We pass through doors every day; in, out, and throughout our homes. They allow us free passage, and, when we need, they can be closed for solitude or security. Doors come in many shapes, sizes, and materials and operate in a multitude of ways.
It’s easy to overlook the details of our home’s doors as we pass through them. However, our doors (especially front entry doors) and the door hardware we use say a lot about who lives inside.
In this section of HomeTips you will find information on how different types of doors work, what to look for when buying a door or door hardware, storm and screen door repairs, weatherstripping to seal out drafts, and much more.
