Any old door just won’t do—depending on where you live, your windows and doors may have specific requirements. There are certainly many decorative purposes for old and rustic doors, but for safety and security purposes, you don’t want to settle for less than the best.

  1. Hurricane protection via impact glass
  2. Reduced insurance rates due to the durability of the glass which may result in less damage
