Homeowners are very aware of their home's security needs and do everything in their power to keep their homes safe and secure. Unfortunately, there are a lot of homeowners who overlook their doors and think that just about any door is good enough. This is not true; homeowners should always consider upgrading both the interior and exterior door lock systems. Upgrading the interior door hinges or replacing weak ones with stronger ones can really make a difference in the security of your home. Even if you are only focusing on upgrading the exterior hinges, this is an excellent idea because the interior door hinge is the weakest link in your home's security system.
C. Exterior Door Hinge One way to improve the strength of your doors is to install interior hinges that are stronger than those found on exterior doors. It may take some time to find the right combination of materials and designs that will work best for you but it is worth the effort. Most people who have replaced their exterior hinges have enjoyed great results; they were able to dramatically increase the security of their homes by protecting the most vulnerable parts of their doors - the doors at the weakest points. If the exterior door hinge is too weak, it may buckle under extreme pressure and collapse under the pressure itself.
D. The Butt Hinge One way to strengthen the hinges without spending a lot of money is to choose a butt hinge. Butt hinges are much like grooved hinges - the key difference is that the key piece, which is usually a metal strip, is not in a grooved pattern but rather shaped like a quarter. With a butt hinge, you are going to find that your door can now support two sets of doors. These are not the best choices for exterior door hinge if you want the weakest points to be protected - you are going to need to purchase one of the stronger types of hinges like the full leaf or even the full-butt hinges.
