Did you know that front doors are one of the most important aspects of home or business security? Front doors can also play a role in curb appeal. A front door issue, such as a dent, hinge damage, or a latch problem, is more often than not a safety hazard. If you're experiencing any of these issues, you might be wondering if it's better to repair your front door or replace it entirely. Push to Open Doors certified door technicians will provide you with the information you'll need to consider so you can make the best decision for your home or business.


There are a few things you'll need to consider before making your decision:

The condition of your door

The cost/budget

Replacing your front door can be expensive, especially if you have a custom door. Repairs are often more affordable and can save you money in the long run.

Some doors are more economical to replace than others. If you have a standard door, it might be more cost effective to replace it than to repair it.

The type of door

The type of door you have will also play a role in your decision.

Your timeline

Time is a big factor to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace your door. Replacing a door is a big project and can often take several weeks from start to finish.
