Home is a place to feel invited and comfortable, whether it is for the family that lives there, or for the guests that they welcome. Stylistically and practically, two of the places where homeowners seek to achieve that sense of welcome are the places where visitors enter and exit: the front gate and the front door. While entrances that impart a sense of graciousness are effective at enhancing the overall feel and aesthetic of a home, homeowners often sacrifice security for style in achieving that effect. At the front gate it can look like either rustic and charming wood or no gates at all and at the front door that can mean ornate wood and glass designs that allow visitors
to see in and anticipate the wonderful time they are about to have.
Unfortunately those types of entrances, while beautiful, do not offer much in the way of security. Wood is easily breakable and tends to deteriorate over time, and glass is the least resistant material to potential intruders. That is why in order to achieve a high degree of security at a home’s points of entrance without sacrificing on style and aesthetics, decorative security gates and doors are a wonderful option to consider. Aside from actually securing your home, a wrought iron security door creates a strong impression that it is securing your home, adding a layer of visual deterrent against would-be intruders.
Some homeowners might think that a wrought iron security door would be unattractive or make their home look like a prison. While one could always opt for the straight institutional incarceration look, iron is an easily moldable and customizable material with a long history of manipulation into all kinds of shapes, sizes, and styles. Most manufacturers and installers of custom decorative security doors and gates are not just craftsman, they are artisans with years of experience in welding and metalworking who can easily create designs to match and compliment your home’s exterior and interior look and feel as well as the size and shape of a door or gate opening.
In addition, iron is a material that homeowners can feel comfortable investing in for the life of their home. While other aspects of home building these days have gone the way of poorer quality material with less longevity, an iron decorative security door is made to last. Unlike aluminum screen doors or even particleboard doors with hardwood veneers, high quality, thick gauge iron does not warp and bend when exposed to rain or extreme shifts in temperature. When maintenance is required, iron is also easily repaired at the point of damage and typically does not require complete de-installation and long periods of construction.
When compared to other door and gate materials, decorative iron can do it all. It can be fabricated into infinitely ornate patterns and designs, it is open and airy enough in appearance to let in light and breeze, and it is a solid and classic material that imparts a sense of permanence and history on any home. It is also unique way to achieve security and style continuity from the front gate to the front door.
