What Is the Best Material for Front Doors?
Your home’s front entrance serves several purposes, from maintaining your family’s safety to keeping out the New England weather and conveying your personal style preferences to guests. With those needs in mind, how do you decide which front door material is the best for your home? The answer depends on your priorities.
Materials Commonly Used for Front Doors
In the not-too-distant past, wood was the primary material used for front doors. And while it’s hard to surpass the natural beauty of wood, the long-term performance of wood doors can be spotty because of the negative effects moisture can have on them. For this reason, other exterior door materials that are better able to resist the elements, such as steel, fiberglass, and vinyl, have become popular. Steel doors offer unmatched security and durability and require little maintenance, while fiberglass and vinyl doors are renowned for their energy efficiency. However, vinyl doors don’t offer the long-term durability that fiberglass doors do.
