The Advantages of Choosing a Fiberglass Door for Your Home


Are you looking for a new exterior or interior door for your home? Fiberglass offers the beauty of wood with the durability, security, and value of steel. Read this article to learn more about the benefits of choosing a fiberglass door for your home.

Look of Real Wood

Fiberglass doors look so much like wood doors that even professionals will have a hard time distinguishing between the two. A door company can stain your fiberglass door to look exactly like a wood door. New technologies allow door design companies to replicate the grain of authentic oak or mahogany.

High Resistance to Moisture and Rust

Over time, wood doors twist and warp due to moisture absorption. Fiberglass doors, however, will stay sturdy and never warp, even in the humid conditions of the Bay Area. You won’t have to worry about refinishing and protecting a fiberglass door like you would a wood door, either. In fact, fiberglass doors require less maintenance than even steel doors, and are very resistant to rust.

Top-Notch Security

Many people think of steel doors as the hallmark of security. But it’s actually easy for a thief to cut through a steel door using a knife or any other sharp object, unless the door is very thick. The same cannot be said of a fiberglass door, however, which won’t even dent if someone tries to kick it in.

Cost-Effective and Energy-Efficient

Fiberglass doors look just like wood doors, but they are a fraction of the cost. Over time, it is common for a wood door to warp, which leads to air pockets that decrease the comfort and energy efficiency of a home. Fiberglass, on the other hand, is very energy-efficient, and will maintain its impressive structural integrity.
