached first. Once the hinge side is secure, the remaining sides are installed and checked for proper fit.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
Once the new door is installed, the final touches can be added. The weatherstripping and threshold should be installed to prevent drafts, and the hardware should be attached, including locks, handles, and hinges. The door should be checked for proper operation, including opening, closing, and locking.
At S&S Remodeling, we understand that installing a new entry door can be a significant investment for homeowners. That’s why we ensure that each installation is done correctly the first time, with attention to detail and quality craftsmanship.
