The winter season is not only about holidays and snow — it’s also the perfect time to carry out your home improvement projects. While many homeowners avoid doing repairs or replacements because of weather-related issues, certain projects can be advantageous. One good example is your door replacement.  

Many homeowners overlook the importance of their doors, but they have a key role when it comes to your home’s energy efficiency and curb appeal. Here’s why you should schedule your door replacement during the cold months. 

Score Better Deals 

During winter, door installation is less expensive because of the off-season. As such, don’t wait until next spring or fall to replace your old door when everybody else is. Additionally, some contractors offer discounts on products when you purchase them in the winter season. However, don’t immediately jump on the first opportunity of a sale. It’s best to check the quality of the door material as well as the expertise of the contractor. 

Shorter Waiting Time 

Contractor services are not in high demand during the winter season. As such, you should be able to easily schedule your home improvement projects, including roof repair and door installation services, during this time. Thanks to the slow season, scheduling is more flexible, and you don’t have to wait for a long time to book an appointment. You can expect to have your old door replaced in a timelier manner. 

Easier to Identify Issues 

It’s important to maintain your home’s energy efficiency during winter. However, many homeowners don’t know that doors, along with windows, account for a quarter of the total heat loss in the average American household. In the winter, it’s easier to identify issues regarding your home’s energy efficiency. Thus, if you notice any sudden changes in temperature inside your home, your old door may be one of the causes. To avoid further problems, be sure to have your door replaced immediately.
