Why do fiberglass front doors outperform wood front doors.

  • Appearance – With multiple choices of woodgrain finishes, paint colors, stained glass and other unique hardware options, fiberglass doors closely mimic the look and feel of solid wood doors. Some manufactures will even include knots and other character flaws making it virtually impossible to see a difference between fiberglass and wood.
  • Endurance – Unlike wood doors, fiberglass doors will not shrink, warp, split or crack due to the ever changing climate. Fiberglass doors will stand up to any climate – hot or cold, wet or dry. And because fiberglass front doors last so long, the best manufactures include limited lifetime guarantees.
  • Maintenance – A fiberglass door requires very minimal maintenance as opposed to wood doors. Depending on the exposure to the sun and weather, a wood door may require refinishing every 1-2 years.
  • Energy Efficiency – Fiberglass Front Doors are engineered to be energy efficient. Manufactures utilize high density foam cores, weather-stripping and dual and triple glazing to help keep the heat out in the summer months and the heat in the winter months. As seasons change, wood doors will expand and contract allowing for greater air infiltration, greatly lowering the efficiency of the door.
  • Cost – Fiberglass front doors offer longer durability and less maintenance giving the fiberglass front door option a greater long term value.
