What Is the Best Material for a Front Door?

What is the Best Material for a Front DoorIf you are hoping to transform the façade of your home, you don’t necessarily need to spend your precious time – and money – on extensive exterior renovations; simply invest in a new front door. By replacing your old, drab, outdated entry door with one that is masterfully crafted and designed to suit your taste and complement your home, you can instantly enhance its appearance, as well as its security and energy efficiency.

However, if you want to enjoy all of the benefits that a new front door should offer, it’s important to invest in a door that will give you the most bang for your buck. The best place to start would be to consider the door material, but with so many options, how do you know which one is right for you? Consider two choices that are rapidly gaining popularity throughout the country: steel and fiberglass.

Steel & Fiberglass Door Benefits

Both of these types of doors offer a plethora of unique benefits that homeowners find important, including:

Weather Resistance

Despite exposure to harsh UV rays, heavy winds, rainstorms, and other extreme weather conditions, steel and fiberglass doors have a long lifespan and are resistant to warping, rotting, and deteriorating over time.


Thanks to their incredibly tough, solid construction, steel and fiberglass doors are among the best solutions for property owners looking to enhance their home security.

Energy Efficiency

Steel and fiberglass doors both offer excellent thermal performance and will help keep your home warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer. This will reduce the strain on your HVAC system to maintain comfortable interior temperatures, and can lead to lower monthly heating and cooling costs.


Fiberglass and steel doors can beautifully mimic wood grain textures, and are available in a dazzling array of colors, finishes, hardware, decorative glass, and style options that can help you bring your vision of the perfect front door for your home to life.
