Benefits of Having a Modern Iron Door

 Benefits of Having a Modern Iron Door

Modern iron doors are usually considered to be rather expensive, which is why many people skip them altogether. However, these iron doors provide benefits that go beyond improved aesthetics and curb appeal. The following are some of the major benefits you can enjoy with a modern iron door.

1.    Boost Your Home Value

Your curb appeal does impact the overall value of your home, particularly if you are looking to sell the house. Getting a modern iron door allows you to capitalize on this aspect with ease. In fact, this is one of the few home additions and renovations that gives you a 90% return on investment on the sale of your house. You will also be able to get more buyers because of the improved curb appeal. Even if you don’t want to sell, a good entry door is an amazing addition to make to your house.

2.    Better Security

When it comes to security, a modern iron door actually works as a great deterrent because burglars view it as too much work. Not only will the door make more noise, it will also require more work to break in. Burglars are usually looking for a noise-less, quick option and usually steer clear of iron doors for this reason. Even wrought iron doors with glass are given a wide berth because the intricate designs of the iron bar don’t allow for one to break the glass and manipulate the lock with ease.

3.    An Investment

Iron doors have a really long life and can easily last you for 20 years if well looked after. In fact, some modern iron doors are actually centuries old. While they might be rusted, they can easily be restored and many are found to be in perfectly good condition. They are also less prone to rotting, rusting and other signs of deterioration. Modern iron doors can also withstand extreme weather conditions, pressure and other natural elements without requiring repairs. Keep in mind that you do have to maintain the doors. With proper maintenance, there is nothing to worry about.

This stylish single door would go well with a wide array of different housing styles, especially for Bungalow and Craftsman style homes. Craftsman homes emphasize natural materials like brick, stone, and wood. Altamura’s original and artistic scrollwork are added to the top and bottom of the door to give it a bolder look, which accents the natural materials of Craftsman homes very nicely. All custom iron door designs are available with full round top, eyebrow arch top or flat top options depending on your preferred tastes.

These homes also usually feature ornamentation, tall columns and elliptical fan shaped windows, which accompanies the ornate Altamura custom iron door well. For those homes with large curved steps that lead up to the entrance, the Altamura door can also be ordered in a double door configuration.
