Feels Like Fall

by Stacey Simmons

Fall is upon us! Leaves are changing colors, pumpkin spice is everywhere and heaters are kicking on. With the changing season, it’s a great time to make sure your doors are swinging smoothly. Things to consider:

  • Weatherstripping: Is it still attached to the door? Is it fully covering any space between the door and threshold? Does it prevent the door from closing and latching?
  • Closers: Does the existing closer have enough power to fully close the door? Is the door near any HVAC vents that could affect air pressure?
  • Door clearance: Is cooler air sneaking through any gaps? Do hinges need to be adjusted? Would the door be better served by a continuous hinge?
