When you are thinking about different things you can do to improve the curb appeal of your home, one improvement you can make is upgrading to wrought iron doors. Wrought iron offers beauty and charm because it can be custom designed to create stunning and elegant doors for your home.
Plus, you can even upgrade gates and garage doors to wrought iron to further beautify the exterior of your home. In addition to increasing the curb appeal of your home, custom iron doors offer several benefits over other types of doors.
1. Custom Iron Doors Are Energy-Efficient
Modern handcrafted iron doors are assembled with some type of insulating material in between the door. This insulation material keeps your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Without this insulation, iron doors in cold weather or warm weather would not be energy efficient.
If your new door includes glass, the glass used is a superior insulated glass to further enhance the energy-efficiency of your new iron door. There is also weather-stripping used around the door’s exterior when it is installed to stop air drafts.
2. Wrought Iron Doors Are Customizable
You can choose from one of the various handcrafted door designs or work with your door manufacturer to create a customized door that reflects your style and tastes. Whether you want a single solid door or a double door with unique scrollwork and glass panes, your new door is made to your exact requirements.
3. Increases the Value of Your Home
Various types of upgrades and renovations to your home help boost its value. Even if you do not plan on remaining in your home for the rest of your life, you can sell your home for more with new iron doors as potential buyers will happily pay more.
4. Custom Iron Doors Are Easy to Maintain
With wooden doors and painted steel doors, there is much maintenance that needs to be done. You have to re-stain and reseal or repaint wooden doors annually to prevent the wood from rotting. You also need to repaint steel doors annually—not to mention, dents, dings, and other imperfections are easily noticeable.
With wrought iron, maintenance is much easier. You just use an approved oil soap and wash and dry the door—no staining, painting, or other complicated maintenance tasks. As your door ages, if it does start to show some rust, this is also easily fixed by sanding the area and using a matching color of rust-resistant paint.
5. Wrought Iron Doors Are Rust-Resistant
One of the top benefits people like about iron doors is that they resist rust. This means they last a very long time, provided door maintenance is being done regularly. As previously mentioned, if rust does start to appear, it is easily removed, and the door’s appearance restored.
6. Iron Doors Make Your Home More Secure
It can be harder for iron doors to be broken through by unwanted intruders. Their elegance and charm also imply your home most likely has a security system. The glass used in high-quality iron doors is much harder to break too.
