Benefits of Front Metal Doors for Home

In the past, metal front doors were used exclusively in industrial and commercial buildings. However, as more home owners are discovering the different benefits of metal clad exterior entryways, metal front doors are gaining popularity on the home improvement and new home construction scenes.

Metal front doors will cost you anywhere between $100 and $150 for a standard door without any hardware. You are likely to pay higher prices if you go for other features and customization such as a peephole or metal accents. You may either opt for vinyl coatings, which do not require painting, or pre-painted layers that allow you the luxury to change colors whenever you like. In case your doorway has an uncommon size, the metal door can also be tailor made to closely fit the largest opening.

The installation of a metal front door is an ideal way to enhance the appearance or visual appeal of the home’s exterior. These gorgeous and attractive doors come in a variety of styles, colors and decorative patterns, which offer you a distinct way to modify your personal haven. Apart from enhancing the elegance and visual appeal of your house, metal doors have a number of benefits which are discussed below.

Boost Home Value

Metal front doors not just make your house look swanky and more expensive, but they are also likely to enhance the value of your home in case you decide to sell it in the future. If you have a striking metal door installed, it can make the home and your neighborhood seem nicer and will have a lasting and positive impression on many potential home buyers. This can increase the sum of money the home buyers are willing to shell out.

Metal front doors often have foam inner layers that trap cold and heat inside for greater energy savings. This can save you in energy bills on a monthly basis, making your home more appealing to prospective buyers as well.

Enhanced Security

One of the best benefits of having a metal front door is that it offers improved security. As a majority of metal front doors are very difficult to enter, they act as a deterrent to thieves and keep them from breaking in. A number of modern designs tend to feature wrought iron or steel designs over thick wood or glass. Although these doors are not indestructible, they are usually sturdy and heavy, making them extremely difficult to trespass.

Obviously, you would still need to take a few precautions, such as installing a good in-home alarm system, but a full-size metal door will certainly help you feel more secure and safer while sending potential thieves away to a less secure home.

Durable and Long Lasting

As you can expect, metals such as iron or steel are the most weather-resistant and durable materials available on the market. They are certainly more durable compared to wood and glass doors. For example, pre-fabricated steel front doors have a gauge range of about 15 to 25; keep in mind that a lower gauge makes a door stronger and thicker.

Metal entry doors are an excellent investment because they are likely to last for several years and still look elegant and polished. As a result of the durable and sturdy wrought iron or steel that is used, metal doors are able to withstand a remarkable amount of pressure, extreme temperatures and natural elements without the need for replacement or repair.

If you are looking to spruce up your home’s exterior, you can take advantage of the several benefits offered by metal front doors.

Upvc Front Doors

Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride (uPVC) is basically pure, rigid plastic, and because of the versatility and resilience of uPVC doors, they are a great choice for a front door. While these doors are very efficient and have many benefits, they are still affordable and priced much lower than many doors that also require far more maintenance. While these doors are already affordable and low maintenance, they will also save a household money on utilities in the long run, since they are great insulators. This manufactured material doesn’t contain any BPA so it’s safe to use and is actually good for the environment. This resilience and ability to insulate make uPVC doors a great option for many different homes in all kinds of climates. As with other manufactured materials, the front door made from uPVC will not transfer temperature from outside, so it is much more energy efficient and may even save enough to match the difference in price. read more
