Curb appeal is all important when the time comes to sell your home. First impressions count for a great deal, and you want your house to pack a visual punch right off the bat. One of the best ways to increase your home’s curb appeal is having a solid iron entry door. There are many reasons why you should consider an iron front door to increase your home’s value. Iron doors are attractive, increase your security and withstand even the toughest weather conditions, improving the curb appeal of your house.
Iron Doors and Value
An iron front door is a wise choice whether you are selling your home or just upgrading or remodeling. They are high quality, have a great longevity and will increase the value of your home. They not only add real value, but perception of value as well. They could, in fact, be a deciding factor in selling your home.
Beauty and Elegance
Iron doors are distinctive and beautiful. They add a sense of style and class as well as elegance and impact. They are timeless and add a definite element of “WOW” to your home. The impact and curb appeal cannot be understated. These doors can be fashioned in an almost infinite variety of patterns and designs, with intricate and elegant patterns for any taste.
Resisting the Elements
An iron door stands the test of time, not only in image, but in a practical sense as well. These portals are sturdy and capable of withstanding the harshest elements. They require very little upkeep and will not warp, sag, swell, split, rot or crack. They can hold up to rain, sleet, snow, ice, heat and the worst environmental conditions. They are resistant to damage from nicking, scratching and denting that can result from heavy use, bumps or accidents.
Installing an iron door is one of the best things you can do to make your home more secure. Who doesn’t want to protect their family? Home invasions happen everywhere these days, even in the wealthiest communities, and the more you can do to protect your house, the more valuable it will become.
When you are looking to sell your home, potential buyers will see this solid entry and know that their new home is safe from outside intruders. In fact, just having such a door on your home is a deterrent—criminals may just see the door and move on to an easier target. Unlike a fiberglass or wooden door, nobody is going to be able to force open an iron one with a crowbar, or shoulder it in.
