When choosing to place new entry doors on your home there are a lot of decisions that need to be made. One of the biggest decisions is what type of material they should be constructed from; the two top choices for most homeowners is steel or fiberglass. The question now becomes what is best for your home? The pros at Window Nation want to provide you with some helpful information about both materials to hopefully aid you in the decision making process!
Whether you ultimately decide to choose steel or fiberglass entry doors there is no right answer; both are high quality materials that create a high quality product that you will be proud to have as part of your home. Choosing which material is right for your home is a personal decision. Listed below is some helpful information from the pros at Window Nation about both steel and fiberglass entry door systems.
Steel entry doors from Window Nation are created using 20-gauge galvanized steel, meaning it contains about 49% more steel than a consumer-grade door; creating a functional door that is beautiful and superior in its durability.
Entry doors created from steel are extremely energy efficient thanks to their polyurethane core, and the bulb and blade door sweep which controls drafts helping to keep you home at a more consistent temperature.
Our steel entry doors have a rot-resistant wood frame and brick mold that is treated with PineGuard™. The window trim is heat resistant and is guaranteed not to warp, crack, or pull away from the door; all these features mean that our steel entry doors are made to last and will last into the future!
For any homeowner security is a top priority, and our steel entry doors come equipped with a 20 gauge security plate, Trilennium™ Multi-point hardware, Legacy™, and a rigid composite lock block. With a steel entry door in place you can sleep soundly at night knowing that your family will be kept safe.
Fiberglass doors are another great option for many homeowners. With high durability and endless glass and style options, there is a fiberglass door to fit the needs of any home.
Fiberglass doors from Window Nation are 5 times more energy efficient than wood doors due to their polyurethane foam core. Fiberglass doors have Tru-Defense® Door Systems; this means that the seal between the door and frame increases the energy efficiency of the door in extreme temperatures and weather (wind and rain).
Just like steel entry doors, fiberglass entry doors are extremely durable and hold up very well over time. This is due in part to the rot-resistant frame which is created through the use of finger-jointed composite ends. Our fiberglass doors are heat tested to ensure that they can hold up in extreme weather and will not become prone to cracking, warping, or swelling. They are also water infiltration tested to ensure that no amount of water will make its way into your home because of an improper seal.
Fiberglass entry doors also help to add to the security of your home. The doors are equipped with a multi-point locking system created from stainless steel which helps to prevent problems with rust and corrosion.
