A beautiful front or entry door is one of the first things that draws someone’s attention to a house and makes them take notice of it. A front door to a home can enhance a home’s aesthetic, incorporate unique design sensibilities, and even raise a home’s value. However, there are lots of options to choose from on the market – materials, design, and cost should all be taken into account. At Mr. Rogers Windows and Doors, we’ve made it a little easier to choose by carrying two types of entry doors – fiberglass, and steel doors. So which is best for you? Read on to find out.
Fiberglass Entry Doors
The ProVia Fiberglass Entry Doors we sell have all the aesthetic qualities of traditional wooden doors, without any of the downsides like wood rot or cracking. Our fiberglass front doors are low maintenance, and built to handle all types of weather conditions. Humidity and fluctuating temperatures are no problem with a fiberglass entry door, and their polyurethane core and Q-Lon weather stripping will keep the inside of your home the temperature you want it to be while reducing the cost of your monthly energy bills.
Fiberglass doors are dent resistant, and won’t warp or rot like a wood door can. They can also be stained a variety of colors to give them a surprisingly wood-like look, and can be outfitted with a variety of hardware, glass, and paint options to match your personal style. Simply put, they’re beautiful to look at and built to last, and a wise investment for any homeowner.
Steel Entry Doors
Is security your biggest priority? While our fiberglass doors are very durable and quite secure, steel doors offer even more in this department. Our steel doors are some of the safest on the market, with a door made from a single, continuous piece of steel, with foam-filled 18-gauge endcaps on both the top and bottom.
Even better, our steel doors look just as good as our fiberglass offerings, and are available in a wide variety of grains, styles, stains, and colors.
Other Things To Consider When Selecting a Replacement Front Door
Standard front doors are 80 inches by 36 inches wide. However, all of our doors are made to order and can be custom-fit for your entryway. You can also add things like transom windows or accent windows along the sides or above your door to add additional flair and styling to your entryway. Keep all of this in mind and make sure to bring this up when you speak to one of our representatives.
Another thing to keep in mind is the style of your home! While it’s a great idea to be creative and select something that’s truly unique, you’ll want to ensure that your new front door complements the existing architecture and design of your home. For a classic look, choose a paneled door in a traditional wood grain with glass insets. Want something more modern? Select something with a flatter design, modern color, and add a transom to make it look truly high-end.
