What You Need to Know When Buying a Security Door

A beautiful, secure home entry door

A security door is like a traditional entry door, but it has added durability and strength to stand up to harsher conditions and intruders. If you want the best possible protection for your family, consider installing security doors in your home. New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc., is a family-owned and operated business offering remodeling services like exterior doors, siding, and window installation throughout northern New Jersey. Here, we’ll share information homeowners should know when considering a security door for their home.

Does a Security Door Really Work?

Security doors are usually constructed with heavy-duty reinforced steel and hidden hinges that can’t be removed. This makes them extra strong to withstand harsh weather conditions and pests, wear and tear, and intrusion attempts. For security doors to work properly, they must be built correctly and with high-quality materials.

At New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc., we’re happy to provide our customers with HGI Steel Security Storm Doors. These doors undergo a 10-step construction process that ensures their strength and durability. The process includes:

  • Starting with furniture-grade, 16-gauge hot rolled steel that is cut to the desired length
  • Skilled technicians manipulate the steel to create unique designs
  • Welding together all mitered corners and joints for a solid construction
  • Hand-grinding each area with three different abrasives until they’re all smooth
  • A five-stage wash system that degreases, rinses, and applies phosphate and seal and a polyester powder coating to the doors
  • Placing the doors in the oven for 20 minutes at 425 degrees to fuse the powder with the metal, adding extra durability
  • Customizing the doors with hardware, glass, screens, and frames
  • Inspecting doors for quality

This process ensures that any security door you get from New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc., will work properly and provide the protection you desire.

Is There a Range of Style Options?

You may be imagining all security doors as drab and gray, but that’s far from the truth. Nowadays, you can choose from a wide range of colors, designs, hardware, and sizes for your security door that will match the existing aesthetic of your home. New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc., believes that our customers shouldn’t have to choose between durable protection and a stylish look.

Does the Supplier Complete the Installation?

If you’re considering buying a security door, you might be wondering who does the installation, whether it’s the supplier of the door, the manufacturer, or a separate contractor. The answer will depend on where you get your security door and it’s important to discuss with your supplier how much experience they have with security door installation, any questions about warranties, and how long delivery and installation will take.
