Neighborhoods with historical homes are always a pleasure to visit. Not only do you get a glimpse into a time when things were simpler, but also a time when communities were stronger, people were different, and homes had character. Historical homes have a lot of personality, with wraparound porches, brightly painted trim, leaded glass, and details you just don’t see anymore in modern architecture. So why not spoil your historical home with something that contributes to not only its aesthetic beauty, but also augments its primary function, which is to be a place of solace and protection.
An iron door can beautify your already beautiful historical home, but it can also give it the strength it needs to keep out unwanted visitors, and all the while look good doing it! Iron doors never look out of place on a historical home either, which is something that cannot be said for a modern steel door. Wooden doors look great, but when it comes to keeping intruders out, a wooden door is only a few kicks away from being no door at all. One drawback to a historical home, of course, is that its outward beauty might suggest to a would be burglar that there are treasures inside, ripe for the picking.
Another drawback to having a historical home is how the standards of heating and insulation have changed over time. The original door to your home, or recent modern additions, probably aren’t the best for keeping the weather out. Our selection of iron doors includes doors which as beautiful, strong, and also create a thermal break to keep the heat out and the cool in for those long Texas summers.
