Tips For Buying Mobile Home Doors - Exterior Or Interior
Doors are an important part of every home, whether mobile or regular type. Depending on the entrance on which they are installed, doors serve a number of purposes, including the provision of security and privacy. Doors are also an important part of both interior and exterior home décor and they come in different types depending on size, the material of construction, design, operation mechanism, shape, finish, and function, among other things. When shopping for a particular type of door for your mobile home, there are definitely a number of factors to consider. The selection process alone can turn out to be quite daunting if you have no idea of what to look for. To help you make the right pick, here are a few tips for buying mobile home doors you might want to look at.
Choosing Exterior Doors
In most cases, exterior mobile home doors are metal bonded and often come with thick foam insulation. They are designed to provide a higher security level, and therefore come with high-quality exterior door locks and knobs already installed. Of course, exterior doors come in different styles, designs, shapes, and sizes too, some of which are available as custom options. When choosing an exterior door, be sure to consider the level of security you need, as well as the durability of the door in terms of operation and finish. Choose an exterior door of good quality and construction to keep away the bad guys from breaking into your property or invading your privacy.
Choosing Interior Doors
For bathrooms, bedrooms, closets, cabinets, and other spaces or rooms in your mobile home, you may need to install a new door or change the existing one to suit your convenience and preferences. Interior doors are mainly for the purpose of privacy control, even though various options provide some level access control as well. Most of them come pre-installed with levers and knobs, often lockable from one side of the room or none. They also exist in a wide range of sizes, styles, shapes, and finishes. Aluminum and wood are the most common options for interior doors available. When choosing an interior door, remember to consider the look and feel it creates with the rest of your indoor styles and finishes as they play a key role as far as interior décor is concerned.
Door Knobs and Handles
Security and operational convenience are some of the most important factors to consider when choosing a door. After choosing a sturdy and stylish exterior door that is practically impenetrable bu burglars, the operational mechanism is a key factor to look at. This is provided for mostly by the knobs and handles. Every room or passage in your home with a door will normally have a hardware structure that you hold to let yourself in or out of the particular room. These are handles and knobs. When it comes to interior and exterior door handles, there are normally two common types to expect from the market, even though types may vary depending on the type of door, the design of the room or house and such. The most common ones are knobs and levers. However, some are also available as locksets, which incorporate both lock and handles.
Door Knobs: Just like their name goes, knobs are a form of spherical and semi-spherical structures and may either come with a push and turn button as a locking mechanism suitable for rooms requiring some privacy such as the bathroom and the bedroom. These are known as bed or bath knobs. Closet or hall handle knobs do not necessarily have locks. Where simple punch and pull feature is required, dummy knobs are quite functional.
Door Levers: Just like with knobs, there are generally three main types of levers. These are bed or bath, hall or closet, and dummy lever handles. They also come with a push-turn button, lack a locking function and serve push and pull functions respectively.
