What To Look For In Affordable Iron Doors
We make affordable Iron Doors.
That is right, we build affordable iron doors. The perception that iron doors are either very expensive and well made or cheap and of poor quality is somewhat ingrained in our minds. The reality is that iron doors can be made for normal budgets and be of high quality. All you have to do is know what to look for. Here are a few tips to help you.
The best quality iron doors are made with 12 gauge tubing and solid forgings. Thinner tubing is not durable enough to last the generations that these doors should. While you are looking at the thickness of the metal used in the door, look at the hardware. The hinges should be very sturdy and easy to maintenance. These are very heavy doors and need a correlating support system. Affordable iron doors that are of high quality will have proper mechanisms in place.
To buy affordable iron doors does not mean that you have to buy off the rack, so to speak. You should be able to work with a designer to create your own personal scrolling or image within the door. That same work can be put into stairways, gates, or garage doors to add symmetry to your property. Affordable does not have to mean generic with iron doors.
Quality construction is a must in any product, but it is especially important with affordable iron doors. Do you want anyone who comes to your door to see every weld? Of course not. As you are shopping for iron doors, look for welds. Are the window panes hinged for easy cleaning? High quality doors should have no visible welds and hinged glass. Anything less is poor workmanship.
Keeping the quality
The challenge of creating affordable iron doors is somewhat an ongoing battle. As the price of materials increase, many companies struggle to maintain quality without increasing price dramatically. If you look for the three things mentioned in this post, you will be able to find the high quality doors that you want without draining your bank account.
