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.

If you’re considering a new entry door for your home, let S&S Remodeling be your trusted door installers. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and see how we can transform your home’s look and feel.

    I called this company in order to have my roof replaced on a Wednesday (the week of a major holiday), and the work was started that Friday. The work was done quickly, at a good price, and I'm happy with our results. I'll definitely be calling these guys for my next project, as they have earned my trust, and my … read more appreciation.

    Julian was very helpful and Chris did an outstanding job installing my front door and repairing my siding. They were both responsive, punctual, and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer S&S Remodeling to family and friends. Thank you to the team for a job well done!

    S&S replaced a door in our daughter’s room that leads to a patio. They were extremely efficient, on time, and their communication was and is still excellent. I also felt that there were extra considerations taken during the initial consultation given this was for our baby’s room, which I really appreciated.
