How We Handle Door Repair in Chicago
The average home has many different types of doors. From your front and back doors to those for your rooms, pantry, and closets, each one serves an important purpose and experiences daily use. We know the array of issues that doors can run into, which is why we offer a comprehensive selection of solutions within our Chicago door repair service.
Misalignment. When doors are incorrectly hung or have not been properly fitted, they will have gaps at the top, bottom, or side that will either let in drafts and pests or won't allow the door to close properly. We will need to take your door off of its hinges and re-hang it to resolve this. In the case of patio door repair, we may just need to get it back on track.
Gaps. Doors that have not been properly sealed can swell from moisture, causing them to warp when they dry out. This warping may lead to gaps that can allow drafts into your home. Warping may call for a complete door replacement.
Cracks & chips. Whether from slamming or weather changes, over time, your doors may begin to crack or have chips. These issues get worse with time and lessen the energy efficiency and indoor air quality of your home. To resolve them, a little epoxy wood putty will fill the crack or chip, which we will then smooth, sand, and paint to match your existing door.
Wood rot. If you have a wooden door that has not been properly sealed, re-painted, or re-stained, you may see a crumbly, white or stringy brown texture form in one section. This is wood rot, and if left untreated, it can take over your entire door and creep onto other wooden surfaces and structures in and outside of your home. If we catch it early enough, we can scoop out the affected section and fill it with epoxy.
Broken hardware. Hinges, locks, and knobs break from time to time, so we recommend investing in a high-security or heavy-duty lock made from quality materials if possible. Whether your door will not lock, your knob won't turn, or your door is hanging on its hinges, a quick replacement is all it will take to get it working correctly again.

Chicago Door Repair FAQs
Should I Get Door Replacement or Door Repair in Chicago?
Whether you get a door repair or replacement depends on the condition of your door and its age. As doors age, they lose some of their durability and become less energy-efficient. On average, front doors last for 20 years, but they may last up to 100 if you have chosen an aluminum or steel front door and have maintained it well. For the rest of us without steel doors, proper maintenance such as filling cracks, painting or staining, addressing warped frames, and repairing weatherstripping can elongate the lifespan of your door. If you notice a combination of the following, it may be time for a replacement:
- Multiple cracks
- Warped door or door frame
- Rust or corrosion
- Holes or impact damage
Replacing severely damaged doors can help increase the energy efficiency of your home, increase safety, and prevent pest intrusion. Should you be looking for a replacement, there is a wide variety of door types to choose from, and we’re happy to answer any questions. From wood and aluminum doors to fiberglass doors, we know the convenient, energy efficient, and low-maintenance types.
Why is My Patio Door So Hard to Open?
Sliding glass doors are beautiful and allow tons of light to fill your home, but they do have their drawbacks. Unlike regular doors that don't have a track, sliding glass doors have a recess that collects dirt and debris that blows in from outside. If there is a build-up of debris, your door rollers will not glide effortlessly along the track. This can even happen with interior sliding closet doors when dirt, hair, or pet fur fills the track. Thankfully, this issue is easy to resolve. All it takes is a simple cleaning.
