When it comes to looking for the best doors for your home, iron doors are the best solution due to their strong material. But along with their durability, there are many other benefits for having an iron door in your home. But before you decide to get a custom iron door, you need to decide which iron door is best for you and your home. Here at Universal Iron Doors, we have doors that come in all shapes and sizes. One main element that you will have to decide on is whether you house is suitable for a single or double iron door.  Here are a few factors that will help guide your decision.


How much space do you have in your home for an iron door?

It essentially all comes down to the space that you have available in your home. For example, if you already have a double door, you are going to need to fill that exact same space either with another double iron door or a single iron door with insert sidelights to make up for the extra space.

Other factors that should be taken into account is the amount of space that will be needed for installation. You contractors will need to cut a rough opening of about ¾ inches to make room to install the iron door. Additionally, a doorjamb/ door frame will need to be installed and will take up more space


Can your home accommodate different door shapes?

Here at Universal Iron Doors we have 3 common door shapes: straight top, eyebrow top, and arched top. The straight top is the standard horizontal door top, the eyebrow top is a door with a slightly curved top, and the arched top are doors with a perfectly round top like a half-circle. While all of these designs are beautiful, you will have to take into account the structure of your building because in order to accommodate a unique shape, you property should be a structurally sound building.
