Top Three Shopping TipsSteel Front Doors

Steel front doors are an excellent choice when you’re considering a new door for your home. They are relatively inexpensive, especially as compared to wood doors, and withstand weather as well as fiberglass and wood doors. If you have little time to spend on home maintenance, steel front doors require little upkeep, and they’re very energy efficient, if that’s important to you.

You have options when shopping for steel front doors, like adding glass panels and choosing colors. So how do you know where to start when you’re shopping for steel front doors? Here are three shopping tips to help you find the perfect door for your home.

Look for the Energy Star rating

Steel doors are energy efficient, one reason why they’re a popular choice for front doors on homes. They typically have more insulating value than wood doors, for example. To be Energy Star qualified, steel front doors must pass a series of independent tests before they can be certified. Typically, steel front doors have a tighter seal than other types of doors, which also adds to their energy efficiency. One note: if you decide to add glass panels to your steel front door, choose double or triple-paned glass. It will help boost the Energy Star rating of your front door, but glass is still less efficient at reducing heat transfer.

Should you have steel front doors professionally installed?

This is typically a question only you can answer. How proficient are you with tools and basic construction skills? Your new steel front doors will most likely come pre-hung in a frame that gets installed into the doorway where you current door is now. If you’re merely replacing your existing front door with a new steel front door and have some DIY skills, you might be able to tackle this on the weekend. But if you’re changing the size of your front entryway by adding sidelites or a larger door, that entails redoing the door framing around your front door. In that case, you should probably hire a professional to install your new steel front doors.

Don’t skimp on hardware

People choose steel front doors for a variety of reasons, one being how strong they are. If safety is important to you, a steel front door can deter burglars and others from trying to break in your front door. More importantly, however, is choosing the right hardware such as a lockset including a deadbolt. It’s actually not the door that ends up failing; it’s the lockset, particularly where the strike plate sits in the door jamb. For the safest, most secure steel front door, choose a high quality lockset and strike plate. Purchasing a beefier lockset and strike plate will greatly reduce someone’s ability to kick in your front door.

Protecting Your Home

As an individual or even a family person, you want to do everything you can to protect your home. When thinking about protecting your home, you may consider buying a deadbolt and locking your doors when you are out of the house or even when you are home. You’ve worked hard to create a safe, relaxing environment for you family and belongings, so consider how a glass or wood front door is constructed. A lock is a great idea but even with that some doors just aren’t sturdy enough.

If you really want a great way to protect your home, getting a steel front door is the best idea. The steel door will deter would-be criminals in several ways. We know the criminal is not up for hard work since he steals for a living. Because of this, when he sees a steel door he’ll more than likely just pass you by because it’s too much work. If he is dumber than he looks and tries to break in, he’ll have a lot of difficulty, because if there is glass in the door, they are smaller panes made from impact resistant glass. Just by getting this type of door installed, you could start feeling safer right away, and in the future, too.

Saving Money on Your Energy Bill

When thinking about your energy bill every month, do you get stressed out? Is it much higher than what you would like it to be? Most people can and would answer yes to these questions. If this is the case for you, don’t hesitate to choose steel front doors for your home. Because you installed a steel door, your insurance would most likely be lower due to increased security, but the energy bill will drop too because of their high rated R value. Looking at some information about doors, the steel door is rated to resist 5 times more heat transfer than a wooden door. That’s an R-5 and a $ saver for you.

They can start helping right away on cutting down the cost of your energy bill. This type of material helps to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Solid in every way, the steel door will shield no only intruders from your belongings, but the cold winter air and hot summer heat outside where they all belong. You’ll feel warmer/cooler and so much safer inside after you’ve installed the new steel front door. Who could turn down something that would help them to save money? Not many people would, and you shouldn’t do that either.

Questions And Answers

https://www.doors.com/front-doors/steel-front-doors

What are the benefits of steel front doors?

Steel entry doors have become a viable option for homes, since they can last a long time and come in a variety of styles, including smooth or wood-grain textures in multiple stains and paint finishes, and with glass inserts. Steel doors are more energy-efficient than doors made of solid wood, ensuring lower heating and cooling costs. They also provide a high level of protection—it’s more difficult to break into a house with a steel door because of the stronger hold they provide in the frame. Steel doors are far more difficult to force open, offer deeper deadbolt protection and boast a much heavier weight.They also tend to have a higher resale value over fiberglass, when installed in homes.

How are steel entry doors constructed?

Steel doors are made of heavy-gauge galvanized steel over a core of rigid foam, wood or steel. They come in a wood frame that holds insulation to make them energy efficient. Steel doors are typically finished at the factory with a baked-on polyester finish or vinyl coating that doesn’t require further finishing at installation

How do steel doors compare to fiberglass doors or wood doors?

While steel doors offer the most security, they are usually not as energy-efficient as fiberglass, though depending on the glazing option, some come with an Energy Star certification. Steel is more likely to scratch and dent than fiberglass because of the thinner outer layer. Steel tends to have a shorter lifespan than wood or fiberglass, and if not properly maintained, can rust. Also, steel conducts temperature, which is not ideal in an extremely hot or cold environment. Unlike wood doors, steel doors do not warp or peel. Steel entry doors are very affordable compared to wood doors and offer significant long-term value.

How do you ensure a steel door’s integrity?

Steel doors scratch easily, and a painted door can sometimes chip more easily than a fiberglass door, so if you want a new look and choose to paint the door yourself, it’s important to apply a solid base coat or primer before painting and finishing it. To better preserve the doors and keep them from rusting, steel doors should also be oiled.

How do I know what thickness to buy in a steel door?

Steel doors with a lower gauge number are far more secure, insulating and require less maintenance than their wooden counterparts, and are less expensive. The higher the gauge number, the thinner the steel. You want 20-gauge thickness or lower.

What do steel front doors cost?

Basic steel doors range in price from $300 to $500. The cost depends upon the thickness of the steel, coatings and finish. High-quality doors that are sure to last a lifetime cost at least $1,000. Steel doors that are more expensive might have a vinyl coating for weather resistance, or even a laminated wood veneer. Professional installation costs can range from $600 to $1,800 depending on the door and where you live.
