At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we know that your family is the most important thing to you and when you have a place to call home, it should be a place where you all feel safe. By installing a security door, you can rest easy knowing that you and your family are protected from a variety of outdoor threats.
When it comes to security doors, many people think of a steel or fiberglass front door that can add strength to your home. While these are a great choice, there are other security doors that can be installed in front of front doors for added protection. These doors are often grated storm doors built with heavy-duty steel frames. Between the grates, these doors usually have a metal mesh screen or shatter-resistant glass to prevent break-ins. Some doors also come with tamper-resistant hinges and a heavy-duty closer for even more security. Which type of door you choose depends on your style, budget, and needs.
To homeowners, the main appeal of a security door is its safety and protection, but these doors can also help with energy efficiency. When you have a security door in addition to a front door, you’ll get a double barrier against cold drafts in the winter and warm drafts in the summer. This means that you’ll be able to better insulate your home and use your air conditioning or heat less often. This is also appealing to homeowners on a budget and homeowners who want to go green.
For Even More Security…
There are several ways you can add even more security to your home. For instance, by adding a deadbolt lock, an electronic lock, a heavy-duty strike plate, or even a double-cylinder deadbolt lock, which locks from both the inside and the outside. You can also look into a trustworthy alarm system and/or video monitoring for extra peace of mind.
