Just How Secure Are New Custom Fiberglass Entry Doors?
Just How Secure Are The Entry Doors Installed By Today’s Entry Doors?
Learn How We Reinforce The Vulnerable Points To Secure Orange County Homes
When you invest in a gorgeous new custom-designed entry door, you know it’s about much more than just beauty and aesthetics. The door’s primary function is to exist as a portal that also helps SECURE your home.
This is why we ONLY install The Very Best Doors that are well-built, incredibly sturdy, long-lasting, durable, and strong for our Orange County customers (and surrounding areas).
But here’s the secret – when it comes to Fiberglass Doors or really any other residential door, security doesn’t come primarily from the lock and hardware. Those definitely help, but when someone really wants to get inside, they need to break through the points of the door where the locks meet the frame (which hopefully isn’t in a weakened state).
A few quick points on the subject you should know:
- A home intrusion is committed every 16 seconds in the United States.
- Around 60% of burglars use forcible entry to gain access to a home.
- Typically, burglars spend less than 60 seconds breaking into a home.
- The more difficult it is to gain access, the more likely a burglar is to reconsider the attack.
What About Barricades Or Braces?
They’re effective, sure, but the downside of these devices is that they can only be armed when you’re inside. They leave your home vulnerable when you’re away.
To show you an integral part of our Proven Process, below is a video we made to illustrate the extra steps we take to ensure your new high-caliber entry door is EXTRA secure. We included a full transcription below as well.
“Home invasion can happen to anybody, at any time. Your front or side door could be a vulnerable point of entry. Properly installed, your door lock is only part of the answer. Usually the problem isn’t the door or the hardware, it’s the wood frame that surrounds the door. The weak points are where the locks engage the frame.”
“Today’s Entry Doors uses a proprietary installation method to enhance security at these vulnerable points. We go above and beyond just following manufacturer instructions. We reinforce those areas of concern with individual 16-guage galvanized steel plates which are in turn secured to the house framing.”
“Then, on the other side of the framing, each hinge is also reinforced by replacing two standard hinge screws with two 3-inch #10 screws. This not only adds strength, but keeps the jams from being spread apart. ”
“No other door dealer or big box goes to these extremes to secure your home. We know that buying an entry door is about security as much as it is about looks and functionality. That’s why each and every new door installed by Today’s Entry Doors will have these security enhancements.”
