Unfortunately, as reliable as they are, metal doors and their frames are also susceptible to damage. There are quite a lot of different reasons for which the metal door frame could need the help of experts. One of the most common reasons for which you might want to get your frame checked out is corrosion. This is especially true if the frame is exposed to outside weather conditions or to some sort of chemicals like de-icing salts or cleaning detergents.

When it comes to steel door frames, corrosion is observed usually at the lower end of the jambs of the frame. It is commonly described as rust. There is a rather common misconception when it comes to corrosion. The majority of people tend to believe that it starts from the outside and spreads through the inside of the frame while in fact the opposite is actually true. The issue becomes serious when water, regardless of its source – it could be from humid conditions or from rain, finds its way to the inside of the frame. Once it’s there, it could become damp for a significant amount of time because the space is actually enclosed. Throughout this time, the backside of the frame is actually constantly wet and the rust is undeniably going to start to form.
