Home entry doors need to pull double duty. They need to be tough enough to provide privacy and protection against all types of weather and would-be intruders, but also beautiful enough to make a great first impression. Upgrading your home’s entry door with a new door from SuperiorPRO will add to your home’s curb appeal while increasing your home’s security and energy savings.
The most important factor you should consider when choosing your home entry door is its material, which determines its appearance, durability, security, and price. The most common home entry doors are made of fiberglass, steel, or wood—each having their unique strengths and weaknesses.
- Steel: Steel doors are the most common type of front entry door due to their superior security, durability, weather-resistance, and affordability. New designs can even mimic the look of high-end wood doors. The downside to steel doors are that dents are hard to fix and scratches may rust if not painted promptly.
- Fiberglass: Tough and virtually maintenance-free, fiberglass doors are available with a smooth surface or an embossed wood-grain texture that can be painted or stained. They resist wear and tear better than steel doors but can crack under severe impact.
- Wood: Solid wood doors are available in a wide variety of species and offer the high-end look that other materials try to mimic. They resist wear and tear, are the least likely to dent, and any scratches are easy to repair. The downsides to a wood entry door are their initial investment price and they require regular painting, staining, or varnishing. They also need to be installed in a protected area such as under an overhang to reduce the likelihood of warping.
