The entry door is a huge part of your home's first impression. It makes a statement about your taste, and tells people what they can expect when they step into your home. So how do you determine which door is right for you?
When choosing a new entry door, the main factor to consider is functionality, and the best way to narrow down your options is to look at the material of the doors. The most common door materials today are wood, fiberglass, and steel. Southwest Exteriors, the San Antonio doors expert, discusses the benefits of each:
These are the most common. If versatility and beauty are your primary concern, then wood doors are an excellent choice. We offer a wide range of these doors in various styles, colors, and textures. Our custom wood doors come in the finest grades of oak, maple, cherry, pine, mahogany, alder, and fir. You can also get other wood species through a special order.
These come in a vast array of styles, many of which perfectly mimic the look of real wood. Fiberglass is tough and maintenance-free, making it a smart choice for harsh or humid climates. It neither expands nor contracts, so in an ideal setting, a fiberglass door can go for years without needing paint or stain touch-up. Southwest Exteriors offers a selection of fiberglass entry doors from ProVia®, which carry some of the best warranties you’ll ever find.
These doors have a sleek look to them and can have a very pleasing appearance with the proper paint job. They are a common entry door choice for security reasons as they offer the strongest barrier against intruders. Overall, steel is a durable and sturdy material to use for an entry door. We offer a variety of steel door options from ProVia to match any home design.
