A secure door means making the right decision for each entry point in your home. Whether you are looking for something attractive for the front of your home or you want the most secure door for your garage, back or side entrance, it’s important to keep in mind that each type has its own advantages.
Different Door Materials
For example, FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Polyester) doors won’t crack, split, rot or rust. These doors are lightweight as well as energy efficient. Additionally, because the color goes all the way through, it will never need painting and scratches don’t show, eliminating the need for repainting.
Hollow metal doors are made with reinforced sheet steel with an insulated core. These doors are extremely durable and easy to maintain. Of course, wood doors are always popular and are available with a wide variety of veneers, giving homeowners exceptional flexibility in choosing the right design style for their home.
Choosing the Locks
Of course, an experienced locksmith will also be able to help with choosing the best lock for your needs. For example, there are locksets on handles as well as single and double cylinder deadbolts and keyless locks. Each type of lock offers a different level of protection. Locks on handsets are typically rated as medium security locks.
Deadbolts are definitely a step up in security; however, there’s no doubt that a keyless system offers an advanced level of security that can provide the best security as well as the benefit of added convenience. You can change the code when needed or even choose a keyless system that sounds an alarm if the wrong code is keyed in.
