According to a Consumer Reports study, the material used doesn’t make a difference for break-ins that involve kicking down the door. What does make a difference is the hardware: the strike plate and deadbolt. The strike plate is the piece of metal on the door jamb with a hole for the deadbolt. To reinforce the locks, we can add a stronger strike plate and make sure the deadbolt is at least 1-inch long.
That said, certain materials are sturdier than others. An exterior door made of thick wood or wrought iron feels solid and secure. For steel door, keep in mind that the gauge number indicates thickness. The lower the number, the thicker the steel.
A storm door can add more security to your home’s entrance. If you’re going for sliding doors, make sure they have reinforced glass. You can also place a wood dowel in the track to help prevent forced entry.
With proper care, an exterior door should last for decades. Certain materials, however, are more weather-resistant. Fibreglass and wrought-iron doors require minimal care, and they can withstand the elements. Fibreglass, in particular, resists dents, rust, and warping. Steel doors are also weather-resistant, though they’re more prone to scratches than fibreglass doors.
Wood doors are beautiful, but they’re also high maintenance! Keep your wood door away from water; it’s prone to swelling, shrinking, and warping. Install it in a place that’s sheltered from rain. Make sure to regularly clear out any gutters overhanging the doorway. As for cleaning your exterior door, you can remove dirt with mild soap and water, but you should also check the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions.
Something you should do for every door is check the weather stripping every few years. We can replace it if it’s cracked, torn, brittle, or gummy. If it’s starting to fall off, we can reinstall it.
