The door lock is an extremely important component where security is concerned. The locking system of the door is essentially a multi-lever locking system. It is equipped with key operated dead bolts, no-bump nickel or brass finish cylinder locks. The doors may also be equipped with door chains and a key/spy hole to lift the bar of providing security even higher. The locking system is advanced in nature with the door opening only when the master key is inserted.

Wooden doors were the top most choice for most house owners as it added a regal feel to their home. These doors make a house look attractive. The wood grain has a lustrous shine that makes it stand out. You will need to carefully maintain the luster of the door by painting and varnishing the door regularly. However, these doors come with an expiry date. Depending on the type of wood used, these doors last for just about 25 to 35 years. They suffer from the general wear and tear and will no longer be as strong as they were earlier. They lose their sheen and tend to swell, bow, crack and warp. Due to the cracks and swelling, wooden doors are no longer able to provide your home with the much-needed insulation. These doors are very costly and pose a high risk of break-ins.
Heavy yet reliable, there is no comparison when it comes to a solid-wood door. Apart from being an excellent sound muffler, it is definitely a good insulator. Remember, wood is prone to swelling and shrinking as per changes in the humidity level, which is why you need to take extra care to ensure it lasts for a longer period of time.
