A historic home captures the charm and style unique to the time it was constructed. From its past residents and house guests to its design elements, a historic home has a unique character and personality. As the house settles and is lived in over the years, elements of the home can become worn and damaged. Doors become stuck and hardware breaks, leaving the door no longer functional. Paint chips off creating inconsistencies in the appearance. Gaps between the door and frame have become bigger over time, creating drafts. Before replacing the doors all together, it’s important to consider historic door restoration.
