Three Things To Think About When Choosing A New Steel Door

Buying a new steel door can be a great investment in your home.   Steel doors are extremely durable and provide a clean modern look to any home.

Three Things To Think About When Choosing A New Steel Door

If you are considering buying a new steel door, here are three questions to think about:

Will my door be energy efficient? 

Doors can help make your home more energy efficient.  The right door will keep you from losing heat or cold air from your home and will lower your electric bills.

To choose the right door, check the label from the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC).  Doors rated by the NFCR will have a label that allows you to compare the energy efficiency of each door in several categories.  By comparing the labels of different doors, you can figure out the best steel door for your home.

Do I want doors made of thermally broken steel?

Thermally broken steel is a piece of steel with insulation in the middle.  This insulation helps limit energy transfer between the two pieces of steel.  When used in doors, it helps reduce energy costs and blocks noise.  In addition, thermally broken doors have less condensation build up on their exteriors.  Doors made of thermally broken steel are a great option for many homes and should be something you consider when buying a new door.

What options do I want to add to  my steel door? 

When choosing a steel door, there are many options to think about adding to your door.  Here are some of the most common:

  • What type of glass do I want in my door?
  • What type of door handles do I want to install in my door?
  • Do I want my door to swing inward or outward?
  • Should I paint my steel door?

There are many different customizable options for a steel door.  By looking at all your options, you can choose the ones that best fit your home and lifestyle.
