Quality front doors are designed to last for years, keep your home more secure, and add a new focal point to your curb appeal. One of the big keys to finding the right entry door is choosing the right material. There are several popular material options for homeowners today, but you can get the most out of your money if you choose fiberglass or steel.
Fiberglass and steel entry doors stand the test of time and make your home more efficient and beautiful. Both options have something to offer for homeowners, and the right choice for you depends on your budget and personal preference.
Steel vs. Fiberglass: What’s Right for You?
The truth is that homeowners really can’t go wrong with either option. However, there are some slight differences between the two materials. Fiberglass is perhaps the most popular entry door material in Westminster. It is engineered to give the appearance of wood, which is perfect if you’re yearning for a wood front door but don’t want to deal with the hassle of maintenance.
Fiberglass is also highly resistant to scratching and denting, especially when you compare it to traditional wood doors. Universal Windows Direct’s fiberglass doors are engineered with reinforced skin that keeps it looking beautiful from year to year.
Steel doors are also very flexible in terms of aesthetics. While many homeowners picture a door that is the color of stainless steel, you’ll be surprised to learn that you can have nearly any look for your steel door that you desire—including wood grain patterns.
If you want a truly unique look for your door, you can also opt to have your front door primed and get it painted any custom color that you choose.
Universal Windows Direct has a vast paint color selection that can give your steel or fiberglass door. There is also an extensive selection of hardware options to add interest and extra security to your door. Furthermore, homeowners can add transom windows, sidelites, and other windows to allow more natural light into the home.
