Entry doors that are manufactured from fiberglass may not be the right solution for all homeowners.

Homeowners today are faced with many choices when it comes to installing new entry doors in Burnham, IL. When the time comes to replace their entry doors, most people simply want a door that won’t break the bank. The next most important factor people consider when replacing entry doors is how the door looks. Finally, energy efficiency is considered.

While we are led to believe that everyone is so concerned about energy efficiency when it comes to entry doors, the reality for most homeowners is that the door must fit within their budget. This is where fiberglass entry doors fail to be a strong replacement solution.

While fiberglass entry doors do provide excellent energy efficiency and stylish aesthetics, the fact remains that they are priced out of the reach of many homeowners.  It is possible to find cheap fiberglass entry doors from big box hardware stores, but they are of inferior quality and may be prone to U.V. damage and cracking.

Homeowners on a budget that are looking for an energy efficient option that provides the look of real wood should consider installing steel entry doors. High quality steel entry doors have polyurethane cores, which provide insulation levels that are comparable to fiberglass models. Also, steel entry doors can take advantage of magnetic weather stripping. This creates an almost airtight seal that further increases the energy efficiency of the door. When you are looking for affordability, energy efficiency, and great looks, steel entry doors offer the best solution.
