Apart from changes in weather, stretching of door leaf joints, cracked paint or brittle doors is also the cause of bent or loose doors and windows. This is certainly a little troublesome and inconvenient. Especially if the door makes a sound and disturbs concentration at home.

Well, here are some tips for dealing with bent doors and windows due to expansion.

Choose a good material

Door leaves have various types and variants of materials. Currently there are types of doors and windows made of wood, PVC, iron and uPVC. For wood, you should use a solid type and a good level of dryness so that it can withstand a variety of weather. This is so that the door is durable and not porous. Meanwhile, if you choose iron material, there is a possibility to expand, even though it is very small. The best material for doors and windows is uPVC. This material is very resistant to various types of extreme weather, termite-proof, anti-rust and also able to reduce noise.
