Find Pivot, Double, Wood, Metal and Glass Entry Door

Your choice in your front door’s material will not only dictate its style but also its durability and strength. Wood, fiberglass and steel are three common choices for entry doors. Read below to find out more.
• Wood: Sturdy and durable, wood doors are constructed with a frame and panel to stand up against different weather patterns. Because they’re heavier, they provide good security, and are available in a range of styles to fit your home’s décor. Be sure to treat the entire door: front, back, top, bottom and sides to fully protect the wood.
• Fiberglass: Long-lasting and practical, fiberglass doors resemble wood due to a wood grain texture molded into the door. They’re more durable than wood, are energy efficient and resist dents, cracks, rot, rust and warping. Available in a variety of finishes, fiberglass doors can be stained or painted to complement your home’s exterior.
• Steel: Stronger than wood and fiberglass doors, steel doors are extremely durable, weather resistant and energy efficient. Because they’re weather-stripped, they don’t shrink, swell or warp, requiring minimal maintenance, even against extreme weather. Steel doors can be painted or finished with a coating that looks like real wood.

What should I think about in terms of insulation?

Front doors should not only be able to withstand the elements themselves, but also protect you from the elements while you’re indoors. Look for doors with a foam insulation or double-panel glass to maintain heat in cooler climates, and prevent drafts by weather-stripping around your door.

Should I add extra windows to my front door?

If you lack windows along your front entry, consider adding them to the door itself with glass panels. Choose from decorative panels for added style or you can even add sidelights or transom, or a crosspiece separating your door from a window above it, above the door. Consider adding windows with a low-emissivity coating to filter harmful rays, or thick glass that helps muffle sounds from the outdoors.

What kinds of doorknobs and locks should I consider?

This decision rests primarily on the look you’d like to achieve with your front door. You can go simple, contemporary, luxurious or traditional, all by what you choose for hardware. In terms of the lock, a deadbolt is recommended as a maximum security lock. Look for a deadbolt that extends at least one inch beyond the edge of the door for the best results.

Stainless Steel Door

I bought a salvaged stainless steel door, from an old 50's diner or something. Double-acting hinges, porthole window, fan-scallop pressed pattern, etc.
However, the glass is missing, the hinges appear to be (rusted?) stuck, and the door needs to be cleaned/polished, among other repairs.
I don't want to drag this heavy door all around the city, a hardware guy for handle & hinges, refinsher for polish, glass guy for the window, etc. Any thoughts on a do-it-all type of place for this kind of project??

Clear glass insert for steel entry door?

Steel entry door has typical stained glass-like glass insert (22 x 36).
You-know-who wants a clear glass panel instead -she has a work studio in entry room/living.
I looked online and all I saw were variations around the stained glass theme, no solid (double pane) glass.
Any clue where to look?
BTW, I assume the changeover is trivial, remove plastic retainer strips/frame, right?

Double deadbolt

I have double lock deadbolts and I have to admit that although I always keep a key in the inside lock for quick escape, a few times someone took it out to get into the garage. I think attaching the inside key to a steel cable and hanging it near the lock so that it can't be taken away may work, since someone breaking a door window may give up after not finding an inside latch. As other people mentioned, safety should be the first concern, and this isn't the safest method.

  • Avatar weirdpuffyninja Samsung refrigerator?
    Apr 13, 2009 by weirdpuffyninja | Posted in Other - Food & Drink

    I want a samsung refrigerator that has a twin cooling system and has double doors and a freezer/compartment at the bottom. It looks like this: http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg27/redtiger945/refriger.jpg
    Also, the bottom is a freezer and the top part of it is a refrigerator. You can also switch it so that the top can be a freezer and the bottom can be a refrigerator.

    • What's the question? I used to sell those when I worked at Best Buy. The Samsung models were 4 doors though.
