What type of cellar door is the best in Brooklyn?

We are often being asked which cellar door is the best, and we will answer the same way we answer every time we are being asked: the best cellar doors are the high quality doors. We know that is probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but this is the most honest answer we can give you. When you consider the fact that basement cellar doors in Brooklyn New York (from the high quality type of cellar doors) can last 20 years and more, it is easy to understand why investing in high quality doors is the right investment.
You can choose if to invest 500$ or 1200$, it is up to you. But when you buy a 1,200$ cellar door for your basement in Brooklyn, and you get a door that you can use on a daily base for more than 20 years. To purchase the 500$ cellar door, that will last for 5-10 years, and during that time will require few repairs (Like welding the hinges), you will find that the door that cost you 500$, ended costing you 2,500$ after 20 years, when if you would choose to purchase the high quality cellar door that cost 1,200$, you would still pay the same amount after all those years. (Not to mention the time that you would save when you were searching for a welder in Brooklyn to fix the cellar door for you, and wait for him to arrive).
