Iron Entry Doors?


Does anyone have any experience with iron entry doors? We have a customer that needs a new entry door currently a wood door with sun and some elements exposure. Im leaning this way, but was hoping for some real experience.

Heres a link to the iron door website.

Re: Iron Entry Doors?


We had a customer that we refinished their wood front door a few times and they decided to go for an iron door when it was time for another refinish job. We didn't have anything to do with the install or anything but I did get to see/use it when we were doing some other stuff. It was like opening a bank vault door. It was very nice but it was a beast. I'm glad I didn't have to hang it.
