Sometimes, finding a high-quality and safe door isn’t as simple as black and white or open and shut.
Whether you just live in a windy city or have a teenager trying to make a point, it’s smart to make a long-term investment in doors that can survive any kind of slam.
If you’re currently investigating door installation in Toronto for replacement or brand new doors, we’ve got you covered. Here are 3 of our top door style selections to ensure that your home’s doors can survive any slam.
When was the last time you replaced your front door? Having a stable and strong front door is crucial for establishing security for your home, and fibreglass doors are one of the best options available on the market.
A high-quality door that is installed professionally and properly should last for 10 years or longer and if you invest in one, it will definitely save cash from spending on several replacement doors in the long-run.
Fibreglass door systems are exceptionally durable and developed to withstand the most unforgiving climates, dings and dents. If you’re browsing for a new or replacement steel or wood front door, we strongly recommend looking into a fibreglass option.
Fibreglass as a material is a phenomenal substitution for steel for wood for a number of reasons.
First, they offer the same (if not more) aesthetic appeal of traditional steel or wood doors. The material offers high resistance to severe weather conditions and the highest level of protection against shape warping, scratches, and cracks.
Second, Fibreglass windows can be designed in a plethora of styles that fit your personal aesthetic, including a wood-like finish. Getting a fibreglass door with a wood-like finish allows you to get optimum security and a natural-looking textured finish, so you can have your cake and eat it too.
Ultimately, a fibreglass style of door can definitely survive wind or an angry slam.
Storm doors were certainly named accurately as one of the door’s main purposes is to block out storm debris and dirt.
This style of door is typically layered with a second door, but has an important role serving as an initial buffer from outside elements and unwanted insects or creatures. Not only does having a second storm door protect the home from natural elements, but it acts as a second security barrier and layer of privacy. Storm doors are a great way to add both value and security to your family home.
Some people avoid getting a storm door installation in Toronto as they are concerned about the second layer obstructing the look of a decorative front door. However, there are storm door options available to highlight and compliment your front door’s look. There are storm doors with large energy-efficient glass panels showcasing the front door. While some may worry that the glass won’t be slam-proof, it is designed to be durable enough to withstand inclement weather conditions and break-ins. High-quality locking mechanisms are also installed with full view designs so you can screen unexpected visitors and avoid opening your home completely.
