The finish should match the rest of the hardware. Door knockers not only come in many finishes they are available in many types of metal. The most stable metal and probably the most common is brass. Brass is easy to machine and cast into shapes. It polishes into a bright gold like finish or satins easily and is easy to maintain. Brass also electroplates readily. This allows it to be nickel or copper plated to simulate pewter and bronze finishes. Because brass is non ferrous it will not rust. It will tarnish though for this reason a good lacquer finish is needed or your purchase will look terrible in a very short time.

There really is no limit in this genre because the knocker is meant to reflect the homeowners unique personality. Installation FAQ If you are installing a new door knocker the best choice is a rear mounted knocker made from solid materials such as brass or iron. These will be more resistant to damage over time and offer a wider option of intricate designs. Rear mounting does require the door to be drilled for installation but this prevents theft of the knocker and ensures it will not fall off or break away from the door. If you are replacing an existing knocker it is important to measure the pre-existing holes and choose a new knocker carefully.
