Exterior Doors and Front Entry Doors
Select Your Door Material
Wood doors are the most common door material due to their beauty and versatility. They can complement practically any architectural or design style, from contemporary and modern to traditional, rustic, craftsman, and everything in between. If you’re looking for a beautiful entryway with handcrafted flair, then a wood door may be the best choice for your home.
Wood doors are inviting and classic and come in a variety of wood grains and species that can be stained or painted for a luxurious look. Solid wood doors are susceptible to warping whereas many modern wood doors have an engineered wood core under wood veneer skins to virtually eliminate warping. As a natural material, though, wood is sensitive to the elements and needs to be maintained regularly in order to last a long time.
If you’re looking for a strong door that requires little to no maintenance and can withstand even the harshest climates, then you may be looking for a fiberglass door. Fiberglass doors are durable, long-lasting, and won’t warp, dent, scratch, crack, or rust regardless of the amount of sun, rain, snow, or wind your front door sees.
One of the best features of fiberglass doors is that they can be designed to mimic the look and feel of authentic wood doors and stained to match a variety of wood species for your desired effect. Additionally, fiberglass doors are energy efficient due to their polyurethanefoam core, which can help insulate your home.
Iron doors are an excellent choice if you’re looking for a sleek and durable door that won’t warp or crack. The quality of iron doors depends on the gauge – the higher the number, the thinner the material. Our iron doors come with 14-gauge steel, which provides premium, heavy-duty protection. Our Thermaplus iron doors come with 18-gauge steel dent resistant and kick-proof steel.
Iron doors are more energy efficient than wood doors and also provide the best solution for home security. Although iron doors are exceptionally strong, they are still susceptible to dents and scratches, which can eventually lead to rust if they’re not maintained regularly.
