Is there anything more sturdy and reliable than iron? Though first developed for less practical use in the 12th century, it wasn’t until 16th century Europeans perfected iron’s use to help change the way we do most things, including agricultural practices, artistic endeavors, and as a protective material for our homes and businesses.
In fact, some even argue that ironwork helped people lead a more secure life through particularly strong household developments like iron doors and gates.
From the medieval period, use of ironwork for decorative purposes became more common. Iron was used to protect doors and windows of valuable places from attack from raiders…
Now, hundreds of years later, little has changed in how we use iron as a home security agent, and even though “attacking raiders” are less of a home concern, hand crafted iron doors still help us protect the things we value most.
Installing an Iron Door
Need help deciding if an iron door is right for you? Consider these factors when choosing an iron door for your home.
– Pick a style and design that fits your home’s aesthetic. If you are looking for more of an overall change, consider basing your home’s new look on a beautifully hand crafted iron door.
– Don’t forget about your personal preference when choosing an iron door for your home. While your home’s style should help you make a selection, your personal choice is just as important to which door you want.
– Want to increase your home’s resale value? Install an iron door. Some argue that an iron door can increase your home’s resale value by 5%. While 5% doesn’t sound like a huge amount, once you factor it into the overall, a little bit goes a long way.
– Iron doors increase your home’s security. Even if your current level of worry about home security is low, with an iron door it can be even lower. Iron brings with it a level of toughness that has withstood the test of time, through hundreds of years, just like we mentioned above.
