Does My Home Need a Security Door?

Your home’s front door has an impact on the aesthetic and curb appeal, but it’s also your first line of defense against intruders. Aside from design, color and style, it’s important to pay attention to the security features of your new front door to decide if it’s the right option for your security needs.

Learn more about security doors for increasing your home’s safety and determine if this is the right choice for your individual needs.

Security Door Features

Like normal doors, security doors come in a variety of material options, such as wood, vinyl or metal, and provide additional benefits. Some are impact-resistant, meaning that they resist damage at the hinges and come with shatter-resistant glass, which prevents extreme weather or natural disasters from doing as much damage. They are also strong and durable, which helps them defend against forced entry or prying.

Though it may seem counter-intuitive, security doors are available with decorative glass panes that enhance their beauty and allow more visibility and light entry. Unlike normal glass panes, however, this high-performance glass is designed to resist cracking, chipping or breaking, so you don’t have to compromise your security for the look you want.

Security Screen Doors

If you prefer a more traditional door, or just want to be able to leave your door open to allow more airflow into your home, a security screen door may be the right choice for you. Traditional screen doors are weak and vulnerable, giving intruders easy access into your home, but security screen doors offer all the benefits of a full security door, as well as improved airflow and visibility.

Aesthetic Appeal

Once you have all the security aspects of the door covered, it’s time to consider the style and aesthetic appeal for your home. Wrought iron doors can range from elegant, minimalistic designs to artwork all their own, often including features that perfectly complement the style of your home.

No matter your home’s style or architectural design, a wrought iron door can add old-world appeal and give you all the efficiency and peace of mind of a security door.
