What’s Not to Love About a Fiberglass Entry Door?

When Salt Lake City homeowners shop for front entry doors, many of them settle on fiberglass. The beauty and durability of fiberglass entry doors cannot be overstated. At Price’s Garage & Entry Doors, we have almost 75 fiberglass entry doors in stock in all colors, styles and designs. 

Fiberglass Entry Doors Are Affordable & Low Maintenance

One reason our customers choose fiberglass entry doors is because they are such a great bargain. They are less expensive than wood entry doors, and if you love the look of wood, you can get a fiberglass entry door that looks so much like wood that no one will be able to tell it isn’t real wood. 

And not only are fiberglass entry doors less expensive than wood, but they also cost less over time as well because they require hardly any maintenance. As beautiful as wood entry doors are, you must paint, stain or seal them usually once a year or so. Finishes on fiberglass entry doors hold up well for many years, and all homeowners have to do is wipe them down occasionally with a damp cloth. You can paint a fiberglass entry door if you decide you want a new look for your Salt Lake City home, but you must use the right kind of paint. 

Additionally, with a fiberglass entry door, you don’t have to worry about pests such as termites or carpenter ants, as these insects are not attracted to fiberglass.

Fiberglass Entry Doors Are Durable

While some of our customers opt to go with a steel entry door for its strength, a fiberglass door offers plenty of bang for the buck. Fiberglass entry doors are strong and durable, and they don’t ding and scratch as easily as steel does, so they look nicer for longer. They don’t rust, either. 

Plus, fiberglass entry doors are significantly lighter weight than either wood or steel. That means they’re easier to open and close, which is helpful when you have armfuls of grocery bags and it’s raining. Their light weight makes them quieter too, so there is no banging and slamming. 

Fiberglass entry doors are also a great choice for our climate here in Salt Lake City, where we have four seasons. They perform well in heat, cold and wet weather — they never warp or crack like wood entry doors can. 

Fiberglass Entry Doors Are Stylish

Options for styles of fiberglass entry doors are many — choose a door with glass or without, a door that mimics the look of wood or a door with overlay designs. If you opt for glass, you can get clear glass for the best views, or frosted glass for privacy. If you end up choosing a solid fiberglass entry door, you can add sidelights or a transom to brighten your entryway. We sell rounded fiberglass double entry doors, doors with matching sidelights and wood-look fiberglass barn doors, perfect for a farmhouse.
