Is Your Front Door Winter Ready?

Prepare your home for winter by making sure that your front door is up-to-par

Winter is a busy season because of the holidays. There’s a lot of things to prepare for, but your front door should be one less stress. During the winter, and all-year-round, we depend on exterior doors to keep our homes safe and protected. Is your front door winter ready? To find out, continue reading! 

Is Your Exterior Door Weather Stripped? 

When you add new weatherstripping to your front door, it helps to keep out the cold, winter air. It’s a very straightforward task that even a beginner DIY-er can tackle and handle.

How Secure is Your Hardware?

Here at Fisher Lumber, not only do we offer exterior doors provided by several manufacturers such as Therma-Tru and Masonite, but we provide the hardware that will keep your front secure as well. If your hardware is not reliable or improperly secure, then give us a call. Your deadbolt shouldn’t catch the door jamb when you unlock and unlock your front door. It’s devastating to be outside using a lot of your strength to unlock your deadbolt during harsh winter weather conditions.  

Spruce Up Your Exterior Door With Some Paint

Winter is synonymous with appearing sunless. It gets darker faster, and usually, there are a lot of cloudy days. Overall, it can seem like a dismal season to some. To others, it’s a fantastic season because of the holidays. Brighten things up and get into the holiday spirit with a fresh coat of paint. Because an exterior door is typically the first thing that someone notices about a home, you want to make sure that yours is warm and inviting.


Adding to the point that winter can sometimes drab, painting your door along with decorating is the way to go. Wreaths add a pop to an exterior door and help your front door stand out from the other homes on your block. Nothing says “holidays” more than a poinsettia wreath. 

Replace Your Front Door If It’s Damaged

Come to our showroom if your door has damages that are beyond repair. We offer a variety of wooden, steel, glass, and fiberglass doors that you’re sure to love. Protect your home this winter and make sure that you have an exterior door that’s the perfect fit!
