Benefits Of Fiberglass Front Doors
In the late 1990s, fiberglass front doors were invented as an alternative to wooden doors. There are several advantages of fiberglass front doors. Fiberglass front doors are known for their attractiveness, security, weather resistance, affordability, and durability. Many home repair experts recommend them as the best choice for the average homeowner. With a fiberglass door, a homeowner will never have the problem of being unable to open the front door after a heavy storm because it has warped or swollen. Some homeowners prefer the look of real wood, but they are subject to warping, rotting, and problems with the finish. Fiberglass front doors mimic the look of wood and can be stained to match a variety of wood finishes. These doors are available in a wide variety of colors, styles, and sizes. They require very little maintenance to keep them looking new, and show less wear and tear over time than a steel door.
Fiberglass front doors are more secure than the average wood doors. While all doors will fail if enough pressure is applied around the area of the lock and strike plate, the typical fiberglass door will stand up better to battering. These doors are also relatively affordable, and a basic door that is 3 feet (0.9 meters) wide and 6 feet 8 inches (2 meters) tall costs about the same as a comparable wood door. Most come with long warranties.
