Iron doors for your home are certainly an investment, but how do you know if they’re right for you?
When purchasing a home, it’s typical to keep the door that originally came with the house. More often than not, it’s a standard wooden door, which you can certainly freshen up with a new coat of paint, but the benefits of iron entry doors far outweigh those of wooden doors. Replacing your home’s door will not only elevate the overall aesthetic of the home, but will also increase its value while adding a higher sense of security.
It’s clear that a wrought iron door brings an elevated sense of sophistication to any home and, with that sophistication, comes a stronger curb appeal.
Iron itself is incredibly versatile when it comes to design. Whether you’re looking for an ornate door with intricate details and design, or you’re in the market for a sleek and simple look, you’ll find what you’re looking for with wrought iron doors.
Additionally, wrought iron doors can be custom designed to fit any doorway’s shape or size.
Iron doors help tremendously when it comes to insulation, which will save money down the line when it comes to heating: wooden doors aren’t as insulating as iron doors because the iron material of the door itself holds thermal heat much better. With an insulated iron door, you have foam insulation to help stop heat loss. You won’t have to pay for as much energy to heat your home, which also benefits the environment by reducing the energy impact of your home.
As you may have guessed, iron doors are less prone to damage over time than your average wooden door. They’re also quite easy to clean and maintain throughout the changing of seasons. Rust and other damages are preventable with vigilant care and attention. While these doors cost more up front, you won’t need to spend money on upkeep or replacements.
The thicker the door, the stronger it will be. Iron doors are measured in gauges, and the higher the gauge, the lower the door’s thickness will be. High-quality doors tend to be thicker and stronger, so they’re worth the extra cost.
Simply put: wrought iron doors are an investment in the future of your home. Whether or not your intention is to sell in the future or not, the value automatically increases with the addition of an iron entry door.
