Exterior doors have a big impact on your home’s curb appeal, not to mention its security and weather protection. There are many materials to choose from, with wood, steel and fiberglass the most popular choices today. In this post, door and window installation expert Universal Roofing & Exteriors discusses the benefits of opting for fiberglass for your entry door replacement project.
1. Energy Efficiency
Fiberglass doors can make your home more comfortable by keeping it warmer when it’s cold outside and cooler when it’s hot outside. Compared to wood, fiberglass has a higher R-value, which means it’s better at resisting heat transfer and has better insulating properties. In other words, it’s more energy-efficient. This means a fiberglass door will help reduce your monthly energy bills, while also making your home more eco-friendly.
Fiberglass is more durable than other materials used for energy-efficient doors. Unlike wood, it doesn’t warp, bow or rot due to exposure to weather elements like sunlight and humidity. It also resists dents and scratches, the most common ailments of steel doors. With fiberglass doors, cleaning and maintenance are easier and less time consuming.
Fiberglass doors are available in a range of stylish options with versatile designs, finishes and colors. For example, Therma-Tru offers Classic-Craft® premium fiberglass doors that are beautifully detailed and with stain options that mirror the look of deep, earth tones of wood. If you have a contemporary home, you can browse their Pulse® collections and easily achieve a sleek, clean appeal for your exterior door.
