MATERIAL

  • Steel is a good option if you are looking to save money and wanting the strongest barrier against intruders. The down side is the typical life span under duress is shorter than fiberglass and wood. Despite steel’s reputation for toughness it did not perform well in Consumer Reports testing for normal wear and tear to that of fiberglass or wood. The door can dent and is expensive to repair.

 

  • Fiberglass offers so many styles. Most give the look of real wood. Fiberglass doors can go years without needing paint or stain touch up. The product offers a tough coating  that is difficult for an intruder to breach, and the core of the product is foam and offers very good insulation. Pricing falls between steel and wood.
  • Wood tends to be the choice for many if searching for a more handcrafted look. Wood is typically the most expensive and requires the most maintenance, although it is easy to paint or repair. You should repaint or refinish every two years to preserve the door.

 

  • High Quality Vinyl offers energy efficiency, durability, basically maintenance free, and can be offered in a variety of colors.

 

  • Glass in doors can come with various patterns and  decorative or specialty glass. Your selection will depend of the type of door you choose and the manufacturer.
