5 Types of Security Screen Doors That Protect Homes From Burglars


If you want to protect your home from burglaries, then you should install security screen doors. More and more homes are being broken into every year. And the worst part is, these crimes usually happen at night. That means homeowners don’t even realize their property has been targeted until they wake up in the morning.

For this reason, it is important to choose a door that has a level of protection that will keep intruders out and ensure that your family is safe against burglars with excellent service.

Here are 5 types of security screen doors that are proven to provide safety and protection:

Double-Hung Door.

These types of security doors typically have two large panels that slide open. They are great because they allow plenty of light into the room while keeping out the elements. To be able to slide them open requires less effort than pulling them along a track. This type of screen door is perfect if you live on an upper floor or balcony as well. They are also ideal for families with young children who tend to pull things off the shelves.

French Window Door

The main difference between double-hung and french doors is height. A french window door doesn’t have any glass panes so there are no hinges to worry about. Instead, they rely on a sliding panel that moves horizontally with ease. This makes them very easy to close and lock. Plus, because of this design, they can fit through small openings, making them perfect for homes with smaller windows. If you live in an apartment building, consider installing these security doors instead of single-pane glass ones.

Wood-Frame Door

If you prefer something traditional and old school, try adding a wood frame door to your home. It helps make the house feel like a real home again. You can get a custom-built version made by a local contractor or find a pre-made ready-to-install door online. Either way, you will be pleased with the results.

Vinyl Siding

Another option to consider when looking for a security screen door is vinyl siding. Unlike wood frames, vinyl siding can be installed easily and quickly without having to hire a professional. So if you need to do it yourself, you can save money by doing it yourself. All you have to do is buy the material and cut it to size. Then simply apply it to the side of your home and wait until it dries. Once it does, you’re done! But before you do that, however, check whether your area allows exterior finishes. Some cities require you to use exterior paint only, while others permit you to cover it with other materials too.

Glass Door

When picking out your security screen door, think about how much natural light you want to let inside. Are you looking for privacy? Or do you want lots of sunlight streaming through the door? If you answered yes to both of those questions, then a glass door might be perfect for you. In addition to preventing intrusions, glass is also energy efficient. Plus, glass provides a clean look that is easy on the eyes.

Security screen doors help you protect your home against burglaries. But if you don't know how to properly install one, you could end up having a door that does little good. So before you buy one, check out different types of doors!
