When you think about security doors, it’s possible that you might be thinking about those big ugly metal doors that are thick enough to stop a herd of charging rhino. While they are incredibly strong and indeed durable, they’re certainly not ugly. In fact modern day security screens are made to look as good as they function. Coming in a wide variety of colours, styles and designs, you can choose them to tie in with your existing décor and as such installing them can help to add kerb appeal and of course, that all-important value to your property.
Saves you money
You might not have thought that by installing a security door it’ll save you money, but it’s true. Around half the annual electricity bills goes in heating and cooling your property, but having the ability to open your front door in the summer time, thus making use of the cooling breezes without compromising on security, means that you don’t have to waste money on air conditioning. Likewise, during the winter months, it’s a relatively easy task to replace the screen with glass panels. These will add a further layer of insulation between your main door and the security door, reducing heat loss. In addition, a security door also acts as a first line of defence against the elements,thus saving your main door from over-exposure to sunlight or the rain. As a result you probably won’t need to apply further stain protectors to keep your doors looking good.
Increasing the comfort
As well as acting as a deterrent, security doors can also increase the level of comfort you have inside your home. It now means that you can let those cooling breezes circulate round your house by opening the door without letting any annoying insects or unwanted intruders into your property. What’s more, they give you the beauty and convenience of a window along with the security of a door, so they have the ability to flood your property with loads of natural light.
So there you have it, 3 key benefits that security screens can bring to your property other than for the obvious.
