Exterior Fiberglass Front Doors
Fiberglass front doors are currently one of the most popular options that home owners have available today. There are several advantages to choosing a fiberglass front door over a wood or steel front door. Fiberglass front doors are known for their attractiveness, security, weather resistance, affordability, and durability. Many home repair experts recommend them as the best choice for the average homeowner. With a fiberglass door, a homeowner will never have the problem of being unable to open the front door after a heavy storm because it has warped or swollen. Some homeowners prefer the look of real wood, but they are subject to warping, rotting, and problems with the finish. A fiberglass door will have none of these problems. Fiberglass front doors mimic the look of wood and can be stained to match a variety of wood finishes. These doors are available in a wide variety of colors, styles, and sizes. They require very little maintenance to keep them looking new, and show less wear and tear over time than a steel door.
Fiberglass front doors are good at keeping out heavy rains, and their weather resistance and durability makes them especially good choices in areas with humid or harsh climates. They have a higher energy efficiency rating than wood doors, but the difference is negligible since most energy loss occurs through cracks and poor weatherizing around the door, rather than through the door itself.
