The main entrance to our homes commands the most attention from the street. It is therefore important that it’s aesthetically pleasing while keeping in mind that it should be of high quality material. There are different materials for front doors that are available in the market today, that will allow one to match what they prefer in terms of look and budget.
Fiberglass are normally moderately priced. They are dent resistant and require low maintenance. However, they can crack when subjected to severe impact. They are energy efficient and can be painted or stained. Steel on the other hand are inexpensive, low maintenance but are easily dented which negates it’s low maintenance feature as dents are hard to repair. Furthermore, scratches can rust if they are not taken cared of at once. Wood has the high end look which is often simulated by its counterparts. They are least likely to dent and scratches can be repaired easily. Wood is expensive though, apart from the fact that it requires regular maintenance such as painting or varnishing to get it to look its best.
Which material do you prefer most? Whatever it is, it’s best of you to note some practical considerations so you’ll enjoy that front door for many years.
