Top Three Shopping TipsIron Security Doors

A home’s security is always a homeowner’s top priority. Your home can be designed perfectly, and built wonderfully, but if your home isn'tsecure, what’s the point? Aside from purchasing a sturdy front door and a security system that meets your needs, an added home security measure is an iron security door.

Today’s iron security doors are not the harsh doors with intimidating iron bars of the past. They have evolved into beautiful doors that add personality as well as security to a home. There are many options to choose from. Using these three shopping tips can help you narrow down your search for the perfect iron security door.

Narrow down the design

The two most common security-door materials are iron and steel. Both materials offer up a large range of designs that complement any personality. While this is a good thing, it can feel overwhelming. Before starting your security door search, take a look at the exterior of your home. What are the primary colors? What is the overall design feel? Is your home elegant? Is your home rustic? Narrowing down what your design needs are can help reduce the stress that can accompany having too many options to choose from. Remember, while this is a door that enhances your home’s security, it should enhance your home aesthetically as well.

Features to look for

Because security is the name of the game in regards to purchasing an iron security door, there are certain features to look before making a purchase. Standard door screws are too short to provide adequate security measures are can easily allow for a door to be kicked in. For an iron security door, using screws that are at least 3” in length and installing locks that are high-quality can exponentially increase the overall security of your door. Iron bars do little to protect against kicking a door down if the door’s screws are not the appropriate length and if the door does not have a strong and sturdy lock.

Maintenance is key

Because you are purchasing an iron security door, you do not have to worry about the door being warped by inclement weather. With that being said, iron can rust. Keeping up with regular maintenance is important, especially if you live somewhere that is wet or humid. Checking your door for rust regularly, as well as its hardware for rust and overall ease of function, can help you fix any damage before it becomes a bigger, more costly problem. Another option that cuts down on how often you need to maintain your iron security door is buying a door that is powder-coated. Cured with heat, powder-coating lasts longer than paint and does not require as much maintenance as paint requires.

Home security is likely one of your primary concerns if you’re a homeowner. There are infinite ways to make your home safer, but for your exterior doors, a prime choice are iron security doors. You can choose security doors in any material, of course, but you might choose iron for:

  • trusted security
  • dazzling design
  • energy efficiency

You’ll get many years of use out of iron security doors before you’ll even have to think about replacing them, which makes them a smart buy for most homeowners.

Choosing The Colors

When you think of iron security doors, your first thoughts may be of wrought iron, so you’re thinking you have options for color: matte black or glossy. However, iron security doors come in a way wider range of color choices than that. Black is, of course, always available, but if you’d like something a little less harsh, you’re in luck.

If you’d like something dark but not black, iron security doors can be made in dark brown shades. If you’re looking for something a little lighter, they can also be made in lighter brown shades like almond or even as light as white. And they don’t stop there. For something with a lot more dazzle, you can choose “vein” colors, solid color doors shot through with metallic veins—almost like marble.

Don’t Forget the Design

Color choices are only one part of the design options with iron security doors. The variety of metal designs is limited only to your imagination. If you’re more conservative or looking for something to fit a more classic home, there are simpler designs like plain bars or other geometric options. However, if you’d like something with a little more flair, your choices are wide open.

On the simpler end, you have designs with scrollwork or basic floral elements. Designs can get much more elaborate from there. You can find anything from stars and animal accents to full landscape scenes. If you’re searching for an easy way to add curb appeal, a beautifully designed iron security door may be the solution for you.

Keeping It Maintained

Iron security doors should do well in most weather, unless they’re frequently exposed to high levels of salt in the air or a lot of moisture. In that case, they can wear down, but in most conditions, they won’t crack or warp like doors made of fiberglass or wood. Like any metal, they are vulnerable to rust, but you can prevent rusting by repairing any scratches or other damage as soon as possible.

Another way you should prepare your iron security door is by weather-proofing it. Most iron security doors are made with insulation, like foam insulation, to keep them as energy efficient as possible, but that won’t stop all heat or cooling loss. To keep your home energy costs down, look into installing weatherstripping to stop air from escaping.
