What to Expect from Our Essex County Door Repair Services

If you live in Massachusetts, you know you'll encounter almost any kind of weather. From hot summers to winters with temperatures dropping below freezing, you want to be prepared for anything Massachusetts throws at you! 

Count on us for your Essex County door repairs! Learn more about some of the most common issues we can tackle to get your door back to tip-top shape:

Broken Latches/Hinges

Latches and hinges are built for some movement. They should move seamlessly, for example, when the door opens and closes, but what they're not built for is handling horizontal pressure. If your latch is broken, chances are the pressure has become too much for it to hold. A common cause of this is improper installation of a door or its frame. It could also be due to weather stripping, which is installed to protect a home from an unwanted breeze. 


The most common cause of warping is changes in moisture levels. Changes in humidity cause the wood to swell and then shrink, resulting in warping and, in extreme cases, cracking and splitting. 

Sticky Doors

There are a wide range of reasons why a door might be sticking. First, it's important to determine from which part of the door it is sticking. If it's sticking at the top, the issue could be a drooping or bent doorframe or loose hinges. If it's sticking in the middle, your door could have a loose strike plate. Other sticky sections of the door could likely be a cause of warping and humidity. During your Essex County door repair service, you can rest assured that we’ll eliminate these issues once and for all.

General Wear and Tear Damage 

At the end of the day, your home was made for living in, so there's bound to be some nicks and scratches from general wear and tear. Changes in internal temperatures, slamming and banging, pet scratches and chewing, and aging materials will all cause your doors to absorb a fair bit of damage over time. 

Misaligned Bottom Wall Plates

Misaligned wall plates will prevent your door from resting flush along the door frame. This issue is due to the door jambs. Tapping the jamb at the top of the door or moving the jamb altogether could help with this. Whatever the issue, our service technicians will figure it out! 

Door Won't Close

This can be one of the most inconvenient issues you'll face, but when you hire us for exceptional door repairs in Essex County, we’ll make this problem go away. If a door won't close, it's not serving its purpose. The root cause behind this issue is a little more difficult to pin down. The latch could be misaligned with the hole in the strike plate, the door's hinges might need to be tightened, the hinges could be seized, or it could be due to a sagging door frame. Whatever the issue, don't waste your time trying to pin down the problem yourself. Our service professionals will get to the bottom of it, no problem!

Should I Replace or Repair My Doors?

When it comes to the question of repair or replacement door, you might decide it's worth it to scrap the old door for a new one. But sometimes all your door needs is a spruce. Firstly, it depends on which door you're looking to replace or repair. Your front door, for example, is the gateway between you and the elements and, ideally, it should last as long as your home.

However, if you're already doing renovations, it might be worth it to opt for door replacement to go with the room's new aesthetic.
