Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey Composite Radar 26 August 2017

Is your door ready for this upcoming hurricane season? Weather.gov defines the Texas hurricane season as June 1st through November 30th with the peak threat for the Texas coast between August and September. These months are quickly approaching. If your door isn’t prepared, we have the perfect solution for you.

Is Door Material Important?

Yes! It is important to consider the benefits different door materials can offer you and your family. At Southern Front Stained Glass & Door we offer four different material types: Wood, Iron, Fiberglass, and Steel.

The Benefits of Wooden Doors

Wooden doors offer two main benefits – flexibility and insulation. Wood is also a natural insulator, protecting from temperatures and noise. Beyond this, we can customize the raised molding, color, and finish on your wooden door. And as hurricane season approaches we also have windstorm-approved options and use oil-based Miniwax®.

The Benefits of Iron Doors

Our 100 styles can feature one of six stunning glass options – Granite, Costworld (Rain), Reeds, Flemish, Glue Chip, and Clear. These doors bring an extra layer of security to your home by not only providing a formidable and prestigious appearance but also strength, deterrence of burglars, fire-resistance, and reliability. Government buildings and castles have used steel doors for centuries because of its strength.

The Benefits of Fiberglass Doors

Fiberglass doors offer unmatched versatility and customization options, and the insulating properties of fiberglass help lower energy costs. Most importantly with hurricane season coming soon, fiberglass is dent, scratch, and rust-resistant.

The Benefits of Steel Doors

Much like wooden doors, steel doors have high-cost effectiveness and energy efficiency due to their ability to keep out the heat and cold. Our steel doors have 18-gauge dent resistance, a built-in composite that prevents warping and rotting, and are reinforced with kick-proof steel. Their durability, however, does not take away from their appearance. All are available in satin finishes in the colors black, French grey, or oil-rubbed bronze, or antique finishes in the colors pale bronze, pewter grey, or copper bronze.

Which Will You Choose?

Each door material has its benefits, this is especially important as this year’s hurricane season quickly approaches. If you are not sure which would be best for you and your family contact us by email or call us at (281) 890-5860.
