The entry doors of your home might look impenetrable, but the majority of them may only need one strong kick to be broken. You can take action to make them virtually impossible to be broken through by discussing home security measures and entry door reinforcement with our experts at Eastway Lock & Key.
Doors And Door Repair Problems Caused By Crime
Most of the damage done to an exterior door because of an attempted burglary occurs around the lock and doorframe. The majority of doors are designed for their cosmetic appearance and not entry door reinforcement. Replacing the old door with the same type is only asking for more trouble. If an intruder damaged your exterior door, go ahead and invest in a solid door.
Look for solid wood replacement doors. Most doors have hollow centers, but a solid wood door is much stronger and resistant to impact from blunt objects. A solid wooden door is heavier than traditional wood doors with hollow centers. You will pay more money for the product, but get better quality out of every dollar spent.
Steel doors make a great deterrent to crime. Steel doors will have to be reinforced to support the extra weight. Steel thickness is the key to strength in the product. Steel is measured by the gauge thickness. Lower numbers mean thicker while higher means thinner. You will spend more money on a steel door, but never have to worry about someone kicking the front door in.
A fiberglass door can provide strength and security. Fiberglass is more resistant to deterioration over time. The door will never rust, warp or catch on fire. Look for quality and reputation in the company if you are in the market for a fiberglass reinforced entry door.
