When people think of screen doors they traditionally picture a door frame with a full view screen in between however there are several options for the screen coverage. There is also the option of having a pane splitting the screen in half. Some doors can come with half screen and half glass. Each consumer has their own opinion about which of these looks better in a home. Consider investing in storm doors. If the area where the home is located is prone to inclement weather this may be a good option. Not only are these doors functional but they can also look very nice in a home. During winter months the screens can be replaced with glass to look like a beautiful glass door while keeping the home extremely warm. Choosing the right one can sometimes be difficult. There are several choices out there to suit the needs of any home. Knowing the options can make it much simpler to pick screen doors that do not look cheap.
From a professional security perspective a proper home security door should be constructed of heat - strengthened (tempered) aluminum or galvanized and powder coated steel. Not only are these doors stronger they also offer greater protection against rust and corrosion which results from extended exposure to the weather. Double-check the door to make sure it has reinforced corners and that the corner joins are fully welded to the door. Preferably the home security screen door should have three or more hinges with fixed hinge pins that cannot be removed.
The grill should be at least 7mm thick and be joined at all joins by welds. A solid grill is only good if it is well secured to the security door frame. A good indicator of strength is to look at whether the grill has been riveted on or welded with welding being the stronger alternative. The final consideration is the home security door lock. A proper home security door lock should have a five pin cylinder or equivalent and be key operated. To add strength to the overall strength of the home security door I recommend a door with a three point lock. The three point home security door lock makes it extremely difficult to rip the door from its hinges while also spreading the load of the force applied by the person attempting to break through the door. Home security screen doors are an important piece of your overall home security system and are your front line defense against would be intruders. If considering home security screens make sure you check all the features of the product as a weakness in one area of construction n can have a significant impact on both your personal safety and the protection of your valuables.
If before installing the security screen doors you find that you must have your door frames reinforced this would mean an additional cost of around $50 to $250; depending on the quality of services and materials you use. Besides these some companies provide the facility of choosing your set of doorknobs or locksets. If you decide to opt for it it would mean extra charges of around $20 to $170. The winter days are gone and you have spring and then summer upon you. Leaving your doors and windows wide open to welcome the wonderful season into your home will be very tempting but unfortunately the bugs and insects will come in too. So the ideal solution is to install screen doors that help to keep away bugs but welcome in the cool air.
