A front door does much more than just beautify your home – it protects it. As the literal entryway to your home, you want an entry door that provides the style and design you like, as well as one that will keep your home secure and your family safe. What that means is a front door that is well-built, sturdy, durable, and strong.
You might think that a strong door with a good lock is sufficient. Think again…
Usually, the problem isn’t the front door or the hardware; it’s the wood frame that surrounds the door. The weak points are found where the locks engage the frame. It does not take much effort for a determined burglar to kick down a strong front door with a weak frame.
Do you know that;
• A home intrusion is committed every 16 seconds in the United States
• Around 60% of burglars used 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.
Home invasion can happen to anybody at anytime, including you…
Some front door security devices like barricades or braces are a good solution to reinforce your door against forced entry. The downside of these devices is that they can only be armed when you are inside the house. They leave your home vulnerable when you are not at home or on vacation.
Today’s Entry Doors uses a proprietary installation method to enhance the security of the vulnerable points of your front door.
We go above and beyond just following door manufacturers’ installation instructions. We reinforce those areas of concern with individual 16 gauged galvanized steel plates, which are in turn secured to the house framing. Then on the other side of the frame, each hinge is also further reinforced. With proper back shimming, this not only adds strength, but keeps the door jambs from being spread apart. No other door dealer or Big Box retailer goes to these extremes to secure your home.
We know that buying a front door is about security as much as it is about looks and functionality. That’s why each and every new front door installed by Today’s Entry Doors will have these entry door security devices installed. By using our front door security hardware you will have peace of mind at home or even when you are out on vacation.
