New Year Resolutions for your home: slamming doors
As it turns out, mom was right - it's not a good habit.
Slamming doors on a regular basis, whether out of anger or just force of habit, is not good for them. Over time it can push the door jamb out of line, which can affect the weather sealing on an exterior door and allow heat loss and increase your home energy bills.
It can also damage or loosen hinges and closing hardware - not usually an expensive repair but still an inconvenience compared to taking the little extra bit of time to close doors properly.
