At Artistic Iron Works in Las Vegas, we have decades of experience crafting elegant custom doors that are up to modern safety standards. You don’t want to wait until you hear about a burglary happening in your neighborhood to protect your family and property—if your door shows wear and damage, it may be time to consider a replacement.
Here are 4 signs it’s time for a new security door installation.
- The door, jamb, or frame are warped.
- The screen, lock, or hinges are cracked or rusted.
- The latch jiggles or fails to lock or shut properly.
- The style no longer matches your home’s exterior.
1. The Door, Jamb, Or Frame Are Visibly Misshapen
As your home ages, you might notice the door, jamb, or frame becoming warped or changing shape. This puts excess stress on the hinges, which could cause them to break under pressure.
2. There Are Signs Of Severe Rust
Rust decreases the strength and durability of metal materials, making them very brittle. A trespasser may be able to smash through your rusty door, remove it from the hinges, or destroy the lock using sheer force alone.
If you want to install a replacement that will withstand the elements for many years, it might be worth investing in a wrought iron door – powder-coated in a rust-resistant, protective layer.
3. The Latch Won’t Shut Or Lock Securely
If you struggle to get your security door closed, or it doesn’t latch when you shut it, it’s probably time for a replacement. Likewise, if you can unlock it just by jiggling the handle a few times, it’s effectively useless against home intruders.
A faulty lock is just there for show, no matter how great the rest of your security door works.
4. Your Security Door No Longer Matches Your Home
If you’ve recently renovated your front porch, landscape, or your home’s exterior, you might want to consider upgrading your door, too—especially if it no longer matches your new style. A custom wrought iron security door from Artistic Iron Works is not just for keeping thieves out; it’s also great for making your property more aesthetically pleasing to visitors and neighbors.
