Your windows and doors are exposed to the elements around your home year-round, so the climate of your home can drastically impact its longevity. For instance, if you live in a particularly wet or humid climate with wood window frames and wood front doors, you will likely have to contend with swelling and protect the door against warping or rotting. Steel doors in an especially hot, Southern climate can be hot and uncomfortable to the touch and might have issues with peeling or bubbling paint.
Your windows and doors must be compatible with the local climate. In Lowell, we experience all four seasons throughout the year: cold, wet winters; hot, sunny summers; and everything in between. If your windows and doors aren’t built for the New England climate, they’re sure to falter.
