When it comes to installing iron doors, you’ve got two options: You can either get a professional to do it or take it on yourself. There are reasons to choose both types of installation. So, which one is best for you? Here are some of the items to consider when installing your new door.

Installing a Door Yourself

If you already have the experience and an extra set of hands to install a heavy door, then this shouldn’t present much of a challenge. Even if you have no experience, there is an online instruction video for just about anything, including doors. However, without any of your own experience, you could be setting yourself up for disaster.

If you don’t know how to install a door, there’s no way to know that the person you’re watching does, either. Not only that, but you could run into many unexpected surprises, including improper leveling, air leaks, and issues with door operation. Without prior knowledge, a problem could delay your installation indefinitely or even make it worse.

Another thing to consider when going DIY with a door installation is time. For someone who is inexperienced, it can take far longer than it should to complete the installation. While this might not matter as much if it’s an interior door, the fact remains that your home is still in disarray for longer than you planned. Being unable to enjoy your home for any length of time means you’re losing value on the investment you made in a wrought iron door.

Calling the Experts

One of the best parts about hiring a professional to install your door is specialization. Because installing doors is all they do, a professional can get it done in record time, and without any mistakes. An installer knows what they’re dealing with before they complete any installation. That means they’ll ensure they have the right tools and number of people for the job before they get to you.

And those unexpected surprises? A professional knows exactly how to handle them. A priority for any expert who completes a project at a client’s home is to be clean. That means ensuring their work area is tidy while they’re there, as well as leaving it spotless when the job is done.

You won’t have to worry about much lost time when you hire an expert installer. They’ve already saved you tons of time by having everything they need on hand, not to mention a pretty good idea of how long the installation should take.

Finally, you won’t have to worry about any damage to your door frame or floors with a pro. They know exactly how to install a door so that it and what’s around it don’t get scratched, dented, or broken.
