You might have seen iron doors on other people’s houses and wanted one, but didn’t feel like it was the right time for a new door. Well, here are a few times that are right to get one.
You’re Renovating The Whole Look
There was a time when people insisted on ‘modernizing’ perfectly good historical homes. When you buy one that has been ‘updated’ and you want the historic grandeur back, buying a wrought iron door is a good way to start your redecorating.
You might also just not like how your house presents itself to the rest of the neighborhood. It might be tired and need a little touch of luxury. A wrought iron door can be the very thing to make your house look fancy. It is, after all, the very first thing anyone approaching your house would see. They will be amazed by the first impressions an iron door makes.
You Want To Keep Your House Cool
Thermally broken iron doors, especially ones with double glass panes, excel at keeping hot air out and cool air in. The iron itself has high thermal mass, meaning that it catches and holds heat for a long time. Inside the iron is insulation, which has thermal gaps that break up any heat energy trying to get into your house. This will keep your energy bill low and your foyer cool.
A major selling point for anyone in the market for a new home is how nice it looks from the front. Very few people want to buy a house that they will have to make look presentable after spending plenty on acquiring it. Impress the new owners with a shiny iron door that they will treasure for years to come.
Your Old Door Just Looks Scruffy
Other types of doors can acquire scratches and dings, and the little dents can make a door look shabby. A brand-new door will make the whole front of your home look cared-for.
