Is there anything more important than home security? When you’re at home, you should feel like you and your loved ones are safe and secure. One way to ensure that feeling is to install a good security door. 
Security doors can offer an array of benefits, from deterring burglars to protecting your home from storms. No matter where you live or what size house you have, a security door can help keep you safe. 
As with any home improvement project, installing a security door is an undertaking that requires careful consideration. There are several options available; how will you know which security doors are right for you? 
There are a few factors that can help you choose the perfect door for your home. Read on to learn five things to consider when shopping for a security door. 

  1. Understand Your Security Needs

What is your main reason for getting a security door? Are you looking to scare off potential burglars? Do you want an added layer of protection from bad weather? Are you just looking to add some value to your home? 
All of these are valid reasons. Deciding which one is most important will help you narrow down the field–if you know you’re looking for weather protection, you can focus on security storm doors, for instance. 

  1. Consider the Material

There are two main materials used for security doors: steel and aluminum. Each has benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to know which one you want before you make a purchase. 
Steel is the stronger of the two materials, but it requires more upkeep to prevent rust. Aluminum doors need to be double the width of steel doors to compensate for their lower strength, but rust isn’t an issue. 

  1. Prepare for the Price

Price is always an important factor when renovating a home. Several things can impact the price of your security door, including material–aluminum doors are more expensive. 
Security door locks also affect the price of your installation. The more complex the locking mechanism, the more you’re going to pay. 

  1. Choose Your Screen

Security screen doors offer more customization options than you might imagine! There are several types of screens to choose from, offering variations in color, mesh size, and more. 
Security door screens often use vinyl-coated fiberglass mesh, but aluminum is another popular option. A tight mesh helps keep small insects out of your home.  

  1. Don’t Neglect Style

Keep in mind that a security door will be visible on your home’s exterior. You’ll want to choose a security door that fits your home’s aesthetic and your own personal sense of style. 
Luckily, it’s easy to find quality security doors in a variety of designs. No matter what kind of door design you like, you should be able to find a security door you love. 

Find the Perfect Security Doors 

Security doors are a simple but effective way to make your home safer. By improving your front door security with a high-quality security door, you’re protecting yourself and your loved ones.
