One of the nicest exterior upgrades that can be done to a home is to change out its standard wood door for a wrought-iron one.
Wrought-iron doors exude elegance and old-world charm, and wrought-iron’s color and texture complements the desert landscape in such a way that the door makes an impactful first impression, especially if you have a Spanish Colonial, Mediterranean or Tuscan style home.
According to the Personal Finance section of USNews.com, installing a metal front door is the #1 investment that can be made to a home (in terms of preparing for resale). The article states that nearly 129% of the project’s cost is recuperated during resale.
Neighborhoods like DC Ranch have incredible wrought-iron doors. Check out a few examples below:
Doors with wrought-iron components
If you currently live in DC Ranch or Silverleaf, be sure to submit a DC Ranch or Silverleaf Modification Form to the Covenant Commission to get approval on the design, material and color of your door before you make any changes to it.
On top of style, wrought-iron doors are known to be energy efficient and incredibly durable (unlike wooden doors, wrought-iron is incapable of warping or rotting and can stand up to the most brutal weather conditions). Wrought-iron doors usually require little-to-no maintenance, are easily cleaned and can be customized to suit your particular design tastes. Since wrought-iron doors are customizable, doors can be unique pieces of art that differentiate your property from your neighbor’s.
In addition to all of these aesthetic benefits, wrought-iron doors increase your home’s security, as, unlike many wooden doors, wrought-iron cannot be easily kicked in or pried open.
If these doors have inspired you to check out a community that takes curb-appeal very seriously, contact a DC Ranch real estate expert on the Matheson Team today for more information on available homes for sale in DC Ranch and Silverleaf.
