At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we know that your family is the most important thing to you and your home should be a place where they feel safe. With a security door, you can rest easy knowing you and your family are protected from a variety of outdoor threats.
When you think about security doors, you likely think of a steel or fiberglass front door that can add strength and durability to your home. While these are a great choice, there are other security doors that can be installed in front of them for added protection. These doors are often grated storm doors with heavy-duty frames built from steel. Between the grates, they usually have shatter-resistant glass or a metal screen to prevent break-ins. Some doors also come with tamper-resistant hinges and a heavy-duty closer. When you choose a door, consider your budget, your style, and your needs.
Usually the appeal of a security door is its safety and protection, but these doors can also help reduce drafts from entering your home. With a security door in addition to a front door, you’ll get a double barrier against cold winds in the winter and warm winds in the summer. This means that you’ll also be able to better insulate your home and use your heat or air conditioning less often, which is often appealing to homeowners on a budget and homeowners who want to go green.
To add even more security to your home, try 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 protection.
