Exterior doors like your main entrance door to your home and your patio door, should be energy-efficient, strong (the most used doors in your home) and durable.

Steel is strong (often chosen for its strength and better security), it can be painted or provided with a factory finish and is more cost effective than some other door materials. 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. PVC/vinyl is 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. 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. 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.
