I would venture to guess that many of you reading this either a) did not realize there was such a thing as iron doors for homes, or b) did not realize how popular they are. So with that in mind, and as I am always one to spur a little creativity, I thought I’d post a few reasons for their popularity.
But first, what’s an iron door, you ask? I’m glad you did. Here are a couple we installed recently in new homes.
So here we go. Three reasons to install an iron door on your home.
Reason #1. Iron Doors require little to no maintenance. Obviously, dust can get on anything. But there is never any need to paint or stain an iron door, or the frame. When it’s installed, your finished, forever. Maybe a swiffer now and then and you’re golden.
Reason #2. Iron Doors can be made to fit just about any opening. Size and shape is no problem (well, within reason I suppose). We haven’t come across anything yet we couldn’t retrofit. Single, double, arch-top, transom, whatever.
Reason #3. Iron Doors are easy to get installed. OK, this should be qualified I suppose. It is iron after all so its not exactly light. Even so, a professional, experienced installer (which we are) can do it quickly and make it look as great as your home deserves.
Here is a before and after of a job we did recently.
If I may add a fourth reason, just look at them! Iron doors are the coolest. Now I’ll admit that they may not be a fit for every home but boy are they great looking!
