Fiberglass entry doors are relatively recent advancements in the world of entry doors, but they’re becoming a favorite among Milwaukee homeowners. They have the classic look of wood entry doors, so convincing that some homeowners state they haven’t even been able to tell the difference. However, they offer a number of benefits and durability that wood entry doors simply don’t offer, at least not without constant maintenance and the costs that come with that.
So why should you choose a sturdy fiberglass door for your home?
Fiberglass entry doors might have the look of wood doors, but they couldn’t be more dissimilar when it comes to upkeep. Wood doors need to be frequently stained and protected from swelling, rotting, and splintering, all things that wood naturally does when exposed to the elements. Fiberglass, on the other hand, doesn’t swell, rot, contract, or warp, no matter what Milwaukee weather might throw at it. These doors are immensely durable and require almost no maintenance, so you can simply enjoy them for decades to come without the headache.
Fiberglass doors come with foam insulation that, combined with their durability, makes them more energy efficient than wood doors. This insulation helps to keep hot air from escaping the home in the winter, as well as preventing drafts. It also helps the door not to be cold to the touch in winter or hot to the touch in summer. The best benefit, however, is that your home will be more comfortable throughout the year, without your HVAC bills spiking.
Fiberglass is a tough material, one that resists denting, scratching and other damage. However, the best benefit to the strength of these doors, is the security. Fiberglass doors are much more difficult to kick in than wood doors, as well as harder to break through. With thick gauge steel reinforcement to the door jamb, you’ll be able to rest easily at night, confident that your home is safe from intruders.
These are a few reasons to choose a fiberglass entry door for your home, but there are many more. Want more information on the right entry doors for your Milwaukee home? Contact Homesealed Exteriors todaywith any questions or to request a free estimate.
