How to Choose Rustic Glass Double Entry Doors

If you have a significant amount of space in your entryway, double entry doors can be an excellent option for taking advantage of the additional room while adding drama to a space. Not only do you have a larger opening to navigate when coming in or out of your house, but you can also make the doors themselves a feature.

Rustic glass double entry doors are ideal for those who prefer a country or industrial aesthetic and want sunlight to penetrate into the entryway. Often, wood is the favored material when you are going for a rustic look but other options, like steel or fiberglass, can also be appropriate.

There are also multiple glass finishes to choose from, including:

  • Clear
  • Frosted or Textured
  • Stained

Each of the above options can work beautifully with a rustic door, though may impact the total cost.

Available Views

Glass is normally used in double entry doors to allow light into the interior and take advantage of any view. Typically, you have three options when it comes to the amount of glass: high view, mid-view, full view. High view options have the least about of glass, with the panels typically occupying no more than the upper half of each door.

Mid-view rustic glass double entry doors have panes that take up around three-quarters of each door while full view features the most glass. Any of those options can be used in a rustic double entry door as the remaining structure is often what defines the overall style. However, using larger glass panes does decrease privacy, so it’s important to keep that in mind when choosing your rustic glass double entry doors.

Materials

When most people picture a rustic door, their first thought usually involves wood. Wood is an excellent option for rustic glass double entry doors, particularly due to its durability. Plus, you can choose to either paint or stain the wood, giving you the widest selection of finish options. However, it’s important to note that wood doors tend to be more expensive and require more maintenance than most other materials. Since the wood needs to be protected from the elements, regular painting or staining and sealing is required to maintain its integrity.

Alternatively, you can look for rustic glass double entry doors made from fiberglass or steel. Since these materials can be shaped and molded, and even designed to mimic wood grain, you can find rustic options available. Plus, they don’t require the same amount of maintenance and typically cost less than wood.

Security

Double entry doors are inherently a bit less secure than single entry doors. The fact that they latch in the center creates a weak point, and an intruder could kick that area to compromise the lock. However, if you add a security bar or door stop bolts, you can make your entryway less vulnerable.

Since there is glass involved, you also need to make smart choices from a security perspective. Double-paned glass is harder to break than a single pane, causing the door to be more secure. Plus, double-panes also increasing energy efficiency, a nice feature that can help keep your heating and cooling costs more reasonable throughout the year.

How To Paint Metal Front Door

You may think of painting walls in different rooms of your home, arts and crafts but you may not have considered painting a metal front door. This type of door gets drilled by the sun every day and the metal may get very hot. Through time, the pain is going to start peeling off your door. In just a couple years after painting it, the door may look like a cracked egg all over. When others come to your home, they won’t be all too thrilled. Some people say that lighter paint is going to help with this.

However, if that isn’t something you want to do, you may need to try out different things before finally figuring it out.

How To Replace Door Weather Seal

A door weather seal is placed between the bottom of an exterior door to seal the gap between the door and the floor. The weather seal stops inside air from escaping into the outside, and air from outdoors coming inside, preventing uncomfortable conditions and increased energy consumption.

On average, weatherstripping lasts 3- 5 years, although some products last much longer and some much less. The type of weatherstripping selected and care of the product both affect the duration of time it’ll last. There’s also a plethora of things that may cause the weatherstripping to deteriorate or otherwise become damaged.  Pets and humans can both cause damage to weatherstripping, as can pests, the age of the material, improper care, and various weather conditions.

Deteriorating or damaged weatherstripping allows air to escape from the home and allows outside air to come inside. It also suffices as an entrance point for pests like ants, spiders, cockroaches, and bees who want nothing more than to make themselves right at home underneath your roof. Inspecting the door weather seal yearly is ideal. As you inspect the weatherstripping, look for signs of deterioration and damage, including:

  • Weather seal that’s bent or otherwise lost shape
  • Dry, brittle, or cracked weather seal
  • Losing adhesive foam, or foam that has pulled away from its fixture
  • Missing adhesive foam
  • Missing nails

If damage is noted, don’t delay learning how to replace door weather seal with the step-by-step guide below. You’re letting heat and air escape your home, costing a considerable amount on your heating costs. Outside air and pests coming indoors create a big nuisance. Temperatures inside your home are likely uncomfortable. You’re suffering without merit, since a DIY weatherstrip replacement is a simple procedure that protects your home, comfort, and peace of mind. Expert door seal replacement isn’t necessary, as any homeowner can complete the task in a matter of hours with a few tools in-hand. Gather the items you’ll need and prepare for a day of DIY weatherstripping fun.
