Types of Exterior Doors
Whether you are interested in steel, wood or fiberglass entry door, all of our exterior doors are weather resistant and energy efficient to stand up to the sun, monsoon rains and extreme heat without rotting or warping.
Steel Entry Door
If you’re looking to save money, a steel door is a great choice, although its advantage over fiberglass and wood in this area is slight. Overall, steel offers the strongest barrier against intruders. Still, the attractive cost of a steel door comes with an important compromise: It probably won’t last as long. A steel door exposed to salt air or heavy rains may last only five to seven years. Despite steel’s reputation for toughness, it actually didn’t perform well in “Consumer Report’s” testing against wood and fiberglass for normal wear and tear. With heavy use, it may dent, and the damage can be difficult and expensive to repair. If your door will be heavily exposed to traffic or the elements, you may be better off choosing a different material.
Fiberglass doors come in an immense variety of styles, many of which accurately mimic the look of real wood. And if limited upkeep is your ideal, fiberglass may be your best bet.Fiberglass doesn’t expand or contract appreciably as the weather changes. Therefore, in a reasonably protected location, a fiberglass entry door can go for years without needing a paint or stain touch-up and can last 15 to 20 years. Although it feels light to the touch, fiberglass has a very stout coating that’s difficult for an intruder to breach; and its foam core offers considerable insulation. Fiberglass generally falls between steel and wood in price.
Wood Exterior Door
Wood is considered the go-to choice for high-end projects; its luxe look and substantial weight can’t be flawlessly duplicated by fiberglass or steel – though high-end fiberglass products are getting close. If your home calls for a stunning entry statement with a handcrafted touch, wood may be the best material for you. Wood is usually the most expensive choice of the three and requires the most maintenance, although it’s easier to repair scratches on a wood door than dents in steel or fiberglass. Wood doors should be repainted or refinished every year or two to prevent splitting and warping.
