Common Signs You Need Frisco Door Repair

Though many homeowners don’t realize it, doors are very complex units. A door that seamlessly opens and closes is the result of carpentry mastery. A considerable amount of precision goes into door installation to ensure that all components work together. The primary parts of this system are as follows:

  • Frame
  • Door jamb
  • Threshold
  • Hinge jamb
  • Strike jamb
  • Head jamb
  • Stop
  • Hinges
  • Strike plate
  • And lock set

There are more parts to a door, but it’s generally these components that affect how well a door functions. Because there are so many parts that influence functionality, it can be challenging to determine which part is at fault for a non-functional door. An experienced technician has the training to determine what the problem is and subsequently take the necessary steps to fix it. Wondering if it’s time for you to hire our skilled technicians for door repair? Some common indications that you may want to look for include:

  • Squeaky hinges
  • Sticking
  • Unable to latch (click shut)
  • Feeling drafts or seeing light between the panel and frame
  • Damaged appearance
  • Loose handles or knobs
  • Rattling when shut

All of the above issues can be repaired by a talented Frisco carpenter or handyman professional. If your problem isn’t on this list, it may instead be one of several signs you need door installation service rather than a repair service. If this is the case, it’s your lucky day—we do both!

Our Expert Frisco Door Repair Services

Whether you need an interior or exterior slab repaired, our service technicians have the knowledge to do it all. Our Frisco door repair specialists have an average of 10 years of experience in the handyman and carpentry industries, so you can guarantee they’ve successfully completed a project just like yours before.

Because our handyman professionals are true MacGyver-like types that can do it all, it would be impossible to outline all of the possible services we offer related to entry repair. That being said, we’ve outlined some of our most popular interior and exterior door repair jobs below to give you an idea of the depth and breadth of our expertise.

Interior Door Repair in Frisco, TX

There is a wide range of styles available to homebuyers today, but for the most part, we service interior slabs. Other types of interior doors we work on include:

  • Bi-fold
  • Barn
  • French
  • Hidden
  • Pocket
  • Commercial doors
  • And more!

Many basic slabs in homes are hollow-core, meaning that they are made out of a honeycomb-pattern composite material center, and a wood panel exterior. This makes them lightweight and affordable. Yours may also be solid core, solid wood, vinyl, glass, or metal.

Typically, the kinds of damage we see in interiors include squeaky hinges, sticking, and rattling. All of these issues are relatively simple to fix if you know what you’re looking for—which our dedicated technicians do!

Squeaky hinges. Squeaky hinges sometimes arise due to a buildup of dust, dirt, and other debris. Over time, lubrication on hinges can also diminish, leading to squeaking. We recommend wiping down hinges with a clean cloth and spraying a little silicone spray (or even some olive oil!) on the hinge to see if that solves the problem. Another common cause of a squeaky hinge is that it may have loosened over time. We can retighten your hinges the appropriate amount. If the screws are stripped, we’ll remove the slab, fill the holes with wood filler, and redrill new holes.

Sticking. Sticking doors arise due to temperature fluctuations, causing the wood to expand and contract, or incorrect installation. To repair this problem, we’ll need to determine whether there’s a hinge issue at play, a misalignment between the slab and frame, or whether the slab is simply too large for the frame. In the case of the latter, we’ll carefully file down the slab so that it seamlessly fits into its frame.

Rattling. A rattling door is caused by the opposite cause of sticking—a slab that is too small for its frame. Depending on the extent of the issue, we may build up your frame to close any gaps or apply weather-stripping to your slab to create a tighter fit.

Exterior Door Repair

While issues with interior panels can be a nuisance at most, issues with exterior entryways can become much more serious. Exterior units that don’t close or lock properly won't keep your family safe, and if not properly sealed, they can cause drafts and increase your energy bill. Though there’s a cost associated with the exterior repair, you could pay off this cost in no time by hiring our talented technicians to air-seal your home.

Entryway slabs that we commonly work on come in many different styles, some of which include:

  • Wood slabs
  • Fiberglass slabs
  • Steel slabs
  • Storm doors
  • Sliding glass patio doors
  • French patio doors
  • Screens
  • And more!

The types of projects and steps involved in exterior door repair vary considerably on a case-by-case basis, so we encourage you to contact us to get more information on exactly how we can repair your entryway.

To Repair or Replace?

Sometimes homeowners are faced with the choice between having their existing door repaired or replaced with something new. This decision often comes down to your personal goals for your space and your budget, but some of the factors you may wish to consider are as follows:

  • Life expectancies of your doors. If you have a slab or frame that is very old and outdated, you may want to consider updating it simply for aesthetic purposes.
  • Material. Some kinds of materials are more energy-efficient than others, which may influence your decision to repair or replace them. Additionally, you may want to bring more light into your home by replacing a fiberglass solid slab with a glass door.
  • Damage. The more damaged your door is, the more it will cost to repair. If you only need minor repairs, it may make more financial sense to put off panel replacement for another few years, but at a certain point, replacement may become the better option.

Door Repair in Frisco, TX FAQs

Can I Do Door Repair In Frisco, TX On My Own?

As mentioned above, a repair can be particularly difficult due to the sheer number of components in an entryway system. That being said, there are certainly a few different fixes you can try before calling in our professional technicians. These repairs include:
  • Painting. If you just want a fresh coat of paint, you can tackle this on your own. Conversely, we can paint your slabs and frames for you, too.
  • Lubrication. Cleaning and lubricating hinges and tracks on sliding units can be enough to fix issues you’re having with opening and closing.
  • Weatherstripping. If you want to ensure your entryway is fully sealed, pick up some weatherstripping tape from your local hardware store and apply it to the sides of the slab. For more permanent weatherstripping options, contact our team.
Other types of repairs could probably use the expertise of one of our handyman professionals. When it comes to your exterior doors especially, you don’t want to take any risks.

How Long Will My Exterior Door Last Before It Needs Repair Or Replacement?

How long your entryway stays in good condition will depend on your climate, the amount of use it gets, and how well you care for it. Exterior slabs tend to last most homeowners approximately 30 years, as long as they perform semi-regular maintenance. Depending on the material, you can probably expect:
  • Steel to last 30 to 100 years
  • Wood to last 20 to 60 years
  • Fiberglass to last 30 to 70 years
  • Glass to last 50 to 80 years
Different kinds of door materials also need different levels of routine maintenance. It’s always a good idea to make sure it’s protected from the elements—particularly rain. Wood doors should be regularly sealed to prevent wood rot, and any dings in steel doors should be covered to prevent corrosion.

What Is The Best Exterior Door Material?

There is no single best type of material for exterior doors. The best type of material for you will depend on your climate. In Frisco TX, the summers tend to get extremely hot. Both steel and wood can be affected by this heat, making them perhaps not the ideal choice for our climate. On the other hand, fiberglass doors are very resistant to temperature changes, and thus may be more suited to Texas weather.

However, wood and steel doors can still perform well in Texas. The key is to choose a product that you like and is within your budget. As long as you take care of your doors, they’ll last you for years to come—no matter what material you choose.

How Much Does Door Repair in Frisco, TX Cost?

According to recent statistics, the national average cost of door repair in Frisco TX is somewhere between $125 and $350. The cost will depend largely on the type of repair, extent of damage, and amount of time needed to complete your repair service.

We aim to offer services at a fair price. While we pride ourselves on having affordable prices, it’s also important to us that we pay our service technicians in line with their expertise.
