When you start looking for a new entry door you’ll see that while there are many different choices on the market today, you can start your search be looking at either a steel, fiberglass or wood model. Each has it advantages and disadvantages, so you need to get all the information you can to make an informed choice.
There’s a huge range of products when you’re looking for a steel door and you need to start your search by looking at gauge of the product. The numbers work opposite to the way you might have thought as the higher the number the thinner the steel. This is important since stronger gauges do not bend or flex as easily as lesser grades and paints well. Steel doors come in a variety of styles and colours.
Fiberglass is the new kid on the block that’s causing quite a sensation since it is very secure and safe and even resists dents and scratching. Stay away from cheap fiberglass models but remember that this material doesn’t need to be painted or otherwise finished to be low maintenance. Make sure to take note of the quality of the wood grain here as well.
Solid wood doors will resist most expanding and shifting although any time you select this material there’s always that possibility. Although you’ll need to keep up the finish annually, these are generally considered the most elegant for a residential home. Remember that quality costs and the wood door is the most expensive.
