Strength and Stability

Steel front entry doors have a solid, and well-served, reputation in regards to security. The metal makes the door harder to penetrate when compared to certain alternatives, like wood, and may be harder to force open. They are also resistant to warping and cracking, increasing the odds that your front door will stand the test of time.

Extra durable steel front entry doors even resist dents, which can be an issue with lesser quality steel front entry doors, making it less likely that the surface will show damage after a small impact.
