Your home’s entry is literally its first impression to the outside world, so it’s important to make a good statement. Whether you have friends or family coming to visit or you want the home to look good to potential buyers, the impression that your entry makes will carry throughout the rest of the house. If your entry doors look old, warped, or faded, that’s a good indication to outsiders of what your house will be like. Instead, consider a fresh, strong look of fiberglass entry doors.
Wood doors are high maintenance and can often swell and rot under the pressure of the elements if they’re not stained regularly. This is especially true in Milwaukee, where winter and spring can both be quite extreme. The cost can add up and become stressful for the homeowner. However, if there’s one thing that can be agreed upon when it comes to wood entry doors, it’s that they look great. That’s where fiberglass doors are a great option. They’re made to imitate the look of wood doors so exact that some homeowners claim they can’t even tell the difference.
There is, however, a distinct difference.
While wood entry doors require frequent maintenance, fiberglass entry doors are so low maintenance they almost require no maintenance at all. They don’t warp, swell, or rot. They don’t need to be re-stained or re-painted. They’re even strong enough to resist impact from heavy storms or from intruders. It can be exhausting having to not only buy an entry door to make a grand statement for your home’s entry, but to constantly keep that door in shape. With fiberglass doors, you can have them installed and trust that they’ll continue to impress for years to come.
We’ve discussed that fiberglass doors hold up to the elements well enough that your maintenance will be minimum. They also have one of the longest lifespans of any door materials on the market. It can last as long as 100 years or more. Again, you won’t have to repaint or restain it, but if you choose to do so, you can wipe down the door and make those cosmetic changes. The structure will continue to hold up for as long as you live in the house and likely even longer.
