Composite doors have been around for a long time and they are still one of the best options for your home. Knowing that composite doors can last decades without any major upkeep is comforting, but you need to take good care of them. Here are some ways to keep up with maintenance so your door will look great and be secure throughout its lifespan.
Clean the frame and panels
Cleaning your frames and panels is a simple job that can often be completed with just some warm water and soap. It’s important to do this regularly as dirt, grime, or grit could cause the door to jam when it’s opened and closed. This may happen over time if you don’t take care of those pesky little bits of debris that build up on the frame.
Wash the glazing panels
Clean the small panes of glass in your doors with a soft cloth and warm water. You may also use traditional window cleaner to get rid of dirt, if needed. Once you’ve cleaned off any grime or debris from these surfaces, finish up by using some glass cleaner.
Take care of the hardware
We all know that how your home looks on the outside is just as important to people’s impressions of you and what they think about when they come over. If you want your door to stand out, then make sure it has a bright shine! You can do this by wiping it clean with a dry cloth and buffing it to bring back its luster. Don’t ever use any strong cleaning agents like bleach or ammonia because these will damage the finish on your door handles, knockers, hinges etc, which may even require them being replaced altogether.
If you are looking for a durable, maintenance free door that will last for years to come but still look great and require little upkeep, composite doors may be the perfect fit. However, make sure you maintain it regularly to make the most of it!
