Fiberglass entry doors are a great option for homes that want to enhance their appearance without spending too much. These durable, energy-efficient, and attractive doors mimic the look of wood, but they are made of glass-fiber-reinforced polymers (GFRPs), the same material used to build Corvettes. As an added bonus, fiberglass entry doors don't warp or rot, and they don't swell or shrink like wooden ones do. Plus, they offer superior insulation, which can reduce energy bills.
A fiberglass door consists of three components: a high-impact fiberglass skin, an insulating polyurethane core, and a composite frame that resembles wood. While most fiberglass doors are solid, you can select those that feature glass panels or ornate window frames. Alternatively, you can choose to install a wood entry door. If you're looking for a traditional wood-door look, you can go for a solid wood door or an engineered wood one. Both types have a distinctive grain, and can give a home a more traditional look.
