Medley of Materials

Wood material is the more expensive option, but many homeowners love their authentic woods when it comes to their entrance doors. Wood has always provided a decent degree of energy efficiency, the various types of woods like oak can be painted/stained or veneered, wood requires the most maintenance to perform well and wood can rot, crack and warp with changes in humidity, moisture and fluctuations in temperatures. Fibreglass is versatile, it is made either plain or in clad wood (authentic-looking wood-grain textures), which can be veneered, painted or factory finished, it is very resilient to all weather elements (it does not contract or expand like other door materials), it is strong, minimally conducts heat or cold (energy efficient), works well with framing and is super-low maintenance. Vinyl/PVC doors are about as durable as a door can get, they have 50 + years of longevity, are low maintenance, very durable and even hold up to scratches (they are painted all the way through), possesses thermal blocks in the frame (absorbs heat so no losses in the winter or summer – energy efficient) and withstands all weather conditions. Steel is a great material to use for an entrance door or a patio doors, but is less energy efficient than some of the mentioned materials, and is susceptible to denting. Steel is strong, it can be painted or provided with a factory finish and is cost effective. Aluminium is usually a sound choice for patio frame material & storm door material, as it resists the weather elements well, it is lightweight yet strong enough to carry glass panes, is ideal for sliding and swinging doors and is paintable or factory finished.

Details’ Diversity

The decision of what material to use, for what style of door that you are interested in, is half the battle won, but there are other considerations that you will be required to make. You should think about the panel type and choose if you want glass panels (these are the second and third biggest decisions). You will want to then think about your glass options (performance perks like Low-e coatings, decorative accents, impact resistance, textured glass and internal glass blinds or grids, just to name a few). Now, think about how you want your door to be configured (a single door, double door, sidelites & transoms) and the door swing (inswing or outswing) and the door handing (which direction the door will swing – (LH) left hand inswing or (RH) right-hand inswing). More details to think about are if you require sliding doors or hinged doors, (both offer various options), and whether you want a prehung system (includes the door hanging in its own frame & all parts needed) or just the door slab (are just the door itself, which is ideal if your current frame & parts are adequate to use with your new door). These are the bigger decisions when choosing door replacement Burlington.
