We are remodeling my family's mountain home (built in the 60's) and I need recommendations for a secure front door and a good lock/deadbolt set.
A few criteria:
- The front door should be a 36" solid plank type door, with no recessed panels that weaken the structure. It could be a veneer over particle board, but I would prefer solid wood.
- The window should be a high and small "speakeasy" style- impossible to break and still reach the dead bolt. I am amazed how many doors just have a thin piece of glass between outside and the latch.
- The lock set should be high quality, resist picking and "bumping", and be strong enough to stop simple kicks.
Thanks for your input!
