Historic homes are often filled with architectural charm and original details that can make a homeowner feel as though they’ve stepped through a time capsule. Whether you’re looking to ultimately restore your historic home through preserving it’s original craftsmanship, update old features with new materials that match, or completely renovate your historic home — Fisher Lumber can help. As your one-stop shop for lumber, Anderson windows, and replacement doors we can seamlessly update your historic home. Read on to learn about a few signs that may indicate your historic home needs replacement doors.
You Should Consider Replacement Doors if Your Doors Lack Functional Features
For homeowners living in historic homes that contain original doors, you might’ve noticed that your original doors have a keyhole-based locking mechanism. While this keyhole-based locking mechanism can appear charming, it is useless without having access to the original key that enables you to lock your doors. Without any ability to lock your interior doors, you might find yourself with a lack of privacy in your own home. You should consider opting for replacement doors to provide your house with a simple necessity – doors that lock!
Visible Damage to Your Doors
For doors that appear to have visible damage, you definitely will want to consider investing in replacement doors. Replacement doors can help update your home’s exterior curb appeal, and the overall aesthetics of your interior design. Nothing is more unsightly than a door that hasn’t stood the test of time and is visibly damaged, or even has window panes that are damaged. Instead, opt for replacement doors to increase the beauty of your historic home.
Weak Safety Features
It’s critical to protect your home with an exterior door that has strong structural integrity and safety features. If your historic home’s current doors lack updated security features (like updated locking mechanisms, key pads for entry, and doorknobs that are secure) then it’s time to update your doors. Replacing your historic home’s doors with new ones from Fisher Lumber is a seamless, affordable process. Contact Fisher Lumber today for more details!
