Installing or Replacing Your Home’s Entry Door

When it comes time to install or replace an entry door, you have to decide between three materials: Wood, steel, or fiberglass. Deciding between these three options comes down to personal choice in regards to aesthetics, but fiberglass doors in particular can be the best choice for a variety of reasons. Choosing a fiberglass entry door is often your best option when replacing your home entry door in Chicago.

 

Wood Versus Fiberglass

A wood door, unlike fiberglass, requires maintenance and will ultimately deteriorate as any wood product would. Cold, humidity, other other weather conditions can affect a wood door. Today’s fiberglass doors give the appearance of wood without the maintenance and deterioration that ultimately happens with wood.

Steel Versus Fiberglass

Steel doors are fairly popular and a decent choice in terms of security and appearance. However, steel is a product that is by nature cold, and doesn’t add the durability of fiberglass. If a steel door is chipped or damaged, it can rust. 

Security Upgrades

All three types of doors can be upgraded for security. Those upgrades are generally applied to the frame. Security upgrades can include additional hinges, deadbolts, and other locks.
