Exterior Fiberglass Front Entry Doors
An exterior fiberglass front entry door combines a foam core and a fiberglass reinforced skin to achieve the image of a wood door that has improved durability, energy efficiency, and long-term performance.
Benefits of a Fiberglass entry door
Exterior fiberglass front entry doors provide the following benefits:
Multiple textured finishes to look like real wood. The molding process puts a deep wood grain into the fiberglass door. The panel profiles offer architecturally correct stile and rail construction and proportions as well as crisp shadow lines.
Designs that fit any style. Whether you have a colonial, classic, country, craftsman, contemporary, bungalow, cottage, arts and crafts, or colonial revival style home, there are fiberglass entry door styles and glass patterns that will make your entryway a focal point of your house.
Reduced cooling and heating costs. Many old steel and wood doors leak air and are rotted and warped. Fiberglass doors have a polyurethane foam core, which provides five times better insulation value than a wood door. You can also add energy efficient glass to improve energy performance even more.
Improved strength, durability, and performance. With a fiberglass reinforced skin, your door is resistant to dings, dents, and splintering. Fiberglass doors aren't affected by humidity or moisture and won't warp or rust.
Long Lasting door. Since fiberglass doors resist swelling and shrinking, their finishes last three times longer than a standard wood door.
Low maintenance. The fiberglass reinforced skin makes it easier to maintain than a wood door.
Improved security. Reduce the risk of threats or break-ins by adding a keypad entry or a deadbolt as well as a peephole.
Enhanced curb appeal and higher resale value. The first thing home buyers see is the front of your home. A new fiberglass door enhances your home's curb appeal.
