Top 5 Signs You Need to Replace Your Doors

We provide commercial door repair services for Houston area businesses. However, there are times when repairs just won’t cut it. Keep reading to learn when you should retire your old door for a new one.

Broken Beyond Repair

If your door is broken there is a lot that we can do to revive it back to life so it can function as it should. However, there are times when a door is even beyond our expertise. Some signs that your door is a “gonner” include:  it is warped, has too much superficial damage, it has been crushed, bent, and sustained other irreparable damage.

Time For An Upgrade

Sometimes the reason to replace a door isn’t because of damage; sometimes, it is because it’s simply time for an upgrade. An upgrade can be needed to improve the efficiency of the door, the look, or simply to avoid chronic repairs in the future. An upgrade can also provide the means to meet increased use demands.




If you are rebranding your business, it may be time for a new door. A door isn’t just one other mechanical part of your building: A door is a statement. The type of door that you have in your business communicates the type of business that you provide, the quality of work you offer, as well as your success. For example, often, upscale glass doors are indicative of a high-class retail business. However, these types of doors would look silly installed in front of a hardware store. When you need to install a new door, consider your brand and your business type.

Safety Regulations

You may also need to install a new door due to safety regulations. For example, building code dictates that you have a crash bar installed in your commercial doors. Are you doors up to safety regulations? If you’re unsure whether your commercial doors are sufficient, contact your local commercial door service professionals to learn more about what you need.
