Enhancing Home Door Durability: Replacing Rotten Wood Rain Deflector with a Metal One

Rain Deflector Replacement

Today we are going to talk about something that is not very noticeable but important for your home – a door rain deflector. It’s a small piece attached to the bottom of your exterior door that helps keep rain and bad weather out. Recently we helped one of our customers by replacing their old, rotten wood deflector with a sturdy metal one.

Understanding the Rain Deflector:
Picture this: a rain deflector is a narrow strip at the bottom of your door that creates an angled lip. This design allows water to trickle off and away from the gap between the door and the floor, keeping the inside of your home dry. Without it, rainwater can easily seep through, causing damage to your door and flooring.

The Problem with Rotten Wood:
Our customer had a common issue – their rain deflector, made of wood, was rotting. Wood rot happens when wood gets old and wet. It’s not just about looks – a rotten rain deflector can let water in, damaging your door and floor, and even leading to mold, which is bad for your health.

The Solution: Upgrading to Metal:
We stepped in to help by replacing the old, rotten wood deflector with a new one made of metal. Metal doesn’t rot like wood, so it’s stronger and lasts longer. Metal door deflectors are tough and can handle the rain without breaking down. With this upgrade, our customer’s house is better protected from the elements.

Why It Matters:
You might wonder why this small piece is so important. Well, it’s because a good rain deflector keeps your home safe from water damage. By having a strong rain deflector, you’re preventing rain from getting inside and causing problems. Fixing a small issue now can save you from bigger headaches later.

Taking care of your home is essential, and even small changes can make a big difference. By swapping out a rotten wood rain deflector for a sturdy metal one, we’ve helped our customer’s house stay strong and dry. If you want to keep your home safe too, reach out to us at West Handyman. We’re here to help you protect what matters most.
