Making the Decision for Metal Front Doors

If you’ve just started shopping for a new front door, metal front doors might be a possibility that you haven’t considered yet. You might not know, for example, that unlike wood, metal front doors can be made of a few different materials, including:

  • Steel
  • Iron
  • Aluminum

Some metal front doors are made of one piece, like one sheet of steel, or multiple pieces welded together. They can be painted, but they also come in a variety of colors and finishes, so it shouldn’t be difficult to find one that will match your home.

Valued for their security, metal front doors are available in a range of prices that can fit most budgets. In addition, according to Remodeling magazine, 92% of homeowners were able to recoup the cost when they sold their homes after installing a metal front door (steel, in particular). Prior to selling, the homeowner also saved money on insurance costs because of the extra security they provide.

Maintaining the Metal

Unless you live in an area with extremes in weather, metal front doors are fairly easy to maintain. They are stronger than doors made of wood or fiberglass, because they don’t crack, swell, or warp. However, they will wear down if exposed to heavy moisture or salt in the air. A simple wipe down can help reduce this wear because the moisture and salt aren’t allowed to build up. Additionally, a little oil on the hinges will be a simple thing to do to keep them opening and closing smoothly.

Another danger for metal front doors is heavy traffic because metal front doors can be vulnerable to denting. However, if you’re more concerned about security and/or cost than simply the aesthetic qualities of your door, you should consider a metal front door. You should repair scratches immediately, though, to make sure they don’t rust and if needed, a simple coat of paint is all it will take to make your door look like new again. In addition, install your metal front door or have it installed so that it opens out, because this makes it more reliable.

Locking It Down

If you’re buying a metal front door because of security concerns, you should also carefully consider the lock you’re installing on it. Choose the best lock that fits your budget but be sure to get good quality. One quality lock is better than multiple locks, if they’re poorly constructed. Why spend the extra money on a steel door and then use a lower quality lock that will let intruders enter with ease?

For metal front doors, you have two basic types to choose, which are lever locks and cylinder locks. Cylinder locks are so named because of their internal cylinder. They’re strong locks, but the downside is they work only with the original key. Most often, if you lose it, you’ll have to replace the entire cylinder because the key is often not able to be reproduced. Lever locks are just as strong as cylinder locks, with the added bonus that you won’t have to replace the entire mechanism if you lose your key. However, because they are made to enhance the security and operation of your new steel door, you should obviously choose the lock that best fits your needs and budget.

What’s Inside That Counts

Like fiberglass front doors, many, if not most, metal front doors are manufactured with insulating material inside, helping to keep your home energy efficient. The insulation can be made of several materials, which include foam, mineral wool, and expanded polystyrene. You will have to choose for yourself what level of insulation you need, as it will depend on the climate where you live. Consider the investment up front and compare it with the savings you’ll experience by lowered energy costs.

However, as with all entries, the biggest danger is not the door itself, but the area around the door. It can be easy for air to get in and out due to gaps between the door and its frame. Be sure to install weather-stripping around the door to prevent this problem. Another good idea is to install a door sweep at the bottom, which also helps keep out drafts. A tighter seal will also help maintain the door because it does not allow rain or ice to lay against the metal and possibly cause it to rust.

External Front Doors With Glass

Glass front doors, in one form or another, are amongst the most appealing and widely used architectural features in both home renovations and new builds. A front glass door not only opens your home’s interior to the outdoor world, it also enriches your views, enhances natural light and improves ventilation. Because a glass door is naturally transparent, it can be a showstopper because it is able to blur the boundaries between your outdoors and indoors. Glass panel external doors are likely to provide a unique and exceptional vintage appearance to any apartment or house. In fact, most glass panel front doors come with a naturally beautiful look. These doors do not rust, peel or corrode and are resistant to insects and termites, which gives them an advantage over wood or metal doors.
