Why Fiberglass is Right For You
When choosing new entry doors or security doors for your home, the door material is always one of the first choices you’ll make. At Price’s Guaranteed Doors, we offer a variety of high-quality door materials to fit all your potential needs.
One such material is fiberglass, which can hold significant benefits over other common types. Fiberglass comes with both great efficiency and low costs of maintenance, plus several other potential positives. Let’s look at these.
Fiberglass doors come in a huge range of styles, colors and various finishes, and is designed to be able to fit virtually every possible home exterior out there. It’s also easily repainted, which makes it a perfect option for anyone who might tire of the appearance or a given color over time.
Fiberglass is the most durable of the door materials out there, will natural resistance built in to exposure to things like scratches. Fiberglass is completely resistant to rot and the kind of rust you’ll commonly see on doors that are made out of wood or steel, which is another significant plus. And finally, fiberglass doors are known for never bowing or warping due to any kind of extreme weather.
If they’re installed properly by one of our technicians, fiberglass doors are fantastic for security. Composite door frames have twice the holding power of food, and fiberglass doesn’t deteriorate over time like steel or wood doors – you’ll never have to worry about repairing an area that got hit with rust or deteriorated due to rot.
According to the Department of Energy, fiberglass and steel-skinned doors rate higher for R-values than wooden doors – this means they’re more thermally efficient on both ends of the spectrum. They trap in more heat during the winter, and allow for more cooling during the summer. A windowless fiberglass door will offer five times the insulation value of a similar door made of wood, which can be a huge factor for anyone concerned about their utility bill.
