Iron doors

I am building a home in NJ and considering using double iron front entrance doors. I was wondering if anyone has experience with iron doors in this area and could recommend a good company. Also, I was concerned about possible condensation and rust issues. Any experience with this?

Iron doors? You mean iron bars? Are you in the ghetto?

RE: Iron doors

lol!.. apparently you are not familiar with wrought iron doors!!.. they are actually very expensive and you likely wouldn't find them in the ghetto. Check out a website like abbyirondoors.com to see what I mean.

Do you mean doors with an iron insert? Or a solid iron door?

RE: Iron doors

I mean a solid wrought iron door ... It would have a glass insert and decorative iron grills on it. Examples are at abbyirondoors.com... But I have no experience with the company.

RE: Iron doors

A residential iron door is not solid iron. It is, more accurately, a steel-clad door. That is, usually a polyurethane core clad in up to 14 gauge steel (1.897 mm thick). Of course, there are security doors and jailhouse doors and Hell's Angels' clubhouses that have a lot more steel. But that's probably not what we're discussing.
