How Security Doors Can Give Peace of Mind

As temperatures warm, homeowners always seem to be faced with a dilemma. Open up the windows and doors to enjoy the breeze or stay safe and secure behind locked doors and windows. But there’s a solution that can allow you to enjoy pleasant spring weather while instilling a peace of mind: Security screen doors.

About security screen doors

Security screen doors are designed to allow you to open your home to enjoy the breeze like traditional screen doors, but as the name suggests, security screen doors go further. Security screen doors are designed to protect your home from intruders. When you have a security screen door in place, you’re protected by:

• A break-in-resistant door frame. Security screen doors are made of tougher metals than traditional screen doors. Generally, doors are constructed of stainless steel, industrial aluminum or other alloys. Regardless of material, all security screen door frames are engineered to be able to withstand the force of an attempted break-in.

• Specialized mountings. Security screen doors are installed with flush mountings. These specialized mountings give the doors added strength, and they make it difficult for doors to be pried open or removed for burglars to gain entry.

• Tougher screen materials. Many security screen doors either come or can be installed, with tougher mesh that can’t be forced through or cut. Security screens can be made from stainless steel or coated mesh that make doors nearly impossible for criminals to break through.

• Secure locks. Security screen doors lock firmly into place. When you’re home, you can turn the lock to keep your security screen door tightly in place. Many security screen doors come with a variety of lock options so you can choose the lock system that feels most secure for your home.

• Warranties. It’s impossible to prevent 100 percent of break-ins, but most security screen door companies are so confident in their products and their products’ ability to keep your home safe, that they offer warranties to replace doors, and some of the home damage or theft costs, if an intruder is able to bypass your security screen door and enter your home.

Replacement Bug Screens

Bug screens are one of the first things to show wear on the outside of your home. Whether its from a pet’s claws or bearing the brunt of California wind and sun, screens break down over time.

Unfortunately, replacing window screens isn’t as easy as going to the hardware store to buy replacements; there is no standard screen size; patches can only make your screens look worse; and stretching new screen mesh over an old frame will only make the frame-warp and bow.

Upgrade Your Home with a Security Door

Traditional screen doors aren’t known for their security features. The frames tend to be flimsy, and screens can be punched in or slashed. Over time, they break down and become weaker and weaker. So what’s a homeowner to do when he or she wants to enjoy the breezy convenience of a front door without compromising the security of his or her home? Consider a security screen door!

What is a security screen door?

A security screen door is much like a traditional screen door, on appearance, but it’s made from heavy-duty materials that make it more difficult for intruders to bypass. Security screen doors frames are made from heavier metals, like architectural grade aluminum, that can’t be forced open. They’re secured in place with similarly heavy-duty hardware, and the screens themselves are manufactured from stainless steel mesh that can’t be slashed or pushed through the way traditional screens can. Some security screen doors are overlayed with metal designs that further prohibit access to the screen or entryway. They also can feature heavy deadbolts so they can be safely locked.

Will a security screen door inhibit the look of my home?

Security screen doors might conjure up visions of institutional-looking doors with ugly metal bars. That’s not the case with today’s modern screen doors! Today’s security doors come in a variety of looks and styles to fit any home. They feature designs that range from classic to contemporary, and they can upgrade and enhance the look of your home. You can even find security screen doors that look exactly like traditional screen doors, so no one will be able to tell the difference.

What are the other benefits of a security screen door?

While their primary purpose might be security, screen doors have many other benefits as well. Of course, security screen doors allow you to open up your door and enjoy pleasant breezes and pleasant views without having to worry about intruders. Security screen doors also can lower your home-energy bills. They can cool your home with a breeze while also helping to block the sun’s rays from entering your home. If you have a pet, your security screen door will stand up to the abuse of their claws or body weight. And when you add a decorative front door to your home, you’ll instantly upgrade your home’s style and curb appeal.

What types of doors are suitable for security screen doors?

Security screen doors are suitable for nearly any type of door! Front doors, back doors, side garage doors can all be fitted with security screen doors to make your home safer. Security screen doors can even be fitted to French or double doors.
