Copper in turn oxidizes which protects it from rust and ages gracefully unlike other metals. These qualities make copper a good material for door knockers making them stronger and more durable for decades to come. Another material which bodes well for making door knockers is stainless steel. This material is famous for being strong and resistant to corrosion. Decorative door knockers made from stainless steel were very popular especially during the early 1900s. For those who wish to have traditional door knockers installed in their homes first they need to find out the type of installation procedure to implement.

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.
