Every decade was influenced by different architectural styles and trends, all of which shaped Arlington's skyline.

Art in Ironwrighting: What Makes Wrought Iron Doors Special?

When remodeling a home, many owners focus on either the interior or the exterior. However, it's what bridges the two that can create a truly attractive house.

We're talking about the doors and windows. They are your view of the outside, an entrance into nature itself.

And iron is one of the best door materials out there for many reasons.

Made for First Impressions

Have you ever stopped by a property to admire its front gate? Well, the entry doors are the gates to a house, giving every visitor a glimpse of what awaits.

You want to make sure to leave a lasting impression from the very first step into your home. And a wrought iron door makes a bold statement.

Due to its ability to be twisted into delicate yet ornate shapes, iron offers nearly unparalleled design options. You can have doors with intricate details that look like woodwork without a wooden door's vulnerability to the elements.

Or, you can opt for the complete opposite and have simple, minimalistic doors that can combine well with any style, letting the rest of your entryway impress.

Peerless Durability

Wood splinters, warps, and chips. But iron is nearly impervious to damage and the environment. With the right protective coat, it repels water and resists extreme temperatures without fault.

And wrought iron does all that alongside the capability to be molded into art pieces.

While steel doors are technically more durable in terms of impact resistance, their material wears out over time and requires more careful maintenance. Additionally, the industrial steel-casting process makes it impossible to simulate the level of detail and unique shapes of wrought iron doors.

Staying Secure

With all this talk about beauty and aesthetics, you might be worried that your new iron doors will be all form and no function.

However, rest assured that iron doors are among the best entry doors available for improving your home's security. Thanks to wrought iron's intrinsic impact resistance, the doors are a natural deterrent against intruders. Combine them with a reliable lock and you have a great recipe for safety.

Even if the doors have large panes, the double-tempered glass inside is much more difficult to punch through.

Furthermore, this type of glass is excellent for families with small children or large pets. If a pane happens to break, it shatters into large pieces that are safer to handle.

A Smart Investment

Big double iron doors might seem expensive and daunting, but don't let appearances fool you.

By choosing a high-quality door made from wrought iron, you're getting an entryway that can last a lifetime without showing wear and tear.

All you need to do is use the PINKYS Iron Doors Spray, and you can clean both the iron and glass features in one go.

Also, you'll even get a positive return on your investment if you decide to sell later. According to JLC, replacing a wooded door with a metal one passed 100% ROI in 2023.

Saving the Planet

While iron is a solid conductor, the modern door manufacturing process involves thermally breaking the doors by adding a layer of heat-insulating material between metal sheets. This means the heat from one side of the doors has a much harder path to the other, slowing down the temperature exchange rate.

By using doors made from thermally broken wrought iron, you can keep the house cooler during the summer and reduce your reliance on the AC.

It's not just the iron that makes the doors better for the environment. The glass panes can have low-E glass, which is transparent but reflects UV rays. The improved energy efficiency can help lower your energy bill and impact on global warming.
