When it comes to choosing a front door, it’s important to understand what your options are. There are three important factors that you should take into consideration when searching for the right door for your home! Those factors are; a sense of security, best bang for your buck, and a sense of expression. Homeowners should find a balance of these three in order to find the door that is right for them. Lucky for you, we narrowed it down to the top three most common doors that are out there and covered these three bases!
If you’re looking for a door that is low in price and increases a sense of security to your home, this is the door for you. Steel doors are commonly inexpensive and are very well known for their durability against unwanted visitors. Unfortunately, these doors tend to rust over time and are harder to repair if there are any dents, which ultimately leads to a shorter lifespan. This option is great for people looking for the most secure and lowest cost option.
Wood doors work best if you are looking for a more traditional look for your home. Generally, this door costs a lot more than both steel and fiberglass, especially if you’re looking to customize it. Although, these doors require a lot of maintenance to prevent it from rotting and warping, they are easier to repair and can last you a very long time. This door works best for those who don’t mind the price and maintenance in exchange for durability.
Fiberglass doors are the most popular option because of the flexibility it grants in its customization options. In contrast to wood doors these doors require little to no maintenance and are very durable. Although they are not as expensive as wood doors they are a bit more expensive than steel doors. This option would be perfect for the person looking for a door with freedom in customizability, durability and a middle price point.
