Different Type of Front Door Materials

Posted Residential Doors

Not only is the front door of your home one of the first things people look at when entering, it also provides as a guard against the elements, and provides safety and security for your family.

Choosing what type of front door you are going to put as the focal point of your home is a big deal. One of the first steps to a new front door is choosing what type of material you want to pick. There are a few different types of front door materials to choose from. At Preferred Window and Door, we offer decorative glass doors, fiberglass doors, steel security doors and wood doors, just to name a few. Here’s a little more information on three materials we offer:

Steel: Steel is often times the least expensive option when searching for a front door material. This material provides security in addition to durability for a low cost. It is one of the most popular choices because it’s overall positive reputation for being a material that can withstand weather and provides excellent security. In addition to this, it does not require a lot of maintenance. The down sides to this choice is that the doors can rust and can be dented.

Wood: Wood doors are the choice to consider for people who are looking for an entry door with beauty and character. This is a route for people who are looking for a more traditional look and the wide range of options that are available to pick from allow it to be extremely customizable. These doors, however are usually a high-cost option and require a lot of maintenance and often times need to be replaced before a different material door.

Fiberglass: This material is a very popular option because of its durability and ability to withstand elements. They aren’t negatively affected by cold weather and are very low maintenance. It is very similar to steel doors because of its energy efficiency and easy installation, however because of the texture molded into the door you get more of the feel of a wood door.
