Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Interior doors are not as important when choosing quality but interior and exterior doors and hardware will last longer if selected with quality in mind.When selecting new hardware be sure to coordinate by color materials and style. This includes the lock hinges door knocker and coach lights if present. A door knocker is one of the most beautiful and prominent pieces on the front door of a house and reflects a lot of information to visitors about what to expect inside. The simple addition or replacement of an older knocker can completely transform the entire appearance of your entryway and add new elegance to the exterior of any home.

Pay close attention to what the door knocker is made of. Some manufacturers get away with making low quality zinc or pot metal castings look good for a short time using plating techniques. The problem with these is the good looks do not last. Soon the plating is chipping and pealing away and corrosion is taking over. What type of mounting is needed? Most door knockers employ either through the door mounting or surface mounting. Through the door mounting involves drilling holes through the door. The mounting hardware passes through these holes and attaches to the door knocker on the outside. On the inside decorative nuts are used to secure the door knocker to the door. Surface mounting uses screws to attach the door knocker to the door.

Knockers were common and practical in Dickens era but theyve since become replaced by the electric doorbell as the standard alert. Some people use them as decorative ornaments but unlike the knockers from the mid-1800s they serve no practical purpose. Doorways and entrances help define the architectural style of the rest of the structure and any elegance bestowed upon them sets a house apart from its neighbors. While the porch is a gathering place a quality door knocker is the focal point of the entryway. Door knockers dont have a written history but as long as there have been doors there have been alerts that signal a visitor.
