Love the look of a dutch door, but not sure if it is secure enough to stand up to intruders and the weather? Many homeowners love the ability to allow one part of the door to be open and the other to be closed, so this is why many people question whether or not this type of door as an exterior door is a solid choice. Today’s Entry Doors is the top door replacement company in California. We have a proprietary system to install your dutch door and ensure it is secure. So, what are my choices regarding dutch doors, and are they secure?
First, What Exactly Are Dutch Doors?
Dutch Doors are a magnificent and beautiful statement for your front entryway. They have been around for centuries, so they are both traditional as well as artistic. The dutch door is secured with a latch and this will allow you to keep one door open and one door closed. This allows in a nice cool breeze in the summer and for you to watch your family outside or just feel like more of a part of nature. There is a door knob, or sometimes a lever, on the bottom half and a deadbolt on the top half. There is a choice between a single and double door as well.
Are Exterior Dutch Doors Secure?
Exterior Dutch Doors are just as secure as any other type of door. Because of our installation process, we can add deadbolts and other accessories to help with safety concerns. Because of the ability to open up different portions of dutch doors and still keep your family safe, it is always a good idea to keep the deadbolt secure, just like with any door, to ensure that strangers do not roam inside your home.
Are Dutch Doors A Good Choice For An Exterior Door?
Because of the uniqueness of the dutch door, they are a wonderful choice for an exterior door. They can also be referred to as double-hung or split doors and they can even increase the property value of your home. Having something personalized in the front entryway of your home can make the difference with curb appeal and how you feel about your home. A dutch door is a great choice for an exterior door because you have options on the amount of customization for both color, materials, as well as security and safety accessories.
Are Dutch Doors Energy-Efficient?
The materials that make up dutch doors are energy-efficient. Now, during the summer if you plan on opening the top of the door to allow in the breeze, it may save you on air conditioning costs if it is cool enough outside to keep from using the air conditioner. But, the materials themselves are made to keep your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Are Dutch Doors in Style?
Absolutely! Dutch doors are not only trending, but they are a major statement for your home and your aesthetic. They create a true ambience that shows the history of the home, the character of your family, and also can be as bright or as traditional as you would like. Whether your home is craftsman, modern, or traditional, dutch doors can easily brighten up that front area to make your home your own.
