Why you need a steel entry door


Durability

Your entry door is supposed to last for a number of years. When you spend a significant amount of money on a door, the last thing you want is to have to replace it too soon. Steel doors are the answer to your durability concerns. They are tough, and they will hold their shape no matter the weather conditions they are faced with. No matter how hot or cold it gets, you can rely on your steel doors to stand the test of time.

 

Safety

Your front door is one of the main components of home security. If you have a weak or poor quality door, it can be easy for somebody to break in. Steel entry doors will help you sleep easy since their toughness is great for durability as well as safety. The tougher your door, the better your defense against potential intruders.

 

Energy Efficiency

Apart from keeping intruders out, your front door also needs to keep the elements at bay. This means that it needs to keep the heat out in summer and the cold out in winter. Not only does your door need to fit the frame perfectly in order to prevent air and water infiltration, but it also needs to be made of the right material to prevent the transfer of cold or heat. Steel door manufacturers have taken the necessary steps to ensure that steel doors are poor conductors and this will help keep your energy bills as low as possible. Thanks to improvements in insulation techniques, we can enjoy the strength without sacrificing comfort.

 

Style

There is no denying the beauty of steel doors. They are elegant and can completely transform the look and curb appeal of any home. Your manufacturer will be able to offer a number of designs and colors which means that you can make a choice based on your preferences and the style of your home. You can even ask about different glass options and designs to add more character to the entry of your home.

Likely a good company for windows, installers seemed competent. However for doors they seemed to have much less experience. My salesman left the company midway through the process and I wasn't informed, and turns out some miscommunication between him and I led to a product I didn't want. The door is nice, just not what I had thought I ordered, and it took about 4 months to get, so I accepted it. The paint also chipped after they left, which leaves a bad feeling (even though that's more of a manufacturer issue than NorthShield issue). I'm not saying these guys are going to be bad for you, but I'm not thrilled with my result. REPLY December 5, 2018: I had called about the paint chip and wrong door options already at the time and was told there was no recourse for me. The paint chip was there when I came home from work after the door was installed, but you provided a picture the installers took before the paint was chipped, so at that time I was told there was no recourse. The wrong options I was told was due to a salesman who took my order having left the company, and there was no paperwork showing my chosen option (no door handle hole to be cut). I will call again tomorrow and update this with the results of that conversation.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Very professional workers that despite finding, no vapor barrier and wood rot on our deck, fixed it right and continued to install our very beautiful door and side light without complaint. I would highly recommend Northshield to any friends, neighbors or anyone else. I am a very Happy, Happy Gal with my beautiful new door!

Installation crew showed up on time. Brought coverings and tarps to contain any mess. Installation went smoothly and the guys were very polite and considerate. The old windows and frames were removed and the jobsite was clean when they left. Great work at a good price! Thanks Andy and Serge.

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.
