What Type of Door Meets Your Needs
If you’re on the market for a new door for your home, you may not know exactly how to communicate your wishes in ways that retailers or contractors will understand. Unless you work within the industry, it makes perfect sense that you might not know exactly how you should refer to different types of doors, but that’s what we’re here to clear up.
Common door types include:
- Security screen doors
- Iron entry doors
So, now that you know three common types, let’s delve a little deeper into how they differ.
Security Screen Doors
If you are looking for something that gives you added protection while still allowing you to enjoy fresh air, a security screen door may fit your needs. These models attach to the exterior of your existing entry door, giving you yet another line of security and defense (our Signature Security Screen door series offers enhanced safety features that other retailers do not), and they can also allow for ventilation inside, even when the door itself is locked. Another bonus is that they offer enhanced curb appeal. Many of our Signature models have optional glass components, something highly uncommon among other retailers, and they come in a variety of designs so that you can select one in line with your existing home and style preferences.
Iron Entry Doors
Iron entry doors replace the actual entry door to your home, which might be made of wood. In addition to enhancing your home’s prestige and outward appearance, iron entry doors offer more security than wooden models, and they’re also comprised of fire-proof materials. When it comes to strength, security, durability and longevity, iron entry doors are an obvious choice. Whether you’re looking for something elegant and ornate or more traditional in design, iron entry doors offer the same considerable benefits.
Enclosure doors, as the name suggests, are those that enclose a particular area, such as a yard, patio or courtyard. These fitted gates secure the space they surround, and in addition to adding undeniable elegance, they also help enhance security. A wise investment, iron enclosures withstand the test of time, standing strong against the elements and helping you avoid having to replace them every couple of years due to weather-related damage. Another bonus? They also boost your property value.
Now that you have a better idea of what type of door might fit your needs, you can start on the fun part – choosing a design that complements your home, boosts your curb appeal and makes you smile every time you step through it.
