Steel Entry Doors
You would like to keep your home and family safe, so replacing your front and back doors are a primary concern. Most home invasions happen right through the front door and you don’t want your door to leave you at risk. Steel doors are a quality choice to upgrade your overall safety protocol (for more information, contact Peak Custom Remodeling). Here are a few reasons why steel should be your first consideration and ways to make it an even stronger choice.
Steel doors are one of the least expensive door options on the market, which means you can focus on safety feature upgrades instead of throwing your entire budget into just the door.
It’s energy efficient
Steel doors can help to keep your energy costs down, especially with many of the efficiency-minded features available on the market today.
Make it solid
Choose a steel door with a solid core, otherwise it is still easy for a burglar to bust through the door without much effort. Adding a core makes it much harder to break in.
Upgrade with a thicker sheet of steel
This will reinforce the door and make it even stronger.
Don’t skimp on the locks
A solid door won’t be much good to you if the locks are weak and easily broken. Choose a deadbolt that has a throw that is at least one-inch long.
Reinforce the frame
Choose a quality steel door frame that is screwed into the studs with at least three-inch screws. If a door frame can be easily destroyed, any door can be opened. Don’t let it happen to you!
