What do you think of when you see an iron door on a residential property?
While aesthetics and curb appeal might immediately come to mind when you spot this type of door, it’s important to note that iron doors have many other benefits — and one of these key benefits is that they’re extremely durable and able to protect your property from the severe weather that New York is increasingly enduring each year. Snowstorms, severe thunderstorms and even hurricanes are no match for a properly installed iron door. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at just how significant of a role iron doors can play in safeguarding your property when Mother Nature strikes.
How Iron Front Doors Help Protect Your Property
They’re Extremely Durable
The benefits of iron doors from a durability standpoint are two-fold. On one hand, these types of doors provide excellent security. In fact, they’re the sturdiest and most durable of any type of door, making it next to impossible for anyone to penetrate and gain entry to your home. This durability and security are also ideal when it comes to protecting your home from natural disasters. With New York susceptible to blizzards, hurricanes and other types of severe weather, residential iron front doors can help provide an enhanced level of security. Think of iron doors as hurricane impact doors, as pressure testing has shown that they’re able to withstand hurricane-force winds.
New York is susceptible to some unique weather at all times of the year. Iron doors can serve as a key ally in protecting any property from water intrusion, wind damage and more.
They Have Insulating Properties
Iron doors in cold weather excel, helping keep your home more comfortable when the temperatures outside of your home are anything but. Residential iron doors are available with advanced thermal insulation, which helps to reduce any drafts around entry points and keep your home warmer during the winter months. Iron doors also hold heat very well, which makes them an ideal option for the exterior of your home. In addition to keeping your home more comfortable, they can help reduce the strain on your HVAC equipment.
Another benefit of these insulating properties is that it helps with noise reduction. You’re less likely to hear any traffic or activity outside of your home, and any severe weather won’t sound quite as threatening as it’s happening.
They Don’t Easily Damage
Iron doors are fire, mold, moisture and pest resistant. In essence, they’re somewhat maintenance-free. Iron doors are sturdy, durable and they won’t wear down over time after coming into contact with the elements. What’s more, is that they’re very easy to clean. If iron doors get dirty, all you’ll need to use to clean them is dish soap and water.
