Whether you are doing some home cleaning and notice them, or one of your house guests happens to tell you, tears in your wallpaper, and holes and marks in your walls are embarrasing. And over time only seem to get worse as they are pain to fix. If the original door stops were of a better quality and not always in need of replacing you wouldn't be here. But as it may, you are, and you want this to be the last time you have to get new door stops. We can't guarantee it, as kids are known for slamming doors, but under normal use, these door stops will last for years. The IVES base door stops are available from two base materials, aluminum, which are economically priced, and solid brass. The solid brass door stops may be ordered in premium finishes for a little extra.
