Medley of Materials

The top contender for many homeowners is fibreglass for entrance doors. 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. 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. PVC/vinyl material 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 & security-friendly, it can be painted or provided with a factory finish and is cost effective. For patio doors, aluminium is usually a sound choice for door frame 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.
