One of the most noticeable upgrades you can make to your home, for a minimal amount of money, is a new front entry door. It is like getting a facelift for your house. If you’re looking for ways to increase the quality of your home, this is the way to go.

So you’ve decided to invest in a new door. The next question you have to work through is what material to go with. You’ve probably heard that fiberglass is less expensive and more durable. But you want to do this right. Do you really want to go with the cheaper choice? Well, the truth is, it isn’t just the cheaper choice, it is the best choice.

If you are a smart shopper, you probably still have questions. Here are some answers to help you out:

Will a fiberglass door last as long as real wood? This is actually less a question of what material the door is made of and more a question of how well the door is maintained. Doors made from wood or fiberglass will both last a really long time, when properly cared for.

How does care differ between these two materials? A wood door should be re-finished every year on all 6 sides, to keep it safe from the elements. A fiberglass door can hold up for 5 years between coatings. But, even without routine finishing, fiberglass is still considered to be low maintenance. It can last years without being susceptible to mold, rust, or other deterioration.

Will fiberglass look like real wood? When you buy your Fiberglass door from the right company, like Window Nation, you will have many styles to choose from that give a real wood appearance. One style we think really shines is Therma-tru. They were the first to make wood grain fiberglass doors and are still considered by many to be the best. This is because they use multiple dyes to give the grain a sense of depth.

Will it have the same satisfying “thunk” of real wood? One of the things that give a door a feel of quality is that satisfying “thunk” it makes when you close it. Don’t worry. When you chose fiberglass, you don’t have to sacrifice the thunk. At Window Nation, we sell fiberglass doors with an internal structure that is made to replicate the same heft as wood. When your new door swings shut, you’ll be just as happy with Fiberglass.

If you’re looking for an entry door that is easier to maintain, less expensive, resistant to moisture damage, and just as opulent as a new wood door, fiberglass is the perfect choice.
