What kind of patio cover is right for me?
Your patio cover will depend on use, the construction of your home, and your budget. Maclin Security Doors will always help you find the perfect one for your unique setup.
What maintenance will I need to do on my patio cover?
The level of upkeep for any of our patio cover products will depend on the material. You may need to repaint or reseal your patio cover after a number of years or extended, continuous use. Our technicians will go over all of your concerns during your personal consultation and give you peace of mind before any installation.
Will installing a patio cover increase my property value?
Yes! Patio covers are a permanent improvement that you make to your home. The addition of a patio cover raises your home’s resale value and adds true curb appeal for potential buyers.
What maintenance is required by the security doors?
At installation, our techs will apply a specially-formulated protectant to your security door. This helps to prevent wear and tear from sun, weather, and other factors. You should apply the same protectant to your door every three to six months. Wash your door and glass using only mild dishwashing detergent and a soft cloth.
Can you customize security doors to any size?
Maclin Security Doors offer standard sizes for our doors of 32” x 80” and 36” x 80.” However, we do offer a broad range of customization options for both door size and color. Discuss your unique needs with our installation experts, and we will work to get you exactly what you want.
Do you offer a repair service?

Will my door rust?

Where can a sunroom go?
Sunrooms are generally built on the sides of your existing home to create an outdoor feel that you can enjoy year-round. Your custom sunroom construction will depend on the total area of available space on your property. Talk to one of our installation pros about your unique project!
Is a sunroom the same thing as a solarium?
Yes. A solarium is simply another name for a sunroom. Sunroom construction uses almost all glass to flood your space with warm, natural light.
What are the benefits of a sunroom over a regular room addition?
In addition to the added living space, sunrooms are also more energy-efficient. Maclin Security Doors uses materials such as innovative glass and advanced insulation to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Our custom sunroom add-ons are also more affordable than standard additions. Sunrooms take less time to build, saving you more on labor costs, supplies, and construction time.
Is the glass in your sunrooms energy-efficient?
Yes. Our company uses technologically-advanced “Low-E” glass on every energy-efficient window in our custom-made sunrooms. This glass makes our sunrooms more comfortable and keeps your electricity costs down.
I am concerned about how a sunroom will look. Can you help?
Yes. Our company designs sunrooms to your specifications. We can give you insights into the best construction locations, adding special features, or installing additional doorways for a more natural flow. Let our skilled techs guide you from start to finish.
Can I view sunrooms that were built by Maclin Security Doors?
Yes. We have a full image gallery from past projects that highlights the quality of our work. Our company offers fully customizable sunroom options using the most advanced eco-friendly materials in the industry.
What is a screen room?
Screen rooms can be built on your existing patio. Our screen rooms are endlessly adaptable and give you a customized combination of kick-panel sizes and screen lengths. These features ensure your space is always accessible and comfortable year-round.
What are the standard sizes available for carports?
The size of your carport will depend on the layout of your property. The Maclin team will come to your home to conduct a thorough inspection and make suggestions based on our product options. Once you have agreed, we will handle your custom installation in next to no time.
Will my carport handle wind and snow?
Memphis is known for hot summers and cold winters with lots of rain, hail, ice, and snow. Our carports keep the weather off your vehicle 365 days a year, while giving you a safe, convenient way to enter and exit your vehicle.
What are your most energy-efficient windows?
All the replacement windows we use are ENERGY STAR-rated to give you better insulation and more savings on your overall energy costs. We also source our replacement windows from only brands best known for their energy-efficiency and limited carbon footprint.
What is insulated glass?
Insulated glass is two or more panes of glass that are separated by insulation at the edges and with air in the center. This type of construction provides greater thermal efficiency.
How do energy-efficient windows work?
Low-emissivity glass (“Low-E” glass) blocks the rays of the sun up to 90 percent. Heat stays inside the glass when it is cold and outside of the glass when it is hot. Low-E glass also offers many glazing, tint, gas fill, and coating options for optimal energy-efficiency.
Are your iron doors maintenance-free?
No. Iron entry doors do require a small amount of maintenance to keep them in the best possible condition. They are vulnerable to rust, dirt, humidity, and moisture. In order to maintain your iron entry door installation for life, simply remove these contaminants with gentle soap and water on a regular basis.
Do I need security doors for my home?
Criminals break into homes every 14 seconds in the U.S. But you can avoid being a statistic with custom security doors that are as strong and durable as they are beautiful. Talk to our installation technicians about our available products, as well as advanced features such as keypad entry.
Will high-security doors keep intruders out of my home?
Yes. Our security doors act as a major deterrent to crime. Custom-built to your specifications, we use the strongest, most advanced materials available and include multiple-door layers to effectively safeguard you and your family.
What else can I do to keep my home secure?

Our doors offer security measures such as heavy-gauge steel frames, adjustable, pneumatic closers, vault-pin doorframe hinges, polished brass deadbolt locks, and 1/8-inch tempered safety glass.
